Coco Gauff defeats University of Miami national champion at Delray Beach Open
In what was perhaps the most anticipated exhibition match in the history of the Delray Beach Open, Coco Gauff defeated Estela Perez-Somarriba 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday night in her homecoming debut. There was plenty of support for her Saturday night on the main court at the Delray Beach Tennis Center -- the same facility where she grew up practicing. “The University of Miami, they’ve been my family for the last four years and if I’m here today, it’s because of them. Although there was plenty of fanfare for both players during the match, Gauff had, by far, the bigger following. After the match, Gauff was far from elusive, taking the time to sign autographs, pose for selfies and toss autographed tennis balls into the crowd of fans.
