Krejcikova vs Sabalenka (September 7) betting tips and prediction
I think that Sabalenka looks stronger going into this match. She hasn’t met much weaker rivals at the 2021 US Open than herself, except for Nina Stojanovic, and has shown irreproachableness. Also, the Belarusian is the winner of the only H2H fixture against Krejcikova.
Of course, the Czech looks fine this year, she has won many matches to date, but her rivals in those fixtures have been much weaker than Sabalenka is.
I believe the game will be close, but Aryna Sabalenka should gain a victory.
