Coco Gauff – strength training at 10

Coco Gauff didn’t just suddenly arrive as a tennis player.

All the way back when she was just 10 (five years ago – a blink of an eye, but a full third of her life), she was already doing strength training.


She was working with Jeff Drock, a Boca Raton, Fla.-based trainer and former college player with a Master’s degree in sport behaviour and performance, and a list of credentials as long as your arm.

Drock works mainly with juniors and collegiate players, on footwork and physical conditioning.

It’s crazy how little she’s changed. But everything has changed.
