Coco Gauff

Fifteen-year-old Coco Gauff knocks out Venus Williams

The youngest player in the women's main draw at just 15, Gauff advanced to the second round with a 7-6(5), 6-3 victory at Melbourne Park on the opening day of the first major of the year.

The 2020 tournament is Gauff's first time in the main draw in Melbourne.

Gauff also upset Venus Williams in the opening round at Wimbledon last year.

Earlier in the day, Venus' sister Serena Williams completed a more comfortable 6-0, 6-3 win over Anastasia Potapova.
