Upcoming Match vs Sabalenka – Elena Rybakina Australian Open 2023

With her win over Victoria Azarenka, Elena Rybakina set up a mouthwatering clash with another Belarusian player in the final.  She previously met Aryna Sabalenka four times, including exhibition matches. While the Belarusian leads the head-to-head between these players, it’s worth mentioning that Rybakina came out on top the last time they met. Keeping that in mind, it’ll be interesting to see how Elena Rybakina will fare against Sabalenka.

Elena Rybakina’s Performance At Australian Open in the Past

It’s worth mentioning that Elena Rybakina hasn’t fared too well in this competition in the past. Prior to the 2023 Australian Open, the 23 year old’s best result in this tournament was a third round finish in 2020, where she lost to Ashleigh Barty. Interestingly, Rybakina crashed out of the previous two editions of this tournament in the second round.

Elena Rybakina Australian Open 2023 Prediction – Runner Up

Elena Rybakina has looked really good in this tournament. The former Wimbledon champion has surrendered just one set across six matches so far, defeating players like Iga Swiatek, Victoria Azarenka, Danielle Collins and Jelena Ostapenko.

However, this will be a tricky fixture for the Kazakhstani, as she goes up against an in-form Aryna Sabalenka. The Belarusian has a perfect record in 2023, with 10 wins from 10. As a matter of fact, she’s a perfect 20 out of 20 in sets this year. Taking everything into account, although we believe Rybakina will give Aryna Sabalenka a run for her money, the Belarusian should win this match.
