Coco Gauff 2-0
Gauff is still a teenager but has found her place among the best players in the world. She is not coming off a successful week and will have to use this tournament to get back in shape and increase her confidence before Wimbledon. Pera has a solid season, but she will not be able to challenge Gauff, and the World No. 7 will win this one in straight sets.
First set under 9.5 games
Gauff is the type of player who plays hard from the opening point, and that will give her a huge advantage in this match. She moves very well on any surface, and Perra will have a tough time winning any game in this match. Gauff will take over control early on and will win the opener with under 9.5 games.
