Watch Coco Gauff show off ode to Roger Federer and Nick Kyrgios with attempt at 'the tweener'

American tennis sensation Coco Gauff has shared a video showing that perhaps age isn't on her side this time as she made her own attempt at the infamous 'tweener' usually associated with the legendary Roger Federer and Australia's Nick Kyrgios.

The 15-year-old, who has rocketed up the WTA rankings after a phenomenal run at the Australian Open that included victories over Venus Williams and defending champion Naomi Osaka, posted the video to her 198k followers.

The video showed the young American during a training session with the caption: "Working on my tweener game, hows it looking?" alongside a fist pump emoji and a face with a sticking out tongue.

The 'tweener' shot is made by hitting the ball between your legs, usually with your back to your opponent.

Gauff mentioned both Federer and Kyrgios in her tweet but as of yet neither male player has imparted any words of wisdom for the ambitious youngster.
