Teenage sensation Coco Gauff battled through the opening round at the US Open on her main-draw debut in New York.

Gauff, 15, overcame fellow teenager Anastasia Potapova 3-6 6-2 6-4 at Louis Armstrong Stadium on Tuesday.

The American rose to stardom at Wimbledon earlier this year, making the fourth round at the All England Club.

Gauff's main-draw debut at her home major went to plan, but only after a nervy start against the 18-year-old Russian.
