The final score in the finals was 6-3, 6-4. After a hard-fought battle of breaks and re-breaks, the American talent won the first set but upped her level in the second set to comfortably finish the touching line in straight sets. She had the chance to close out the match in the eight-game on serve but the Czech player fought hard to save three match points.

The first-ever WTA-1000 win by the American youngster was welcomed warmly by the tennis community. Her victory over the Polish World No.1 Iga Swiatek in the semi-finals itself was the main talk of the Women’s tennis world. It was the first victory of the American over Swiatek in eight attempts.

The American star Coco Gauff’s best result in the US Open is her quarter-final appearance last year. With the confidence gained from the Cincinnati triumph, Gauff will definitely be trying to better her results this year. Her best-ever Grand Slam performance is the French Open runner-up place in 2021, where she lost against the World No.1 Iga Swiatek.

The determined Gauff said after the Cincinnati title, “This is unbelievable. I’d like to thank my lord & savior Jesus Christ. I spent a lot of nights alone crying trying to figure it out. I still have a lot to figure out, but I thank him for covering me.” She was, as expected, in high spirits after this emphatic win.

Other than Gauff, the Polish star Iga Siwtaek, Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina, and Ons Jabeur will be the heavy favorites to clinch the prestigious trophy at the Flushing Meadows this year.
