Elena Rybakina vs Petra Kvitova: Who will be the winner?
Rybakina, 23, has been on a roll this season. She reached the Australian Open final, then and after knocking out Pegula in the semi-final, she improved her win-loss this season by 21-4. Just a win in the final is required for her to win a rare Sunshine Double. At the Indian Wells, she upset No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka to lift the trophy.
The two-time Grand Slam champion Kvitova has won 16 and lost five matches so far in the season. The 33-year-old will bring her experience to the match, but Rybakina’s current form makes her the favorite to win the match.
Prediction: Rybakina to win in three sets.
