Congratulations to former “Little Mo” champion Coco Gauff (#6 WTA) on winning the 2023 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York! Gauff defeated Sabalenka (#1 WTA) in the finals (2-6, 6-3, 6-2) making her the youngest women’s champion since Serena Williams in 1999 at age 19. It was also her very first career major singles title!
As a junior player, Gauff won the 2012 “Little Mo” Nationals in Austin, Texas and the Nesquik “Little Mo” Internationals in Forest Hills, New York as an 8-year-old! Later that same year, she was the Girls 8 Singles and Girls 8/9 Doubles champion at the “Little Mo” Internationals in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
We are so proud of her and glad that the “Little Mo” was such a memorable part of her tennis career – keep up the great work!
