Gauff, already the youngest competitor ever to qualify at the All England Club in the professional era, showed the poise and power of a much older, much more experienced player, pulling off a 6-4, 6-4 victory in the first round over Venus Williams, who at 39 was the oldest woman in the field.
Gauff, playing in her first grand slam match, converted her fourth match point when Williams sent a forehand into the net, then broke into sobs before shaking hands with her opponent.
In a battle of youth versus experience - Williams, 39, had won four grand slam singles titles, two at Wimbledon, before Gauff was even born - the teenager was the victor, as she refused to be intimidated by the occasion or her opponent.
She won the French Open title past year and, on this evidence, she is more than ready to make a big impression in the senior game.
"She [Venus Williams] said congratulations".
Vondrousova reached her first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros, losing in straight sets to Ash Barty. "And I was just telling her that she's so inspiring".
Speaking afterwards, she told the BBC: "Honestly, I don't really know how to feel". That's the first time I have ever cried after winning a match.

Lampard excused from Derby training for Chelsea talks
Derby County confirmed last week that they had allowed Lampard to hold talks with Chelsea over the vacant job. The 41-year-old would be a popular appointment given his remarkable success during his time as a player.
"There are answers to questions that you guys ask that I still haven't figured out yet", she admitted.
Venus Williams cut a desolate figure in her post-match press conference, but was lavish in her praise for her conqueror. Magdalena Rybarikova awaits Gauff in the second round.
"I am delighted that they've chosen me and I am happy that Marian is on board with it". Osaka famously beat Serena Williams to win the U.S. Open a year ago.
"I definitely had to tell myself to stay calm, I had to remind myself that the lines are the same lines, the courts are the same size and after every point I told myself "stay calm".
"I am literally living my dream right now and not many people get to say that".
Back-to-back double faults in the fifth game of the second set by Williams saw her broken to love.
