Coco Gauff is looking right at home on Wimbledon's Centre Court, and playing like she's fully intent on being back there a few more times this year.

The French Open runner-up beat Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-2, 6-3 to reach the third round at the grass-court Grand Slam, where she made her breakthrough as a 15-year-old in 2019 by reaching the fourth round. That made her an instant favorite on Centre Court, and the 18-year-old American said she is getting used to the venue by now. She also reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last year.

"I think that was the first time I walked on Centre Court and wasn't nervous," Gauff said. "I don't know if that's experience."

Gauff will face Amanda Anisimova in the third round.
