The sensational run continues for the 15-year old Coco Cori Gauff as she stunned defending Champion and 2-time grand slam winner Naomi Osaka in her third-round clash. Seeking vengeance for her US Open loss against Osaka, Coco Gauff exacted it, point by point, leaving Osaka dumbfounded on certain occasions as the American teenager entered the fourth round for the first time on her debut appearance at the Australian Open.
Coco Gauff continues to amaze and one finds it often surreal to believe that she is only 15, given how her mental calmness shows signs of sparking greatness. Being absolutely calm during tense situations in the match is no mean feat to achieve for any player, let alone a teenager. Coco Gauff stunned Venus Williams yet again in their first-round meeting in Australia before Sorana Cirstea briefly troubled Gauff in the second, taking a set off her. Against Osaka, Gauff was in phenomenal form while the defending champion was not enjoying a good day at the courts. She defeated Osaka in straight sets 3-6, 4-6 to enter the fourth round.
Awaiting Gauff now is the challenge of Sofia Kenin, who at 21, is trying to reach her first Grand Slam quarter final. The duo have not met each other previously on the court but with Gauff playing, it can be anticipated that it will be a high-octane match, which could swing either ways. Given how confident Gauff looks currently, especially after causing the Osaka upset, she is the undoubted favourite going into the match.
