Rybakina to Win 2-0

In addition, 11 consecutive victories, more than half of them in straight sets, carry a lot of weight. Kvitova defeated the Kazakh the last time they faced each other, but since the beginning of the season, Elena has been gradually improving. Therefore, we expect her to become the champion after winning in straight sets.

Set 1: Total Games 9-10

Considering the way Rybakina won her last matches, we expect her to play at her maximum level from the first set. Although Kvitova may pose some challenges for her opponent, we believe the Kazakh will convert one or two break points to win the first set 6-4 or 6-3. These have been the most common results in the sets Rybakina has played so far.

Petra Kvitova
