Women's US Open final live stream: Gauff vs Sabalenka preview

Nineteen-year-old Coco Gauff carries the hopes of a nation as she faces Aryna Sabalenka in the 2023 US Open women's final. The American received a rapturous reception when she stepped out onto Arthur Ashe Court just now, while the crowd's reaction to Sabalenka was... muted, to put things politely. Play is about to get underway. 

Gauff is into her second grand slam final, while Sabalenka, who'll rise to world No.1 in the coming days, is hunting her second major title of this year. 

The duo look tantalisingly well-matched, though they've taken very different paths to the final. Gauff was in full-blown crisis mode as recently as July, but with the hard-court swing came the twin milestones of her maiden WTA 500 and WTA 1000 singles titles. Her patchy early form at Flushing Meadows sparked suggestions that the pressure was getting to her, but she sailed past Jelena Ostapenko and Karolina Muchova in the last two rounds.

Sabalenka, meanwhile, has been far and away the most consistently excellent player on the WTA in 2023, so much so that a single grand slam title, secured in Melbourne at the start of the year, would feel like an underwhelming return. The 25-year-old didn't drop a set through the first five rounds, but Madison Keys took her to the brink in their enthralling semi-final clash. After being shut out in the first set and facing a match point, the Belarusian showed tremendous fighting spirit to bend the match to her will.

Gauff leads their head-to-head 3-2, though Sabalenka got the better of their only meeting this season, at Indian Wells in March. Read on and we'll show you how to watch a Gauff vs Sabalenka live stream in this US Open 2023 final for free online.
