  • First-time finalist Coco Gauff I showed I can play at a top level

She missed one match point as the German hung in there, but converted her second to become the youngest finalist at a WTA event since Nicole Vaidisova, the 2004 Tashkent victor. Nicole Vaidisova previously held the record in 2004.

Her feat has been made even more incredible by the fact she only qualified for the tournament as a lucky loser, after an injury to former Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber.

"I've had a lot of luck and happiness here", she added.

Gauff, who is now ranked 110th in the world, lost the opening two games of the match, but then didn't look back as she claimed the first set 6-4 before a more straightforward 6-4 second set win to secure her final spot. The athlete then beat top-seed Kiki Bertens on Friday to make it to the semifinals.

'This was one of the highest-level matches I've played.

"I'm not the most confident with it but it worked well today", she said.

This is Gauff's first WTA tournament since she left the court in tears after a heavy defeat by two-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka in the US Open third round. "It was an emotional moment - good and bad emotions".

Gauff stunned the world in the summer when she beat seven-time Grand Slam victor Venus Williams in the first round of Wimbledon on her way to reaching the fourth round of the event.

Speaking to PEOPLE in August, the tennis star said that the transition to overnight sensation has been challenging.

Also, Gauff is the youngest American with the top-10 victory since Caprilati in San Diego 1991, cracking the top-100 as the youngest competitor since January 2005, hoping for more of the same in the rest of the tournament as she certainly wants to go all the way and lift the WTA trophy in an already a memorable season that saw her reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon as a qualifier and the third round at home Major in NY. "I guess every little thing counts". "I think I'll keep using it until it doesn't work so well anymore".
