Gauff, 15, became the youngest player to reach a WTA semi-final since Czech Republic's Nicole Vaidisova won the Tashkent Open in 2004, also aged 15. "I don't know what I have to do - but I know it's something".

"This is definitely unreal, my first final on the WTA", said Gauff, who only got into the main draw in Austria as a lucky loser.

Gauff, who is now ranked 110th in the world, lost the opening two games of the match, but then didn't look back as she claimed the first set 6-4 before a more straightforward 6-4 second set win to secure her final spot.

"This is insane", Gauff said.

She is already assured of a spot in the Australian Open field in January with her rise in the rankings.

Gauff was congratulated by the likes of former first lady Michelle Obama and actor and musician Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith.

After toppling Stefanie Voegele, Cori passed Kateryna Kozlova to advance into the last eight where she got the opportunity to face the top-10 opponent and the WTA Finals contender Kiki Bertens.

"I've had lots of luck and happiness right here".

"It's insane today, beating a top 10". I couldn't ask for anything better at this event.

Five-time major victor and former world number one Sharapova, 32, has been carrying a shoulder injury and hasn't played since a first-round exit at the US Open. She continued, "And she was like "No, come with me" and I was just shocked because no one ever does that". "My first final, a lot of firsts for me here, so I hope I can keep this going".

The match ended on Gauff's second match point as Bertens sent a return wide.
