Fifteen-year-old Cori Gauff is being hailed as "the comeback kid" after she saved two match points before going on to beat Polona Hercog and book her place in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

The US tennis sensation battled back from losing the first set and being 5-2 down in the second to win 3-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-5 on Centre Court.

Gauff, known as Coco, is the youngest female player to reach the second week of the tournament since Jennifer Capriati made it to the semi-finals aged 15 in 1991.

She is the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon in the professional era, winning three matches last week against higher-ranked women in the preliminary rounds before knocking out five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round of the main competition. #CoriGauff #gauff #wimbeldon #tennis #cocogauff
