15-year-old Corey Gauff became the author of one of the most high-profile sensations in the current Australian Open. In the third round, the tennis player defeated last year’s tournament winner Naomi Osaka (6-3, 6-4). Before that, Venus Williams (7-6, 6-3) and Kirstu (4-6, 6-3, 7-5) went through more intense matches.
In the match against Osaka, we note that the Japanese tennis player was not like herself, there was no noticeable serious desire to fight. Corey Gauff completed the match only six winners, making 17 unforced errors. I tried to play simply, I did not risk. This brought success, but it is not worth overestimating such a resounding victory.
Sofia Kenin tournament bracket was somewhat simpler, although in the third round I had to play against Zhang Shuai (7-5, 7-6), who showed excellent performance in the pre-helmet tournaments.
The victory over Zhang Shuai turned out to be a labor one. The rival in the course of the first set had an advantage, but did not hold back, did not realize four set points. In the second installment, Kenin played again more confidently on decisive goals.

Coco Gauff vs Sofia Kenin Game Prediction
The victory over Osaka decently influenced the line of bookmakers and odds. The victory of Kenin is estimated at quotes at 1.70.
Meanwhile, we can’t say for sure that Gauff had a great match against Osaka. Before that, the tennis player had serious problems in the second round match. Kenin is able to play powerfully, Sophia’s tight punches will cause many problems for Gauff. The factor of psychology can also affect. Still, at 15, playing at such a serious level is not easy. We offer a forecast for the victory of Sofia.
Our prediction is the victory of Sofia Kenin
