American teenager Coco Gauff produced a performance for the ages to knock out defending Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka on Friday.⁣

The 15-year-old has already made headlines around the world but none of her achievements so far could compare to this as she took apart one of the best players in the world on Rod Laver Arena 6-3 6-4 success in 67 minutes.⁣

"I was just telling myself one point at a time and keep fighting because you never know what happens on this court. “I don’t even know,” she replied when asked how she had pulled off that performance. “From the crowd, I guess. Honestly, what is my life, like, oh my gosh, two years ago I lost in the first round in juniors and now I’m here — it’s crazy.”

“Honestly, I was just telling myself, ‘One point at a time and keep fighting because you never know what happens on this court.’
“I love it down here, oh my gosh, like, honestly, thank you guys from the bottom of my heart, like, oh my gosh, I’m on the Rod Laver Arena — I can’t believe this.”

She was rock solid and took advantage of an error-strewn display from Osaka who became the third former Australian Open winner to bow out after Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki, who won the title in 2017 and 2018, lost their respective matches at Melbourne Park earlier in the day.⁣
