YAS! Serena Williams, Coco Gauff, Naomi Osaka & Madison Keys Level Up To The 3rd Round At The 2020 Australian Open!

​ ​ ​ ​

#BlackGirlMagic is taking over the 2020 Australian Open! And we LOVE to see it! Serena Williams, Coco Gauff, Naomi Osaka & Madison Keys have advanced to the 3rd round. Oh, and you HAVE to see Rena & Coco’s epic dance routine. Get it all inside…

All this winning! The YBF tennis queens are taking over the 2020 Australian Open in Melbourne Park!

Could THIS be the year Serena Williams equals Margret Court’s Grand Slam record? We’re def rooting for her because we know this is an accomplishment Rena has been gunning for since she made her return to tennis post-pregnancy.

You’ll recall, the 38-year-old tennis star copped her 23rd Grand Slam Title after defeating her big sister Venus Williams at the 2017 Australian Open… while pregnant.

10.5 months after giving birth to her baby girl Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., she made her return to Wimbledon in an effort to win a historic 24th Grand Slam title. Unfortunately, she came up one match short and has been gunning for her 24th Grand Slam title ever since, after losing four Grand Slam finals over the last two seasons.

Rena just aced her way one step closer to nabbing her record 24th Grand Slam title after beating Slovenian player Tamara Zidansek - 6-2, 6-3. The win advanced her to the third round. Woot!

''I knew I had to step up, otherwise it was going to be a really long evening for me,'' Rena said after the watch.

Right after her victory, an interviewer asked Serena if her daughter Olympia understands what’s going on and her answer was priceless:

 

 

"She just cares about play-doh, and that's it, really ... I try to tell her I'm somebody, you know," Serena shared as the audience laughed. Ha! Cute.

During her post-game conference, a reporter asked Serena about her friend Meghan Markle’s exit from the Royal Family and she responded perfectly – like a good friend should. Check it:

 

 

Tomorrow, she’ll hit the court to battle it out against Chinese tennis player Qiang Wang.

15-year-old tennis phenom Coco Gauff was another YBF winner that will advance to the 3rd round. She beat Romanian tennis player Sorana Cirstea, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. Yassss!

The tennis star defeated Serena's sister Venus Williams for the second time in round one of the Australian Open.

Coco made history as the fourth woman in the past 30 years to win six or more major matches before turning 16! Congrats! She's def a force to be reckoned with. 

For her next match...

 

 

Coco will face defending champion Naomi Osaka in Round 3. Peep their last exchange on the court above.

Loving the sisterhood!

In between matches, Serena and Coco linked up for a epic dance routine you can check out above.

Speaking of Naomi...

 

 

Yesterday, Defending Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka (who's Japanese & Haitian) defeated Chinese tennis player Zheng Saisai, 6-2, 6-4, advancing her to third round where she will battle it out against Coco. Def a match worth watching.

When Naomi's not on the court or practicing for her next match, she's stalking Twitter:

 

 

And she's def a Serena stan:

 

 

By the way, Naomi will NOT be representing the United States at the 2020 Summer Olympics. The 22-year-old, who has dual citizenship from the U.S. and Japan, announced she will relinquish her American citizenship and compete for Japan in Tokyo for the upcoming Olympic games.

Also...

 

 

 

 

Madison Keys (who's biracial) also advanced to the 3rd round after beating Dutch tennis player Arantxa Rus today, 7-6, 6-2. She'll hit the court tomorrow for a match against Greek tennis player Maria Sakkari.
