Coco Gauff emerged vic¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠ous at Roland Gar¬≠ros, con¬≠quer¬≠ing the wom¬≠en‚Äôs dou¬≠bles title along¬≠side part¬≠ner Kate¬≠ri¬≠na Sini¬≠ako¬≠va on Sunday. 

This tri­umph marked Gauf­f’s maid­en Grand Slam dou­bles vic­to­ry, fol­low­ing defeats in the 2022 French Open and 2021 US Open finals.

The 20-year-old Amer¬≠i¬≠can teamed up with the expe¬≠ri¬≠enced Czech play¬≠er just two days before the tour¬≠na¬≠ment. Their impres¬≠sive chem¬≠istry shone through as they defeat¬≠ed the Ital¬≠ian duo of Jas¬≠mine Paoli¬≠ni and Sara Errani 7‚Äď6(5), 6‚Äď3 in a thrilling con¬≠test on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Gauf­f’s tri­umph held extra sig­nif­i­cance as it came just three days after a tear­ful sin­gles semi­fi­nal loss to Iga Swiatek. The emo­tion­al roller­coast­er cul­mi­nat­ed in a joy­ous cel­e­bra­tion with Sini­ako­va, show­cas­ing Gauf­f’s resilience.

‚ÄúThird time‚Äôs the charm,‚ÄĚ Gauff declared, express¬≠ing grat¬≠i¬≠tude to Sini¬≠ako¬≠va for their last-minute part¬≠ner¬≠ship. She also acknowl¬≠edged the ear¬≠ly morn¬≠ing sup¬≠port from the crowd.

Sini¬≠ako¬≠va, a sea¬≠soned cham¬≠pi¬≠on with a career Grand Slam in dou¬≠bles, com¬≠mend¬≠ed Gauf¬≠f‚Äôs per¬≠for¬≠mance. ‚ÄúThese past two weeks have been incred¬≠i¬≠ble, filled with emo¬≠tions,‚ÄĚ she said, high¬≠light¬≠ing the last¬≠ing memories.

For the vet¬≠er¬≠an Errani (37), the expe¬≠ri¬≠ence was a mix of emo¬≠tions. While dis¬≠ap¬≠point¬≠ed by the defeat, she expressed joy at com¬≠pet¬≠ing at the top lev¬≠el again. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs tru¬≠ly spe¬≠cial to be back on this court,‚ÄĚ she stat¬≠ed, acknowl¬≠edg¬≠ing the uncer¬≠tain future of her play¬≠ing career.

Gauf¬≠f‚Äôs well-deserved dou¬≠bles vic¬≠to¬≠ry serves as a con¬≠fi¬≠dence boost¬≠er after the sin¬≠gles set¬≠back. This achieve¬≠ment undoubt¬≠ed¬≠ly pro¬≠pels her for¬≠ward in her pur¬≠suit of a future Grand Slam sin¬≠gles title.
