Australian Open 2023, Women’s Singles Final Live:Aryna Sabalenka will take on Elena Rybakina in the Women’s singles final of the Australian Open 2023, at the Rod Laver Arena on Saturday. Belarusian fifth seed Sabalenka is regarded as a slight favourite, although it is Moscow-born Kazakh Rybakina who has the experience of having already won a Grand Slam. The 23-year-old won Wimbledon last year and acknowledges that her serve is her “weapon”. If that fires under the lights at Rod Laver Arena, Sabalenka could be in trouble. Rybakina has sent down 45 aces in reaching the decider at Melbourne Park, easily more than anyone else in the women’s draw.
