Coco Gauff and Caty McNally, Known as “McCoco,” Could Be Headed For Their First Grand Slam

Fitness

Tennis stars Coco Gauff and Caty McNally are at the top of their game individually, but as a team, they’re even more spectacular. The women’s doubles pair has advanced to the semifinals of the US Open after defeating the top-seeded team of Su-Wei Hsieh and Elise Mertens on Aug. 8, part of a contingent of teens who have taken the tournament by storm. “Age is just a number; it doesn’t mean anything,” McNally, 19, said following their win. “We’re showing that we’re fierce and we’re ready to be out here competing with everyone. I just think it’s awesome.”

The teen sensations have been playing doubles together for a few years now, racking up three Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) titles and repeatedly knocking on the door of a Grand Slam. With their incredible skills on the court — and a close-knit friendship helping to fuel their success — that first major could come any day now. “The main thing that makes us hard to beat is our chemistry with each other,” said 17-year-old Gauff. “If one of us is off, the other one is always there to cover.” One thing’s for sure: they’re fun to watch. Take a look back at some the team’s best moments so far — including their playful, signature shoulder bump — in the slides ahead.
