Nadal has some words of wisdom for her.

“I just will tell her that enjoy, and just work hard off court every time that she’s on-court or in the gym,” Nadal, the 18-time Grand Slam winner, said on ESPN after advancing to the fourth round.”But then enjoy life, too. You cannot be all day thinking about tennis, no? I think everybody believes that I have been a very hard worker and it’s true. I have been a very hard worker on court. But outside of the court, I didn’t miss much during all my life. I went for party with my friends, I did all the things that they did, sometimes less than them but I was able to do it.

Federer didn’t win the first of his 20 majors until he was in his early 20s, but, too, wishes Gauff the best.

“Coco’s doing an amazing job, it’s fun to watch,” he said on the BBC. “She’s really won over all the hearts from all the fans around the world who like tennis.  She’s been great. Me on the other hand, I’m don’t know many years I have left.”
