More importantly, Garcia has been stingy with games, relinquishing no more than six games in her matches. She’s conceding an average of five games per match.

Gauff vs Garcia Prediction
This is a quality quarterfinal matchup with players that are in good form and filled with confidence. By the same token, it’s a tough one to predict for tennis picks.
As the tennis odds suggest, Gauff is the underdog. But her chances of winning are relatively high. Moreover, Gauff will have the advantage of home support as the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium is sure to be behind her. She’s one of two Americans still alive in the tournament.
Garcia is arguably enjoying the best form of all the players on the WTA Tour. She deserves to be the favorite as such, if only ever so slightly.
That said, she must accomplish what she’s never done before to reach the semifinals of the US Open; that’s beat Gauff for the first time. It’s also worth noting that Garcia has never reached a grand slam semifinal. Doing so at the US Open would be a career milestone for the 28-year-old.
All told, bettors could do no worse than backing either Gauff or Garcia for the win. Neither would be a surprise semifinalist, as it so happens. For our money, we’re backing Garcia to continue her incredible run of form.
