Atlanta native Coco Gauff will be the headline act on Centre Court at Wimbledon on Friday.

Not bad for a 15-year-old in her first Grand Slam tournament.

The American will play the last match of the day at the All England Club's biggest stadium when she faces Polona Hercog of Slovenia, another unseeded player.

Gauff has quickly become a star at the grass-court major championship. She beat five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams in the first round and 2017 semifinalist Magdalena Rybarikova in the second.

Her match will air on ESPN and ESPN+ at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Gauff, who was born in Georgia and is now based in Florida, is the 12th-youngest player to compete in women's singles at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament since professionals were first admitted in 1968. The 11 who were younger all got spots in the draw via direct entry, rather than qualifying.

Gauff came into the week outside the top 300 but was granted a wild card by the All England Club for qualifying. She rolled through those rounds at a nearby site, knocking off the event's top seed.
