Shelby Rogers vs Aryna Sabalenka – Match Predictions

With Shelby Rogers and Aryna Sabalenka battling for supremacy, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Aryna Sabalenka to win in Straight Sets

Granted, Shelby Rogers has held her own against some tough opponents in the past; but it’s worth mentioning that she usually folds against some of the top players on the WTA Tour. As a matter of fact, the American has lost all of her last eight clashes with players ranked in the top 25 of the WTA rankings. The last time she defeated a top 25 player was in August last year.

Interestingly, Rogers has faced Aryna Sabalenka three times in the last 10 months alone, and she lost all of those clashes, winning just one set. Bearing in mind that Sabalenka has 17 wins across 19 matches this year, we believe the Belarusian will come out on top in straight sets.

Shelby Rogers to Cover +5.5 Games

Although we’ve established that we expect Sabalenka to win this match in straight sets, we don’t think this match will be as one-sided as the odds suggest. Shelby Rogers is coming off three consecutive three-setters, and she faced players like Maria Sakkari and Sloane Stephens. The American should be able to win up to seven games in this match.

Shelby Rogers vs Aryna Sabalenka Preview

Now that we’ve sorted out our Shelby Rogers vs Aryna Sabalenka predictions, let’s see how these players have fared in recent months.

Shelby Rogers

Shelby Rogers faced compatriot Sloane Stephens in the first round of this tournament. She was efficient when it mattered, converting three of three break points in a three sets victory. Compared to her previous opponent however, Aryna Sabalenka will be a relatively tougher nut to crack. Can the American player pull off an upset against one of the best players in the world?

Aryna Sabalenka

On the other hand, Aryna Sabalenka is coming off a disappointing straight sets loss at the final of the BNP Paribas Open. She’s currently the highest seeded player in this tournament, and so did not feature in the first round. The Belarusian has enjoyed some fine form, and she will look to continue her impressive run with a win today.
