The talented teenager Gauff caused a sensation in Melbourne last year by beating Naomi Osaka in the third round after Venus Williams in the first round. She eventually lost in the fourth round. In 2019 she also reached this far at Wimbledon, where she broke through a year and a half ago.
A new high-profile victory was not possible this time for the 16-year-old number 48 in the world. She never won the service game of Svitolina and gave up her own service once in both sets.
Ten years her senior Svitolina is aiming for her first grand slam final at the Australian Open. In Melbourne she reached the last eight twice, at Wimbledon and the US Open she already reached the semi-finals.
