Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

Coco was 4-2 in the 3rd set but I think match is not finished at all, as Mariajo is a great fighter and will put all the pressure on Coco. When playing a spaniard you can never think it's done, we're brave!!
In fact Coco might feel anxious if she doesn't win a match she was close to win yesterday, it's first Grand Slam and Mariajo is more experienced.
So definitively Coco should be scared out there today

Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

Ha, you guys should root for Mariajo in her own thread, not here. I like her, too, though. But Coco will take her down!

Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

Aww, poor Coco. But it's tough to face these veterans out there. Still a good experience for Coco anyway, for sure.

Awww craps.
I kinda expected it. Should have closed it out yesterday.
Too bad but a great experience, nonetheless.

Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

I'm sorry for Coco, but as I said it wasn't going to be easy as she had to close the match after the break and Mariajo was more experienced. Probably she was too nervous.
Anyway I'm sure she'll learn from this experience and she will play a lot of Grand Slams in her career. Good luck!

Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

I hope she's not feeling too bad about this loss, or at least, I hope she won't be feeling bad after a couple of days. Losses like this are such a normal step along the way to a tennis career, even if it's not a fun step. There's only way to gain confidence in successfully closing out matches against the pros, and that's to play more of them. It will happen! Then, knowing how to close out a match that is carried over from the day before is another whole learning process that takes experience and time. Be patient with yourself, Coco; you'll get there!

Exclamation Re: Coco Vandeweghe - Getting to know?

STARS & STRIPES GRAND SLAMMED
FLAG RIPPED OFF KIKI VANDEWEGHE AT OPEN

By ANDY SOLTIS


DIS-SERVICE: Coco Vandeweghe yesterday holds up the American flag patch a U.S. Open referee removed from her uniform at a match.

August 24, 2007 -- The tennis-prodigy niece of former Knick star Kiki Vandeweghe was stunned when a referee told her to remove her American flag patch just before her debut at the U.S. Open.

Coco Vandeweghe, 15, one of the most promising young American women players, was unnerved by the bizarre incident before her first-round qualifying match at the U.S. Tennis Center in Queens on Wednesday.

She was warming up for her match against Spain's Maria José Martinez Sanchez when an assistant referee pulled off Coco's Stars and Stripes patch, a U.S. Tennis Association official said yesterday.

"They profusely apologized for what happened later," said Coco's mother, Tauna.
Coco said she wears the patch regularly as a sign of patriotism. "USA all the way," she said.
"She's probably the biggest patriot in the world," said her mother.

Coco said she never had a problem before. When the referee told her something was wrong on her back, she thought she was complaining about "a bug" - only to discover it was the flag patch.

The USTA said the unidentified ref blew it.
She "misinterpreted our rule concerning commercial identification," said USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier.
"It was a mistake, and it will not happen again."

The USTA has a policy restricting the size and location of logos that players can wear during competitions like the U.S. Open, but it doesn't extend to the American flag.
Tauna Vandeweghe, a former swimming star on two U.S. Olympic teams, said the incident interrupted her daughter's warm-up, when she was already nervous.
"It threw us for a loop," she said.
Fans in the stands "all were very upset about it," she said.
At least one fan booed during the brief incident at the Grand Slam event.

Coco played the rain-delayed match, which she lost 2-6, 6-4, 5-7 after it resumed yesterday.
Her uncle Kiki played for the Knicks, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers, and was most recently general manager of the Nuggets.
Her grandfather Ernie Vandeweghe also played for the Knicks. Her grandmother Colleen Hutchins was Miss America in 1952.
Coco, who lives in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., has been called a possible successor to Venus and Serena Williams and even described as "the future of U.S. women's tennis."
Her 100-plus-mph serve helped her earn a wild card to compete for a qualifying spot in the U.S. Open, which begins Monday.
