- 3 Key match details
Injury threatened Rybakina caught a lucky break as Australian Ajla Tomljanovic had to retire from the US Open. With greater time to recoup, she will be looking to get the better of the resurgent Cirstea who has two straight-set victories to boast about.
2-0 to Elena Rybakina @ 83/100 (1.83)
It has been three years since the last time Rybakina and Cirstea met on the court. While the Romanian star has solidified herself as a top-30 contender, Rybakina has made leaps and bounds and is currently ranked 4th in the world. The Kazakh defeated Cirstea 2-1 at the first time of asking and 2-0 in their next meeting. She was afforded extra time off with Tomljanovic and should finish the job with ease. Expect a 2-0 dismantling by Elena as Sorana’s US Open adventures come to a conclusion.
Under 20.5 Games @ 107/100 (2.07)
Sorana has impressed in her outings against lower-ranked Kayla Day and Anna Kalinskaya. She was efficient in her outings, and finished the job in 17 and 19 games, respectively. In her only outing of the US Open, Elena dominated 39-ranked Marta Kostyuk in 15 games. A well-rested Rybakina is a dangerous proposition for Cirstea, who is a step up in competition for the Romanian ace. Due to this, we are anticipating an early conclusion within 20.5 games to this duel.
