Rybakina vs Sabalenka: prediction for the Australian Open match
Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka exchanged sets in all head-to-head matches. What to expect from the Australian Open final on January 28? The answer is in our prediction.
One year ago, Elena Rybakina won the Wimbledon tournament and now she has a chance for a second Grand Slam title. Kazakh player was not so impressive in pre-Slam tournaments, but she put up a fantastic performance in Melbourne.
Rybakina lost only one set on her way to the final. It happened in the third round match against Danielle Collins (6:2, 5:7, 6:2).
In the round of 16, Elena secured a 6:4, 6:4 victory over Iga Swiatek, World No. 1 player. In the quarter-final, Rybakina managed to beat Ostapenko (6:2, 6:4). There were some difficulties in the first set of the semi-final match against Azarenka, but Rybakina managed to get past the opponent (7:6, 6:3).
Prior to Australian Open, Aryna Sabalenka gained fantastic form, winning the title at Adelaide. Before the start of Melbourne competition, Belarusian player was considered one of the biggest favorites and she didn't disappoint.
Aryna managed to beat all of her opponents in straight sets. Her winning streak has reached 10 matches. In the semi-final Sabalenka secured a victory over Linette (7:6, 6:2). Before that, she managed to beat Martincova, Rogers, Mertens, Bencic and Vekic.
Aryna is always aggressive, she is not afraid of taking the risk and taking initiative into her own risk. That strategy is pretty successful for her.
