    Fifteen year old phenom at The Wimbledon

    A young American phenom stole the show of the tennis world at Wimbledon . A 15 year old wild card made it to the round of 16 where she lost to a former world number one. She has game and poise not just power, her name is Coco Gauff and even if you are not a tennis fan but watch ESPN once in awhile you will here it again. If the obsessive sports media doesn't ruin her career before it starts that is.

    Flash forward to the US Open today and Coco has just beaten another teen but she also appeared to possibly be crying when the $#@! hit the fan. So gee mom and dad maybe multiple coaches, endorsements ( the star package after all of 1 big league torney) and the pressure that comes with even more attention could of waited a year or two.
    I routed for her and she can play and is a good sportswoman from what I can see, but they have all the time in the world to bring her along and they are in a rush. Shades of Michelle Wie?

    I know you are not tennis fans but this Gauff kid really does have it all if her folks and the hype machine don't ruin her.

    Cmon now, I am a fan of women in short skirts running around and grunting while hitting a ball with a racket.
