There are many big stars who are involved in the WTA 1000 of the Italian Open. This has so far been one of the most competitive matches in the tournament. The top players in the rankings are still featuring in the tournament and we as fans are enjoying seeing them play. With the fourth round going on we are now close to seeing who the ones in the playoffs will be. It will be interesting to see who will get their hands on this title.

The 4th round match between Coco Gauff and Paula Badosa is one of the most hyped games that the fans were looking forward to. Both these players have had some great matches in the past as well. While Paula Badosa is on top in terms of the head to head battles, Gauf has been in the form of her life off late. This is definitely a game that was set to be one of the best battles of the tournament.

Coco comes out on top

Though Coco was the highest seeded player in the match, she was still under pressure knowing that Paul Badosa has got 3 wins out of the 4 games against the 2023 US Open champion. We still expected an intense and gruelling battle and that is what we got in the match. The first set saw Badosa come out on top as she broke the final service of the set. The second set saw Coco Gauff win the set under pressure winning 6 games to 4. The match was to be decided in the last and final set. This was where Gauff completely got the better of the Spaniard in the set winning the match and keeping her title chances alive.

This books her place in the quarter finals where she will be playing against Qinwen Zheng tommorow. This was one of the most intense games in the tournament and we all will be looking forward to Coco in the playoffs. This is the match where she has proven why she is one of the top players in the scene. With these performances we can expect Gauff to be one of the favourites to win the tournament going forward.
