Aryna Sabalenka vs Rebecca Marino: Preview
Sabalenka comes into this match after surviving a three-set battle in the previous round against American Sloane Stephens. The Belarusian has put together some fine results in 2021 till now. She even reached her maiden Wimbledon semifinals recently, before Karolina Pliskova stopped her run. On the clay too, Sabalenka won the title in Madrid and also reached the finals of Stuttgart. The 23-year-old also kicked off the season with an impressive title win in Abu Dhabi on the hard courts. The top-seed will once again be keen to make an impact this week in Montreal, as she prepares for the final Grand Slam of the year in New York.
On the other hand, Mirano comes into this contest after stunning Paula Badosa of Spain in three sets in the previous round. She also beat American Madison Keys in the opening round in Montreal. The Canadian has been playing most of her matches in the lower-ranked tournaments. Nonetheless, two big wins on the hard court this week would have given the 30-year-old enough confidence to take on the No.3 player in the world.

Aryna Sabalenka vs Rebecca Marino: Prediction
While Rebecca Marino will walk onto the court with confidence, Sabalenka will be a very tough proposition to deal with. The Belarusian will stick to dictating play from the baseline and will also serve big at regular intervals. While the Canadian might try to upset the rhythm of the top seed, it is tough to see Sabalenka not getting the job done in straight sets.
Match Prediction: Aryna Sabalenka should win in two sets.
