‘My Dad Running to Take a Picture’
American teenage sensation Coco Gauff finally found her feet in 2022; as she won the doubles title in Qatar Open. Before this, the American was having a terrible year so far. After losing in the first round at the Australian Open, Coco also lost in the first round at the Dubai Open. So, she will take this win in Qatar gladly.
Meanwhile, after the win, Coco posted a funny video on social media of her father, Corey Gauff. It seemed like Corey was excited after her daughter’s win.

Coco had a great Qatar Open
This was the first time Gauff played in the Qatar Open. In the singles tournament, she reached the quarter-final. Unfortunately, the American lost to Maria Sakkari in straight sets. However, that loss didn’t demoralize Coco, as she won the doubles tournament with Jessica Pegula. Notably, Coco lost to Pegula in the opening round at the Dubai Open in the singles event.
In the finals, the American pair beat the no.3 seed; the pair of Elise Mertens and Veronika Kudermetova, by 3-6,7-5,10-5.
At the age of 17, this doubles win will motivate Coco for the upcoming tournaments. Although Coco didn’t have a great Australian open, she can perform well in future Grand Slam events. Right now, her focus should be on the Indian Wells, which will start next month.
