Badosa Hobbles Past Mandlik

While she was returning from a a month-long break of having not played since her fourth round appearance at Wimbledon, Badosa would have been expected to do a lot better than she did in her second round match against Elizabeth Mandlik.

Coming up against a player ranked 240th in the world, Badosa needed a final set tie-breaker and two hours and 33 minutes to finally win the match.

Badosa overcame two Mandlik opportunities to serve for the match before moving into the last eight stage with a 6-2, 5-7, 7-6 (5) victory.

Things looked to be headed to plan for the 1/5 favourite when Badosa shrugged off an early break of serve to break her opponent three times in four games and grab the first set.

In a stunning turn of events, however, Badosa was broken in the 11th game of the second set and then saw Mandlik get chances to serve it out at 4-5 and 5-6 in the final set. A fighting Badosa broke back each time before taking the match in the tie-breaker.

She will need to do a lot better against an in-form Gauff here.

Gauff Quells Osaka Comeback

Gauff lived up to her favourite billing in her second round match against multiple-time Grand Slam winner Naomi Osaka but had to then stall her opponent’s comeback to complete a straight-set win.

The American, who had reached the final of the French Open earlier this year, overcame Osaka 6-4, 6-4 in an hour and 29 minutes to move into the quarterfinals.

Having earlier crushed Anhelina Kalinina 6-1, 6-1, Gauff built up a 6-4, 5-1 lead against Osaka and then had three match-points off her opponent’s serve. Osaka fought back to not just win that game but also broke Gauff and held again to push it to 5-4.

Gauff, who had frittered away seven match-points by this time, then served it out in the 10th game to clinch the victory.

Badosa v Gauff Prediction and Tip
