Coco Gauff was practically in tears during the post-match interview. Despite the fact that she was pleased to have won the match and is now one step closer to capturing the US Open 2021 title with Caty McNally, she felt terrible for Luisa Stefani. She even stated that she despises winning in this manner.

Stefani twisted her ankle and fell on the court during the first set. It appeared to be a serious injury at first, and she subsequently revealed that she would be unable to play the match, giving Gauff and McNally the walkover.

Surprisingly, Gauff displayed tremendous sportsmanship and character on the court. Despite the fact that she was overjoyed at her triumph, she made every effort to ensure that her opponent was in good spirits.
