Iga Swiatek will take on Elena Rybakina in the final of the 2024 Doha Open. Both players have had sensational campaigns in the tournament so far and it will be a final worth tuning in for. While Swiatek is currently the World No. 1 in WTA rankings, this will be Rybakina’s third final in the 2024 tour already and shows the kind of form the Kazakh is currently in. 

Rybakina has already won the Brisbane International and the Abu Dhabi Open in 2024. She has played in four tournaments so far this season (including the Doha Open), won two of them and has now reached another final. Her only below par performance so far came in the Australian Open. Iga Swiatek, on the other hand, is looking to win her first trophy in 2024.

Iga Swiatek vs Elena Rybakina: Prediction 

Although Iga Swiatek is the No. 1 ranked player in the WTA, Elena Rybakina is the favorite to win this match. She has a 3:1 record over Swiatek in head-to-head matches. She defeated the Pole twice last season – once in the Australian Open and then in the Indian Wells. Moreover, Swiatek’s only win over Rybakina came because of a mid-match retirement. Thus, we predict that Elena Rybakina will win this match in three sets.
