Whatever the outcome, Katie Boulter’s victory in the opening round of the National Bank Open will boost her ranking significantly. The next step for the British tennis player is to overcome Coco Gauff and demonstrate that she can compete with the best players in the world.

Gauff to Win 2-0
The first time the two players met, the game was quite close. Katie Boulter’s triumph was determined by her experience, while Cori was just beginning her professional tennis career.
The progress of the American player has been spectacular since then. Despite her recent success, I doubt Boulter can win even one set against Coco Gauff in her first match.
Under 19.5 Total Games
One of the most intriguing aspects of Gauff’s recent title triumph in Washington is that none of the duels lasted more than 18.5 games. In fact, nine of the past ten matchups he played finished in straight sets with fewer than 20 games. This element, I believe, will be replicated, and we will witness fewer than 19.5 games.
Katie Boulter vs Coco Gauff Preview
This and other Canadian Open predictions are supported by a useful Katie Boulter vs Coco Gauff preview.
The British player continues to rise in the WTA rankings. Katie Boulter had three straight victories, all in straight sets, after two qualifying matches for the Montreal Open and the first round.
Boulter’s previous opponent was Canadian Rebecca Marino, who, although being a local player, was unable to grasp her opponent’s game. Katie needed only 1 hour and 5 minutes to convert four breakpoints to win.
The American player has just lifted the Citi Open title after defeating world number 8 Maria Sakkari in the final. This was the second title for the 19-year-old, who also won in Auckland.
So far this has been the best year in Cori Gauff’s short professional career. Her performance on clay and grass was not very spectacular, but now she is back to playing on hardcourt, where we usually see her best version.
Boulter vs Gauff Head to Head
The two athletes’ first and only meeting occurred two years ago. Coco, who was 16 years old at the time, astonished Boulter by winning the opening set.
In the second, the duel took a big turn. The 27-year-old brought her experience to bear and turned the score around.
