Coco Gauff vs Liudmila Samsonova – Match Predictions

Liudmila Samsonova to Win

Gauff and Samsonova have put up impressive fixtures every time they have come together and this meeting will be no different. Gauff was forced to come back after giving up the lead as the matches found their conclusion in a deciding set. As they meet for the third time and after a two-year break, we believe Samsonova has enough experience on her side not to allow Gauff a way back into the encounter.

2-0 to Liudmila Samsonova

On this is for certain, there is little to separate the duo in quality. Samsonova has yet to drop a set and we believe her path to the final will be forged in the same manner. The Russian ace took the lead against Gauff in their previous encounters but let it slip away. As the defending champion and with much to prove, she will fancy her chances and should be able to prove it on the court. While it will be an exciting battle, Samsonova has all the tricks and experience to force a 2-0 victory.
