Belinda Bencic vs Elena Rybakina: Preview
Third seed Belinda Bencic has been in sublime form lately. After a shocking debut at Wimbledon, she won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. She then made it to the quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Masters and followed by another quarterfinal at the US Open, where she lost to the eventual champion. Emma Raducanu.
She then reached the quarterfinals of both the Luxembourg Open and the Ostrava Open. This week in Chicago, she beat Maddison Inglis in the first round before being bettered by Tereza Martincova.
Elena Rybakina made headlines at the French Open earlier this year when she defeated Serena Williams in the fourth round. Since then, she has been rapidly leveling up. She reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon before reaching the quarterfinals of the Silicon Valley Classic. She then reached the third round of the US Open before losing to former world No. 1 Simona Halep.
In Chicago, she still hasn’t dropped a set and has beaten the likes of Aliaksandra Sasnovich and 12th seed Veronika Kudermetova to advance to the round of eight.

Belinda Bencic vs Elena Rybakina: Prediction
The match is expected to close as both players have been phenomenal this season. Bencic, however, will have a slight edge over her recent experience and form. But she will be wary of Rybakina’s court insurance. Arguably, Bencic should win the match and advance to the semi-finals.
Guess: Bencic to win in three sets.
