Coco Gauff on a Mission to Inspire!

Mike Oberski

Have you ever wondered what it was like to watch the Roman Empire sport of gladiator fighting back in 105 B.C. to A.D. 404? Well, you need not look much further than today’s sport of tennis, especially at the U.S. Open in New York this year. And if you think our younger generation is doomed, there is still hope. Coco Gauff, at age 19, won one of the most prestigious Grand Slam events in the world and offered her prayers to God in front of millions of viewers. What I found most inspirational is that she said, “I don’t pray for results. I just ask that I get the strength to give it my all. Whatever happens happens. I’m so blessed in this life.” Gauff is the youngest American woman to win the U.S. Open since Serena Williams in 1999.
