Exclamation Linz MM 280 QF: [LL] GAUFF Shocks [1] BERTENS 76 64 To Boost Serena YEC Hopes

YEC hopeful BERTENS, losing in straight sets to a LL

BENCIC does not appear in the Moscow QD, which means that Serena will qualify for Shenzhen YEC unless BERTENS reaches the Moscow final

Well done Coco Certainly the better player out there today.

Kiki Screwed up a lot of points and it cost her dearly. Tho she seemed to work hard and tried to be aggressive. That's something to take from this at least.

I would not be exaggerating by saying Gauff schooled a seasoned pro with her all-round game and used dropshot very well. Bertens was sloppy and clueless for most part and could not even generate more than 2 break points, none of which were converted.

Bertens' manager (or whoever is in charge) should the get sack for not making her tank in 1st round because she just played 3 matches for nothing. Could have been worse if she lost in the final but still questionable decision making after Belinda crashed out early.

Coco with a top 10 win, congrats! What a way to make use of an LL spot! She played really well, while Bertens was awful.

Gauff has such a promising future... onwards!

I think that should lay any questions about whether Gauff is actually any good to rest.

Her control of the ball and over her game is just ridiculous. And her anticipation! Bertens was tired but even in this state she was able to beat Van Uytvanck yesterday, she had no idea at all how to hit through Gauff by the end.

Bertens desperately travelling around the world in an attempt to secure her WTA Finals spot only to flop to a 15 years old is incredibly tragic.

owned for the entire match by a 15yold

though I really don't like Coco's game hype now is totally justified, I'm scared to think how good she'll be in the next 4-5 years.

Wonderful result!
It was funny at the end when Coco tried to throw ball far into the stands but instead threw it by accident straight hard looking like it hit someone in head.

Hopefully Gauff wins the whole tournament.

Bertens looked weaponless and washed up. Her wonky groundstrokes are really horrible to watch when she's off. And then those errors despite hitting with so much spin...

Amazing! What a star!!!

Didn't see this coming judging by her prior matches, but she was great today, and fully deserved.

Crazy how fast she is.

Bertens couldn't break Gauff's serve.
