Match Predict – Handicap (-2.5) for Rybakina
Rybakina defeated Azarenka (6-3, 6-4) on the hard court in Indian Wells last season. In Melbourne, Elena has clearly reached the peak of her form, acting very reliably on her serve, going through a difficult tournament net, and knocking out the world #1. Victoria, of course, also impresses with her results, but she does not have a stable serve. Perhaps, it is this component, in our opinion, that will be decisive today.
Total Games Under 23
In only one of the five matches played in Melbourne did Rybakina play three sets. In their only head-to-head encounter, the opponents played only 19 games. We’re counting on the prediction that there won’t be a prolonged match today.
