Iga Swiatek vs Elena Rybakina Head-to-Head:
Swiatek and Rybakina have faced only once so far in a professional court. At the 2021 Ostrava Open Swiatek took the win from Rybakina with a 7-6(5), 6-2 score.
Iga Swiatek vs Elena Rybakina Prediction:
Both Swiatek and Rybakina had a stellar season so far. Therefore, fans are expecting an exciting face off in the court among the two reigning Grand Slam champions.
The Polish professional has a drop in first-serve performance. However, her overall performance and return has been excellent. While her Kazakhstani opponent, Rybakina starts matches good, she tends to fall flat under pressure. Therefore, Swiatek will have a better odd if she can provide good force with fast movement and sharp angular shots. While for Rybakina, keeping cool under pressure and minimizing slip errors should be the winning chance.
However, with the current odds, there is a high chance of Iga Swiatek winning at present.
