American teenager Coco Gauff reached her first Grand Slam singles final with victory over Martina Trevisan in the French Open last four at Roland Garros on Thursday.
Gauff became the youngest Grand Slam finalist since a 17-year-old Maria Sharapova stormed to the Wimbledon title in 2004.
She won 6-3 6-1 against unseeded Italian Martina Trevisan on the Paris clay in her maiden major semi-final.
Gauff, seeded 18th, was the favourite against Trevisan and has become the youngest finalist at Roland Garros since Kim Clijsters in 2001.
“I think I’m in a bit of shock right now and I didn’t know how to react at the end of the match,” Gauff said.
“I have no words to describe how I feel.”
“I’ve not been nervous all tournament, which is surprising,” said Gauff, who has also reached the doubles semi-finals alongside fellow American Jessica Pegula.
“In the morning I go for a walk and that clears my head and after that I feel great.”
Following this victory, Coco Gauff will face world No. 1 Iga Swiatek for her first major title on Saturday.
