Gauff barely survived in the previous round against veteran Petra Martic, winning the match in the decisive tiebreak. Still, the teenager proved that she is mentally strong and will do that once again. Kudermetova has been a tough opponent for Gauff but the American will take her game to another level and win her 14th consecutive match in straight sets.
