Coco Gauff credited her father, Corey Gauff, for her title win at the 2023 US Open. She revealed that despite others' attempts to create distance between them, he played a pivotal role in her securing the victory.

During her post-match interview, Gauff expressed her gratitude for the unwavering support of her father, who has been a pillar of strength throughout her journey.

Despite facing constant attempts to undermine their bond by those who believe he shouldn't be involved in her training, the 19-year-old emphasized the invaluable role Corey Gauff plays in her life.

"That man has supported me through so much. People always tried to tear us apart, saying he didn’t need to be in my box or he didn’t need to coach me anymore. Little do they know, he’s the reason I won this match.” she said.

Coco Gauff revealed that her father was the first person she sought out after her win, and she witnessed him shedding tears for the very first time. She also mentioned that he had previously denied shedding tears during the French Open, but today, she could unequivocally confirm it.

"He was the first person I saw. That was the first time I saw my dad cry. At the French Open, he claims he wasn’t crying. But today, I saw it. I rarely see my mom cry either.. That moment. I’ll never forget that ever. I’m so happy," she said.
