Cori Gauff Preview – Can Gauff can an upset?

Cori Gauff opened her Australian Open campaign with a win over Jil Teichmann.

That was a straightforward victory for the young American, winning in straight sets.

She is going to have a much tougher task ahead of her in the second round as she faces world number five Elina Svitolina.

A win for Cori Gauff in the match outright is a quote of 6/4* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February).

There hasn’t been a tremendous amount of form from Gauff so far in 2021.

Not that there has been a lot of action going on around the world of tennis.

But Gauff was a second-round loser at the Abu Dhabi Open and the Gippsland Trophy this year in singles action.

So that’s about where she is at right now.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February)


This is just the second appearance in the main draw of the Australian Open for Gauff.

On her debut last year she made it to the fourth round of the Grand Slam.

It was a brilliant run that she had last year at Melbourne Park as she beat Venus Williams and defending champion Naomi Osaka along the way.

Gauff’s campaign was ended in the fourth round by eventual winner Sofia Kenin. Gauff is the underdog here.


Elina Svitolina Preview – Big things expected of Svitolina

Elina Svitolina is ranked fifth in the world ranking and she is still on the hunt for her first Grand Slam title.

She opened the eyes with a run to the quarterfinals of the Abu Dhabi Open.

She did have to show some battling qualities along the way there.

But the Ukrainian followed it up with another quarter-final in her next tournament, the Gippsland Trophy.

So there has been plenty of time on the court from Svitolina in comparison to some other players.

It is hard to really get a gauge on anyone in this draw, but Svitolina is quality.

Her best efforts at the Australian Open were quarter-final spots in 2018 and 2019.

The Ukrainian has now been to at least the quarter-finals in four of the last six Grand Slam tournaments played.

So she is a rising threat and Svitolina is the 8/15 odds-on favourite for this match* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February).

Elina Svitolina is capable of a deep run here and while she probably would have been wanting an easier challenge in the second round, we think she gets this.

So it’s worth having a look at the Svitolina 2-0 in set betting at 6/5* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February).

In her opening match at the Australian Open 2021, Svitolina faced Marie Bouzkova.

It was a straight-sets victory there that Svitolina picked up there, settling the match on a tie break.
