I dont know what the problem is with calling Coco's career fledgling. That's exactly what it is ... o_O

Yup... we have a similar expression where we use the same verb: it means “ on the rise”

Perfect description imo
"Never argue with an idiot - they take you down to their level and then beat you on experience"

What's the thing about Sharapova?
Coco distanced herself from Aiava.
One is now inside the top 100 and the other outside.
And you are obsessed with Maria! :P

Instead of just celebrating Gauff, you see fit to be petty per usual. :wink:

Or maybe, you like to celebrate negative things about Maria,
as Mytiwtiw does about Venus? :wink: On which you both
are annoying! :mrgreen: :P

GAUFF AND MCNALLY TO PLAY LUXEMBOURG AS SHARAPOVA AND KERBER WITHDRAW

The American teenagers moved into the main draw of the WTA International event when the pair of former Grand Slam champions pulled out due to injury.

Maria Sharapova will not play the WTA event in Luxembourg next week, having already withdrawn from this week's event at Linz with an ongoing shoulder injury.

That wraps up a stop-and-start season for the Russian, who had a small procedure on her shoulder following the Australian Open and re-injured it during the North American hard-court season. The former world No. 1 has not played since the US Open.

Three-time major champion Angelique Kerber has also withdrawn from Luxembourg with a leg injury, but could still qualify for a spot at the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, which consists of a 12-player field ranked below the field for the WTA Finals.

As a result of Sharapova and Kerber pulling out, American teenagers Cori "Coco" Gauff and Caty McNally moved into the main draw. Each made an impact at the US Open, with the 15-year-old Gauff facing Naomi Osaka in the third round and 17-year-old McNally winning the opening set of her second-round encounter against Serena Williams. The pair also reached the third round of the doubles, after capturing the Citi Open title in Washington, D.C. a month earlier.

"Right now, it's all about matches for me, and getting as more matches under my belt, as much as possible. I feel fresh and eager," she told press at Linz.

Go McNally. !!!!!!!
You didn't play your best in the last Doubles' match. You were not as amazing at the net as usual. But that happens.
Go knock out a couple of ladies in that main draw. your game is big enough to cause some damages.
Go Cathy Go !!!!!!!! A couple of wins .... and you will land in the top-100.
Almost there!
