Coco Gauff to Win a Set

This is an interesting match-up between two players in the top 10 of the WTA rankings. Aryna Sabalenka has been one of the toughest players to beat since the start of the year. She has actually lost just once in 2023, with 16 wins in 17 singles matches (including walkovers). However, the Belarusian tends to struggle against Cori Gauff. As a matter of fact, these players have met four times in the past, and Gauff won three of those clashes, including their last two. Bearing in mind that Sabalenka has never beaten Coco Gauff in straight sets, we are backing the American to take at least one set from this match.

Over 21.5 Total Games

We would like to point out that meetings between these players have not been very one-sided. These players squared off against each other four times in the past, and three of those meetings ended in maximum sets, comfortably going over 25 games. Furthermore, excluding walkovers, three of Sabalenka’s last four matches ended in three sets. On that note, we believe there’s another three-setter in store for us, and this match will go over 21.5 games.

Coco Gauff vs Aryna Sabalenka Preview

How have these players fared so far in this competition? Let’s take a look.

Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff is coming off a three-sets victory over Rebecca Peterson. The American has looked good so far, surrendering just one set across three matches in this tournament. Gauff will contend with a familiar foe for a semi-final spot. It’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against her Belarusian opponent.

Aryna Sabalenka

On the other hand, Aryna Sabalenka avenged her only loss of the year by defeating Barbora Krejcikova in three sets. That was her 16th win in 17 matches this season. Sabalenka will have her work cut out for her as she takes on Coco Gauff in the quarter-final. Can she improve her poor record against the American?
