Cori ‘Coco’ Gauff’s Historic Run At Wimbledon is Done :( WATCH

*Well, it was nice while it lasted, but it’s all over now. Teen tennis sensation Cori “Coco” Gauff‘s stunning streak at Wimbledon came to an end on Monday when she was eliminated by Romanian Simona Halep.

Her loss in the fourth-round match ended 6-3, 6-3, which means 15-year-old Gauff has been eliminated from a spot in the quarterfinals.

It could be said that Miss Gauff was way over her head going into the match on Monday, seeing as  Halep, who won last year’s French Open, was the world’s No. 7-ranked women’s singles player. Remember, going into the tournament, Gauff was only ranked at No. 139.

“I tried my best today but it wasn’t meant to be … thank you London,” Gauff posted to her Instagram stories less than an hour after losing, accompanied by a picture of her grinning and waving as she left the court.

As we reported earlier, Coco Gauff became a household name when she knocked out her childhood idol and five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round, and then saved two match points in the third round to reach the second week of a Grand Slam tournament in her debut.

She didn’t stop there. She also garnered wins against Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia and Polona Hercog of Slovenia.

Meanwhile, her parents Corey and Candi Gauff, have gained their own attention for their enthusiastic cheering and emotional reactions from the stands.

At only 15, Cori Gauff has already climbed a major mountain in the professional tennis world.  But she’s not the first. Other females younger than Gauff to reach Round of 16 in the modern era of Wimbledon are Jennifer Capriati, Steffi Graf and Andrea Jaeger.

To put in perspective Cori “Coco” Gauff’s impact on Wimbledon, check out what Deadspin had to say:

Gauff was by far the most compelling storyline in this dreary Wimbledon where the youth movement was largely wiped out by day 2. But until the American turns 16 next March, she can play only five more tournaments at the WTA level, due to rules—inspired by so many early flameouts—designed to preserve the well-being of young players. Her allowance will increase by two tournaments if she continues to plays well, and Gauff’s family will surely make its appeals to the tour, which might be hesitant to suppress the early career of a future star. It seems clear enough that Gauff is ready, or nearly ready, to compete at this level, week-in and week-out, against adult athletes. While some well-intentioned red tape might hinder that reality in the short term, a talent this brazenly obvious can’t be contained in the long term. There are so many more Wimbledons to come for Coco Gauff.
