From the BBC coverage: a future champion. amazing !!
"People have been talking about Coco for years," fellow American and two-time US Open champion Tracy Austin told BBC's Today at Wimbledon.
"They have now started to recognise her internationally. Obviously she's a tremendous athlete, but to walk on court to face Venus, a player who she idolises, there were plenty of opportunities for her to get tight and nervous.
"She has been raised for greatness and this is beginning."
Three-time Wimbledon men's champion John McEnroe added: "Gauff's not only physically mature, but also mentally.
"I look at the way she plays. If she's not number one in world by 20 I will be absolutely shocked."
