She contined; ‘It has always been a dream of mine to represent the USA at the Olympics, and I hope there will be many more chances for me to make this come true in the future.’

Ms Gauff was predicted to be one-to-watch at the Games after her appearance at Wimbledon two years ago where she defeated Venus Williams on her way to the fourth round of the women’s singles.
