The China Open quarterfinals promise fireworks as Maria Sakkari and Coco Gauff, both on impressive winning streaks, prepare to go head-to-head in a battle of determination and skill.

Our favourite Maria Sakkari vs Coco Gauff – match predictions

Sakkari got the better of Xinyu Wang in the last round in three sets. She will have to give a better account of her abilities in the quarter-final against Gauff who got the better of Veronika Kudermetova in straight sets.

Maria Sakkari to win @ 17/10 (2.70)

After her success in Flushing Meadows, Coco took a month off but Sakkari was busy on the tour, securing title success in Guadalajara before travelling to Japan. The Greek ace boasts off a 4-2 record against the 19-year-old Gauff and showcased her resilient side against Xinyu Wang to triumph in the three-setter. She has the momentum on her side and should end Gauff’s 15-match winning spree.

Over 22.5 Games @ 23/20 (2.15)

Add either of Gauff or Sakkari to a match equation and you get marathon duel on your hands. Neither starlet likes to roll over and have displayed their dogged side in recent outings. Sakkari’s last match lasted 27 games and we believe she will have to give another tireless display to overcome the US Open champion. Gauff too was involved in a 37-game marathon against Petra Martic and will not give-up without a fight. Based on this, we expect a long duel, one that sees more than 22.5 games to find a victor.

According to most bookies, Gauff is the clear favourite tennis with a 67.6% chance of winning. However, it is Sakkari who holds the advantage in their H2H battles and has an outside chance of beating the American teenage with a 37% implied probability of winning.
