Rybakina vs Ostapenko Prediction & Pick
Rybakina and Ostapenko have been putting on a show at the 2023 Aussie Open, only losing one set apiece thus far. Having said that, the former's road has been tougher, needing to overcome Swiatek and Danielle Collins — the No. 1 and No. 13 players, respectively — to get to this point.
I think the rougher path will pay off for Rybakina tonight. She needed to elevate her game to get both of those wins, whereas Ostapenko has been playing against lower competition aside from Gauff. Furthermore, there's no doubt that Rybakina will be looking to send a message after falling to Ostapenko in their first two meetings.
I expect a back-and-forth contest with Rybakina walking out on top.
Rybakina vs Ostapenko Best Bet
While Rybakina is my pick to win, it won't be easy. Ostapenko has had her number in the past and likely won't go down without a fight. With both women also having just lost one set each in Melbourne, they're going to be bringing their A-game to the table tonight and I won't be surprised if Ostapenko takes a set.
In what should be a competitive tilt, give me Rybakina in three.
Bet: Elena Rybakina 2-1 (+270)
