Gauff stunned Wimbledon to beat Williams

Venus Williams has sensationally crashed out of Wimbledon to 15-year-old American Cori Gauff.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion made 25 unforced errors in the seismic shock.

Gauff, the youngest player to ever play in the singles at Wimbledon either male or female in the open era, stunned SW19 by beating the seven-time Grand Slam champion in straight sets.

She won 6-4, 6-4 in a seismic shock which will reverberate around the world of tennis.

Gauff kept her nerve after spurning match points at 40-15 and 40-30 in the final game, plus another on deuce, before wrapping up the historic victory.

She served superbly and was broken only once in making just eight unforced errors – 17 fewer than her opponent who is 24 years her senior

It marks an eighth successive Grand Slam in which Venus has crashed out at the third round earlier.
After the game, an emotional Gauff said: “I don’t really know how to feel. This is the first time I’ve ever cried after winning.

Venus reacts after being beaten

“I’ve never played on a court so big. After every point I was just telling myself to stay calm.

“I never thought this would happen. I’m literally living my dream.”
