Naomi Osaka withdraws from Wimbledon
Osaka withdrew from the French Open after the first round.
Coco Gauff is on a roll.
The 17-year-old beat Ons Jabeur on Monday 6-3, 6-1, losing only nine points on her serve. She was also effective at the net, winning 13 of 17 points when she came forward.
With the win, Gauff advanced to her first appearance in a Grand Slam quarterfinal.
“I feel like this has been the most consistent tennis I have played at this level,” Gauff said. “Hopefully I can keep that going.”
Next up Gauff will face Barbora Krejcikova, who will also be playing her first quarterfinal at a major. Krejcikova beat 2018 French runner-up Sloane Stephens in a blowout, winning in straight sets 6-2, 6-0.
