The childhood idol and former world No. 1 junior, having won one junior Grand Slam singles title and another in doubles, was eliminated Monday morning by former No. 1-ranked player and seventh-seeded Simona Halep.

Through it all Cori lit up Wimbledon and transcended tennis in a sparkling debut on the world stage. With her mother and father present, Gauff recived a rousing ovation from the Wimledon crowd as she walked off the court in defeat.
