Match Predict – Handicap (+4) for Ostapenko
Both players had sensational victories in the previous round and are now in great form. For Rybakina the matches against Ostapenko are very difficult, as she has lost to her twice in her career. Today she is unlikely to win in a landslide.
Total Games Over 20
Both players have a strong serve, and both try to play in an aggressive manner, but often lose concentration and don’t come into the game immediately in certain segments. We think an exchange of sets won today is likely.

Ostapenko, meanwhile, reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in five years.
In the fourth round, Jelena sensationally defeated Coco Gauff (7-5, 6-3), who had previously won eight matches in a row and did not give up a single set. Moreover, Ostapenko proved to be enough in two sets.
Jelena could receive only one game on the court, while Coco converted three break points in her career.
Gauff seemed not to expect Ostapenko to play at such a high level. However, it was not only a surprise for Coco, who was also a few times out of sorts because of her opponent’s unpleasant behaviour.
In the other encounters, she defeated Dayana Yastremska (6-4, 6-2), Anna Bondar (7-6, 5-7, 6-0) and Kateryna Baindl (6-3, 6-0).
Jelena Ostapenko has notched up seven wins in her last ten meetings on the hard court.
