Kei Nishikori vs Bradley Klahn
- 2019 US Open Odds: Kei Nishikori -625 / Bradley Klahn +374
Klahn is 2-12 in singles matches this year. It’s amazing that he got past Thiago Monteiro 6-3, 6-2, 6-3. Klahn won’t have the same luck versus Kei Nishikori on Wednesday. Nishikori dominated Marco Trungelleti in the first round. Trungelleti retired before the end of the third set. Kei wins.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Kei Nishikori
Dusan Lajovic vs Denis Kudla
- 2019 US Open Odds: Dusan Lajovic -178 / Denis Kudla +133
Lajovic-Kudla is setting up as one of the most competitive matchups in Round 2. Lajovic beat Steve Darcis 7-5, 6-3, 6-3. Kudla took down Janko Tipsarevic in what can only be described as a first round upset. Kudla worked hard to beat Tipsarevic. His U.S. Open ends on Wednesday.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Dusan Lajovic
Daniil Medvedev vs Hugo Dellien
- 2019 US Open Odds: Daniil Medvedev -9999 / Hugo Dellien +1183
Medvedev’s +1200 odds took a serious dive after his 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 beat down of Prajnesh Gunneswaran in the first round. Medvedev pummeled Gunneswaran. Although Dellien will give it his all, he shouldn’t last long versus one of the true contenders in this tournament.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Daniil Medvedev
Juan Ignacio Londero vs Novak Djokovic
- 2019 US Open Odds: Juan Ignacio Londero +1047 / Novak Djokovic -4999
Djokovic made quick work of Roberto Carballes Baena on Monday. He beat Baena in straight sets. It took Londero 5 sets to get by Sam Querrey. Sam was favored in that match. Londero fought hard to get by Querrey. Too bad he gets Novak in the second round.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Novak Djokovic
Grigor Dimitrov vs Borna Coric
- 2019 US Open Odds: Grigor Dimitrov +144 / Borna Coric -196
Coric is favored to beat Dimitrov on August 28. Dimitrov, though, showed real grit versus Andreas Seppi. He’s got a shot to knockout the 12-seed in this tournament.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Grigor Dimitrov
Lucas Pouille vs Daniel Evans
- 2019 US Open Odds: Lucas Pouille -181 / Daniel Evans +134
It took Pouille 4 sets to get by Phillip Kohlschreiber in Round 1. Daniel Evans needed 4 sets as well to get by Adrian Mannarino. Evans will play hard, but he’s going to have trouble getting by the 6’ 1”, 25-year-old Pouille.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Lucas Pouille
Dominik Koepfer vs Reilly Opelka
- 2019 US Open Odds: Dominik Koepfer +190 / Reilly Opelka -263
21-year-old U.S. player Reilly Opelka played great in the first round to upset 11-seed Fabio Fognini. He should keep it going versus Dominik Koepker on Wednesday. This is one of the easier plays outside of the big favorites like Mdevedev and Djokovic.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Reilly Opelka
Damir Dzumhur vs Roger Federer
- 2019 US Open Odds: Damir Dzumhur +1093 / Roger Federer -9999
Once in a while, FedEx will come up with a terrible performance. So, the real question is will he come up with a bad performance on August 28? He actually might. It took Federer 4 sets to beat Sumit Nagal. Damir Dzumhur is worth backing at the massive odds.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Damir Dzumhur
Jeremy Chardy vs Stan Wawrinka
- 2019 US Open Odds: Jeremy Chardy +222 / Stan Wawrinka -312
Wawrinka is the name tennis player and so gets the oddsmaker’s nod over Jeremy Chardy. But, Chardy has a real shot to take this. On Monday, he beat a much tougher opponent than Wawrinka beat in Hubert Hurkacz. Go with Chardy for the upset.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Jeremy Chardy
Kamil Majchrzak vs Pablo Cuevas
- 2019 US Open Odds: Kamil Majchrzak +125 / Pablo Cuevas -166
The 33-year-old Cuevas was all out to get by Jack Sock in the first round. However, he didn’t go all out as much as Kamil Majchrzak, who beat Nicolas Jarry only after an 8 set marathon did. Kamil should be tired. He’s 23-years-old, though, which means he can bounce back and play well here.
US Open Men’s Round 2 Pick: Kamil Majschrzak
