Coco’s official name is Cori Dionne Gauff, being named after her father Corey Gauff, she explained to Sports Illustrated: "My parents always wanted their first child to be named Corey or Cori.

Is Coco Gauff dating or in a relationship?

Does Coco Gauff have a boyfriend? Yes, she does however the tennis super has been very careful to keep her man out of the spotlight to avoid unwanted attention.

Reportedly Coco has been dating the same man for over a year, but has yet to reveal his name or identity.

Speaking to Time earlier in 2024, she stated: "This is my first real relationship… To just have someone to talk to who is not involved in tennis at all gives me a fresh perspective."

Whilst she’s kept his identity away from the public eye for a while, it seems like this year might be the year that he steps into the limelight, just not during the Wimbledon or the Olympic Games in Paris, according to Coco as she spoke to People.

“My boyfriend, he'll probably come to maybe some tournaments in the U.S. It's just a little bit easier than coming to Europe," she told the publication.
