In a hard-fought match at the WTA Stuttgart clay-court tournament, world number three Coco Gauff battled past fellow American Sachia Vickery in three sets, winning 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. Despite a strong start where Gauff claimed the first three games, the encounter turned into a challenging struggle marked by numerous errors from both players. Gauff's 15 double faults contributed to Vickery's 19 break point opportunities, of which she converted seven, keeping the match fiercely contested.


Reflecting on her performance, Gauff acknowledged Vickery's resilience in retrieving balls and emphasized her own efforts to balance patience with aggression throughout the match. Despite facing deficits, Gauff managed to stay composed, ultimately securing a critical break in the seventh game of the deciding set. With this hard-fought victory, Gauff advances to the quarterfinals where she awaits the winner of the match between Zheng Qinwen and Marta Kostyuk.


Meanwhile, former US Open champion Emma Raducanu showcased her clay-court prowess by defeating three-time Grand Slam winner Angelique Kerber 6-2, 6-1 in her first-round match. Raducanu's impressive performance saw her hitting 26 winners while minimizing unforced errors, contrasting with Kerber's struggles with 29 unforced errors. Riding on her recent successes, Raducanu gears up to face Linda Noskova in a bid to secure a spot in the Stuttgart quarterfinals, building on her promising clay-court form showcased in Germany.
