A tricky encounter is on the cards between Coco Gauff and Julia Avdeeva in the first round of the 2024 French Open. Both players will be determined to chalk up a valuable result in Paris.

Gauff is a fierce competitor and force to be reckoned with on the women's tour. Despite a solid start to the season, she will feel gutted to have not captured more trophies so far. The American is known for her powerful all-around game and splendid athleticism on court.

Avdeeva, on the contrary, has finally gotten the chance to make her main draw debut on the women's tour. She will hope to make a good impression and bring her A-game to the fore against Gauff. The Russian likes to construct her points from the baseline and has a decent all-around game on court.

Ultimately, the player who adapts to the conditions quickly and converts their chances at regular intervals will have the upper hand in this bout. Considering their record on clay and experience at the highest level, Gauff will undoubtedly be the favorite to emerge victorious in the first round.

Pick: Gauff to win in straight sets.
