Coco Gauff wins the ASB Classic in a great start to 2023

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) – Top-seeded American Coco Gauff capped an impressive start to the season Sunday by beating Spanish qualifier Viktoria Masarova 6-1, 6-1 in the final of the ‘ASB Classic.

Gauff claimed her third WTA Tour title, but first in years on hard courts, boosting her confidence ahead of the Australian Open.

The game was marred by another of the long rain breaks that have been typical of a week in Auckland where games have been delayed or forced indoors. Gauff, 18, handled the weather challenge better than most because he’s used to rain interruptions from the tropical climate of his native Florida.

She didn’t drop a set all week, although she faced tough matches against former Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin and seventh seed Danka Kovinic.

“It’s been a great week for me despite the rain,” Gauff said. “I couldn’t ask for a better start to the season.
