US Open champ Coco Gauff hopes for ceasefire in Gaza and for Israeli hostages to be returned home

Coco Gauff won her first Grand Slam at the US Open last year

Coco Gauff, who was named to TIME magazine’s 2024 Women of the Year list, is hoping for peace in Gaza and that Israeli hostages taken by Hamas are released, but the young tennis star fears the worst as the conflict continues.

Speaking to the magazine in an article published Wednesday, the 2023 U.S. Open champion addressed the ongoing war which began on Oct. 7 when Hamas militants attacked Israel’s southern border, killing more than 1,200 people, with some 250 others taken hostage.

“I don’t really support the mass violence going on to innocent people on both ends of the spectrum,” Gauff said. “And there’s one side that’s getting killed at more drastically faster rates than the other side.”

The magazine said that Gauff “wants Hamas to release all Israeli hostages and wants to see a ceasefire, but she fears that neither side is hearing the other.”

“I feel like it’s becoming more, if you don’t support what’s happening in Gaza, it makes you feel like you’re antisemitic,” Gauff added. “I feel far from that.”
