Elena Rybakina meets Katerina Siniakova in the second-round of the 2020 WTA Dubai Open.

Elena Rybakina just knocked out Sofia Kenin, the Australian Open Champion, in the first-round. Rybakina was incredibly tough in that match, coming back from a set down to win the next two pretty comfortably. Rybakina showed us her ability to win big points, saving 4/5 break points and her ability to serve to her opponents weaker sides. Rybakina will need make sure she is playing the same style of tennis which won her the last two sets as she now meets Katerina Siniakova in the second-round.

Katerina Siniakova won a hard-fought match against Karolina Muchova, eventually winning the last set with a 6-0 scoreline. Siniakova struggled with her second serve, only winning 50% of the points, but she was able to win points when it mattered most. Siniakova saved 5 out of 7 break points, allowing her to keep herself in the match and eventually book her spot in the second round. Siniakova will be confident after winning the third set 6-0 and will want to maintain her level when she meets Elena Rybakina.

This will be the 5th meeting between both players, and the H2H is tied at 2-2. This is an extremely close match and both players could win it. But the player who stands out to me is Rybakina who threw out the Australian Open Champion who was in great form.

Elena Rybakina to win.
