Tennis star Coco Gauff has every reason to celebrate. She snapped pictures in a cap and gown in front of the Eiffel Tower to commemorate her graduation from high school.

The American phenom is in Paris preparing for the French Open, which kicks off on Sunday.

Gauff received her degree from the Florida Department of Education after completing her coursework at Florida Virtual Flex. The 18-year-old pursued her education while embarking on a successful professional tennis career, balancing the two over the last four years.

Making her WTA debut at 14 years old, Gauff burst onto the scene in 2019 after downing Venus Williams in straight sets at the Wimbledon Championships.

The tennis wunderkind has been climbing the ranks since her inaugural season, now ranked No. 18 in the world.

Gauff will face off against Rebecca Marino in the first round of the French Open on Sunday.
