London: Teenager Coco Gauff has fired up Wimbledon but on Friday she made former soldier Brian Connor, 66, and his fellow Chelsea Pensioners especially happy.
Connor, who reached the rank of Sergeant-Major after 23 years service largely in the Intelligence Corps, and his fellow scarlet-coated former servicemen made sure they got their share of photographs with Gauff, 15, following her courageous three-set win in her third round match beating Slovenian Polona Hercog 3-6, 7-6 (9/7), 7-5 in just under three hours.
