NEW YORK — Caroline Garcia crushed Coco Gauff's dreams of taking up the mantle from retiring American great Serena Williams and winning her first U.S. Open with a comprehensive 6-3 6-4 win on Tuesday.

The Frenchwoman wasted no time in putting pressure on 18-year-old Gauff, stepping into the court to attack her second serve and clobbering forehands to race out to a 4-0 lead as rain-soaked fans were still finding their seats at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
