Elena Rybakina vs Aryna Sabalenka live stream | WTA Indian Wells Final Preview

Andy Watson in Indian Wells Masters 18 Mar 2023
Aryna Sabalenka (PA Sport)

We will have a repeat of the Australian Open final in Indian Wells as Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka face off once more.

Sabalenka starts as favourite after taking that Australian Open final in three sets, but Rybakina has every chance of overturning that defeat after showing how strong her form is by annihilating Iga Swiatek in the semifinals 6-2 6-2.

The semi-final was also fairly straightforward for Sabalenka as she dispatched the other 2022 finalist Maria Sakkari, also in straight sets, 6-2 6-3.

The head-to-head between Rybakina and Sabalenka now looks good for the Belarusian in that she leads it 4-1. However, all five of their matches have gone three sets so actually it is a really tight match-up.

Taking the players’ respective performances over the course of the tournament, it is Sabalenka with the more impressive data. She has held 4% more games than Rybakina, but broken serve 10% more often than Rybakina has managed. Both have lost only one set on the way to the final, which is more impressive for Rybakina as she has had to play a match more.

I think that the confidence that Sabalenka is playing with and the dynamic return game firing that the Australian Open champion will win this one, and this time in straight sets
