Elina Svitolina vs Coco Gauff Tips & Predictions
One of the most highly-anticipated matches of the 2021 Australian Open so far takes place on Thursday when fifth seed Svitolina comes up against teenage sensation Gauff for a spot in the third round.
Svitolina has established herself as a top 10 mainstay over the last few years, but she continues to struggle with producing her best tennis at the slams. The Ukrainian slips back into old habits when the pressure is on and is susceptible to being blown off the court if she goes into her shell.
Gauff, despite her tender age, is a player who is capable of doing just that. The 16-year-old is no stranger to conjuring upsets at the majors, knocking Venus Williams out of Wimbledon and Naomi Osaka out of the Australian Open before her 16th birthday.
The American is destined for multiple majors over the next decade, but many believe one could be on the horizon over the next couple of seasons. Gauff was impressive in her opening round, defeating Jill Teichmann for the second straight week, while Svitolina survived a tough first round against Marie Bouzkova.
If both players produce their best tennis, this could be a cracking contest. Svitolina has the consistency and base level, while Gauff has the ‘X factor’ and firepower. Who prevails will come down to execution on the day, but either way, I can see this one going the distance.
