Cori Gauff has been knocked out of the Luxembourg Open in 59 minutes by Anna Blinkova 6-4 6-0.

The 15-year-old, ranked 71 in the world, won her maiden WTA title – the Linz Open – just days ago to become the youngest player to win a WTA title in 15 years.

"I'm very happy with my performance," world number 66 Blinkova said post-match.

" I didn't make a lot of mistakes and I had the right tactics. I was calm and I did my job well today."

"I was very focused. I know she's a great player and I knew she was coming off a WTA tournament win, so I was well prepared."

Blinkova will now face Tatjana Maria in the second round.
