Coco Gauff opens up on her mysterious boyfriend – and their ‘super competitive’ summer plans


Coco Gauff disclosed her summer plans with her enigmatic partner, revealing that she is no longer single ahead of Wimbledon next month.

Over the next few months, the 20-year-old American, who has never advanced past the fourth round on grass, intends to keep herself occupied by engaging in a pastime she used to enjoy with her special someone.

Gauff stated at her media day at the German Open in Berlin last week, “It started because I loved reading as a kid and I kind of lost it when I got older.”

My first objective was to read 12 books, one every month. Then, my boyfriend has this habit of reading the number of books that correspond to the year that we are in—that is, 24 in 2024, 23 in 2023.

Naturally, Gauff saw her man’s everyday exercise as a challenge she needed. After all, her last major title is the US Open in 2023.

Twenty-year-old Coco Gauff has disclosed her new romantic status ahead of Wimbledon next month.

Her boyfriend’s name is Jalen, and all that is known about him is that he resides in Atlanta.

“I got really competitive and doubled my goal to match his when he said he was going to read 24. I like trying to finish faster than him,” she said. ‘I’m winning now since I’m two books ahead.’

Books like Taylor Jenkins Reid’s “Daisy Jones & the Six,” Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness,” Haruki Murakami’s “After Dark,” and Viola Davis’ autobiography “Finding Me” are among the titles on Gauff’s reading list.

The only details about Gauff’s lover that are known are that he goes by Jalen and that he resides in Atlanta.

Gauff revealed to Time magazine in April that she and Jalen had been dating for about a year.

The tennis player noted, “This is my first real relationship,” and continued, “Having someone to talk to who isn’t involved in tennis at all gives me a fresh perspective.”

The 2023 US Open champion has been tasked by Jalen to get busy this summer by taking up reading.

The mother of Jalen’s girlfriend is someone close to the tennis star that Jalen has managed to win over: Candi

One extremely significant individual who is close to Jalen’s girlfriend—her mother Candi—has been impressed.

Candi told Time, “My mom always said, if they’re bad in school, they’re probably bad adults.” He’s always been a kind, intelligent child.

However, Gauff still resides with her parents at their Florida home and has no immediate plans to move in with her partner.

“I don’t have a timeline on that,” the #2 player in the world acknowledged. “I always say it will happen sometime in my 20s.”
