The 15-year-old American took the tennis world by storm after beating Venus Williams in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships in the summer. Reports followed that she'd be a millionaire before the end of the year. She then took part in a blockbuster US Open match against Naomi Osaka, losing 6-3, 6-0 in New York.

But the teenager's extraordinary year is far from over, as her 6-4, 6-4 victory over Andrea Petkovic in the Upper Austria Ladies Linz semifinal on Saturday means she will now make her debut in a tour final.

Gauff will do so aged 15 years and 213 days, which means she is the youngest woman to reach a WTA final for 15 years, according to Tennis.com.

Tennis.com adds that Gauff will rise from her current WTA ranking of 110 to 80 or 81 for her appearance in the final, but could climb as high as 71 if she wins the competition.
