Coco Gauff Aims for Paris Olympics Success on Par with Grand Slams

Coco Gauff Paris Olympics

Coco Gauff, who missed out on the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 due to a positive COVID test, is setting her sights on the upcoming Paris Games with equal fervor as the Grand Slam tournaments. The 20-year-old American, eager to debut at the Games, sees the opportunity to vie for a medal at Roland Garros, where she’ll also contend for a second French Open title later this month.

Expressing her anticipation, Gauff remarked to journalists at the Italian Open, “For me, the Olympics are right up there with the Grand Slams. It’s a level playing field because it’s my first time participating. I’m aiming to perform well and strive for a medal. However, transitioning from grass to clay will be a new challenge.”

Maintaining a balanced perspective, Gauff emphasized, “I’m not putting excessive pressure on myself because I want to fully immerse in the experience. Hopefully, I’ll have multiple opportunities in my career. I’ll cherish it as a once-in-a-lifetime moment.”
