Living up to expectations is difficult. The task becomes complicated when you are heralded to follow in the footsteps of one of the greatest female tennis players ever. This was Coco Gauff’s conundrum when she was likened to Serena Williams after turning pro in 2018.

Five years later, she has picked up the gauntlet and has yet to turn 20. She already has a Grand Slam in her trophy cabinet and will look to add more to her ranks in the coming years. Her US Open triumph in 2023 serves what should be expected.

It was just the realization of a prophecy after she reached the French Open final as an 18-year-old last year. However, there is still a long way for her to go as evidenced by her two fourth-round exits at both the Australian Open and the Championships.

With plenty of tennis yet to come from the American starlet, lets take a look at her upcoming schedule.

After a disappointing early exit at Doha where she was eliminated in her first match against Katerina Siniakova, Coco Gauff started her quest towards winning the Dubai Open with a win over Elisabetta Cocciaretto (6-1, 7-5).

Her next opponent is a much dangerous one, Karolina Pliskova. The experienced Czech player is currently ranked 36th in the WTA rankings and while Gauff is clearly the favourite in this match, Pliskova will pose a bit of a threat.

Coco Gauff is currently sitting in the third spot in the WTA rankings and her next opponent at the Dubai Open, Karolina Pliskova, is 36th. So, it’s clear that the American has an advantage and enters this match as the presumable winner.

That being said, Gauff did suffer a surprising loss at the previous tournament in Doha in the early stages and the current H2H between her and Pliskova stands at 1-1, so it might not be all easy for Gauff as many expect.

Coco Gauff 2024 campaign

In 2023, few names have shined as brightly as Coco’s. The young American sensation embarked on an incredible journey in 2023, leaving a trail of success and silverware in her wake, culminating in her victory at the US Open.

Coco Gauff started the 2024 season with a win at Auckland Open, where she beat Elina Svitolina in the final. While this was supposed to be a warm-up tournament for the Australian Open, it was a great way to start the season and add to her trophy list.

At the Australian Open, Gauff had a very solid run. Unfortunately for Coco, her run ended in the semi-finals, where she was beaten by Aryina Sabalenka in straight sets (6-7, 4-6). Still, this semi-final was her best result at the Australian Open to date and a good way to kick-off her quest for another Grand Slam in 2024.

After reaching the semi-final at Australian Open, Gauff had high hopes heading into Doha. However, at the very start of the tournament, Gauff suffered a loss to Katerina Siniakova. The young American will try to put this disappointment behind her at the Dubai Open, the next tournament in her 2024 campaign.
