We have reached the quarter-finals of the Canadian Open, and things are shaping up nicely for some great battles. And for this specific match, it’s Pegula vs Gauff to see which American marches on to the semi-finals. Below, you can view my predictions for this intriguing contest.

Pegula vs Gauff – Match Predictions
Although this is the Canadian Open we are talking about, this match will see two top American players go up against one another. Of course, it’s Gauff vs Pegula in a showdown for the semi-finals, and in my opinion, Coco Gauff has a slight edge. As you might recall, she lifted the title last week at the Citi Open, which was pretty huge for the young American. Additionally, she’s carried this form into the 2023 Canadian Open, posting two comfortable wins already.
With this in mind, what are the best bets to make based on my tennis predictions today? Let me show you right now.
Gauff to Win
In my opinion, Coco Gauff will be the winner of this match. She is playing quite incredible tennis right now, and off the back of a big title, she will be feeling confident. At the same time, while Pegula is also playing well, she hasn’t been quite as consistent or as emphatic as Gauff has been.
Pegula to Win a Set – Yes
While I think that Gauff will win, I believe that Pegula is more than capable of snatching a set. After all, she’s a big hitter of the ball, and this alone means she’s dangerous against any opponent. Furthermore, Pegula did beat Gauff in straight sets last year in Dubai.
Pegula vs Gauff Preview
Of the many quarter-finals listed in the Canadian Open schedule today, this match could well be the best to watch. Yet before it begins, do check out this quick preview for each player:
Jessica Pegula Preview
Let’s be honest – Jessica Pegula isn’t the number 3 player in the world for no reason. She’s feisty, determined, and when she’s playing well, she can beat anyone. Additionally, Pegula destroyed Paolini in the previous round of the Canadian Open, so she will be fresh for this one.
Coco Gauff Preview
Following her title last week, Coco Gauff is now ranked number 7 in the world, which is impressive. At the same time, she’s still just a teenager, so she has plenty of improvements still to come in her career. As for her performances so far in this event, she’s lost just 7 games in two matches, which is rather efficient – to say the least.
Pegula vs Gauff Head to Head
It’s crazy to think that these two have only played each other twice. They are from the same country and both have been top-level professionals for several years. But facts are facts, and the head-to-head record sits at 1-1. In both matches, the result was a straight-set win for either Pegula or Gauff, although Gauff had the most recent win in Eastbourne earlier this season. Then again, Pegula has the only hard-court win!
