Coco Gauff said before the match in New York: “I never thought I would ever be in this position, especially after she retired and came back. She’s still a really fit player,”

“It’s not going to be an easy match. She probably knows my game pretty well. I know she’s watched tennis when she was retired.

“I know a little bit of her just from watching her growing up. It’s going to be really cool. I’m excited. Playing a legend like her is really exciting.”
