Rybakina and Sabalenka prepared the way for a powerful Melbourne final.

On Saturday, ELENA RYBAKINA will face Aryna Sabalenka in a thrilling Australian Open women's final.


Sabalenka defeated unseeded Pole Magda Linette 7-6 (1) 6-2 to reach her first grand slam singles final, while Wimbledon champion Rybakina defeated Victoria Azarenka 7-6 (4) 6-3.

At Melbourne Park, a new women's champion will be crowned as a result of the results, and both players wanted to emphasize that the work is not done yet.

Rybakina stated, "I'm happy but tired at the same time." However, I believe it was an excellent match. Today's conditions were different from those of my previous matches. I'm really glad to be in the last and prepared to give all that I have left in one day."

In the previous two seasons, Sabalenka had lost three times in grand slam semifinals, but when she finally won, she only briefly clenched her fist.

The Belarusian, who has yet to lose a set in ten matches in 2023, stated, "There is still one more match to go." Although there is still one match to go, it is encouraging that I kind of make it to the semi-finals. I simply want to remain focused.
