Coco Gauff just continues to smash records.

The 15-year-old phenom won her very first WTA singles title Sunday, defeating Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 in the final round of the 2019 Upper Austria Ladies Linz. She now is the youngest tennis player to win a WTA title since 2004.

After the victory, the WTA tweeted out a video of Gauff mid-celebration.

It’s been quite the year for Gauff. In addition to Sunday’s WTA singles title, she also became the youngest tennis player to win a match at the US Open since 2014 and defeated the likes of some of the top tennis players in the world, like Venus Williams.
