Sports

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The family of teen-tennis sensation Coco Gauff is in Birmingham this week to watch her younger brother play in a national baseball tournament.

The Piper Davis baseball tournament is once again here in the Magic City. Codey Gauff plays catcher on the Delray Beach team. CBS 42 caught up with Codey and his grandparents Wednesday to talk more about Coco’s historic run at Wimbledon.

Coco’s unexpected but remarkable run at Wimbledon ended Monday when  she lost to former No. 1 Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round. Gauff is the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon’s main draw in the professional era.
