Aryna Sabalenka to Win

Their meeting in Miami finished in favour of the Romanian and Sabalenka will look to bring their H2H equation to parity with her powerful game and aggressive style. The world number 2 is difficult to tame on any surface as evidenced by her march to the Stuttgart Open march to start the clay court swing of the tour. She’ll be looking to make a strong statement in the coming days and likely start by overpowering Cirstea and securing a win in their Madrid Open clash

2-0 to Aryna Sabalenka

With her aggressive baseline game and strong mental attitude, Cristea will be a tough opponent for anyone in the draw.
