Coco Gauff advances to third round at Indian Wells – JWS

16th seed Coco Gauff bounced fellow American Claire Liu 6-1, 7-6 (4) at Indian Wells on Friday night to advance to the third round of the tournament.

Gauff defeated Liu in just over two hours and dropped only two break points in two sets of battles. After sprinting to the overwhelming opening set lead, Gauff closed the tight second set with a surge of Louis.

The Friday night victory sets the stage for a thrilling third round match against 24th Simona Halep, who gave Ekaterina Alexandrova three sets of wins in the second round. Halep defeated an American teen at Wimbledon in 2019 and won the only previous meeting between her and Gauff.

Gauff and Halep will face off at Indian Wells on Sunday.
