The 14-year-old American may have played her last junior tennis match. 14-year-old American Coco Gauff became the youngest Orange Bowl 18s champion since Nicole Vaidisova in 1995 on Sunday in Plantation, Florida, defeating China’s Qinwen Zheng, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

Top-seeded Gauff didn’t drop a set until the final when she rallied back from 4-2 down in the decider after a prolonged rain delay in Florida.

“I remembered saying this in my head: ‘All these people are here, and they are still rooting for you, and you’re down 4-2. Then you should start rooting for yourself, too,’ and I think that helped turn the match around,” Gauff said after the final.

The American went 31-5 in junior singles matches and won the Roland Garros Girls Singles title this year, becoming the youngest player to win that title since 1993.

Finland’s Otto Virtanen defeated American Zane Kahn in the Boys’ 18s singles final, 7-5, 6-4.
