Iga Swiatek v Aryna Sabalenka: How to watch, TV channel, start time and head-to-head stats

In what is a repeat of the WTA Madrid final from a fortnight ago, the best two female players on the planet go toe-to-toe again as world number one Iga Swiatek bids to claim her third Italian Open title at Aryna Sabalenka’s expense.

Swiatek triumphed in Rome in 2021 and 2022 and she will be hoping to bring up the hat-trick against world number two Sabalanka, a player she defeated 7-5 4-6 7-6 in the final in the Spanish capital earlier this month.
