Coco Gauff will get a chance for an encore after her magical run to the fourth round at this year’s Wimbledon. The 15-year-old from Florida has received a wildcard entry for the US Open’s main draw.

It will be Gauff’s second grand slam tournament after she burst on to the scene in London. Ranked just 313th at the time, Gauff became the youngest player to come through the qualifying rounds at Wimbledon.
