Coco Gauff: Vogue Cover Girl and Grand Slam Champion

Coco Gauff, the top-ranked American tennis player, has graced the April cover of Vogue magazine, photographed by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. In an accompanying interview, Gauff opens up about her whirlwind journey since her maiden Grand Slam victory at the 2023 US Open.

Gauff describes the feeling of winning her first major as "addictive," a high she is determined to chase for the rest of her career. Despite her early exit from Wimbledon in 2023, Gauff has found a balance to her perfectionism with the help of her new coach, Brad Gilbert.

The 20-year-old is now ranked No. 3 in the world and has set her sights on winning the French Open, a tournament she came close to winning in 2022. Gauff also expressed her desire to win Wimbledon or the US Open again.

Gauff's mother, Candi, reveals that her daughter's perfectionism dates back to her childhood, when she was upset over getting one spelling test question wrong. However, Gauff is now learning to accept her good shots and give herself more compliments.

Gauff's success on the hard courts of the US Open has given her confidence for the 2024 season. She has already reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, a career-best result.
