Loading… Martina Navratilova has said rising tennis star, Coco Gauff, has the ability to “change the world for the better” after the American delivered a powerful speech at a Black Lives Matter demonstration last month.Gauff shot to prominence at Wimbledon last year when she beat Venus Williams en route to the last 16 at the age of 15, before claiming her maiden WTA title in October.
