The number of tennis predictions today might be getting smaller as we approach the end of the 2024 Australian Open. However, the scheduled matches are the most exciting of the entire two week period. And for this one, it’s a rematch of the 2023 US Open final, so let me show you how things could go.

This is the most exciting of the two semi-finals, in my humble opinion. In fact, some are considering this the final since the other semi-final involves a qualifier and the number 2 seed. So really, the winner of this one should go on to win the tournament, which makes it extra interesting!
Check out my Gauff vs Sabalenka predictions for this huge game below:
Sabalenka to win @ 10/21 (1.48)
I know that Coco Gauff won their last encounter in a Grand Slam final. However, Sabalenka has been quite incredible throughout the tournament to reach this point. In fact, she hasn’t dropped a single set, and she ‘double bagelled’ the 28th seed in round three. So for me, she has the kind of form and confidence to beat Gauff.
Sabalenka -3.5 games handicap @ 10/11 (1.91)
If Aryna Sabalenka plays the way she has been playing, I can see her putting 4 or more games between herself and Gauff when all is said and done. Of course, this must occur for the market to come through. But with such great odds on offer, this one seems a solid play for the overall result.
Coco Gauff vs Aryna Sabalenka odds
Sabalenka is favoured to win this match with a probability of 67.70%. As for the chance for Gauff to win, this is 38.10%.
2023 US Open final rematch – Sabalenka set to reverse the result
Before these two take the court, which will be the first match on Rod Laver Arena as per the Australian Open schedule, let me share some key information.
Coco Gauff preview
Coco Gauff must be feeling confident at the moment. She won the last Grand Slam on the WTA Tour, which was the US Open. And she has yet to lose a match in the 2024 season, which is quite amazing. However, she went three sets with the unseeded Kostyuk in the quarters, while Sabalenka smoked the 9th seed in straight sets.
Aryna Sabalenka preview
As I’m sure you know, Sabalenka is the defending champion, and she will be eager to defend her title for both pride and points. More importantly, I feel she will be desperate to take out Coco Gauff to get her revenge for the US Open final in 2023. Additionally, she hasn’t just been winning her matches in Australia – she has destroyed everyone in her path.
Gauff vs Sabalenka head to head
Coco Gauff holds a 4-2 head to head lead over Aryna Sabalenka. Yet three of her four wins required a deciding set. So clearly, the matches have been tight between these two, and this sets the stage for a feisty semi-final in Melbourne.
