Leylah Fernandez vs Aryna Sabalenka: Prediction and Betting Tips
Leyla Fernandez showing exquisite tennis to topple seed after seed
The incredible run of teenage sensation Leylah Fernandez continues at the US Open. Amazingly, the 18-year-old stunned Elina Svitolina in the quarter-finals and beat her in three sets. Hence, the Canadian will play in her maiden Grand Slam semi-final in her first appearance.
Now and after three back-to-back wins against seeded players, Fernandez is a serious contender to win the title. Considering her incredible talent, courage, and style, it is not something distant to achieve. Moreover, the way she hits the ball very early, on the rise, gives her opponents very little time to adjust. To sum up, this teenager is not done yet!
Fernandez key stats
- Fernandez lost her serve 13 times in five matches at the US Open
- The Canadian played 28.4 games per match in five matches
- 43.2 is the average number of winners by Fernandez at the US Open
Aryna Sabalenka must be in full focus to reach her first final
The number two seed Aryna Sabalenka will play in her third Grand Slam semi-final of the year. Consequently, the Belarusian will battle for a place in her first-ever final. However, she faces a big hurdle, namely Leylah Fernandez. Surely watching three seeds tumble in front of the Canadian will raise caution in the Belarussian.
On the positive side, Sabalenka herself is playing very well. In fact, she lost just one set at the US Open so far. During the last round, the 23-year-old eliminated the 2021 French Open champion Krejcikova in straight sets. To sum up, the world number two has a very difficult task to succeed where three of her fellow seeded players failed. Will Sabalenka be the fourth?
Sabalenka key stats
- In five matches Sabalenka played 97 games at the US Open
- Sabalenka won 81% of the points on her first serve
- The Belarussian lost her serve just once per match
Leylah Fernandez vs Aryna Sabalenka Prediction
Rarely do we see a player at this young age of Leylah Fernadez so complete. In fact, the 18-year-old is playing in a style that reminds us of Andre Agassi. The American was a sensation with his “on the rise” return of shots and took the tennis world by storm.
Thus, we could be in a similar situation given the Canadian can produce the same level continuously. But, the fighter that she is, Sabalenka with her current form may be the only one to stop Fernandez. She has to play her shots as deep as possible and expect all shots to return.
The world number two is the favorite to win with odds of 1.22 at William Hill. For a more profitable bet, we have to look elsewhere. Hence, the total number of games market is the best option since we think both players will win many games.
