She then bested Williams again during her Australian Open debut in January 2020 and defeated Naomi Osaka at the same event. Read our interview with track and field Olympian Alyson Felix here. Gauff finished her statement by wishing all of her fellow athletes well. “I want to wish TEAM USA best of luck and a safe game for every Olympian and the entire Olympic family.” TOPICS: 2020 Olympics black women in sports
