“I’m not forced to [practice], but I know I have to do [it] if I’m gonna get better,” she said. “It’s like my job, but it’s also leisure, I guess.”

Gauff made her debut at Wimbledon last month, where she experienced an impressive winning streak‚ even beating Venus Williams — until she was defeated by Romania’s Simona Halep.
