Local girl Ash Barty will return to Australian courts for the first since 2021 and returns home as the World No. 1. After her 3rd consecutive year-finish as the World No. 1, Barty is on the lookout for her first-ever Australian Open title. The 25-year old had a bye in the first round and was placed directly in the 2nd round as she prepares for the Grand Slam that begins in a fortnight.

Coco Gauff returns to action with a comprehensive win as she defeats Ulrikke Eikeri in the first round. The American teenager won the match 6-2, 6-1 to kick her season with a fantastic dominant performance. Gauff continues her wait for the first title on outdoor hardcourts having won a title each on Clay and indoor hardcourts.

This will be the second meeting between the duo, having last met in the quarter-finals of the 2021 Italian Open. The match was however not completed as Barty was forced to withdraw from the match despite leading in the scorecard. Gauff leads the head-to-head tie 1-0.

Ash will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 156-51 and was 21-4 on the surface last season while she finished the 2021 season with a record of 42-8 across all surfaces. Coco will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 37-23 and was 16-10 on the surface last season and had a 36-16 record for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2021 season, Barty looks the winner but it won’t be a cakewalk as Gauff was fantastic in the first match and can give the World No. 1 a run for her money.

Match Prediction: Ash Barty to win in 3-sets.
