Belarussian Aryna Sabalenka has been one of the best players this season. She had an exceptional clay court season, where she won the Madrid Open and made it to the final at Stuttgart. On grass, she made it to the semifinal at Wimbledon where she lost to Karolina Pliskova. She also reached the semifinal of the Canadian Open before making it to yet another semifinal at Flushing Meadows.

Paula Badosa has time and again proved this season that she has the ability to clinch the crunch moments and is known for her giant killing abilities. She reached her maiden major quarterfinal at Roland Garros this year and also had a Round of 16 outing at Wimbledon. She then won the biggest title of her career at Indian Wells, which secured her a place for the WTA Finals.

The match will be closely contested and none of the player will start as the favorite. Sabalenka is superior in the rankings but Badosa defeated her just a couple of months back. Badosa’s defense will once again be the key while Sabalenka will trust her hitting power from the baseline. Expect the Spaniard to trouble Sabalenka, but the top seed should power past her.

Prediction: Sabalenka to win in three sets.
