The school girl Gauff gives her lawn to Venus of Wimbledon

LONDON: Cori Gauff On Monday, the 15-year-old American caused one of the biggest upheavals in the school. Wimbledon dispatching history Venus Williams 6-4, 6-4 in the first round on Monday.

Aged 39, Williams is considered Wimbledon royalty as she has been part of the All England Club Family for more than two decades, having won the singles title five times, including two before Gauff was born.

But Gauff, the youngest player to qualify for the main draw in the professional era, was in no mood to play a maid of honor as she scoffed at the difference of 24 years and 269 qualifying places that separate her from Williams

Playing an intrepid brand of tennis who denied his young age, harassed Williams to subdue her.

A break in the fifth game of the first set, which included a delicious lobe on the statuesque Williams, was enough to win his first set.

The nerveless screen continued in the second set and she sealed the victory at her fourth match point when Williams scored a forehand.
