Former US Open champion, Coco Gauff participated in an amazing initiative. Gauff’s Grand Slam achievement last year was an exceptional thing in the American tennis fraternity since Gauff was the youngest US citizen to bag this title after Serena Williams. However, Coco Gauff’s US Open victory wasn’t limited to her success, rather this tennis prodigy came forward to inspire young tennis stars with improved tennis facilities across the country. In fact, the recently established US Open Legacy Initiative came forward joining hands with Gauff in this matter.

This US Open Legacy initiative was announced right after the American WTA star won her US Open trophy last year. According to this proposal, the US Open Legacy Initiative will restore tennis courts at parks, other public facilities, and schools across the United States honoring the champion, Coco Gauff. Now, Gauff was also spotted being involved in this process of making tennis accessible to everyone.
