Upcoming American Cori Gauff wins Linz to become the ninth-youngest WTA tournament winner in history.

The season of only 15-year-old Cori Gauff has reached another peak in Austrian Linz. The American defeated Yelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1: 6, 6-2 in the tournament finals and celebrated her first WTA tournament victory. So Gauff chose the youngest winner of the WTA Tour Tour since Czech Nicole Vaidisova 15 years ago.

Like Lucky Loserin to the title

It was interesting that the teenager actually failed to qualify with German Tamara Korpatsch. Gauff got a second chance as a lucky loser. And she has made the most of her success so far in her young career. On the world rankings, Gauff will make the big leap forward on Monday and will be among the top 100 for the first time.
