  1. Why is this even a headline? Gauff is ranked outside top 50 (highest rank at 49th). And her best slam result is the 4th round. But Konta is a 3 time slam semi finalist, with highest rank at number 4. Don’t understand what’s the “rivalry” here? Not in the same league. Would it still be hyped as a rivalry, if Gauff were one of the usual east european teenage girls with similar results? Because there are many of those…

  4. I hope all this overhype does not weigh down gauff, i dont think she’ll be able to take down someone as good as konta on clay.

  7. Remember when everyone was about McHale, Bellis, and the so fourth…where are they now? They all were teenager breakout stars but they then they disappeared. All the hype that US built up about their American female players? Looking for someone to fill the Williams’ shoes?

    • The irony is they spent the last decades bashing the Williams sisters and diminishing their value and contributions to the sport. Now they the Williams sisters are getting older and knocking on the door of retirement, they’ve realized that US tennis is basically nothing without them. They are now struggling to figure out what comes next. That is why they keep overhyping these young breakout stars.

  10. I have never seen a 15-16 year old make headlines like this ever in tennis. The fact that she can defeat the best players in the world at that age!? She’s gonna be scary.
