Ekaterina Alexandrova vs Aryna Sabalenka – Match Predictions

As both players set their sights on a quarter-final spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Ekaterina Alexandrova to Win a Set

Aryna Sabalenka is the clear favourite to win this match for obvious reasons. The Belarusian has been one of the top performers on the WTA Tour over the past year; she has reached the most finals, and won the most titles in 2023 (both tied with Iga Swiatek). However, it’s important to point out that Sabalenka lost her last two encounters with Ekaterina Alexandrova; as a matter of fact, these players met on grass last year, and Alexandrova prevailed in straight sets. Keeping in mind that Ekaterina Alexandrova currently leads the head-to-head between these players, we believe she’ll take at least one set from this match.

Less Than 23 Total Games

It’s fair to note that these players previously clashed on five occasions, and all five encounters ended in straight sets. Most importantly, all of those skirmishes featured 20 games or less, with four of them going under 19.5 games. Furthermore, five of Alexandrova’s last six matches went below the 22.5 games line, four of Sabalenka’s last five matches too. All things considered, we are taking the under option for this match.
