1. How far can the 15-year-old debutant go?
Coco Gauff is 15, and she’s in the third round at Wimbledon. On Monday, the American, ranked 313th in the world and playing in her first major, knocked Venus Williams out in straight sets, and then cruised through her second-round matchup on Wednesday, against 139th-ranked former Wimbledon semifinalist Magdalena Rybarikova. Gauff is the youngest player to win a match at a major since Anna Kournikova made the fourth round at the 1996 U.S. Open, and the youngest to win a match at Wimbledon since Jennifer Capriati reached the semifinals in 1991
