Coco Gauff advanced in the 2022 French Open on Sunday.

And she's hoping the Miami Heat are able to do the same thing in the NBA playoffs.

The 18-year-old American took down Elise Mertens of Belgium in straight sets to reach the French Open quarterfinals for a second straight year. Following the victory, Gauff made her way over to a TV camera to write down her prediction for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Gauff, who hails from Delray Beach in South Florida, is pulling for the Heat to beat the Boston Celtics in Sunday night's series-deciding showdown.

Up next for the 18th-seeded Gauff at Roland-Garros is a matchup against a fellow Florida native, as she'll face Sloane Stephens in the quarterfinals. Stephens, 29, won the 2017 U.S. Open and was the 2018 French Open runner-up.

With the Game 1 of the NBA Finals set for Thursday and the women's singles final at the French Open set for Saturday, both Gauff and her favorite NBA team could be competing for a championship come next weekend.
