Flink, who only picked up a racquet for the first time at the age of nine - "I was a late starter, especially compared to Russian kids" - has become something of a globetrotter: her training and injury recovery have taken her to Florida, the Netherlands, Madrid and Germany over the years.

The results have been immediate: Flink zoomed from World No. In the main draw, Flink will face fellow qualifier Paula Badosa.

The team element didn't sit well with young Cori, though. I like the individual aspect - I like doubles too, but just one person on my team is enough. The youngster's individualism extends to her attitude to on-court coaching, too. And when he came on court to coach me [in juniors] it wasn't anything tactical, he was just telling me to stay calm and focused.
The Jam Man doubles up in sweet success for McNally
I've been hearing that for five years so I think I have it drilled into my mind by now. But Gauff does credit her father for what she describes as a "mental growth" in the two weeks before Wimbledon. And once you enjoy yourself you'll be able to have good results.
