Coco Vandeweghe Biography

A New York City native who currently resides in Newport Beach, Calif., Vandeweghe didn’t pick up a racket until the age of 11, but has not let that slow her down for one moment. She was the first American in 10 years to win the US Open junior tournament without losing a set in 2008 and reached her first WTA final at Stanford in 2012. Self-described as “a total California girl,” she spends most her days off at the beach or learning to play her first song on the guitar.
