Coco Gauff grabs the ESPN mic and becomes a live TV host for another epic performance after winning the US Open

TENNIS star Coco Gauff transformed into a TV presenter after her dominant win at the US Open.

19-year-old Gauff prevailed against Jelena Ostapenko in the quarterfinals on Tuesday in the scorching hot Arthur Ashe Stadion.

It took the American just an hour and eight minutes to win 6-0, 6-2 in the 90+ degree New York heat.

And she obviously had plenty of energy left after her win and continued to wow the home crowd.

Gauff was interviewed on the pitch after her win, which secured her a place in the semifinals.

She took the microphone from ESPN host Mary Joe Fernandez and addressed the crowd to let them know what to expect.

The 19-year-old said: “I’ll take the microphone for this song.”

“Next is the world’s No. 1 player at the end of this tournament.”

“23 slams…Novak Djokovic!”

Djokovic was to follow Gauff onto the court for the quarter-final showdown against Taylor Fritz.

The Serbian is aiming for her 24th Grand Slam title – which would match Margaret Court’s record.

Djokovic needs to beat two Americans to reach the final in New York and a possible showdown with Carlos Alcaraz.

Serbian star Djokovic meets Fritz, with the winner taking on either Frances Tiafoe or Ben Shelton in the semifinals.

Alcaraz is the reigning champion and also defeated Djokovic in a thrilling Wimbledon final this year.

Gauff reached her first US Open semi-final on Tuesday by defeating Ostapenko.

She became the first American teenager to reach the semifinals since Serena Williams 22 years ago.

And the 19-year-old could have a career in television if this accomplishment sees her eventually retiring from the sport.
