Elena Rybakina vs Ajla Tomljanovic prediction and odds: US Open 2023

Ajla Tomljanovic’s comeback was successful, as she won her maiden title at the Uso Open 2023. Elena Ribakina will attempt to defend her Wimbledon title in New York in order to remain on the WTA rankings podium.

Our favourite Elena Rybakina vs Ajla Tomljanovic predictions

Take a look at today’s tennis prediction and analysis of the US Open’s first round.

Under 19.5 games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Tomljanovic’s lack of rhythm will work against her, but even more so against Rybakina, who has risen to the top of the women’s tennis rankings in less than a year. Elena already performed admirably in the first round.

Rybakina’s last match lasted an hour, and there were 15 games in total. This duel may last a little longer, but I expect it to be over in less than 19.5 games.

First set: over 8.5 games @ 4/7 (1.57)

To get an advantage in the first set, the Australian tennis star will have to give his all. Otherwise, I don’t think she’ll be able to lower the score.

Although Rybakina is certain to win, I don’t believe it will be as simple as her previous encounter. The Kazakh may convert one or two breakpoints, but there will be more than 8.5 games.

Rybakina vs Tomljanovic: the first major test for the recently returned Australian player

An exciting match is scheduled for the second round of the year’s final Grand Slam. Let’s look at each player’s preview to see if we can back up our previous WTA US Open predictions.

Elena Rybakina 

Elena Rybakina’s loss to Clara Burela in the previous year’s first round was one of the surprises. It was a letdown for the Kazakh star, who had just won Wimbledon.

Rybakina dropped a few spots in the WTA rankings after failing to defend her title in London. She will, however, be able to bounce back at this year’s US Open. Marta Kostyuk was knocked out in straight sets in the first round.

Ajla Tomljanovic

One advantage to playing against the Australian tennis star is that it will be only her second match of the year. Tomljanovic underwent surgery after suffering a significant knee injury that kept her out for over a year.

In her previous encounter, she lost the first set to Panna Udvardy, but Ajla demonstrated that she did not return to be ashamed. The 30-year-old dominated the final two sets.

Rybakina vs Tomljanovic Head to Head

The Kazakhstani tennis star recalls warmly her last encounter against Ajla Tomljanovic, which was one of the challenges she overcame to become Wimbledon 2022 champion. It was their second meeting, and Elena Rybakina came out on top both times. They have previously met on clay and grass, but this will be their first meeting on hardcourt.

06/07/22 Rybakina beat Tomljanovic 4-6 6-2 6-3 (Wimbledon, grass)

30/04/21 Rybakina beat Tomljanovic 6-4 6-0 (Madrid, clay)
