Linda Noskova vs Coco Gauff – match predictions

As Linda Noskova and Coco Gauff battle for a place in the quarter-final of the Western & Southern Open, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Linda Noskova to cover +4.5 games

Granted, Coco Gauff won the only other encounter between these players in straight sets. However, we’ve been impressed by Linda Noskova’s performances in recent weeks. The 18 year old defeated former World number 2 Petra Kvitova yesterday; she’s coming into this match on the back of four consecutive victories, and has eight wins in her last nine matches. It’s also important to point out that Noskova won at least one set in 17 of her last 19 matches; and for this reason, we believe she’ll do enough to cover +4.5 games today.

At least 21 total games

It may interest you to know that Linda Noskova has been involved in a few three-setters lately; as three of her last four matches ended in maximum sets. Given how well the Czech player has performed in recent weeks, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. On that note, we believe that this match can go all the way to three sets, and that’s why we’re taking the over 20.5 games option.

Linda Noskova vs Coco Gauff preview

Now that we’ve sorted out our Linda Noskova vs Coco Gauff predictions, let’s see how these two have fared in recent weeks.

Linda Noskova

Linda Noskova had to go through the qualifying rounds in order to reach the main draw of the Western and Southern Open; she is currently on a four-match winning streak, with victories over Petra Kvitova and Liudmila Samsonova being the highlights of that streak. Noskova will hope to avenge her Indian Wells Open loss to Coco Gauff as she takes on the American today.

Coco Gauff

On the other hand, Coco Gauff didn’t participate in the first round of this competition, being one of the top eight seeds. The former Roland Garros finalist kicked off her Cincinnati Open campaign with a straight sets victory over Mayar Sherif. Gauff will be eyeing a quarter-final spot, and she’ll fancy her chances against Linda Noskova.
