Coco Gauff and Dayana Yastremksa will face each other for the second time in 30 days on tour. The American hardly broke a sweat during their previous encounter and will be the favorite to win this bout.

Gauff has made a flawless start to her campaign in Paris this year. She has a dependable record on clay and means business at the French Open. The 20-year-old is known for her feisty groundstrokes and effortless movement on court.

Yastremska, on the contrary, showcased her potential with a brilliant run in the Australian Open. Despite the promising start, she's struggled to reach the second week of any tournament since then. The Ukranian is known for her anticipation skills and resilient all-around game on the court.

Both players will enter the matchup high on confidence. If Yastremska makes a good start and holds her nerve during crucial moments, she could cause problems for Gauff. However, the American is likely to overpower the Ukranian and continue her run in Paris.
