Coco Gauff vs Veronika Kudermetova – Match Predictions

Coco Gauff to Win

Kudermetova made it to the quarter-finals of last year’s French Open. But prior to that, crashed out of Madrid and Rome Masters in the first round. She faced a similar fate in Charleston Open this year. On the other hand, Gauff had sustained runs in Madrid and Rome before her placement in the final. While Kudermetova has struggled to give her best on her hard court outings, Gauff continues to punch above her weight. Based on this, we are backing the American to triumph.

2-0 to Coco Gauff

Gauff has impressed on the hard court this season. As attention turns towards the European clay court events, she will have to raise her game. She was knocked out in the first round at last year’s WTA Stuttgart and will not be willing to make the same mistake. In Kudermetova, she has a rival who is struggling for form and one with whom she can best. It should be a straight forward result in favour of the 19-year-old American.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.

Coco Gauff

The 19-year-old American started the 2023 season with the Auckland Open trophy. She came close to adding to her silverware in WTA Dubai and Indian Wells but was ousted in the semi-final and quarter-final stages. She has fond memories of playing on the clay court with a final appearance at last year’s Roland Garros.

Veronika Kudermetova

The 2023 season has seen Kudermetova slide down the rankings. She has struggled to live up to her billing, playing with injuries for its duration. She did start the year strongly with a run to the semi-finals of the Adelaide Open and then finishing at the same stage in Doha. However, she has been knocked out in the first round in three of the last four tournaments she has participated in.
