American teenage sensation Coco Gauff is ready to resume her career and sees no problem playing in empty arenas.
“It will be easier for me to address. I’ve only been on tour a year so I will just go back to my junior years when we didn’t have much of a crowd,” Gauff told the BBC.
“I’m ready to get back on court and travel again – I like travelling more than I like staying home.
“I just be myself, I don’t really focus on the cameras. I just be myself and hope that works out.”
Gauff said she wants to be an inspiration to her younger brothers.
“My determination to win is one thing that always drives me, and also my brothers – to inspire them to get up and work hard,” she said.
“I know they look up to me so I try to be a good example.
“Every time I go to a tournament I ask them what they want. From Australia my youngest brother Cameron said he wanted a shark tooth necklace and my other brother Cody, he’s 12, asked for 1% – or it may have been 10% – of my prize money.
“He is so money-orientated, which is not a good thing!”
