WTA US Open, 2nd round: Duan v Osaka (19:30)

This is the first time they have met.

Duan did well for me in the last round. She saved 8 bp in the 3 sets with Sakkari. She won a hard court title earlier this month in China.

Osaka had a decent win over Vandeweghe in the last round. Vandeweghe has a poor record in the US Open but it still needed a strong performance to take the third set. Osaka doesn’t often string 2 good performances together. This should be another tight match and we have some value on Duan


WTA US Open, 2nd round: Tsurenko v Wang (16:00)

This is their first meeting.

Tsurenko has had injury issues for a large part of the season. She withdrew from a tournament in May and retired from New Haven last week. She had an excellent straight sets win in the last round over Begu. She can’t be backed at 1.31 with doubts over fitness.

Wang has performed well in ITF hard court events. She has come through the qualifying rounds and had an excellent win in the main draw.

We have some value on Wang. I’ll be looking to lay between 1.20 and 1.25 . Remove liability if Tsurenko gets broken.


ATP US Open, 1st round: Tipsarevic v Querrey (17:30)

Head to heads are  3-3. Their most recent meeting was in August 2013 in Cincinnati. Querrey took the first set in a tie break but Tipsarevic came back to win in 3.

Tipsarevic is finding his way back after playing very little tennis for a couple of years. He won a Challenger title on clay earlier this month though it wasn’t a strong field.

Querrey had an amazing run at Wimbledon where he beat Djokovic and backed it up with a quarter final in Washington but since then he has been poor.

I favour Querrey to win this but I don’t think he wins  in straight sets. Back him if he loses set 1. This could be an interesting one.
