Dubai: Coco Gauff on Thursday became the fourth American to reach the 10 WTA semifinals before turning 19 during her quarterfinal match against Madison Keys in Dubai Championships, but what caught the eye were the number of unforced errors in the game.

In an all-American quarterfinal, Keys committed an astonishing 52 unforced errors. Gauff, who is 10 years younger than Keys, didn’t had a clean game either. She committed 31 unforced errors.

While Gauff could consider herself lucky to get through, tennis fans from around the world were in total disbelief after the bizarre round of eight clash.

The 18-year-old fifth seed relied on her steady serve and capitalized on Keys’ mistakes to set up a semifinal clash with Iga Swiatek.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions.

Meanwhile, top-ranked Swiatek stayed undefeated against Gauff, beating the American teenager 6-4, 6-2 to reach the final on Friday.

The three-time Grand Slam champion improved to 6-0 against the 18-year-old Gauff, and each victory has been in straight sets. The Pole beat Gauff in last year’s French Open final.
