Madison Keys vs Coco Gauff – Match Predictions

Coco Gauff to Win

With their contrasting styles and shared determination, this matchup guarantees an intense battle on the grass courts. As the 19-year-old accrues experience, she is becoming difficult to tame on the pitch and it will be a difficult issue for Keys. While Keys has experience on her side but has come up short against Gauff in their last two meetings. With Gauff only dropping 13 games in her three outings, she has been ruthless against her rivals and should manage to register yet another win against Keys.

2-1 to Coco Gauff

While Gauff has been in sublime form at Eastbourne International, Keys has not been a slouch. She has registered straight-set victories and will not bow down easily. The WTA 25-ranked star was about to force a tiebreaker in their last meeting but lost her nerve in the end. She came from 0-3 down against Petra Martic and should be more resourceful this time around. We expect Keys to claim a set against Gauff but the youngster’s skill and power should her to make their H2H record 3-1 in her favour in the end.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Eastbourne International.

Madison Keys

Keys suffered a second-round exit at Roland Garros and will be aiming to turn the tables on the grass court swing. Preferring to play at the Eastbourne rather than moving around Europe, he strategy seems to have worked. She has impressed with three successive 2-0 wins, the most recent of which saw her brush Petra Martic’s challenge with ease.

Coco Gauff

The American teenager continues to impress with every outing on the court. After an early ousting from Berlin Open, she did not waste any time and got acclimatized for the Eastbourne International. From Bernarda Pera to Jessica Pegula have tried and come up short of her explosive serve. She will fancy her chances of silverware here but has a couple of hurdles to overcome.
