Coco Gauff given hero's welcome home after dream Wimbledon run

Cori “Coco” Gauff said she is ‘living proof that everything is possible’ while celebrating her homecoming in Florida following a dream run at Wimbledon. The 15-year-old was the story of this year’s Championships, attracting the largest British TV audiences of the tournament as well as lavish praise from Michelle Obama and many more. The American, who is the youngest person ever to qualify for the main draw at SW19, was knocked out in the Round of 16 by the eventual champion, Simona Halep, but beat Venus Williams, Magdalena Rybarikova, Polona Hercog in the previous rounds. Speaking in Delray Beach, the world No 141 confirmed her next tournament will be the Citi Open, and then the US Open, adding that she thinks ‘I can go as far as I want to.’
