Wimbledon 2019: High hopes for Coco Gauff after astonishing Wimbledon run

Cori Gauff enjoyed a life-changing first week at Wimbledon

Until this year, world number 66 Humbert had never played a grass court match either as a junior or professional. But as always, the real money for Gauff won't come from her prize winnings or the sport's performance bonuses (as lucrative as they may be), but from product endorsements.

In qualifying at Roehampton in June, she became the youngest player in the Open era to qualify for the main draw, but it was her straight-set victory over five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams - 24 years her senior - that announced her arrival.

"I am really happy I can play in the quarter-finals again, it's one of my favourite tournaments", Halep said.

"Ms Tina Knowles, Beyonce's mum, posted me on Instagram and I was screaming!" she said in her post-match press conference.

Barty is coming off a title at the French Open last month, her first Grand Slam singles title.

It was a chastening experience for 23-year-old Berrettini, seeded 17th, but at least it was one that was over in brutally fast fashion.

However, the match slipped from her grasp midway in the opener as Halep at one stage claimed six of seven games to build a set and break advantage.

Gauff said she was "really surprised" at the support she received whilst in the United Kingdom, adding: "You don't really expect this kind of support when you're in another country, not your home country".

Will Trump's visit to North Korea lead to a nuclear deal?
What did North Korea say? Pyongyang's delegation to the United Nations said on Wednesday that the USA was "obsessed on sanctions". Nonetheless those talks ended with no deal, as they failed to agree on the toddle at which sanctions must peaceful be eased.

He was proved correct by Hawk-Eye but instead of Gauff winning the point - Halep realistically had no play - Keothavong ruled the point to be replayed because it was an early call. "So every match, I'm hoping to improve tons".

But she was even more proud of the way she battled in the third round, when she saved two match points and came from a set and 5-2 down to beat Polona Hercog of Slovenia.

The American was beginning to look exhausted, understandable given this was her seventh match in a fortnight, and she quickly went down a break in the second set.

Gauff has said some of her teachers didn't know she played tennis until WimbledonWhere does she go from here?

In a press conference, Rafael Nadal was asked to give the 15-year-old Cori Gauff who has reached the Wimbledon fourth round.

Gauff was able to save two match points when serving at 5-2, but Halep clinched the victory when Gauff sent a forehand wide in the next game.

From 4-3 in the first, Halep won four consecutive games and surged to 2-0 in the second.

Monday's other ties see 2017 semi-finalist Sam Querrey face last-16 debutant and U.S. compatriot Tennys Sandgren. "If she keeps doing what she did here, she's going to get a lot of confidence and she can win big tournaments soon". Instead of hanging out at a mall or going to see a movie with friends or working as a camp counselor Monday, there she was at Wimbledon at 1 p.m., standing in the tunnel that leads to the court with her father, Corey.
