“Call me a champion” Goff, dubbed the “next Serena Williams,” wears a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Call me a champion” after winning the women’s singles title at the US Open on Tuesday.
After winning the women’s singles title at the US Open tennis tournament on Tuesday, Coco Goff (19, USA, World No. 6) wore a white T-shirt with the phrase emblazoned across her chest as she performed her championship ceremony in front of the crowd.
Goff has been wearing a t-shirt that reads “Call Me Coco” since 2019, when she competed at Wimbledon, marking her first appearance on a major stage. His name, Coco, was abbreviated on the shirt. Now that he’s standing atop the US Open, he’s asking to be called champion instead of Coco.

Lifted her first major trophy after coming from behind to defeat Arina Savalenka (Belarus) 2-1 in the women’s singles final at the US Open tennis tournament on Tuesday. 스포츠토토 Dubbed the “next Serena Williams,” Goff is the first teenage American to win a US Open women’s singles title in 24 years.
Goff lifted the trophy after coming from behind to defeat No. 25-ranked Arina Sabalenka of Belarus 2-1 (2-6, 6-3, 6-2) in the women’s singles final at the U.S. Open on Sunday in New York City. It was Goff’s first major title.
Previously, last year’s French Open runner-up finish was her best major result. Goff struggled in the first set, dropping her serve three times, but her defense came alive in the second set to turn the tide. In the third set, she raced to a 4-0 lead and sealed the match.
Goff is the 10th teenager to win the women’s singles title at the US Open. It has been 24 years since a teenage American won the tournament since Serena Williams in 1999.
In 2019, Goff captured the attention of the tennis world when she became the youngest player in history to qualify for Wimbledon at 15 years, 122 days old, and reached the round of 16. Since then, Goff has been labeled the next Serena Williams.
Has been holding her dad’s hand at the US Open in New York City since she was 8 years old to watch sisters Serena and Venus Williams compete.
After the final, Goff tweeted, “My dad has been bringing me to this tournament (US Open) since I was a little girl. I used to sit in the stands and watch Serena and Venus (Williams) play, and to win here is unbelievable,” she said after the final.
Goff has said many times that Serena is her role model. “When I was growing up, 토토 there weren’t a lot of black players in tennis, and she made it possible for people like me to dream of winning,”
Goff said, laughing about her name being engraved on the US Open trophy alongside her idol, “but it seems like there are a lot of Serena’s names on the trophy.” Serena, who retired last year after winning 23 major titles, won the US Open six times.
“It’s been a long road,” Goff said of winning a major before turning 20. “I’ve had people say, ‘Oh, you didn’t win a major at 17 like Serena did,’ but I’m glad I was able to handle the pressure and win,” he said, adding, “There’s going to be a lot more attention with this win, but I’m ready for it. I’m still hungry.”
Goff also thanked his family and fans, saying, “Thank you for believing in me. “When I won the Cincinnati Open two weeks ago, there were people who said this was my best.
They were throwing water on the fire in my mind, but they were actually pouring oil on it. I’m burning brightly now because of them.”
Who had hoped to make it two majors this year after winning the Australian Open in January, had to settle for booking the No. 1 spot in the world rankings, which were released on Wednesday.
Sabalenka, who has held the top spot since April last year, knocked Sibyontek (22-Poland) off the top spot. 스포츠토토링크 Szibiontek was eliminated in the round of 16 at the tournament.
