Aryna Sabalenka vs Donna Vekic Prediction:
Both Aryna Sabalenka and Donna Vekic are currently in their best form so far. While, Vekic has the edge over their history so far, Sabalenka had a good run this year.
Donna Vekic relied on finishing rallies with dropshot and lobs, during her latest win against Linda Fruhvirtova. Which might again catch Aryna Sabalenka off guard if used properly. Additionally, Sabalenka have been struggling against flat hitters since recent years.
While the Belarusian isn’t the best with movement over long period, her Croatian opponent need to really focus on serving to create the perfect situation. Her recent mistake nearly cost her a set in the round four game, which will be more punished by the experience professional like Sabalenka.
Vakic seems to have the better odds while comparing their history so far. However, Sabalenka has shown dramatic improvement on serve periods and past mistakes of the ongoing event. Therefore, with proper composure and movement, she will be our favorite for the upcoming quarterfinals of Australian Open 2023.
