Coco Gauff’s next match: Opponent, venue, live streaming, TV channel and schedule

Must read

World No. 3 Coco Gauff begins her Madrid Open campaign against Arantxa Rus in the second round.

Gauff has compiled a 19-6 record this year. She performed well during the hardcourt phase of the season, winning the title in Auckland and reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open and Indian Wells.

Gauff’s clay swing got underway in Stuttgart at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. After a first-round bye, she sneaked past Sachia Vickery in three sets to reach the quarterfinals, where she was shown the door by Marta Kostyuk in three sets.

Gauff has a chance to become the new World No. 2 if she outperforms Aryna Sabalenka in Madrid. With her sights set on attaining a new career milestone, the young American will be keen to perform well in the Spanish capital.

Where is Coco Gauff playing?

Gauff is participating in the Madrid Open, which is the season’s fifth WTA 1000 tournament. Her record at the venue in singles isn’t particularly impressive, as she’s yet to make it past the third round.

However, Gauff has performed well in doubles. She reached the quarterfinals in 2022, and along with Jessica Pegula, made the final last year, losing to Victoria Azarenka and Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-1, 6-4.

This will be the first career meeting between Gauff and Rus, who has a 1-2 record in Madrid. She recorded her only win last year, beating Amanda Anisimova in the first round.
