Our favourite Jelena Ostapenko vs Coco Gauff – match predictions

Both Ostapenko and Gauff have displayed incredible skill and determination on the court, and their previous encounters have only added to the anticipation. As they prepare to face off once again, fans can expect a fierce battle filled with power, speed, and youthful exuberance.

Jelena Ostapenko to win @ 2/1 (3.00)

Penko is the underdog against Gauff, who claimed Citi Open and Western & Southern Open within a month to stake her claim for honours at Flushing Meadows. The American was on the losing side in their fourth-round meeting at Rod Laver Arena and will hope to turn the tables this time around. While the bookmakers and the assembled crowd will not be cheering for the Latvian ace, it looks unlikely her adventures will be cut short. She defeated Iga Swiatek in a three-set battle and should repeat her Australian Open heroics to send Gauff packing again.

Over 20.5 Games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Despite accumulating wins on the tour, Gauff has not been able to dominate her rivals of late. Four of her last six wins have seen required a deciding set and this meeting with a formidable foe points to a similar conclusion. An extended game with over 20.5 games seems likely as nine of Ostapenko’s last ten matches have been three-setters. The duo’s meeting in Melbourne finished in straight sets for the Latvian ace but it still saw 21 games being played.

Jelena Ostapenko preview

Paolini tried and failed. So did Avanesyan. Pera faced a similar fate. After gruelling victories, fatigue would have taken over and Swiatek smelled blood ahead of their fourth-round meeting. It was not to be as Penko ended the world number 1’s US Open title in another three-setter. The Latvian ace is showcasing what sets her apart and will be looking to give a similar account of her abilities against US’s latest tennis hope.

Coco Gauff preview

Like Ostapenko, Gauff does not have the word ‘give up’ in her vocabulary. Push her down and try your mind games, but the teenager will find a way to triumph. Siegemund found this the hard way and so did Andreeva. Mertens thought she had gotten away but it was not to be. Gauff even spoiled Wozniacki’s return to the courts. With recent silverware success in Washington and Cincinnati to push her forward, the American will be a tough nut to crack in the quarter-final meeting.

Jelena Ostapenko vs Coco Gauff head to head

Jelena and Coco have met twice before on the tennis’ grand stage. The first encounter took place in the final of the 2019 Linz Open, where Gauff emerged victorious in a thrilling 2-1 showdown. Fast forward to the 2023 Australian Open, and it was Ostapenko who had her moment of triumph, defeating Gauff in the fourth round.
