Mayar Sherif vs Coco Gauff – match predictions

2-1 to Coco Gauff

After losing three matches in succession, Sherif triumphed against Wang Xiyu. Despite not being at her best and being forced into two tiebreakers, the Egyptian ace will be proud of showcasing her abilities in clutch moments and taking the first-round victory. Gauff will be wary of her as Jessica Pegula revealed her deficiencies when taken into extra time in Montreal. Sherif will likely adopt a similar strategy. While the extended number of matches played by Gauff will take a toll on her, we believe she should have enough in the tank despite accruing a set to her rival. Based on this, we are backing a 2-1 triumph for the American teenager.

Over 19.5 Games

Gauff’s last match saw 32 games played in her eventual quarter-final ousting. On the other hand, Sherif’s recent victory over Wang came in 36 games. The duo showcased in those games their unnerving never say die attitude and we expect more of the same in this meeting. Like the number of games seen in their most recent outings, we expect this match to see an extended number of games with a victor found in Over 19.5 Games.

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

Mayar Sherif

Mayar Sherif’s journey to the second round of the Cincinnati Open reflects her resilience and determination. While her hard court performance this year may not have been exceptional, her thrilling victory over Wang Xiyu demonstrated her ability to battle through challenging situations. Sherif’s dominant performances on clay, including two 125K titles and a WTA 1000 quarterfinal, highlight her skills on that surface, and she will look to translate that success to the hard courts.

Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff’s recent form is nothing short of remarkable, as she enters the Cincinnati Open brimming with confidence. She saw her commanding six-match winning streak come to an end against Jessica Pegula in Montreal after her memorable home title win in Washington, illustrating her ability to excel on the biggest stages. Gauff’s consistent quarterfinal-or-better achievements this season, with two titles to her name, underline her hunger for success as she sets her sights on a potential deep run in Cincinnati.
