Coco Gauff and Ons Jabeur to face-off in a battle between two 2023 French Open quarterfinalists. 

The eighth seed Tunisian Ons Jabeur moved into the French Open 2024 quarterfinals for the second straight year with a straightforward 6-4, 6-4 win over 72nd-ranked Dane Clara Tauson on Court Suzanne Lenglen on Sunday. 

Jabeur, the World No. #9 in the WTA singles Rankings, needed only 95 minutes on court to get past 21-year-old Tauson in their first meeting. The Tunisian is a three-time Grand Slam finalist (2022 Wimbledon, 2022 US Open and 2023 Wimbledon) and has now reached seven career Grand Slam quarterfinals.

Awaiting Jabeur in the quarterfinals is the No. #3 seed and reigning US Open champion, Coco Gauff. The American made it to her fourth straight Roland Garros quarter-final after handing Elisabetta Cocciaretto a 6-1, 6-2 defeat in just 60 minutes. Gauff dropped only four points as she raced to a 5-0 lead in the opening set.

Coco Gauff vs Ons Jabeur preview

Jabeur’s fortunes improved in the 2024 season with the arrival of the European clay court season. The Tunisian lost six of her first eight matches at the beginning of the year but is now 8-3 on clay in the European leg of the tour. She pulled off a quarter-final appearance in Madrid preceding her run in the French Open.

Her resurgent form helped her cut shot Tauson’s career-best Grand Slam run on the WTA Tour. It was the first time these two players were meeting on tour. 

Coco Gauff and Elisabetta Cocciaretto were playing for the second time this year, with the 20-year-old American having defeated Cocciaretto in Dubai. The World No. #3 is now 3-0 against the Italian. Gauff struck 19 winners over the course of the match, to Cocciaretto’s seven winners. Fewer unforced errors came from Gauff’s racket – 15 to 21 by Cocciaretto.

Gauff has eighteen wins at Roland Garros, one more than what Chris Evert managed before turning 21. 

A semi-final showdown with three-time French Open winner Iga Swiatek or the Wimbledon defending champion Marketa Vondrousova, awaits the winner of this tussle between Jabeur and Gauff.

Head-to-head records

Where and how to watch the live streaming and TV broadcast of Coco Gauff vs Ons Jabeur, French Open 2024 quarter-final match in India?

A last-eight clash between Coco Gauff and Ons Jabeur beckons Indian viewers on Monday. Sony Network has broadcast rights for the 2024 French Open in India, and this extends to and includes its streaming service, SonyLiv. Their face-off on Monday will be their seventh career head-to-head.

Prediction

In making the last eight for the seventh time in Roland Garros, Jabeur has equalled Amanda Coetzer’s tally for most appearances among African women in a woman’s singles Grand Slam event in the Open Era. Yet, Jabeur is still looking to shake off the bridesmaid tag since making her tour debut in 2012.

Coco Gauff leads Ons Jabeur 2-1 on clay and 1-0 at Roland Garros. Gauff is on a good streak at 29-8 this season, in contrast to Jabeur’s 10-9. Gauff’s semi-final appearance in the Italian Open is her best from the past three tournaments, while for Jabeur, it is her quarter-final appearance in Madrid.

A win against Jabeur will be an opportunity for Gauff to rekindle her rivalry with Iga Swiatek. The duo last played in the Italian Open semi-final in May where Gauff lost in straight sets.

Jabeur is able to keep a lid on her double faults this season at 20 from 166 service games to Gauff’s 213 from 354 service games. Gauff has won 69.8% of her service games, while Jabeur has taken 63.9% of service games played. Gauff leads Jabeur in percentage of breakpoint conversion – 54% to 45%.

In a battle between two first-time French Open title hopefuls, Gauff has the edge despite Jabeur’s stronger clay court credentials. An upset win cannot be ruled out if Jabeur brings her A-game to the face-off.

Result: Coco Gauff to win in three sets.
