Coco Gauff, 18, headed to first French Open final
American teenager Coco Gauff has reached her first Grand Slam final by beating Martina Trevisan of Italy 6-3, 6-1 at the French Open.
The 18th-seeded Gauff will face No. 1 Iga Swiatek for the championship on Saturday.
Swiatek is pursuing a second title at Roland Garros. She ran her winning streak to 34 matches by defeating No. 20 Daria Kasatkina 6-2, 6-1 on Thursday.
Gauff and Trevisan were even at 3-all during the second semifinal on a sunny, breezy afternoon at Court Philippe Chatrier.
That's when Gauff grabbed the last three games of that set.
The 18-year-old has won all 12 sets she's played in the tournament.
