Elena Rybakina vs Linda Noskova – Match Predictions

With Rybakina and Noskova setting their sights on a round of 32 spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Elena Rybakina to Win in Straight Sets

It’s important to point out that just two years ago, Linda Noskova won the French Open Juniors title. She just recently started playing on the WTA Tour, and has put up some remarkable results over the past few months. However, the teenager is going up against one of the best players in the world, who played in two of the last three grand slam finals, winning one of them.

It may interest you to know that Elena Rybakina has two WTA 1000 titles to her name this year; as a matter of fact, she’s coming into this match on the back of seven consecutive victories, and six of those came in straight sets. We have no doubt that Noskova will give her best in order to win this match; however, we are fairly confident that Rybakina will come out on top in straight sets.

Under 19.5 Total Games

Next, let’s take a look at the over/under games market. We’ve already established that Elena Rybakina is currently on a seven-match winning streak. Interestingly, just one of those matches went over 19.5 games (although to be fair, a couple of those matches weren’t completed due to player retirements). Be that as it may, the Kazakhstani has been one of the most dominant players on the tour, and we think she’ll win this match comfortably enough to cover under 19.5 games.

How have these players fared in recent weeks? Let’s take a look at their form heading into this fixture.

Elena Rybakina

Elena Rybakina won the Italian Open crown two weeks ago, her second WTA 1000 title of the year. The Kazakhstani player has enjoyed some fine form lately, winning seven matches in a row. Rybakina will set her sights on a round of 32 spot, and she’ll fancy her chances against Linda Noskova.

Linda Noskova

Linda Noskova kicked off her Roland Garros campaign against Danka Kovinic; her Montenegrin opponent had to retire in the second set due to an injury. This will be a tricky fixture for Noskova, as she takes on an in-form Elena Rybakina; it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against the Kazakhstani.

These players will meet for the first time in their respective careers today. This isn’t much of a surprise, considering Linda Noskova is only 18, and hasn’t been on tour for a long time.
