The Youngest Player To ever Qualify Keeps On Winning At Wimbledon

Nik Zecevic

Teenage sensation Cori “Coco” Gauff dispatched Slovenian veteran Polona Hercog, 3-6, 7-6, 7-5, in third-round action at Wimbledon on Friday.

The 15-year-old, who made international headlines with her first-round upset of her childhood idol Venus Williams, is now just one victory away from the quarterfinals at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club.

Her fourth-round opponent will be Romanian Simona Halep on Monday at 5 a.m. ET. Halep is currently the world’s No. 6-ranked women’s singles player and won last year’s French Open.
