Gauff shared her full review of Zendaya’s new film and said she thought it was a “really well-done movie”

Coco Gauff made a hilarious realization about her personal life after seeing the new film, Challengers, in which Zendaya plays an intense tennis star.

Gauff, 20, reacted to the film, which follows Zendaya’s character as she navigates a love triangle with two fellow tennis players, and said, “I told my boyfriend, ‘Thank God you don’t play tennis,’ because [Tashi Duncan is] right, I would not want to date a scrub on tour,” according to an Instagram post from ESPNW.

After ESPNW shared the quote, Gauff clarified that her comments were taken a bit too seriously. “I was joking bruh plz don’t take this seriously,” she wrote in the comments on the post.

Gauff has kept her relationship mostly private, but the No. 3-ranked player in the world recently shared more details about her relationship during an interview with Time.

“This is my first real relationship,” Gauff said, adding, “To just have someone to talk to who is not involved in tennis at all gives me a fresh perspective.”

Gauff watched Challengers on April 28 with Candi and shared her full review of the film during an Instagram Live after the screening.

“I thought it was a really well-done movie,” Gauff said to her followers.

The tennis star said she thinks she would have been a friendly competitor to Zendaya’s character, Tashi Duncan, if she were a real tennis pro. “I think in a weird sense, Tashi and I could have been friends on tour. Not close friends, we would have been frenemies. We would have respected each other,” she said.
