Coco Gauff has had two very busy weeks in Italy, and its paid off. Fresh off her impressive run in Rome last week, the 17-year-old outshined Wang Qiang, 6-1, 6-3, in the Parma final on Saturday to capture her second career WTA title.
Playing in her second tour-level final, Gauff jumped to an early 3-0 lead. Serving for the set at 5-1, two back-to-back double faults almost cost her the game, fighting off three break points to take the first set from Wang.
Having traded four holds in the second set, Gauff pulled away from the inspired Chinese, winning four of the last five games to close out the match.
