Coco Gauff is now a World #1 in women's doubles

Shout out to Coco Gauff on reaching the top of the women’s doubles rankings after winning the Canadian Open with partner Jessica Pegula.

The pair beat Nicole Melichar-Martinez and Ellen Perez 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 10-5 in yesterday’s final and the rise to #1 makes Gauff the second-youngest number one in women’s doubles history, after Martina Hingis.

“Being No. 1 is pretty cool […] I have no words. I didn’t really know it was coming this week and what I had to do, but (Pegula) told me yesterday. It didn’t make me more nervous though. I think if it was singles, I would have been more nervous.”
