Katerina took care of Anna-Lena Friedsam in the semi-finals to reach the Slovenia Open final. She beat the German by 6-1, 7-5 in straight sets.
Katerina Siniakova began her tournament with a straight-set victory over Trevisan (4th seed). She beat Jodie Anna Burrage in the second round to face the defending champion, Jasmine Paolini, in the quarter-finals.
It will be the 7th head-to-head meeting between Elena Rybakina and Katerina Siniakova. Rybakina is 4-2 up against Siniakova.

Rybakina vs Siniakova Prediction
Elena Rybakina (Rank 25) is fresh off a 6-1, 6-1 dominating victory over Ana Bogdan in the semi-finals. She will try to replicate her performance in the final.
Rybakina hit 5 aces, and only a double-fault in that win. She didn’t concede any breakpoints.
Elsewhere, Katerina Siniakova (Rank 82) is coming off a straight-sets victory over Friedsam. Siniakova hit only 1 ace and 5 double faults in her semi-final win. She also lost her serve twice. However, she needs to improve her serve to get an edge over Rybakina.
We predict Elena Rybakina will win in three sets.
