Aryna Sabalenka versus Elena Rybakina

Aryna Sabalenka is rolling in 2023 and there are very few qualms as to why she is now the #2 ranked player in the world.

After reaching her first GS title at the Aussie Open, the sky's the limit for the Belarussian player.

Sabalenka is one of the most powerful forces on the women’s tour, and she has the shot power to decimate anyone in her path.

She has had trouble with unforced errors in her career in the past, but she seems to be finally cutting down on the mistakes.

Making the right decisions in rallies has played a huge part in her come up in 2023, and she continues to make strides on dominating the ball in all aspects.

She forces her way into strong positions in rallies and puts the opponent away with the last ball in nearly every point she plays.

Winners are being hit from all angles, and that’s what makes her so scary. She will have a slight edge in this matchup, so expect her to play on top.

Elena Rybakina is another player to watch for in 2023 and could possibly make her way to a top ten or even top five ranking by the end of the year.

Although her Wimbledon points did not count, Rybakina faced Sabalenka in a tough three setter to decide the AO Final.

Banking on her second GS title, Rybakina will have the game plan set to try and reverse past matchups with Sabalenka.

This match will come down to a few points, and whoever is better in pressure situations will likely come out with the win.

Rybakina needs to stay composed and win her service games, making sure it is nothing given easily.

If she can force Sabalenka into the net and other uncomfortable positions where she can make the passing shot on the target, then this match will be absolutely epic.
