Magdalena Frech vs Coco Gauff prediction and odds: Australian Open 2024

Magdalena Frech vs Coco Gauff prediction and odds: Australian Open 2024

Following the recent exit of the top seed, Iga Swiatek, some now speculate that Coco Gauff is the favourite for the title. However, she must get past the in-form Magdalena Frech before looking ahead at the Australian Open draw. As for which way this game might swing, I’ve got some predictions for you right here.

Our favourite Magdalena Frech vs Coco Gauff predictions

Coco Gauff is the higher-ranked player here by quite some distance. As the number 4 seed, she’s obviously expected to beat her opponent who is ranked 69 in the world. Yet, in the fourth round of a slam, tensions are usually running high, and the pressure can lead to unexpected outcomes. 

This brings me to my Frech vs Gauff predictions for today:

Over 16.5 games @ 11/20 (1.55)

If you look across all betting markets for this one, the odds are so short for Coco Gauff that it’s necessary to get a little more creative to find ‘value’. This led me to the first prediction – over 16.5 games in total. For this to occur, Frech simply needs to win 5 games, and she is playing well enough to achieve this against Gauff.

Magdalena Frech over 5.5 games @ 10/11 (1.91)

Whenever we create tennis predictions today, I find it useful to provide suggestions that complement one another. This way, you have a shot of winning both wagers. On that note, since Frech only needs to win 5 games for the first market to be a winner, I believe this market is the perfect option to double down on my anticipated outcome.

You’ve now seen my predictions ahead of this match, but how well do you know these two? Let me share some key information.

Magdalena Frech preview

Magdalena Frech has been on the tour for quite some time, and she is currently ranked 69 in the world, which is near her ‘career high’. As for her run in Melbourne so far, she’s taken out a wildcard and a qualifier, as well as the 16th seed, Garcia. So she will no doubt be ready to give it her all against Gauff tonight.

Coco Gauff preview

While Gauff looked a little ‘wobbly’ in her second-round match, she regained her composure and form to produce a routine win in round three. Since this win was so efficient, she will be fresh, confident, and eager to take out Frech to advance to the quarter-finals in Melbourne for the very first time. 

Frech vs Gauff head to head

There is no head-to-head to speak of with respect to Frech vs Gauff. They’ve never faced each other in any WTA event, which makes this one even more interesting.
