Kei Nishikori vs Alex De Minaur
- 2019 US Open Odds: Kei Nishikori -204 / Alex De Minaur +149
Nishikori has played well to make it to the third round. He should get tested on Friday versus Alex De Minaur, though. The 20-year-old Australian has yet to hit his stride. He can upset Nishikori the same way he upset Christian Garin in Round 2.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Alex De Minaur
Denis Kudla vs Novak Djokovic
- 2019 US Open Odds: Denis Kudla +838 / Novak Djokovic -2499
Denis Kudla played great to get by Dusan Lajovic in the second round. He beat Lajovic 7-5, 7-5, 0-6, 6-3. The third set is where things went south for Kudla, but he picked himself up to take the fourth set. Too bad he faces Djoker on Friday. Novak should have little trouble sending Kudla home.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Novak Djokovic
Daniel Evans vs Roger Federer
- 2019 US Open Odds: Daniel Evans +463 / Roger Federer -833
So far, Roger Federer has showed no signs of slowing down. However, he’s lost the first set in each of his two U.S. Open matches. Daniel Evans worked too hard to get by Lucas Pouille, though. FedEx takes this.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Roger Federer
Kamil Majchrzak vs Grigor Dimitrov
- 2019 US Open Odds: Kamil Majchrzak +273 / Grigor Dimitrov -400
Favored Grigor Dimitrov won via a walkover in Round 2. He should be fresh versus Kamil Majchrzak. Kamil played 8 sets against Nicolas Jarry in the first round. In the second round, he played 6 sets against Pablo Cuevas. Dimitrov dominates.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Grigor Dimitrov
Dominik Koepfer vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
- 2019 US Open Odds: Dominik Koepfer +133 / Nikoloz Basilashvili -178
Koepfer beat Reilly Opelka in the second round. Opelka looked strong heading into that match. His opponent on Friday struggled against but got by Jenson Brooksby. Koepfer can win this as the slight underdog.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Dominik Koepfer
Feliciano Lopez vs Daniil Medvedev
- 2019 US Open Odds: Feliciano Lopez +204 / Daniil Medvedev -285
Lopez has played well during this tournament. The 37-year-old must step it up big time to take down Daniil Medvedev, though. Medvedev should bounce back with a great performance after he looked out of sorts versus Hugo Dellien. Daniil is the play.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Daniil Medvedev
David Goffin vs Pablo Carreno-Busta
- 2019 US Open Odds: David Goffin -238 / Pablo Carreno-Busta +175
Can Carreno-Busta upset Goffin the way he did Guido Pella in the first round? Not likely because David Goffin cruised to a win in his Round 2 match.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: David Goffin
Alexander Zverev vs Aljaz Bedene
- 2019 US Open Odds: Alexander Zverev -434 / Aljaz Bedene +289
This could be the tournament where Alexander Zverev announces his arrival with a major win. Or, this could be the tournament where Zverev disappoints again. Bedene heads into this off a 7 set match in Round 2. If Zverev does disappoint, it won’t be on Friday.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Alexander Zverev
Matteo Berrettini vs Alexei Popyrin
- 2019 US Open Odds: Matteo Berrettini -333 / Alexei Popyrin +231
This is an odds play. Berrettini and Popyrin are closer in skill than the odds indicate. Berrettini should win, but he’s not a -333 favorite. Popyrin gets the nod.
US Open Men’s Round 3 Pick: Alexei Popyrin
