Coco Gauff and Catherine McNally after winning the Citi Open doubles, their first WTA title

Tennis teenage sensation Coco Gauff has won her first WTA title, with another American teenager, 17 year-old Catherine McNally.

The teens triumphed in the doubles of the Citi Open in Washington D.C, beating No.4 seeds Maria Sanchez of the United States and Fanny Stollar of Hungary, 6-2, 6-2.

The American teenagers needed 65 minutes of play to take home the championship trophy after another superb performance.

They claimed their first title in their first WTA event as a tandem — similarly to how they won last year’s US Open junior doubles title in their debut performance as a duo.

The victors won two-thirds of points on their services, while also winning 56 percent of points when returning. Gauff and McNally broke their opponents six times in the match, while only dropping serve twice.
