Rebecca Marino vs Coco Gauff – Match Predictions

1st Set 9-10 Games

Rebecca Marino punched above her waist as she overcame Yulia Putintseva’s challenge. Overcoming Coco Gauff will be a much stiffer assignment given her pedigree. Gauff impressed in the Indian Wells, reaching the quarterfinals where second-ranked Aryna Sabalenka stood in her path. This is their first meeting on the hard court but given Gauff’s pedigree, she should add a second win over Marino. The Canadian should push Gauff in the match and we are expecting the first set to see 9-10 games given Gauff’s history of starting slow.

2-0 to Coco Gauff

Marino had to work hard to get past Putintseva and book her second-round place. Her task has been made more difficult as she stares down the barrel of an inform Gauff. The Canadian will have to make use of all her experience but might come up short against the 19-year-old’s talent. Based on this, we are backing a straight sets victory for the talented Gauff.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the 2023 campaign.

Rebecca Marino

Lin Zhu cut short Rebecca Marino’s stint in the WTA Monterrey at the start of March. At Indian Wells, a similar result was forced on her by Marketa Vondrousova. She did return to winning ways against Yulia Putintseva but seems to have run out of her luck. Marino will have to play outside her skin to get past Gauff, a task difficult for most tennis stars to accomplish.

Coco Gauff

The inability to overcome players ranked in her zone is holding Coco Gauff back. The 19-year-old sensation has gone deep in tournament competition but lacks the experience to get over the line. Jelena Ostapenko knocked her out of the Australian Open, Veronika Kudermetova stood in her way in Doha, Iga Swiatek ended her Dubai run and Aryna Sabalenka caused her downfall in Indian Wells.
