As we hit the third round stage of the women’s singles, we have a flurry of tennis predictions today lined up for you. However, the focus here will be all about my Alycia Parks vs Coco Gauff predictions. And I’ve got a couple of red hot markets for you to check out:
Parks +6.5 games handicap @ 17/20 (1.85)
If you look at the rankings for these two players, on paper, Gauff should overcome Parks comfortably. With that said, Alycia Parks took out the number 32 seed, Leylah Fernandez, in the previous round. For me, this will give her added belief that she can challenge a player like Coco Gauff, and I feel this could lead to a tight game.
Over 18.5 games @ 10/21 (1.48)
I’ve given one quick reason for why this match could be tight above. However, to enhance on that a little more, Gauff looked shaky when playing a fellow American in round two, and she’s facing another American here. Additionally, she’s looked a little vulnerable at the start of these matches at times, which Parks could capitalize on to push the match over 18.5 games.
Alycia Parks vs Coco Gauff odds
As of the latest odds, Parks has a mere 10% probability of victory here, while the chance for Gauff to win is 94.10%.
The battle of the Americans – Gauff to power past Parks in Melbourne?
Now that you know what’s coming up as per the Australian Open schedule, as well as what my predictions are, let’s adjust the focus to a couple of previews.
Alycia Parks preview
Alycia Parks might be well down in the WTA rankings at 82, but she’s already proven that she belongs on the big stage at the 2024 Australian Open. With a hard-fought win in the first round followed by a great performance to upset the 32 seed, she’s a name that tennis fans are now talking about. As for whether she can beat Coco Gauff, I believe she can make the match competitive, but a victory would be a huge shock.
Coco Gauff preview
We all know that Coco Gauff is now a Grand Slam champion, and to be honest, she’s a completely different player than she was 12 months ago. She’s more confident and more mature on the court, and she’s undoubtedly a tournament contender as the number 4 seed. However, she must make sure that she controls her nerves when facing a much lower-ranked American here.
Parks vs Gauff head to head
These two might be from the same country, but they’ve never crossed paths in a WTA event before. So this will be the first installment in the head-to-head records for Parks vs Gauff.
