A DAY WITH TENNIS STAR COCO GAUFF IN HER HOMETOWN
Coco Gauff, the 17-year-old tennis phenom, has taken the sport by storm since her breakout at Wimbledon in 2019. From defeating Venus Williams in the first round of the tournament to making it to the fourth round, Gauff quickly became a household name. Today, Vogue gets an exclusive look at 24 hours with the young athlete in her hometown of Delray Beach, Florida.
WAKING UP IN COCO’S HOMETOWN
Our day with Gauff begins bright and early in her cozy bedroom adorned with pictures of her family and accomplishment medals. As we sip coffee, she speaks about how much she loves her hometown: “I was born and raised in Delray Beach. I love the weather, the beaches, and the people here. It feels like home.”
GYM TIME WITH COCO
Next, it’s time for Gauff’s morning workout routine. We follow her to the gym, where she works with weights and resistance bands to strengthen her core, legs, and arms. She also hits the treadmill for some cardio, which she says is essential for tennis players. “I love working out in the morning; it sets the tone for my day,” she explains.
GOING FOR A SPIN
After a quick breakfast, Gauff takes us on a tour of her hometown. Knowing that she loves vintage cars, she shows us her father’s classic Mustang and takes us for a spin. Watching her effortlessly navigate through the streets, it’s easy to see why she’s such a formidable competitor on the tennis court.
GETTING A MAKEOVER WITH COCO
Later, we head to one of Gauff’s favorite stores, where she tries on different outfits. Known for her style on and off the court, Gauff looks effortlessly chic in a white tee, denim shorts, and sneakers. She also experiments with a bold statement shoe. “I love fashion; it’s a way to express myself,” she admits.
AFTERNOON TENNIS WITH COCO
No day with Coco Gauff is complete without a visit to the tennis court. Her skills are on full display as she takes on a hitting partner, demonstrating precision and power on each shot. It’s clear why many consider her the future of tennis. “I love being on the court. It’s the one place where I feel like I can just be myself,” she shares.
DINNER TIME WITH COCO
As the day comes to an end, Gauff takes us to one of her favorite seafood restaurants. We dine on lobster rolls and catch up on her tennis career and life off the court. Despite the pressures of being a professional athlete, Gauff remains grounded. “My family and friends keep me grounded, and I try to stay true to who I am. That’s my secret,” she says.
ALL IN A DAY’S WORK
From morning workouts to afternoon tennis to a night out, it’s clear that Coco Gauff knows how to balance her sports commitments with her personal life. Her hometown Delray Beach holds a special place in her heart, and she wears her devotion to the city with pride. As we say our goodbyes to the rising star, it’s clear that she has a bright future ahead of her.
I went to see her play the final of the French which was weird cause I was cheering for Iga and then I have to cheer for the American of course! Anyways, half the French were cheering for Coco and this little toddler was even yelling "Allez Coco" which was sooo cute. The support in Europe is definitely there…
She's already accomplished so much…A young legend in the making! She has a beautiful family as well. Kudos to her parents.
Proud of you!
…there are too many at the top that Coco just can't beat, she's been on professional tour for 3 years and just lacks that relentless aggression to win, so she's learned to lose and then cry after all her matches to gain pity on television. 😂
She’s sweet and all but let’s be honest, she’s vastly overrated. Like probably the most overrated tennis player in the last decade.
All the white suburban housewives coming over here to virtue signal….pathetic.
She's got the zest
She is a Star 🌟 she will be around winning 🥇 lots of championship. Enjoy every moments and don’t compare your self to anyone. You are appreciated COCO💜✨
