Our favourite Ons Jabeur vs Aryna Sabalenka predictions
The exciting duel between Jabeur and Sabalenka might be a tough one to predict, but we have prepared some betting tips for this match:
Ons Jabeur to win @ 7/5 (2.40)
The Western & Southern Open will see Jabeur and Sabalenka rekindle their rivalry. The Belarusian ace earned a three-set win against Ann Li, before a relatively comfortable victory over Daria Kastkina that lasted 18 games. On the other hand, fortune has been on the side of the Tunisian ace, who is well-rested after Donna Vekic withdrew following her three-set epic against Anhelina Kalinina. Jabeur also won their semi-final meeting at the Championships and with the extra rest afforded, we are backing her to triumph in this meeting.
2-1 to Ons Jabeur @ 17/4 (5.25)
Neither Jabeur nor Sabalenka are one to give up easily and will make it tough for the other to get over the line with ease. Interestingly, both have seen three of their last five matches require a deciding set. This has also been the case in their h2h meetings, where three of their five duels have been three-set affairs. Moreover, Jabeur triumphed in two of these encounters. Based on this, we are backing Jabeur to register another three-set affair.

Can Sabalenka get revenge for the loss in Wimbledon semi-finals to Jabeur?
Now that we have provided you with our Cincinnati Open predictions, let’s take a closer look at the two players and their recent results and form.
Following her Wimbledon final defeat, Jabeur arrived in Cincinnati after a month’s layoff. She showed some court rust in her second-round meeting against Kalinina, who required a deciding set to triumph against her. Fortune smiled on her after that tiring run with Donna Vekic retiring from her third-round defeat, where she was leading 5-2. Jabeur is well-rested ahead of her duel with Sabalenka, whom she defeated in the semi-final at the All England Club.
The Belarusian ace continues to impress with deep runs in competitions. At Wimbledon, Sabalenka was on the wrong end of a resilient performance by Jabeur in the semi-finals. Her return to the court did not go according to the plan with eventual finalist Liudmila Samsonova defeating her in the third round on the Canadian Open. She now is involved in another high-stakes affair as the second seed in Cincinnati and will want to get the right result in her preparations for the US Open.
Jabeur vs Sabalenka head to head
This is the sixth meeting between Jabeur and Sabalenka on the WTA tour. Sabalenka is leading their encounters 3-2 but was on the receiving end of a three-set defeat in the 2023 Wimbledon semi-finals.
