Coco Gauff steamrolls into third round at Wimbledon

Coco Gauff

Second-seeded Coco Gauff cruised past Romanian Anca Todoni 6-2, 6-1 in the second round of Wimbledon on Wednesday in London.

Gauff converted five of nine break point opportunities and won 85 percent of her first serves in rolling on to the third round in 66 minutes. Todoni was beset by 23 unforced errors.

“I’m happy with how I played. I do think I could have played cleaner at some moments, but overall, I’m happy to get through to the third round,” Gauff said. “This is the court where I first started here at Wimbledon, so Court 1 is always a special place for me to play on.”

Gauff advances to the third round, where she’ll play Britain’s Sonay Kartal, a three-set winner over Clara Burel of France.

Gauff will be joined in the third round by fellow American Emma Navarro, who ousted Naomi Osaka in second-round action, 6-4, 6-1. The No. 19 seed won 27 points on her first serve compared to 19 for Osaka. Navarro hit 16 winners against just five unforced errors.

Unseeded Brit and former U.S. Open winner Emma Raducanu defeated Elise Mertens of Belgium 6-1, 6-2 in second-round action.

“I think I’m playing really good tennis,” she said. “I knew all the hard yards I was putting in would lead to something. I’m so happy to be able to reap some of the rewards at Wimbledon.”

Other seeded winners included No. 20 Beatriz Haddad Maia of Brazil, No. 21 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine and No. 31 Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic.

No. 26 Linda Noskova of the Czech Republic lost in straight sets to Canadian Bianca Andreescu.

American Sloane Stephens lost in straight sets to Russian Diana Shnaider.
