Swiatek vs Rybakina Prediction
Both Swiatek and Rybakina have had a stellar season so far. Therefore, fans expect an exciting face-off between the two reigning Grand Slam champions on the court.
The Polish professional has a drop in first-serve performance. However, her overall performance and return have been excellent. While her Kazakhstani opponent, Rybakina, starts matches well, she tends to fall flat under pressure. Therefore, Swiatek will have better odds if she can provide the 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.
