Gauff Australian Open 2023 Odds

Coco Gauff is a young American who we are fairly confident that you may have heard of. This 18-year-old shot to fame a few years ago by putting in some huge performances at Wimbledon. And her career has been on an upward trajectory since establishing herself in the summer of 2019. In fact, at the moment, Gauff is number 7 in the WTA rankings. Yet she has been as high as number 4 back in October 2022.

Although Coco Gauff was knocked out of the Australian Open singles tournament in the round of 16, she has enjoyed a good run in doubles, reaching the semi-final. As a matter of fact, Gauff and her partner, compatriot Jessica Pegula are the second seeded team on the doubles side. That said, let’s see how the American has fared so far.

First Four Rounds – Coco Gauff Australian Open Doubles 2023

Cori Gauff and Jessica Pegula met the unseeded pair of Tereza Martincova and Donna Vekic in the first round, coming out on top in three sets. The Americans haven’t looked back since then; they won their next three matches in straight sets, defeating 11th seeded Chan/Yang along the way.

Upcoming Match vs Aoyama/Shibahara – Coco Gauff Australian Open Doubles 2023

With their win over the 11th seeds, Gauff and Pegula secured a spot in the Australian Open semi-final. Coco Gauff and her compatriot will have to contend with 10th seeded Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara for a place in the final. These teams will meet for the first time on Friday, so it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Coco Gauff Recent Form Prior To Australian Open Doubles 2023

To be fair, Coco Gauff didn’t play any doubles matches prior to the 2023 Australian Open. She did participate in singles though, maintaining a perfect record en route to the ASB Classic title. That said, these are Gauff’s most recent doubles matches, which includes the Billie Jean King cup, as well as last year’s World Tour Finals:

  • Gauff/McNally vs Linette/Rosolska – won 2-0
  • Gauff/Pegula vs Krejcikova/Siniakova – lost 0-2
  • Gauff/Pegula vs  Krawczyk/Schuurs – lost 1-2
  • Gauff/Pegula vs Xu/Yang – lost 1-2

Interestingly, the Gauff and Pegula pair didn’t fare too well at the Tour Finals late last year; they finished last in their group, losing three of three.

Gauff Injury update: 100% Fit and Healthy

While many of the bigger names for the women’s Australian Open are dealing with a few injuries, Gauff is 100% injury free, as far as we know. Of course, since she competed just last week, we have a pretty good idea of her physical fitness. Nothing seemed to be bothering her on her way to winning those 250 events. Adding to that, we don’t remember a single moment where Gauff even called the trainer onto the court.

Therefore, we think it’s more than fair to say that Coco Gauff is looking good from a fitness standpoint going into this Grand Slam tournament.

Gauff Australian Open Performances In The Past

It’s pretty amazing that at 18 years old, Coco Gauff has already competed in this tournament three times. Her first appearance came back in 2020 when she managed to make the 4th round. Interestingly, this first appearance was actually her best performance at the Australian Open to date. That’s because in 2021 she went out in the 2nd round, and this was followed by a first-round exit in 2022.

Of course, this isn’t the direction that Coco Gauff wants her performances to be moving in for this event. And while this is actually her worst of the four Grand Slams in terms of winning percentage, something feels different this year. We say that because in 2022 alone, Gauff made her first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros. Then at the 2022 US Open, she made the quarter-finals, which was another personal best for that event. Needless to say, these kinds of performances will fill her with confidence.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that Gauff is now a solidified top-10 player. This kind of ranking and subsequent experience is something she didn’t have with previous Australian Open appearances. And thanks to her number 7 ranking, she will go in as the 7th seed. Theoretically, this means her opening rounds should be fairly comfortable, which is also great for confidence.

Gauff Australian Open 2023 Prediction – Final

Although both teams have never met, we’re fairly confident that Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula will advance to the doubles final at the expense of their Japanese opponents. The American pair have been unstoppable, winning seven sets in a row. Should they win, they’ll take on top seeded Krejcikova/Siniakova or unseeded Kostyuk/Ruse. All in all, we believe Gauff’s Australian Open doubles campaign will end in the final.
