Coco Gauff wins third round at US Open in New Balance Head-to-Toe – Footwear News
Coco Gauff earned her latest US Open victory in style.
The 18-year-old tennis star hit the court at the USTA Bille Jean King National Tennis Center on Wednesday for her match against Russian player Elena-Gabriela Ruse. After a few round trips, Gauff secured her spot in the third round with a 6-2, 7-6(4) victory over Ruse. Not only did she pick up the win, but she landed the third-fastest serve ever in women’s US Open history.
On the court, Gauff wore a New Balance skirt and top. Her top featured a navy blue bodice with white sleeves and a v-neckline. The top also featured pops of green and purple with bright coral red on the sides. She added a New Balance headband in blue and white. Her skirt matched her top, with a navy plaid print similar to her shirt.
Gauff added a pair of bright New Balance shoes to complete her look. His sneakers featured shades of coral, light blue and neon green that popped against the soft green court. She designed the shoes alongside the athletic brand over the summer, called New Balance Coco CG1. The sneaker emphasizes comfort and stability with woven FitWeave Lite uppers, durable rubber outsoles and FuelCell midsoles crafted from EVA foam. The style is completed with New Balance’s Energy Arc technology, which uses midsole voids and fiber plate geometry to provide better energy return to its wearers.
Gauff will return to the court at the 2022 US Open on Friday, playing against America’s Madison Keys.
