Coco Gauff vs. Barbora Krejcikova preview
Mair has tracked the rise of both players, who are coming off singles titles in warm-up events leading into the Open. Gauff, 17, is already entering her third year of women's competition with a pair of titles and a ranking of No. 25. Krejcikova, 25, is a seasoned veteran, making her WTA Tour debut in 2014, and is ranked No. 33.
Krejcikova has been busy this year, and reached the final of a WTA 1000 event for the first time. She later teamed up with Katerina Siniakova to win a doubles title at the Madrid Open and followed that up with a women's singles title at the Internationaux de Strasbourg. She defeated Sorana Cirstea in the final.
The tennis expert knows Krejcikova's baseline style has allowed her to be a bully on the court and that was evident in the past two rounds of the French Open 2021. In the third round, she clobbered Elina Svitolina 6-3, 6-2. She followed that up with a tidy 67-minute win over Stephens.
Gauff has been dominant in the tournament and Mair sees her being able to go toe-to-toe with Krejcikova. Gauff defeated Aleksandra Krunic and Wang Qiang before receiving a walkover over 13th-seeded Jennifer Brady. She then needed just 53 minutes to defeat Ons Jabeur to reach the quarterfinals.
