Her best performance of the year was at the Serbian Open, where she reached the final where she had to, unfortunately, retire through injury to hand the title to Paula Badosa. The Ukrainian is coming off a victory against Marketa Vondrousova in the previous round.

Coco Gauff vs Ana Konjuh: Match Predictions
With no head-to-head record between them, the match would be a very interesting one as both parties would want to claim that first victory. While Coco Gauff is a tempo player and loves long rallies, Ana Konjuh is a very aggressive player who has a lovely backhand and serve. Gauff would undoubtedly be the heavy favourite for the clash owing to her steady improvement over the past years current form and her high potential. However, despite being the underdog, Konjuh should not be taken lightly as the 23-year-old would look to pack a punch.
Match Prediction- Gauff to win in 3 sets.
