Coco Gauff vs. Aryna Sabalenka preview
Sabalenka, a 25-year-old from Belarus, is making her first U.S. Open final appearance, though she already has a grand slam title at the 2023 Australian Open. She has dominated in grand slam action this year, posting a 23-2 overall record, and Sabalenka will become the world No. 1 when the new rankings come out next week. Sabalenka was wildly impressive in overcoming an opening set loss to Madison Keys in the semifinal, breaking Keys when serving for the match in the second set and then winning 18 of the next 23 points to gain control of the match. Sabalenka has 13 career singles titles and, in the most recent battle against Gauff in a head-to-head setting at Indian Wells earlier this year, she won in straight sets.
In opposition, Gauff is playing the best tennis of her career. The 19-year-old is the youngest American woman to reach the U.S. Open final since Serena Williams in 1999, and Gauff is making her second grand slam final appearance after losing at the 2022 French Open. The No. 6 seed picked up a straight-set win over No. 10 seed Karolina Muchova on Thursday, and Gauff has won 11 consecutive matches. In fact, she is 17-1 in the last 18 matches overall, including wins at a WTA 500 event in Washington D.C. and a WTA 1000 event in Cincinnati.
