WASHINGTON (AP) — Coco Gauff reached the Citi Open women’s doubles final Friday with fellow teenager Coco McNally, who also is into the singles semifinals in her first appearance in the main draw of a WTA tournament.
Gauff and McNally routed the third-seeded team of Russian Anna Kalinskaya and Miyu Kato of Japan 6-1, 6-2. The Americans will face the No. 4 seeds, American Maria Sanchez and Fanny Stollar, on Saturday.
Gauff, the 15-year-old who reached the fourth round at Wimbledon, and the 17-year-old McNally were given a wild card into the tournament. Their victory Friday came after McNally returned to the court after pulling off the latest upset in the women’s field.
