In the back, a young Gauff wore a white shirt and a dark blue hat as she cheered. The 20-year-old reposted the story, amazed that someone found the clip.

“Wowwwwwww, there’s no way anyone found this,” Gauff wrote. ‘That’s me watching Venus at the US Open. [I] I didn’t even know that television caught me in the stands. Whoever found this, I thank you, my goodness.

“THIS IS CRAZY,” he continued. ‘Time flies. I was definitely (definitely) looking at the jumbotron to see if the camera would show me, lol. Thanks for sharing.’
