It’s crazy to think that Gauff, who turned 18 years old earlier this year, will be playing her 138th tour level match. Though Gauff has struggled to beat the elite players so far in her career, there’s no doubt she’s getting better and better and it’ll be very soon where we will see her winning WTA events more. She won her first ever WTA tournament in 2019 in Linz, where she beat Ostapenko in three sets, at just 15 years old. It took her two more years to grab her second, this time on the clay.
Her serve is improving constantly, with her winning 89.3% on her first serve against Kalilina, her highest ratio in a single match in the last two seasons (thanks Opta!). And her effective backhand is so enjoyable to watch. She’ll be hoping she can win her third WTA title this week in San Jose.
Noami Osaka will be happy with her performance against the in form Zheng Qinwen, winning 6-3 3-6 6-1. That was her first match since May in Roland Garros, and her first win since Madrid. She was serving outstandingly well, collecting 11 aces.
The four time Grandslam champion was on top of her game, but after mental health problems she decided to take a break. The lack of match play will be a worry for her, and after seeing Gauff dismantle Kalilina, she’ll be in for a tough ride.
The pair have faced each other three times, with Osaka having a 2-1 lead. 2019 saw Osaka win in straight sets at the US Open against 15 year old Gauff, but the American got her revenge and beat Osaka in straight sets at the Ausrtalian Open. The most recent match up was last year, where Osaka won in three sets.
Cori Gauff vs. Naomi Osaka Prediction
I do think Gauff has a slightly bigger edge than the bookies suggest, Osaka not having much match play recently is a big factor and it’ll be interesting how she does. With both serving very well, the over also looks nice as well.
