Coco Gauff is also doing the family proud, having reached the third round of the French Open after defeating Slovenia’s Tamara Zidansek 6-3, 6-4 on Wednesday.

The weather conditions in Paris have been wet and cold, leading to match interruptions in both the men’s and women’s categories. Following her match against Zidansek, Gauff mentioned the challenges she faced with the weather.

"It was really slow [conditions] today, so I felt like my balls weren't bouncing as much as normal. I think it's just with the humidity from all the rain ... which I think caters to her game a little bit more," Gauff said. (According to
"There's always things you can do better, and I try not to overanalyze everything," she added.

Coco Gauff will face World No. 32, Dayana Yastremska, in the third round of the French Open on Friday. This will be the second time in two months that Gauff will be facing the Ukrainian. Their previous meeting came in the second round of the 2024 Madrid Open, where Gauff defeated Yastremska 6-4, 6-1.

Gauff has an impressive record at the French Open, having previously reached the quarterfinals twice and the final once. Gauff has also had a remarkable season so far. She successfully defended her title at the ASB Classic in Auckland, and has won 25 matches and lost only 8 across nine competitions that she has featured in.

Yastremska, on the other hand, advanced to the Australian Open semifinals before losing to Qinwen Zheng in straight sets. However, since her Australian Open run, she has struggled for form, evident from the fact that she has failed to progress beyond the third round of any WTA tournament.

Gauff will start the game as the favorite, but Yastremska will be determined to put up a fight.
