Sam Groth and Nicole Gibbs are giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the world of professional tennis all year long in My Tennis Life. To read more updates from Sam and Nicole, go to tennischannel.com.
From her first red-carpet event to seeing the eclipse to almost beating the world No. 1 at the US Open, Nicole Gibbs has done a lot over the past two months.
In New York, Gibbs qualified and won the first set off of Karolina Pliskova before falling, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Needless to say she's had some experiences she won't forget. But the grind doesn't stop as Gibbs is in Beijing this week.
