Coco Gauff served as the protagonist in her 2023 US Open story on Thursday. The 19-year-old might have had some inspiration from a certain anime series.
Gauff punched her ticket to the U.S. Open Final after defeating Karolina Muchová 6-4, 7-5 at Arthur Ashe Stadium in the semifinal match.
After the win, Gauff was asked about how she planned to spend the rest of her evening. Aside from the usual press conference and medical treatment, the teenager said she plans to watch some anime. She also admitted that the latter was how she spent the hours prior to her match against Muchová.
“Literally today, I watched like 4 or 5 episodes of ‘My Hero Academia’ before I played,” said Gauff.
