Caroline Wozniacki v Angelique Kerber Betting Tip

Angelique Kerber will play against Caroline Wozniacki in the semi-final of the US Open. An interesting match-up and a tough one to call. Something that does stand out, though, is that we could be in for a reasonably long game here. Both players are consistent and can dig deep in tough situations. You can see how Kerber played against Vinci with her slow serve and without much confidence, whilst Wozniacki was also rather tame with her shots. I think the Dane will try to play a few high shots with a little bit of variety. This is a tactic that…

Lucas Pouille v Gael Monfils – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Lucas Pouille played great tennis in his win against Nadal and is in the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the second time in a row. He has made good progress and perhaps this is the new generation of French tennis. After this tournament he will enter the top 20. What is most striking is that it has taken five sets to win his last three matches. After the match against Nadal he said that he had given everything he had. However, I think Lucas should have recovered sufficiently in the two days since as he is still young. Gael…

Novak Djokovic v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Regarding Novak Djokovic it is difficult to say anything. He has had two matches, one good and the other one not so good. However, it is clear who the favourite is here and, let’s face it, it’s always very hard to dismiss a player of Djokovic’s quality and it’s fair to say that the Serbian will very likely win this contest and probably win it well. In beating both Kevin Anderson and Jack Sock in straight sets, Tsonga has played well himself here. However, he will not have enough to force Djokovic into a fight and I doubt the Frenchman…

Roberta Vinci v Angelique Kerber – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Right now it would appear as though Kerber is simply some kind of monster – she seemingly comes through all challenges without any problems. The head-to-head record current stands at 2:2 but they have not played each other for a long time and it is Kerber who has moved forward significantly in this time. Vinci has a rather unusual style and often plays to the left as well as coming into the net quite a lot, although this should not cause Kerber any serious problems. Furthermore, Vinci’s serve is not particularly powerful and is impossible to compare to one such…

Caroline Wozniacki v Anastasia Sevastova – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Tomorrow Caroline Wozniacki will play Anastasia Sevastova – a player who has surprised almost everybody at this tournament by coming so far. However, despite Anastasia’s impressive performances to reach this stage of the competition, I think Caroline should come through. Her ranking has dropped recently and she will want to go as far as possible in order to score points to improve. If this is her goal then she is unlikely to get a better opportunity to reach a semi-final of a major tournament. In reality, Wozniacki should win this match in two sets. Sevastova has minor problems with her…

Kei Nishikori v Ivo Karlovic – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Karlovic had a great summer, winning two tournaments as well as being in the final in Washington where he lost to Gael Monfils. He had a difficult match against Lu Yen-hsun at the start of his US Open campaign but then went on to beat both Donald Young and Jared Donaldson in three sets. I am not sure what is going on with the draw but Nishikori is not the best when it comes to playing four sets whereas Karlovic is stronger in that type of game. Karlovic’s incredible serve will be very dangerous for Nishikori and these could be decisive…

Agnieszka Radwanska v Ana Konjuh – Anna Chakvedtadze’s Betting Tip

When you first look at this pairing you immediately recall their dramatic match at Wimbledon. The Croat had match points in that tie but slipped and injured herself trying to reach a Radwanska shot. She eventually lost the match 7:9 and left the court in tears. However, soon afterwards she was able to recover and is now in the fourth round of the US Open which is an excellent result for her. The draw has been kind to both girls apart from the fact Konjuh had Kiki Bertens in the first round. Whilst the match was long, the Croat managed…

Carla Suárez Navarro v Simona Halep Betting Tip

There is a great history when it comes to personal meetings between these two girls with the score nicely poised at 5:5. Last time the pair met resulted in a win for Suárez Navarro. However, that match was played on clay whereas, on the hard courts, Halep has the advantage. Although most of the matches were difficult for the Romanian, winning only one match in two sets, Halep has a 4:1 advantage on the hard courts. On top of this, Halep has beaten Suárez Navarro at the US Open before – a match that went to three sets. To be…

Karolína Plíšková v Venus Williams – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

The US Open continues to delight us with both interesting and compelling events. Here we are looking at the very intriguing confrontation between American Venus Williams and Czech tennis player Karolína Plíšková. First and foremost, I think Plíšková will progress here. She is well prepared and in good shape, whilst she has also begun to move faster on the court. On the other hand, Venus Williams is usually unpredictable and still capable of producing some very good tennis, but I am afraid that i just cannot see her taking her chances in this match. After all, in front of a…

Karolína Plíšková v Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Plíšková has looked very good recently, winning the 2016 WTA Premier tournament in Cincinnati from which she has not looked back, especially in terms of her excellent serve which seems to be going from strength to strength. What’s more is the fact that she’s faced a weak opponent in the first round and is likely to be far less exerted than many.  Statistics of matches between Plíšková and Pavlyuchenkova are entirely in the Czech’s favour. They have played each other three times with Plíšková winning in straight sets on each occasion, the last time being in Sydney this year. Although…

Carla Suárez Navarro v Elena Vesnina – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Carla is the favourite for this mach, she easily got passed Jelena Jankovic in the second round and only lost a few games. However, it must be said that the Serb is nowhere near her peak right now and she will need to produce more to go far in this tournment. Vesnina has been hitting some really powerful shots recently and her first serve is looking very effective. These girls have already played each other once this year, in Doha, where the Spaniard won 6:3 7:6, but I think Vesnina has added a lot to her game since then. She…

Johanna Konta v Belinda Bencic – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Despite the fact that Johanna Konta is considered the favorite for this match, I would still back Belinda Bencic. The Brit was able to recover miraculously after she suffered an on-court collapse during her match with Pironkova. Some say it was heat stroke whilst others say it was a panic attack. Either way it is extraordinary that she still managed to win in spite of the collapse. Will she be able to produce her best form here having seemingly dug so deep to win under much strain last time out? I’m not convinced.  These two players play in a very…

Annika Beck v Elena Vesnina – Anna Chakvetadze Betting Tip

Elena Vesnina had a complex opening match, having to play all three sets against Anett Kontaveit. The Estonian played well but in the end Vesnina came out on top. Her reward for this victory is a second round match against Beck who she comfortably dispatched of at the US Open a few years ago. Since then Beck has improved technically but physically is still very much the same and it appears as though she has not grown stronger in that time. She can run a lot and has a knack of getting to seemingly unreachable balls, however, if her opponent…

Steve Johnson v Juan Martin Del Potro – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

Steve Johnson continues his rise in the rankings and is already close to the top 20. If he has a good US Open then he could break into that bracket. In the second round he has received a ‘gift’ in Juan Martin Del Potro who is still not back in the top one hundred despite his Olympic Silver. Unfortunately for him, the Olympics do not affect a player’s ranking. Johnson won a crazy match against Evgeny Donskoy in the first round, who himself had seven match points. I cannot imagine how one can miss seven match points, including three in…

Lucie Šafářová v Simona Halep – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

This is a great match-up for the second round. However, it has not been a very good season for Lucie, and, as a results, she is not among the seeded players. Having said that, she played well against Daria Gavrilova in the first round, confidently winning 6:4 6:4. This shows that she is gradually getting her game back. Šafářová showed good resistance, before confidently dispatching of her opponent with the score at 5:4 in the second set. Lucy has not made many mistakes recently and, as previously mentioned, looked good in the first round. In my opinion she can certainly…

Rafael Nadal v Andreas Seppi – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

As I have already said, I do not believe that Rafael Nadal will be able to win the US Open. However, he came through the first round well – easily beating Denis Istomin, whilst Andreas Seppi came through in four sets against Stephen Robert. Nadal and Seppi played each other at the Olympics where Nadal easily beat the Italian 6:3 6:3. In my opinion, Nadal was in worse shape there than he is in now. For that match he had only just come back after a break, whereas he is now in better condition, though still far from his peak.…

Andrea Petkovic v Belinda Bencic – Anna Chakvetadze’s Betting Tip

I think people should go for Belinda Bencic in this match. It seems to me that her style of play will be very uncomfortable for Petkovic. Andrea is moving very heavily at the moment whilst Bencic has never been in better form. She missed a lot of tennis through injuries but is now gradually coming back into it. Belinda Bencic battled to victory against Crawford in the first round but she is still playing well. Bencic beat Petkovic with ease in the Fed Cup earlier on in the season in just two sets. If she is able to draw on…

US Open 2016 Men’s Outright Betting Tip

The final Grand Slam of the season will go ahead without Roger Federer but does include Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard performed well at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, reaching the semi-final in the singles and winning the gold medal in  the doubles with Marc Lopez. However, he has got a nasty draw and the Spaniard isn’t exactly expected to win here. We revisit the beaten track when considering the chances of the winner of the US Open. The main four are considered to be Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Milos Raonic and Juan Martin Del Potro. Novak Djokovic Djokovic…

US Open 2016 Women’s Outright Betting Tip

Serena Williams Although the younger of the Williams sisters seems to have the luxury of largely playing in the major tournaments, despite the requests and requirements of the WTA, Serena is considered the favourite ahead of the season’s final grand slam, as is the case in just about every tournament she enters – such has been the American’s dominance of the women’s game over the last decade or so. With this being a home tournament she will have the backing of the crowd behind her. But, even though this is always considered a huge boost, this won’t be an easy…
