Ready to chomp down on some tennis predictions today for a high-profile WTA match? I’ve got just the thing you’re looking for! Below, you’ll find two predictions for the match between Gauff and Alexandrova for the 2024 German Open. 

Our favourite Coco Gauff vs Ekaterina Alexandrova predictions

The German Open is officially underway, and Alexandrova will be hoping to cause an upset here – just like she did in Berlin last year. As it happens, this is the exact same round they played each other in this tournament in 2023. But will history repeat itself, or will Gauff avenge that loss to Alexandrova on the grass courts of Berlin?

I’ve looked at the facts and figures and created the following two predictions:

Alexandrova to win a set – yes @ 3/5 (1.60)

Alexandrova has beaten Gauff in the past, and in the two times she’s lost to the world number 2, she’s taken a set from Gauff in one of those. Therefore, in two of her three matches against Coco Gauff, this market would have been a winner. 

Over 21.5 games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Two of the three meetings between these two have involved more than 21.5 games, which bodes well for this market. I also think that their current forms and the fact that they will play on grass here adds to the likelihood of this market coming through.

Coco Gauff vs Ekaterina Alexandrova odds

The most recent odds for Gauff vs Alexandrova show that Gauff has a 67.70% probability of victory vs a much lower 40% chance for Alexandrova.

Top seed starting grass court season with a tough challenge

Putting betting markets aside, let me give some additional information on these two ahead of the 2024 German Open match:

Coco Gauff preview

As the top seed, Coco Gauff received a bye into the second round of the German Open. However, I believe this doesn’t work in her favour since she’s coming here straight from the clay courts of Roland Garros. Additionally, she hasn’t always been the most successful grass court player, even if she does have the potential to be.

Ekaterina Alexandrova preview

As a top 20 player on the WTA Tour, Alexandrova is a threat to any of the big guns – including the top seed and world number 2, Coco Gauff. She’s taken Gauff out on this surface before, too, so I’m sure she will be quietly confident going into this match. She’s already beaten a tough opponent in the form of Haddad Maia in the opening round, too.

Gauff vs Alexandrova head to head

The WTA head-to-head records show that Gauff has the edge here with a 2-1 record over Alexandrova. But interestingly, Alexandrova beat Gauff in this tournament in 2023, so the outcome of this game might not be what many people are thinking. Then again, anything can happen on the day.
