US teen, Coco Gauf has pulled off another upset after she eliminated reigning champion, Naomi Osaka from the Australian Open with a 6-3, 6-4 win over the world number four.

In the first set during their third-round match on Friday, the 15-year-old broke the Japanese star’s serve on 4-3, partly thanks to three unforced errors by Osaka, and served out the opener.

Meanwhile, Serena Williams’s quest for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title continues to evade her after her latest exit.
