Fourth seed and last year's finalist Elena Rybakina will take on 27th seed Victoria Azarenka in the semifinal of the 2024 Miami Open. The match will be played on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Here's our Elena Rybakina vs Victoria Azarenka prediction.

Elena Rybakina

Elena Rybakina has been pushed to her limit both physically and mentally but withstood every challenge. Clara Tauson, Taylor Townsend, and Maria Sakkari have all thrown the kitchen sink at her, but the big-serving Kazakh has done commendably to repel them. The aforementioned trio have each taken a set from her, and it remains to be seen whether that will have an impact on Rybakina's performance in the semifinal. She has already spoken about a tough period of recovery since Dubai and was forced to skip her title defense in Indian Wells because of a grade II lateral sprain.

Victoria Azarenka

Victoria Azarenka is turning back time at this year's Miami Open. The 34-year-old fended off an inspired Yulia Putintseva in the quarterfinal in a marathon match that lasted almost three hours. Her run also included wins over Peyton Stearns, Australian Open finalist Qinwen Zheng, and in-form Brit Katie Boulter. So, the Belarusian has been working overtime in getting to this stage. Can she pull off the big upset and score her first win over Rybakina in the series?

Elena Rybakina vs Victoria Azarenka Head-To-Head

Elena Rybakina leads the head-to-head 3-0, winning their last showdown in Dubai this year via a retirement. During that match, Azarenka picked up her first set in this rivalry.

Elena Rybakina vs Victoria Azarenka Prediction

There are still question marks pertaining to Rybakina's fitness, but she has shown remarkable resilience in digging deep and crossing the finish line in each of her four matches this fortnight. A fit and healthy Rybakina wins this match, potentially in straight sets. However, she has been forthright about her condition (without revealing the nature of the injury), and maybe this is Azarenka's best chance to get one over the Kazakh in the series.
