Great to see such a result. However:
On their first set point, Gauff fired her second straight return right at Gaurachi's body, forcing an error to seal it.
Gaurachi and Christian are doubles specialists, boasting rankings of No. 65 and No. 73 respectively. Gaurachi was seeking her second WTA doubles title, and Christian her first.
It's spelt GUA
RACHI. Please get it right.
Gauff was the only player in the trophy ceremony not awarded champagne since the drinking age in France is 16, so she was given grape juice instead.
What has the drinking age in France got to do with Luxembourg? Does the author not realise that they are two different countries?
"I hope this is just the second of many WTA title," McNally said. Luxembourg marked the young American duo's fifth-ever tournament together, and fourth at the WTA level.
Together for the first time, they won the junior US Open in 2018, which earned them a wild card into the 2019 US Open, where they reached the round of 16. This week was their second WTA final, after thrilling local crowds to win the Citi Open in Washington, D.C.
While all the hype has been about Gauff in these last couple of weeks, McNally has cemented her position as possibly the best young doubles player in the world (although she hasn't yet come up against Maja Chwalinska - and that would be a sight to see!). You only have to look at her amazing record over the last three years to appreciate that her talents are not restricted to singles.
