It’s crazy to think we’ve already arrived at the quarter-final stage of the 2024 Australian Open. Of course, the Australian Open schedule will only get more intense from this point onwards, and I expect this match of Kostyuk vs Gauff will produce some fireworks. As for my predictions, read on for full details.

It goes without saying that Marta Kostyuk was not expected to reach the quarter-finals. However, Coco Gauff certainly was. In fact, she should reach at least the semi-finals based on the Australian Open seeds this year. But she will need to beat Marta Kostyuk to make this happen.
With that said, here are my Kostyuk vs Gauff predictions for this quarter-final clash:
Coco Gauff to win 2-0 @ 4/9 (1.44)
Coco Gauff hasn’t been in the mood to mess around on the court in this tournament. She’s been rather ruthless in the last two rounds, dropping just 5 games in total in 4 sets. And given that Kostyuk is ranked 37 in the world, I can see Gauff dispatching her quite comfortably.
Coco Gauff -5.5 games handicap @ 4/6 (1.67)
Assuming Gauff produces the level of tennis that she has in her last two matches, a straight-sets win is certainly on the cards. Adding to that, I believe that she can take out Marta Kostyuk with a minimal loss of games, hence my chosen market here. Yet for this to happen, if Gauff wins in straight sets, she must do so while losing fewer than 6 games.
Marta Kostyuk vs Coco Gauff odds
Gauff is heavily favoured to win this one, with a probability of 90%. As for the chance for Kostyuk to win, this is 15.40%.
Kostyuk facing the end of the line against Gauff
Do you know how these two have performed recently? Let me share this information to add to the tennis predictions today, as mentioned above.
Marta Kostyuk preview
Quite incredibly, Marta Kostyuk has won 3 three-set matches in this event so far. Yet she was more efficient in the fourth round against Timofeeva, beating the qualifier in straight sets. As for her results, she’s beaten just one seed en route to the quarters, and this was the 25 seed, Mertens.
Coco Gauff preview
Since Gauff is the number 4 seed, she hasn’t faced a single seed to reach the quarter-finals. As for her performances, while she had a tight contest with Dolehide in the second round, she’s been flawless so far. In fact, she has yet to drop a set, and she has lost more than 3 games in just one of the 8 sets she’s played.
Kostyuk vs Gauff head to head
These two have played each other before, and this was back in 2022. In that match, it was Coco Gauff who came out on top in a three-set contest. Interestingly, this match took place in Australia, but Gauff is a totally different player than she was back then, so it could well be 2-0 for Gauff once this one is over.
