15-Year-Old Cori "CoCo" Gauff quickly became a favorite at Wimbledon, shocking everyone when she beat five-time champion Venus Williams during round 1. 

She also defeated Magdalena Rybarikova and Polona Hercog to reach the last 16 of the singles draw.

Unfortunately for the tennis sensation, her incredible Wimbledon run has ended after she was defeated by 27-year-old Romanian seventh seed Simona Halep in the fourth round for a straight set loss 6-3, 6-3.

Her parents - Candi & Corey Gauff - were in the stands, per usual, cheering their daughter on. According to reports, CoCo called on her trainer during the second set after appearing to suffer from stomach cramps. Yikes.

This was CoCo's first Grand Slam tournament after becoming the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon's main draw in a decade after sliding through the qualifying rounds. The young Atlanta native entered the tournament ranked at 313th and has proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with on the tennis court.

 

Several celebs congratulated CoCo on social media - including First Lady Michelle Obama, Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles Lawson, Jaden Smith, Snoop Dogg, and more - and she lost it:

Meanwhile...

 

 

23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams just advanced into the quarterfinals for the 14th time after crushing Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2 on Court One.

"I've had more matches this week than the past five months but it's definitely good and I know I can play and I'm now physically better," she said immediately after coming off court.

She continued:

"Doing three hours of treatment every practice , every match, just to be able to have 50% pain - that was tough," she said. "I can't tell you how much better I feel... that's a victory in itself."

FUN FACT: Serena has never lost a set in seven career games against Suarez Navarro.

The 37-year-old tennis star, seeded 11th, is in the running for her record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title. If she wins, it'll be her eighth Wimbledon title after losing last year's final to Angelique Kerber.

Serena Williams will face American tennis player Alison Riske tomorrow, July 9th. Keeping our fingers crossed!
