15 years old Gauff beat Venus in Australian Open first round

Fifteen – year – old American Coco Gauff beat Venus Williams at the Australian Open on Monday — the second time the teenager has dumped the veteran out in a Grand Slam first round .

Gauff surged into the second round in Melbourne with a 7 – 6 (7 / 5 ), 6 – 3 victory over the 39-year – old and will play unseeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea next .

Gauff , ranked 67 in the world and a fast – rising star in tennis , similarly defeated the seven -time Grand Slam winner in the first round last year at Wimbledon.

“That was really difficult , she played really well , ” said the precocious teenager.

“ I was really nervous for today ’ s match .

“ I was a bit shocked — I’ m sure everyone was shocked — when they saw the draw come out but I’ m glad I was able to get through it , ” Gauff added , referring to the repeat of their Wimbledon match .

Williams , formerly number one but now ranked 55 th , conceded the first – set tie break when she hit a routine backhand overhead into the net .

Gauff , remarkably unfazed by playing someone more than twice her age , held her nerve in the second set to claim Williams ’ scalp once more .

Victory over Williams at Wimbledon and her run to the fourth round there — where she lost to eventual champion Simona Halep — propelled Gauff into the sporting limelight .

She went on to win her first WTA title in October in Linz , Austria .
