Coco Gauff blames herself despite quarrelling with her coach Brad Gilbert and team

Coco Gauff revealed a lack of communication with her teammates, especially Jean-Cristophe Faurel and coach Brad Gilbert, during the press conference that followed. Nevertheless, she accepted full responsibility for her failure in London.

Gauff At Wimbledon

On Sunday, July 7, Coco Gauff was eliminated from the women’s singles draw of the 2024 Wimbledon Championships after suffering a crushing defeat against Emma Navarro in the fourth round. In one hour and sixteen minutes, Navarro defeated Gauff on Center Court in straight sets.

During the press conference, the second seed disclosed a lack of coordination with her teammates, particularly Jean-Cristophe Faurel and coach Brad Gilbert.

She expressed her thoughts about it and said: “It has happened before. I wouldn’t say it has happened before with maybe the combination of JC and Brad. It’s happened before in the past where I felt like I needed more direction, they usually give me something.”

Still, she took full responsibility for the unfavourable outcome in London for herself. She talked about it and said: “I felt as today, I don’t think we were all in sync, but it’s no one’s blame except myself. I’m the player out there, I have to make decisions about myself on the court.”

Moreover, in the same media interview, Gauff expressed her belief that she had to use different tactics because the first plan of action she and her team came up with for Navarro didn’t work.

She concluded her discussion and said: “We had a game plan going in and I felt that it wasn’t working so. I don’t always ask for advice from the box, but today was one of those rare moments where I felt like I didn’t have solutions. I don’t want to say I didn’t have any because I think I’m a capable player of coming up with some.”
