The top two seeds at the Linz Open are the last two women standing and will contest this year's final. Top seed Jelena Ostapenko will face second seed Ekaterina Alexandrova in the championship match on Sunday, February 4, 2024. Here's our Jelena Ostapenko vs Ekaterina Alexandrova prediction.

Jelena Ostapenko

Playing at the Linz Open for the first time since 2019, Jelena Ostapeno has had a rollercoaster week, to say the least. She survived a second-round late-night thriller against Denmark's rising star Clara Tauson, winning that one in a third-set tie-break. But she's obliterated her next two opponents, beating Briton Jodie Burrage 6-1, 6-2 in the quarterfinal and former French Open finalist Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2, 6-3 in the semifinal. Ostapenko has steadily found her feet as the tournament progressed, which could spell bad news for her final opponent, Ekaterina Alexnadrova.

Ekaterina Alexandrova

While Ostapenko cruised into the final on Saturday, Ekaterina Alexandrova needed three hours and six minutes to win the battle of the big hitters, beating Croaita's Donna Vekic 5-7, 7-6, 7-6. The Russian erased deficits in the second and third sets in a match that quickly threatened to slip away. It was her sixth win of the season, and she is seeking her first title of the campaign when she faces 2019 finalist Ostapenko.

Jelena Ostapenko vs Ekaterina Alexandrova Head-To-Head

Ekaterina Alexandrova leads Jelena Ostapenko 4-3 in the series, but the Lativan won their most recent clash in Adelaide last month. It was a pivotal win because Ostapenko went on to bag her seventh career title. Can Alexandrova serve revenge?

Jelena Ostapenko vs Ekaterina Alexandrova predicton

Jelena Ostapenkos is looking to become the first double champion of 2024. The last thing Alexandrova can do is give the Latvian a headstart in the match. Unlike Donna Vekic, who was probably complacent, Ostapenko is extremely remorseless because she is very consistent with her baseline game. Her serve was also very effective in the semifinal, wiping off all seven break points she faced and hammering ten aces. If she brings the same approach of going big on her serve and picking her spots, then Alexandrova will have a hard time trying to win points on the return. The Russian is a great ball striker herself and has a humongous serve, but she's not the cleanest hitter, which is why we are leaning towards Ostapenko here.
