Aryna Sabalenka to Win in Three Sets

Barbora Krejcikova has been one of the biggest threats in both singles and doubles these past couple of years. She has 10 wins in her last 11 singles matches across all competitions. Interestingly, her only loss in that stretch came against Aryna Sabalenka.

As a matter of fact, Krejcikova tends to struggle against the current World number 2; she suffered three losses in four meetings between these players. Keeping in mind that three of four previous clashes between these players ended in three sets, we are fairly confident that Sabalenka will come out on top in maximum sets.

Over 21.5 Total Games

We’ve pointed out that Krejcikova lost just once in her last 11 singles matches. It’s also important to note that Aryna Sabalenka has been one of the toughest players to beat this season. The Belarusian has lost just two matches this year; she reached three finals in 2023, winning two titles. That said, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. Considering three of four previous skirmishes between these players went comfortably over 21.5 games, we are taking the over option here.
