Simona Halep vs. Elena Rybakina preview
Rybakina is the lesser-known of the two players, but the 23-year-old Kazakh is extremely talented. She made a run to the fourth round last year at Wimbledon, and Rybakina is a two-time WTA title winner. Her most high-profile victory in the tournament came against Bianca Andreescu in straight sets, with Rybakina losing only one set in the tournament. She overcame an opening set loss in the quarterfinal, showing resilience, and her serve is a dangerous weapon in any setting.
Halep, the No. 16 seed, won the 2019 Wimbledon title. She is the only former grand slam champion remaining in the draw, also winning the 2018 French Open title. Halep enters on a 12-match winning streak at Wimbledon, and she defeated No. 4 seed Paula Badosa and Amanda Anisimova in the last two matches. Halep has not lost a set in the tournament, and she owns a 2-1 career edge over Rybakina, including a 2021 win at the U.S. Open.
