Jasmine Paolini vs Coco Gauff – match predictions
2-1 to Coco Gauff
Paolini’s impressive journey continues, showcasing her versatility and determination on the hard courts. She has come through the qualifiers and only dropped a set during the qualifiers. Meanwhile, Gauff’s youthful energy and dynamic playing style have propelled her to this stage. The American ace has made little work of Noskova and Sherif in recent rounds but will be expecting a tooth-and-nail battle against Paolini. Their prior meeting saw Gauff triumphing 2-1 and Paolini’s current form states that a similar conclusion is likley.
Over 19.5 games
Gauff’s victories over Sherif and Noskova only saw her need 16 games to triumph at each time of asking. In Paolini, she is coming against a rival who was leading world number 4, Rybakina 5-2 in the second set after claiming the first 6-4. This will not be an easy meeting for any of them and we should have a long battle to find out who comes on top. At least 19.5 games will be played before a victor is found out in this duel.
Jasmine Paolini vs Coco Gauff preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Cincinnati Open.
The Italian has impressed in Cincinnati. She has taken all challenges and comes out on top. Her best performance came against Rybakina, who retired with Paolini and needed just one more game to cut her off with ease. It has been impressive that since her come-from-behind victory over Rebeka Masarova in the qualifiers, she has not dropped a single set. In Gauff she comes against a familiar foe and will have to deliver her best performance with a semi-final slot on the line.
Since returning to familiar surroundings, Gauff has impressed on the court. She claimed the Citi Open title at Maria Sakkari’s expense in Washington and reached the quarter-final stage in Montreal, before running into eventual champion Pegula. In Cincinnati, her two wins have been swift with only 200 minutes spent on the court. With fresh legs and the 1000 points in her sights, she will be gunning to give her best in her third successive quarter-final.
