Garcia vs Gauff: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
On October 9, Caroline Garcia will play against Cori Gauff in the second round of Indian Wells tournament. We offer a prediction from our expert for this match.
Since the start of the year Caroline Garcia is playing in many tournaments in an attempt to gain momentum. But so far French player is unable to regain her form. In 49 matches she recorded 25 victories. But some of those victories were recorded in qualification matches.
Garcia started the Indian Wells tournament with a victory over Flipkens (5:7, 6:4, 6:0). It was not an easy match for the Frenchwoman, but her opponent was unable to endure the third set, Belgian player had difficult qualifying matches before that.
After the quarter-final at Montreal Cori Gauff participated only in two tournaments. She reached the second round at Cincinnati and at US Open. At New York Gauff was beaten by Sloane Stephens, who is currently not in the best form (4:6, 2:6).
It was obvious that 17-year old player needed a break. It is hard to predict, how will Gauff perform after some absence. She never played at Indian Wells before.

Cori Gauff is looking better than her opponent in the current season, so she deserved a status of a favourite in this match. But American player was without match practice for a long time, unlike Garcia. We are not expecting a blowout in this match.
