The bout is predicted to go in favor of Aryna. She has been in fine form and is predicted to win in straight sets. Her form has been good, and she seems to have found more self-belief. Sabalenka’s nervousness during serves seems to have reduced, which has helped to improve her game a lot.

Marta Kostyuk has never won a match against a top-10 player. Kostyuk has lost all 13 of her matches against them. Although in 2021 Kostyuk went further than Sabalenka ever has in the French Open, Kostyuk’s underwhelming form this season gives the edge to Sabalenka.
