Gauff to put Washington woe behind her in doubles
Cori 'Coco' Gauff will put her straight sets defeat at the Citi Open in Washington behind her and focus on the doubles.
The 15-year-old had continued her impressive summer form by qualifying for only her third career main draw but she was comfortably second best against Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first round.
"Every loss, there's something I learn from that, so I learned something about myself," said the teenager after her 6-4 6-2 defeat.
Gauff will now turn her attention to the women's doubles in Washington this week as she teams up with 17-year-old Catherine McNally.
"I'm really happy for the support that I've gotten here," added Gauff.
"It was a sad way to finish the singles run, but I'm excited to play doubles."
