WTA Upper Austria Ladies, Linz: Ostapenko v Rybakina

Jelena Ostapenko 2.14, Elena Rybakina 1.86

 

Due to start at 5:30 pm.

This will be their first meeting.

Much stronger results for Rybakina in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Her indoor results are also a lot better. She has won 13 of 15 in 2019 compared to 4 of 7 for Ostapenko.

I expected Alize Cornet to give Ostapenko some problems and she did early in their match but retired in set 2. Ostapenko has a poor record in Linz.

Rybakina beat Siegemund in 3 sets in the last round. She also had a tricky first round match against Nina Stojanovic who has had a good season. Rybakina won in straight sets but needed a tie break in the opening set.

Stats for the tournament actually favour Ostapenko although Rybakina has been better on serve ( huge shock!). Lay Ostapenko around 1.60 to 1.70 and remove liability at 2.30.

Ostapenko has returned quite well this week and could take this 3 but I favour Rybakina to win.
