Rybakina to Win

Both players have one thing in common and that is that most of their victories have come at this tournament. So far Elena overcame most of them with less trouble than her next opponent. We expect the Kazakh player to have control over Jelena Ostapenko’s game and advance to the final.

Under 22.5 Total Games 

The last time the two players met, Rybakina needed just 18 games to beat Jelena Ostapenko. The Austrian has been performing well in this event, so maybe the match will go a little longer, but we don’t expect it to exceed 22.5 games.

Elena Rybakina 

Once again, the Kazakh tennis player gets a great result against a great rival. As has become customary this season, she comes to the Italian Open Semi finals one of the main favourites to lift the title.

In the previous round, Elena Rybakina faced the world number one for the third time this season. After winning the first set with a big lead and losing the second in a tiebreak, she was ready for an intense third set, but it was not possible to conclude as Iga Swiatek retired due to discomfort that affected her performance.

Jelena Ostapenko

In the previous edition of the Rome Masters, Ostapenko did not win a single match and was knocked out in the second round. This time the Austrian tennis player had a great performance to reach the semi-finals of one of the most important clay court tournaments of the season.

From the second round to the quarter-finals, Ostapenko faced tough opponents who were even favourites to defeat her. In the previous round, she needed to defeat Paula Badosa.

The Austrian tennis player dominates the series with two wins, however, the Kazakh player won the most recent duel when she just started this season, ousting her rival in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open. The first time the two have met on clay.
