Elena Rybakina vs Victoria Azarenka Prediction, Odds, Weather and Live Streaming Details of 2024 Dubai Tennis Championships Match

The Middle East swing continues and the 2024 Dubai Tennis Championships will witness a thrilling Elena Rybakina vs Victoria Azarenka second-round clash. The SportsRush predicts Elena Rybakina to win in three sets and advance.

The Kazakh star is coming off a runner-up finish at the 2024 Qatar Open, losing to Iga Swiatek in the final. Seeded fourth in Dubai, she got a bye into the second round, hence will be well-rested. Azarenka, meanwhile, fell to the same opponent in the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open. She beat Arantxa Rus in the first round of the Dubai Tennis Championships.

This could be a tight contest, as Azarenka is in good touch and has loads of experience. However, Rybakina will have regained confidence after her performance in Doha. A confident and in-form Rybakina is one of the best players around. Expect the tie to possibly run close, but the World No.4 to emerge victorious.
