Reilly Opelka vs Lloyd Harris prediction for Monday’s US Open fourth round clash atUSTA Billie Jean King NTC in New York.

You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Reilly Opelka having a splendid US Open campaign

Reilly Opelka will do his best to continue his great results for the year. Evidently, the world number 24 reached the final of the Toronto Masters and lost to Medvedev. Also, the 24-year-old reached the semi-final of the Rome Masters.

Specifically, Opelka relies on his serve in his game, winning 77% of the points on his first serve in 2021. In the current US Open, the 22nd seed has not lost a set in three matches. Moreover the American lost his serve just twice in the process. 

Both of Opelka’s breaks of serve came during his last match against Basilashvili. Moreover, the American shot a whopping 52 winners. Opelka is improving rapidly and he can be a danger to any player if he keeps his serve at high percentages.

Opelka Key Stats

  • Opelka played on average 33.3 games per match in the US Open
  • The American shot 170 winners in three matches
  • 85 aces is the number of aces hit by Opelka in the US Open

Lloyd Harris will be a tough opponent

Like his opponent, Lloyd Harris is also having the best season of his career. In fact, the South African’s best results were on the hardcourt with a 14/9 record. In addition, the world number 46 reached the final of the Dubai Open

This is Harris’s third US Open participation and he is enjoying his best-ever result by reaching this round. In his first match, Harris beat the favorite Khachanov in a thrilling five-setter. But the next matches were easier, however, as the 24-year-old won in straight sets.

The South African is growing in confidence from match to match and he will be a very difficult opponent in this match. Notably, he had some very impressive wins against the likes of Nadal in Washington and Monfils in Halle.

Harris key stats

  • Harris played on average 102 games per match in three matches
  • The South African won 46% of the points behind his second serve
  • Seven is the number of times Harris lost his serve in the US Open

Reilly Opelka vs Lloyd Harris Prediction

This match is the battle of the big servers although Opelka has a clear advantage on that department. Nonetheless, Harris also relies heavily on his first serve as we saw in his last match against Shapovalov.

Notably, H2H meetings stand at 1-1 with Opelka winning the last time these two met in Toronto last month in a very tight three-setter. The bookies expect a similar scenario with Vbet offering ods of 1.76 for an Opleka win and 1.94 for a harris win.
