World No. 34 Marta Kostyuk will face British No. 1 Katie Boulter in the final of the 2024 San Diego Open. The match will be played on Sunday, March 3, 2024. Here's our Marta Kostyuk vs Katie Boulter prediction.

Marta Kostyuk

A year from winning her first WTA title in Austin, Texas, Marta Kostyuk will contest the biggest WTA final of her young career in San Diego. How she got here is through grit and perseverance. Kostyuk recovered from an illness that forced her to withdraw from Doha. And she took a while to find her range in her first match against Ann Li, which she won in three sets. But her level got progressively better and amanged to score a fine win over the top seed Jessica Pegula in the semifinal. Kostyuk clawed her way from 1-5 down in the first set to win 7-6, 6-1.

Katie Boulter

Like Kostyuk, Katie Boulter is also playing for her biggest WTA title on Sunday. The British No. 1 won a maiden WTA title in Nottingham last year. Her career has been on an upward trajectory for the past 18 months. Her run in San Diego will ensure she will be a Top 50 mainstay for the longest time possible. Boulter has faced a more sterner route to reach the final, beating three Top 30 players including the in-form home favorite Emma Navarro in the semis. Can she walk away with the silver on Sunday?

Marta Kostyuk vs Katie Boulter Head-To-Head

These two players have never crossed paths at any level. This will be their first career meeting.

Marta Kostyuk vs Katie Boulter Prediction

This should be a cracking final. Although Boulter's run to the final has been the more impressive, Kostyuk's remarkable performance in beating World No. 5 Jessica Pegula in the semifinal might tilt the pendulum in her favor. It's a WTA 500 title on the line, something that neither these two players have won before, and would be a massive confidence booster heading to Indian Wells. Kostyuk is the steadier performer, but Boulter has been very efficient from the baseline and surprisingly accurate. We could be looking at three sets here. So, the best way to approach the markets would be to back the games spread (overs) at -116.
