The Finale!

Wimbledon is in its last stages and the women’s leg has reached the title game. The women’s leg was marked by some superb memories. Iga Swiatek and Anett Kontaveit, the top two seeds got knocked out quickly, Serena Williams’ comeback was cut short by Harmony Tan, who had a memorable campaign. We had Tatjana Maria beat the odds, again and again, grinding her way to the Semi-Finals. She lost to Ons Jabeur who will take on Elena Rybakina on 9 July @ 04:00 PM (+03:00 UTC). Ons comes into this game after beating the aforementioned Tatjana Maria 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. Meanwhile, Elena Rybakina defeated Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3. Ons will have her hands full against Elena whose service game has been on point. How will this game pan out as we head into the last stages of the tournament?

Elena Rybakina: Aggressive approach

Rybakina entered with the odds of around 3.5 in the battle against Simona Halep, meaning she was considered an underdog. However, she took the fight to Halep and using her incredible striking speed, broke the Romanian’s rhythm. She took advantage of some poor play by Halep, who committed eight double-faults and was unable to read the speed created by the powerful striker Elena. Rybakina has been the Ace champion in the women’s leg, and although she nailed 4 against Halep, she had nailed 15 against Ajla Tomljanovic in the game before that. Halep stood no chance against Elena.

Rybakina is a risky player who forces her opponents to be on their best game and react quickly. She has a serve speed that rivals Iga Swiatek and when there is that amount of power in the service, no amount of alertness is enough. Sure, Rybakina lacks the versatility in her game and prefers to stand-and-deliver, giving all her power into the shots, rather than being cheeky, looking to slice, volley, or lob, she can do all this, but this is surely not her forte.

Ons Jabeur: On a roll

Against Maria, Ons established a strong start and took the fight to her. The first set won easily but in the second set, Maria was using her backhand slices very well, so Ons dropped the second set. In the third set, she came with a vengeance and shut the shop early, using her incredible forehand. Jabeur did a great job of breaking Maria’s serve, earning 4/11 breakpoints in the last game and that has been a huge strength of the Tunisian. Courtesy of that, she eked out 44-23 receiving points advantage.

Ons is a maestro during rallies and during this tournament, she has done a great job of breaking the opponent’s serve. Her ability to read the angles, pace, and the opponent’s strategies, makes her one of the smartest players in the world. She has a strong forehand, she uses her bakchand well, and can use no-look shots, slices, lobs, and drops in a consistent fashion. Jabeur is one of the most versatile players in the world and at times, she overthinks, which can hold her back.

Who will win the match between Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina?

Context

Jabeur has surely looked in terrific touch, someone who looks hungry for the maiden Grand Slam title and has played like an athlete on a mission. However, Elena is not the type of match-up she prefers. Rybakina can dictate the pace of the game using her eloquent service game while her returns also come at the speed of a bullet, you can’t blink against this stellar athlete. This is why Jabeur will need to come up with a simple strategy rather than trying to outfox Elena.

Rybakina can be taken aback by players like Jabeur who like to move around a lot and also have a solid game around the net and can manipulate the pace of the game. Rybakina hits it flat, using her solid lower base and height to create difficulties, whereas Jabeur loves to mix it up with different speeds. These two have met three times before with Jabeur winning two of them. This is the first time these two will meet on the grass. This is surely a box-office affair.

Win/Loss Betting

According to bookmakers at 1xBet, Ons Jabeur enters the game with an edge and has been allotted the odds of 1.69. Elena has been given the odds of 2.36, which indicates she does have a strong chance, even if she is not a favorite.

Total Games

Ons’ last two games have reached the third set whereas Rybakina’s last game was completed in two sets. Perhaps, Ons stand a better chance in a three-set battle and I do believe this will go the distance. That’s why I believe the total games will be over 22.5 which has the odds of 2.08.
