This is the first professional face-off between the American Gauff and British Raducanu, who are just 18 and 20 respectively. Yet, they are two of the most promising names on the women's side. 

In 2021, Raducanu won the U.S. Open and became the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since 1977. Gauff has steadily improved her results, reaching her first major singles final at the 2022 French Open. 

This is a marquee match, and it's coming so early in the 2023 Australian Open because Raducanu has struggled somewhat in the past year. She's battled a few minor injuries and split with her coach. Meanwhile, Gauff's ascended the rankings and is one of the favorites to win the year's first Grand Slam.
