Coco Gauff, ranked No. 2, defeated by Emma Navarro in straight sets at Wimbledon

Emma Navarro Upsets Coco Gauff in Wimbledon Fourth Round

The No. 2 women’s seed, Coco Gauff, suffered a stunning defeat in the fourth round of Wimbledon on Sunday, falling to No. 19 seed Emma Navarro in straight sets. Navarro dominated the match, leaving Gauff frustrated and flustered as she sought answers from her coach during the game. Despite Gauff’s recent successes, including a victory at last year’s U.S. Open and a semifinal appearance at this year’s French Open, she was unable to secure a spot in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, the only Grand Slam event she has yet to reach the final eight in.

Navarro, playing in her second Wimbledon tournament, displayed composure and confidence throughout the match, securing her first win over a top-five opponent. The 23-year-old will now face No. 7 seed Jasmine Paolini in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. Gauff’s loss comes on the heels of No. 1 seed Iga Świątek’s third-round upset, leaving only Elena Rybakina as the remaining top-five seed in the tournament. Fans will be eagerly watching to see if Navarro can continue her impressive run at Wimbledon and if Rybakina can uphold the top seed honor.
