Cori Gauff has picked up form after seeing some early exits in the start of the season. The 17-year old American will play her 5th quarter-final clash at the ongoing Emilia-Romagna Open 2021. She has reached two finals this season, but is yet to reach a final.
She comes to Parma from the Italian Open 2021 in Rome where she reached her second semi-final of the year losing to eventual champion and another teen sensation Iga Swiatek. She also reached the semis at the Adelaide International 2021. She comes into this tie from straight-set victories in the previous rounds.
Amanda Anisimova will make her quarter-final debut of the season after having made some early round exits this year. This tournament is also the first time she makes it past the Round of 32, after having reached that stage on 4 different occasions yet failed to go further into the tournament.
The 19-year old comes into the tie from a Round of 32 defeat at the Italian Open 2021. She sets up this tie with Gauff after winning both of her previous rounds in straight-sets and deservingly makes it to the last-8.

Cori Gauff vs Amanda Anisimova : Prediction
Both of them have a similar record on Clay in their short career so far. Cori is 22-12 whereas Amanda is 33-15 on Clay. However, Cori stands a better chance to open the account in their head-to-head clash looking at her form throughout the season. Nevertheless, it will be an exciting clash between the two youngesters.
Prediction: Cori Gauff to win in 3-sets.
