Tony Dungy launched a big blitz on ESPN over this action by tennis phenom Coco Gauff after her U.S. Open win

Sep 15, 2023

ESPN has gone from the nation’s premiere sports network to just another left-wing mouthpiece of the Democrats.

And as part of their new Disney-owned corporate model, Christians are the enemy.

But they didn’t count on Tony Dungy tenaciously making sure ESPN would not cover up this moving Christian testimony. 

A powerful moment unfolded shortly after tennis star Coco Gauff won her first U.S. Open title.

ESPN tries to cover up the truth

Shortly after her surprising victory, Gauff stopped her celebration to bow down and pray to the Lord.

Of course, that is something ESPN simply can’t accept.

So, they simply ignored it.

Or at least they tried to ignore it hoping no one would notice.

But Tony Dungy, the legendary coach, announcer, and well-known Christian was having none of it.

Gauff, 19, had just defeated Aryna Sabalenka 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, when she was subsequently “overcome with emotion,” embracing coaches and family.

She then headed back to the court to pray.

The tennis star, who with her upset victory became the first teenager to win the Open since Serena Williams’ 1999 win, also later spoke openly about her faith.

The teen tennis phenom told ESPN’s Mary Jo Fernández about her views on God, prayer, and trials.

“I feel like I’m in shock,” she said of her previous highly-publicized loss. “That French Open loss was a heartbreak. I realized God puts you through trials. This makes this moment even sweeter than I could imagine.”

Gauff also gave insight into what she says to God when she prays.

“I don’t pray for results,” she said. “I just ask that I get the strength to give it my all. Whatever happens, happens. I’m so blessed in this life.”

Coco Gauff spoke about her faith in God after winning the US Open:

“Oh my goodness. It means so much to me. I feel like I’m in shock. That French Open loss was a heartbreak. I realized God puts you through trials. This makes this moment even sweeter than I could imagine. I don’t…”

The coach weighs in

The prayer and faith statements received a lot of media and social media attention, as did another interaction about Gauff’s decision to pray on the court.

Famed football coach Tony Dungy blasted ESPN’s “SportsCenter” X account after a post by the sports outlet included video of Gauff praying but simply said she “took a moment to soak it all in after winning her first Grand Slam title.”

Dungy made it very clear exactly what Gauff was doing after her win.


Dungy is, of course, correct; it was very obvious. 

And it was a powerful testimony to Gauff’s love for and reliance upon the Lord.

But then again, that is exactly what ESPN cannot accept.
