Fourth seed and last year's finalist Elena Rybakina will face American Danielle Collins in the final of the 2024 Miami Open. The match will be played on Saturday, March 30, 2024. Here's our Elena Rybakina vs Danielle Collins prediction.

Elena Rybakina

Elena Rybakina has lived to fight for another day at the Miami Open after narrowly coming away with another three-set win. The big-serving Kazakh took down an inspired Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 0-6, 7-6 to reach her second straight final in Florida. Rybakina has weathered every storm this fortnight. He has required the drama of a third set in four of her five outings. Additionally, she has been candid about her body, admitting that she is physically not operating at 100%. The kind of pain Rybakina is feeling is unclear, but it could be related to gastrointestinal issues that forced her to withdraw from Indian Wells.

Danielle Collins

What a fortnight this has turned out to be for Danielle Collins, whose retirement from tennis might have a fairytale ending. The 30-year-old has dropped just one set at this year's Miami Open, which was on the second day of the tournament. Collins has laid waste to the likes of Anastasia Potapova, Sorana Cirstea, Caroline Garcia, and Iga Swiatek's conqueror Ekaterina Alexndrova—all of whom are ranked higher than her in the world rankings. She has been serving efficiently and crashing every ball in her line of vision without committing too many errors. Testament to her dominance and exceptional performances, she has not dropped more than three games in a set from the second-round stage.

Elena Rybakina vs Danielle Collins Head-To-Head

Elena Rybakina and Danielle Collins have played four times on tour, with the Kazakh leading the h2h 3-1. But it should be noted that all three of Rybakina's victories have required a deciding set.

Elena Rybakina vs Danielle Collins Prediction

Will Rybakina exorcise her demons from 12 months ago when she lost to 34-year-old Petra Kvitova? This time, 30-year-old Danielle Collins stands in her way to the title. Collins was born and bred in Florida, and it would be a fitting way to win her biggest career title in her final season as a pro on home soil. The Miami Open is also the tournament that kickstarted her breakthrough run on the top tier of women's tennis six years ago. It's not by accident that she's in a final because she's been playing well all year, and it's unfortunate that her ranking was so low at the start of the season and that she was unseeded in most major tournaments. With that said, I think it would be smart to back the World No. 53. Rybakina has been under the cosh for the entire tournament, and it's a minor miracle she reached the final. Her bubble of hope will likely burst, and Collins gets our vote to win the title.
