Coco Gauff vs Simona Halep: Preview

Coco Gauff

World No. 11 Coco Gauff will take on former World No. 1 Simona Halep in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Canadian Open on Friday. Gauff has been tested for the better part of her campaign in Montreal. Following an easy first-round victory over Madison Brengle, she battled past reigning Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina in the second round. She held four match points in the second set but was pushed to a third set by the Kazakh. The American ultimately held her nerve in the final set tie-break to win the match. Gauff was up against World No. 6 Aryna Sabalenka in the third round. Both players had multiple break-point chances in the opening set, but the teenager claimed the last three games of the set to win it. Gauff then led 4-2 and had three break points to make it 5-2, but some clutch play from Sabalenka denied her that chance. The Belarusian went on to win four games in a row to take the second set and jumped to a 3-0 lead in the deciding set as well. It was then Gauff’s turn to stage a fightback, and she did just that. She took the set to a tie-break and came out on top to win the match 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (4).

On the other hand, Simona Halep After a couple of straight-set wins over Donna Vekic and Zhang Shuai to kickstart her Canadian Open campaign, Simona Halep was up against Jil Teichmann. The Romanian broke her opponent’s serve twice to go 3-0 up in the opening set. Teichmann fought back by winning the next couple of games, but the former World No. 1 took the next three in a row to bag the set. The two were evenly matched for most of the second set. Halep snagged a break in the 11th game to lead 6-5. She had to save a breakpoint in the next game, after which she closed out the match to win 6-2, 7-5.


Halep has beaten Gauff thrice in the three matches they have played against each other
