Welcome to July, Short Listers. Here’s the news you’re going to want to tell your friends about today: a Wimbledon upset, Twitter memes and T-Swift drama. Let’s get to it.
‘Literally living my dream right now’
In her Grand Slam debut, 15-year-old Cori Gauff upset 39-year-old Venus Williams in the first round at Wimbledon on Monday. Gauff is the tournament’s youngest player, and Williams entered as the oldest. Gauff, who goes by the nickname “Coco,” became the youngest tennis player to win a match at Wimbledon since 1991. “I’m literally living my dream right now.’
And not many people get to say that,” said Grauff, who was ranked No. 313 in the world entering Monday. Gauff said that Williams, a five-time Wimbledon champion, was congratulatory.
