Defending champion Naomi Osaka has a tricky opponent on her hands when she meets Cori “Coco” Gauff in the Australian Open third round. Join The Roar for live scores of the match from 7pm (AEDT).
At just 16, Gauff is the youngest player in the top 100 players on the women’s circuit. Having already knocked out Venus Williams and Sorana Cirstea, she might be capable of springing an upset against Osaka. However, the Japanese third seed is in good form, winning both her games 6-2, 6-4.
These two have met once before, at last year’s US Open, a match which Osaka won in straight sets.
