US Open finalist Coco Gauff is starting to believe. She faces Aryna Sabalenka for the title

NEW YORK (AP) — Coco Gauff will try to win her first Grand Slam title when she meets Aryna Sabalenka in the U.S. Open final. Sabalenka won the Australian Open this year and is assured of moving up to No. 1 in the WTA rankings next week no matter what happens on Saturday in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Gauff is a 19-year-old from Florida who is on an 11-match winning streak and says she is starting to believe in her abilities as much as everyone else has for years. Sabalenka is a 25-year-old from Belarus and is well aware that most of the 23,000 or so spectators at the final will be cheering for Gauff.
