Cori Gauff: I Don'T Need To Swing For The Fences, But I Need To Be More Offensive

I don’t need to hit the fences, but I need to be more offensive.


Cori Gauff reveals that she probably she needs to improve her tactical game and also become a more offensive player. Gauff, 18, is a Grand Slam finalist and is ranked No. 4 in the world. Now that Gauff has made some notable achievements, the next goal for her is to win a Grand Slam and become world number 1.

«I think about how I approach the game tactically. I think mentally I’m approaching it in a pretty good way.» Gauff said, as quoted in sportskeeda. Furthermore, Gauff said she doesn’t consider herself a defensive player, but noted that she can probably be a little more offensive.

«I wouldn’t say I’m completely a defensive player. I can take big shots, but I think it’s something I need to do more often. That’s what I’m working on and I do it at the right times as well.» It’s not that I need to go out there and be a big hitter, because I feel like I have the physicality to play a more complete game.

So I think I don’t need to swing to the fences, but I also think I need to be more offensive,» Gauff explained.

Gauff was visibly disappointed after her Australian Open exit

In his first tournament of the year, Gauff made it all the way to the ASB Classic in Auckland.

After winning all five of his matches in Auckland in straight sets, Gauff also won his first three matches at the Australian Open in straight sets. So, Gauff was given a cold shower when she suffered an upset 7-5, 6-3 loss to Jelena Ostapenko in the round of 16 at the Australian Open..

For Gauff, it was a devastating end to her Australian Open as she believed this was the tournament where she would make her Grand Slam breakthrough. At the end of May and beginning of June, Gauff will try to become Grand Slam champion at the French Openthe tournament where he reached his first Major final last year.
