Gauff wins the US Open, gets congratulated by Swiatek
At the age of 19, Gauff became a Grand Slam champion.



Shortly after completing the biggest achievement of her career, Gauff had a message for those who didn’t really think she could win the US Open. “Thank you to the people who didn’t believe in me. Like a month ago, I won a 500 title (Washington, DC) and people said I would stop at that.

Two weeks ago I won a 1000 title (Cincinnati) and people were saying that was the biggest I was going to get. So three weeks later, I’m here with this trophy right now. I tried my best to carry this with grace and I’ve been doing my best.

So, honestly, to those who thought [they] were putting water on my fire, you’re really adding gas to it. And now I’m really burning so bright right now. I just felt like people were, like, ‘oh, she’s hit her peak and she’s done.

It was all hype.’ I see the comments. People don’t think I see it, but I see it. I’m very aware of tennis Twitter. I know y’all’s usernames, so I know who’s talking trash,” Gauff said. Gauff won three titles this summer and went 18-1 on hard courts.
