Why Bet on Jelena Ostapenko?

It’s quite hard to believe that it took eight trips to the Australian Open for Jelena Ostapenko to reach the quarterfinal stage of the Grand Slam tourney Down Under. Her straight-sets victory over No. 7 seed Coco Gauff came as a shock to many, but it’s far from the biggest upset of the women’s singles tournament (more on that later).

Nevertheless, Ostapenko displayed amazing composure against America’s best hope and shut down Gauff’s constant attack. The 25-year-old Latvian contender has not tasted a Grand Slam title since her magical run in Wimbledon back in 2017. However, after several strong showings in doubles competitions, she appears to have regained her mojo in singles play at the right moment.

Working in favor of Ostapenko in her upcoming quarterfinal showdown is the fact that she’s beaten Rybakina in each of their two previous head-to-head matches. Granted, it was back in June of 2021 in Eastbourne where she prevailed victorious against her next opponent.

Why Bet on Elena Rybakina?

As impressive as Ostapenko’s comeback effort has been, the spotlight has mostly gone to 23-year-old Elena Rybakina, who had just eliminated World No. 1 and top-seeded Iga Swiatek from the Aussie Open. Not only that, but she did so with a gritty 6-4, 6-4 straight-sets victory over the Polish powerhouse.

Rybakina made a name for herself last year by stunningly winning Wimbledon as an unseeded talent. Many were speculative of that victory following an early first-round exit in the US Open, but the Kazakhstani standout has proven that her run in Wimby was no fluke.

Although Rybakina lost her past two meetings against Ostapenko as mentioned earlier, those losses came at a time before her sudden rise to WTA Tour fame. There’s just something about the young European’s poise under pressure in big-time moments that fans and bettors alike have grown more fond of her in such a short period of time.

Jelena Ostapenko vs. Elena Rybakina Expert Betting Prediction

As tempting as it is to go with head-to-head results as our guide for this matchup, we’re more inclined to stay with the hotter hand in Rybakina, who had a more daunting mountain to climb in the fourth round than Ostapenko all things considered. Another strong straight-sets win is likely in the works for Rybakina, but we also wouldn’t be surprised in Ostapenko takes their affair to a third and deciding set before succumbing to her younger foe.
