Rybakina vs Sabalenka live stream: match preview
It’s been a hot and muggy day in Melbourne, but temperatures are expected to drop to a comfortable 20 degrees during this final with the roof of the Rod Laver Arena now mercifully open.
No one could accuse Elena Rybakina of taking the easy way to her first Australian Open final. The 23-year-old Kazakh beat three former Grand Slam champions in a row to reach Melbourne Park’s showpiece, beating Iga Swiatek – the world number one – Jelena Ostapenko and Victoria Azarenka in back-to-back matches. The reigning Wimbledon champion looked nervous in places, but came through in the semi-final against 24th seed Azarenka 7-6, 6-4, eventually finding a way to reverse the Belarusian’s excellent return in a exciting first set. Although Rybakina is outside the top 20 in the world due to the sanctions imposed on Russian athletes, Rybakina has the great experience to start this Australian Open women’s final as a slight favourite.
Aryna Sabalenka has gone somewhat under the radar in Melbourne, but by winning a maiden Grand Slam singles semifinal on the fourth attempt, the 24-year-old has made it to the grand final. Sabalenka’s 7-6, 6-2 defeat of Magda Linette turned into a comfortable victory after her all-or-nothing groundstrokes matched the consistency of a strong first serve in the second set. The fifth seed has yet to drop a set this tournament – or the 18 she played in 2023 after winning Adelaide’s warmup event – her aggressive starting game yields plenty of winners. That said, Sabalenka knows she has to play must-have tennis to get that first Slam.
The two players have faced each other three times before, with Sabalenka coming out on top each time. Can she do it again? Here’s how to watch a Rybakina vs Sabalenka live stream from anywhere.
