“Coco” Gauff is ranked the 344th player in the world.
Gauff, who was born in Atlanta but now calls Delray Beach, Fla., home, advanced to play 18-year-old Juvan Kaja of Russia Thursday after defeating 26-year-old Ankita Raina, of India, 6-4, 6-4 Tuesday in Paris.
Gauff’s run ended with 6-3, 6-3 loss to Kaja. She was among 96 women vying for 12 spots in the women’s singles main draw, which begins next week.
Martina Hingis, who at 12 won the French Open Juniors title, is the youngest qualifier to win a Gran Slam match when she advanced to the second round of the 1995 Australian Open at the age of 15.
