The Australian Open women’s final has been set. In the early hours of Thursday morning on U.S. time, No. 22 Elena Rybakina beat No. 24 Victoria Azarenka 7-6, 6-3 and No. 5 Aryna Sabalenka beat unseeded Magda Linette 7-6, 6-2 to advance to the finals. The women’s champ will be determined on Saturday, January 28 at 3:30 a.m. ET.

Rybakina took home Wimbledon in 2022 shortly after her 23rd birthday, and will be looking for her second Grand Slam before she turns 24. Twenty-four year old Sabalenka had made four Grand Slam semifinals in three years, but this is her first time reaching the finals in the women’s singles draw.

Sabalenka is a -140 favorite to win Saturday’s final at DraftKings Sportsbook. Rybakina is installed at +115.
