Rivakina defeated Victoria Azaranka (34, Belarus) with a set score of 2-0 (7-6 <7-4> 6-3) in the semifinals of the tournament held in Melbourne, Australia on the 26th. Sabalenka also reached the final by defeating Magda Linenette (31, Poland) 2-0 (7-6 <7-1> 6-2) that day. Rivakina and Savalenka will decide the final game over the championship cup on the 28th. The two players had met three times before, and Sabalenka had won all three.
This is the second time Rivakina has reached the singles final of her major, since last year’s Wimbledon, when she was crowned. He was originally a Russian player, but in 2018, he changed his nationality to Kazakhstan after being offered financial support and admission to a US university. Azaranka, who won the Australian Open twice in a row in 2012 and 2013, aimed for the top again in 10 years, but stopped the challenge in the semifinals.
For Sabalenka, this is her first major final. A Belarusian player, he was unable to compete in Wimbledon last year due to Russia and Belarus being banned from participating after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. However, he reached the semifinals at the US Open, where he was allowed to play, and reached the final at the Australian Open, his first major tournament of the year. Sabalenka continues her winning streak by not dropping a single set in her 10-game streak this year.
