Coco Gauff recently announced the conclusion of her incredible 2022 season. She stated that she will never forget this campaign and thanked God for giving her strength at both her lowest and highest points this season.

"We live, we learn, but mostly importantly we keep trying. 2022 season is officially over and definitely one I’ll never forget. Thank you God for strengthening me at my lowest and highest points this season. #thebestisyettocome," Coco Gauff said in a social media post.

She reached her first Grand Slam final this year, losing to Iga Swiatek at the French Open. Together with Jessica Pegula, she won three doubles championships (in Doha, Toronto, and San Diego) and rose to World No. 1 in the doubles rankings.

She eventually progressed to a career-high singles ranking of No. 4 in October and is currently ranked seventh. She became the youngest to qualify for the WTA Finals since Maria Sharapova in 2005 and the youngest American since Lindsay Davenport finished runner-up in 1994.

With the US team losing to the Czech Republic in the Billie Jean King Cup, her spectacular season concluded with a five-match losing streak. In her 2022 season, Gauff played 104 singles and doubles matches at the tour level.

In a recent interview with The Palm Beach Post, Gauff that she had a great 2022 season and hopes to perform even better in 2023.

"Obviously it was a great year. I have a lot of high expectations for myself. Overall, I think it’s the best year of my career so far. It’s the most I’ve played tournament-wise. I hope next year is even better,’’ said Gauff.
