Laura Siegemund vs Coco Gauff – match predictions

As Laura Siegemund and Coco Gauff set their sights on a place in the second round of the US Open, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Laura Siegemund to cover +6.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Granted, Coco Gauff has enjoyed some fine form lately; she’s coming into this match on the back of a five-match winning streak, having won her first career WTA 1000 title at Cincinnati two weeks ago. However, Laura Siegemund is coming into this match with a ton of confidence; as she has won three in a row, and seven of her last nine singles matches. Keeping in mind that the German player came out on top the only other time these players met, we believe she’ll do enough to cover +6.5 games.

Over 18.5 total games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Next, let’s explore the over/under games market. It’s worth mentioning that the over/under games line is currently set at 18.5, which is a little low in our opinion. For one, both players are high on morale ahead of this match, so we think this will be tighter than it looks on paper. That said, this match could end in straight sets, and still go comfortably over 19 games. All things considered, we are taking the over option for this match.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.

Can Laura Siegemund pull off a huge upset today?

Now that we’ve sorted out our predictions for this match, let’s see how these players fared in the weeks leading up to this competition.

Laura Siegemund

Laura Siegemund went through the qualifying rounds of this tournament, where she defeated Nuria Brancaccio, Simona Waltert and Oceane Dodin. Compared to these players however, Coco Gauff will be a relatively tougher nut to crack; it’ll be interesting to see how Siegemund will match-up against her American opponent.

Coco Gauff

On the other hand, Coco Gauff is the number six seed, and didn’t have to participate in the qualifying rounds. The American is fresh off a Cincinnati Open title; she has won five in a row, with four of those coming in straight sets. Gauff will fancy her chances against Siegemund today.

Siegemund vs Gauff head to head

This will be the second encounter between Laura Siegemund and Coco Gauff. These players previously met at the Auckland Open three years ago, and Laura Siegemund won in three sets. To be fair, Gauff was only 16 at the time, so it’ll be interesting to see how this match pans out.
