Coco Gauff Falls To Emma Navarro At Wimbledon After Failing To Adapt Game Plan


Things were not going well for Coco Gauff against Emma Navarro on Centre Court. She repeatedly looked to her guest box for guidance from her coaches. One of her coaches, Brad Gilbert, stood up and gestured, and they exchanged words, but no effective solution emerged.

Gauff has yet to advance beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon, and she exited at that stage again on Sunday, losing to Navarro 6-4, 6-3 in an all-American matchup.

Her loss was part of a series of departures by top women from the Wimbledon bracket this year: No. 1 Iga Swiatek lost on Saturday, No. 3 Aryna Sabalenka withdrew with a shoulder injury before playing a match, and No. 6 Marketa Vondrousova, last year’s champion, was defeated in the first round.

Only two of the top 10 seeded women remain: 2022 champion Elena Rybakina, seeded No. 4, and recent French Open runner-up Jasmine Paolini, seeded No. 7, who will face Navarro next. Rybakina plays her fourth-round match on Monday, while Paolini advanced on Sunday when Madison Keys retired due to injury.

The 19th-seeded Navarro, who prepares for matches by writing notes in her phone, reached a major quarterfinal for the first time. She displayed her capabilities in the second round by defeating four-time major champion Naomi Osaka.

On Sunday, Navarro noticed the interactions between Gauff and Gilbert and Gauff’s growing frustration with her performance.

In addition to her trophy from New York last September, the 20-year-old from Florida has been the runner-up at the French Open and reached the semifinals at the Australian Open.

Gauff’s first significant breakthrough came at the All England Club at age 15, when she became the youngest qualifier in tournament history and defeated Venus Williams in the first round, eventually reaching the fourth round. However, she has not surpassed that result.

She exited in the fourth round again in 2021, lost in the third round in 2022, and was eliminated in the first round last year.

On Sunday, Gauff made numerous errors, finishing with more than twice as many unforced errors (25) as winners (12). Her most significant issue was her forehand, known to be a weakness by her opponents.

Navarro consistently targeted Gauff’s forehand, and it proved effective.

Gauff made 16 unforced errors and another 16 forced errors with her forehand, accounting for 32 of the 61 total points won by Navarro.
