MASON – Coco Gauff beat Karolina Muchova 6-3 6-4 to win the biggest title of her young career at the Cincinnati Open on Sunday and extend her outstanding form on North American hard courts ahead of the US Open.
The American teenager, seeded seventh, broke the Czech three times in the first set and confidently served the opening shot at love in her first WTA 1000 finals appearance. Muchova was too inconsistent on a hot day in Ohio, committing 35 unforced errors in the match and missing a backhand down the line to give Gauff the break and a 3-2 lead in the second set.
Gauff had little trouble getting over the goal line and failed to convert three match point opportunities as he served for 5-2 thanks to some tentative groundstrokes. But she didn’t falter on her next chance when Muchova’s return landed wide, leaving Gauff jumping up and down in jubilation.
