Both those matches were three-set affairs.

Gauff Rebounds to Down Mertens

Bageled in the first set, 17-year-old Cori Gauff made an emphatic comeback to down seventh seed Elise Mertens in the first round at Eastbourne on Tuesday.

The Belgian served for the match at 5-4 and 6-5 in the second set, but the gritty American wasn’t ready to give up; she broke Mertens on both the occasions, won the tiebreak and then edged out the World No. 16 in the third for a 0-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5 victory in two hours and 13 minutes.

This is Gauff’s second tour-level event on grass. Her first was at Wimbledon in 2019, where she turned heads with her riveting performances. Qualifying for the tournament at the age of 15 years and three months, Gauff  became the youngest player in the Open Era to reach the main draw at the All England Club.

And she didn’t stop there, going on to defeat Venus Williams, Magdalena Rybarikova and Polona Hercog in the first three rounds before bowing out to Simona Halep in the Round of 16.

Ranked No. 23 in the world, Gauff delivered her best Grand Slam performance at the Roland Garros this year, reaching the quarterfinals without dropping a set, before going down to eventual champion Barbora Krejcikova in straight sets.

Tuesday’s win improved Gauff to 28-10 this year, which saw her claim her second career title by beating China’s Qiang Wang in the Parma final. Gauff had previously won the Linz Open title in 2019.

The American has been very consistent in 2021, as she also reached the semifinals in Adelaide and Rome and the quarterfinals in Dubai and Charleston.

Sevastova Holds Off Kostyuk

Facing Gauff in the next round will be Latvia’s lucky loser Anastasija Sevastova, who defeated Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk in the first round on Tuesday.

The World No. 61 needed an hour and 59 minutes to defeat the Ukrainian 6-1, 6-7 (6-8), 6-4. Sevastova won 78% first-serve points, converted four of five break points and saved the only one she faced in the match to advance to the second round.

It has been a good year for the Latvian, who was 2-10 from all matches in 2020. She is 12-11 from the main draws in 2021.

A former World No. 11, Sevastova had beaten Japan’s Nao Hibino 6-0, 7-6 in the first qualifying round on Saturday but lost the second qualifying round to Christina McHale 6-3, 3-6, 5-7.

The 2018 U.s. Open semifinalist has never gone beyond the second round at Wimbledon but the 31-year-old still has a winning record on grass, thanks to her three finals in Mallorca, where she won the title in 2017 and finished runner-up in 2016 and 2018. Sevastova has four titles from eight finals but hasn’t reached a final since winning the Baltic Open in 2019.

Gauff v Sevastova Prediction and Tip

Gauff will feel a bit of pressure having not beaten Sevastova in their previous two meetings. Expect this to be a good contest with a third set separating the two.
