Sabalenka is confident on these courts, but last year she beat choker and fellow BBB Nettu in the final. Alison is on a hot streak and will be a much trickier opponent. All the pressure will be on Sabalenka to defend her title. Should be a good one. I'll say Alison in 3 sets.

sabalenka is playing great, having fun, coach back, she'll win in 2 close sets.

riske not to be underestimated, but aryna has already beaten her in a final this year, and she will want to keep that record intact. big chance to win the doubles as well with elise after the singles final.

Riske usually struggles against big hitters. Even today, where she played one of her best matches, she still struggled. Petra is not match fit, gifted 45 errors & still she barely scraped by a straight set win.

That said, players don’t usually defend titles. And there’s a reason. This I think makes the match a lot closer.

Saba has been a force to reckon with so far so it'll be a hard match to take away from her but Riske, she has been a rock mentally and won the matches not a lot of people thought she would! Shown a lot of grit and tenacity.

Lets do this Ali, lets get big win tomorrow. Let's go!

Could not have asked for a better final!! Super contrasting styles and love these 2.

Voted Aryna in 3, but wouldn't be surprised if it was the opposite.

It all depends on what continent Sabalenka's mind is in during the match.
There is always the possibility the Sab will go totally berserk and lose the match.
If Sab can keep her head on straight, she is the favorite.
