This will be the first meeting between Coco Gauff and Jelena Ostapenko.
15-year-old Gauff is attempting to become the first lucky loser to win a WTA singles title since Olga Danilovic triumphed at the Moscow River Cup last year. Gauff lost to Tamara Korpatsch in the final round of qualifying but has dropped only one set since getting another chance in the main draw.
Gauff had never advanced to a Tour-level quarterfinal prior to this week, but she notched her first WTA quarterfinal, semifinal, and final over the last four days.
The American teenager also claimed her first-ever win over a Top 10 player in the quarterfinals, when she upset top seed and World No.8 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.
By virtue of her run this week, World No.110 Gauff will make her Top 100 debut in the WTA Rankings on Monday and is projected to rise to approximately World No.80 (and just outside the Top 70 if she wins the title).
22-year-old Ostapenko has won two WTA singles titles in her career -- most famously 2017 Roland Garros, when she claimed a maiden Grand Slam title for her first-ever Tour-level singles title. She also won the title in Seoul later that year.
This is her seventh career singles final at Tour level, and her first trip to a final since a runner-up finish at the 2018 Miami Open (lost to Sloane Stephens).
Former World No.5 Ostapenko is currently ranked 72nd in the world, but is projected to rise about nine spots in the rankings with her run to the final, and an additional eight spots into the mid-50s should she claim the crown.
Ostapenko did not drop a set in her first three matches this week, but was pushed to the limit and was forced to save three match points by Ekaterina Alexandrova, last year's Linz runner-up, in the semifinals.
