Cori Gauff and Barbora Krejcikova meet Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the 2021 tennis French Open.
Cori Gauff is coming off a straight sets win over Ons Jabeur that took 16 games to decide. In the victory, Gauff won 81 percent of her first serve points and 71 percent of her second serve points. Gauff won 78 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her 11 break points. Gauff didn’t face a single break point and had just nine unforced errors in her victory. It was a clean, impressive performance from Gauff and is a sign she may be getting stronger throughout the tournament. Gauff looks to make her first career grand slam semifinal appearance. Gauff has won nine straight matches on clay court.
Barbora Krejcikova is coming off a straight sets win over Sloane Stephens that took 14 games to decide. In the victory, Krejcikova won 82 percent of her first serve points and 56 percent of her second serve points. Krejcikova won 72 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her eight break points. Krejcikova saved all three break points and won the last seven games of the match. Krejcikova has won her last eight sets overall and has also won 11 of her last 12 matches. Krejcikova looks to make her first career grand slam semifinal appearance. Krejcikova has won nine straight matches on clay court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
Krejcikova has the experience edge here and has been the more impressive player when you consider who she’s beaten. However, Gauff has a thing for the big stage and that should help calm the nerves in this matchup. I also worry about Gauff’s power and shotmaking being too much for Krejcikova to counter.
Competitive matchup that could go either way, but I give the edge to Gauff.
