Qiang Wang vs. Serena Williams
- 2019 US Open Odds: Qiang Wang -340 / Serena Williams -526
Serena Williams has played like the old Serena at the 2019. U.S. Open. She lost a set to Cat McNally in Round 2. However, outside of losing a set to McNally, Serena has dominated. She beat Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-1 in the first round, Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-2 in the third round, and Petra Martic 6-3, 6-4 in the Round of 16.
Williams faces her toughest opponent yet when Qiang Wang steps onto the court on Tuesday. Wang has been virtually untouched in her four matches. She dominated Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 6-4 in the Round of 16. Wang shouldn’t beat Serena Williams on Sep. 3, but the odds are too good to pass up. Serena has had a tendency to fall flat later on in tournaments. If she falls flat versus Qiang, she’ll bow out of the U.S. Open before the semifinals.
US Open Women’s Pick: Qiang Wang
Johanna Konta vs. Elina Svitolina
- 2019 US Open Odds: Johanna Konta +137 / Elina Svitolina -185
Johanna Konta hopes to do to Elina Svitolina what she did to Karolina Pliskova, beat her favored opponent with grit. Pliskova had Konta on the ropes after winning the first set 7-6 (7-1). Anybody who saw that 7-1 set would have dumped on Katerina to end it in the next set. Johanna fought back and turned the tables on Pliskova.
Things should be tougher versus Elina Svitolina. Elina was the underdog versus Madison Keys in the Round of 16. All she did was beat Keys 7-5, 6-4. Svitolina hasn’t lost a set in 4 matches during the U.S. Open. She should get past Johanna Konta.
US Open Women’s Tennis Pick: Elina Svitolina
Donna Vekic vs Belinda Bencic
- 2019 US Open Odds: Donna Vekic +136 / Belinda Bencic -181
Bencic upset Naomi Osaka in the U.S. Open Round of 16. Naomi had been playing great. Bencic beat her rather easily, 7-5, 6-4. Her opponent, Donna Vekic, beat Julia Georges 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 6-3.
Bencic’s getting the love because she beat Osaka. Vekic has played as well in this tournament as Belinda, though. Donna Vekic is the better play because Bencic’s being overplayed after knocking out the 1-seed.US Open Women’s Tennis Pick: Donna Vekic
Elise Mertens vs Bianca Vanessa Andreescu
- 2019 US Open Odds: Elise Mertens +150 / Bianca Vanessa Andreescu -204
The higher-seeded player, Bianca Andreescu dropped a set to Taylor Townsend in the Round of 16. She bounced back with a 6-2 third set win. She’s expected to easily handle Elise Mertens on Wednesday. That might not happen.
Mertens hasn’t dropped a set in 4 matches. She’s playing as good, or better, than any other player left on the women’s side. Elise Mertens most definitely can upset Bianca Vanessa Andreescu. Mertens also offer great odds. Back with confidence.US Open Women’s Tennis Pick: Elise Mertens
