Written by on September 10, 2018

Your US Open champions were Japan’s Naomi Osaka on the women’s side – although that was largely overshadowed by the incredibly selfish actions by loser Serena Williams – and Novak Djokovic for the men. Because this is the week after a major, there’s not a heck of a lot of tennis action, including not a single tournament on the men’s side. Here’s what to look for, though, and check back for the upcoming tennis odds at MyBookie.

Expert Tennis Betting Picks of the Week – September 10th

Coupe Banque Nationale

This WTA event is from Quebec and played indoors on carpet courts. It’s the 26th staging of this tournament and takes place at PEPS de l’Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada.The winner last year was Belgium’s Alison van Uytvanck as she rallied from a set down to beat Timea Babos for her first career WTA title. Van Uytvanck was the No. 7 seed and beat the No. 3 Babos by scores of 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. Van Uytvanck rolled through the final set as she broke serve three times and dropped just five total points behind her own serve.After opening with two three-set victories, Babos won both her quarterfinal and semifinal in straight sets, while van Uytvanck was only taken to three sets once, in her opening victory over Carol Zhao. Kirsten Flipkens was the only Belgian to have previously won this tournament, beating Lucie Hradecka in 2012. Babos did win the doubles title with Andrea Hlavackova as they defeated Canadians Bianca Andreescu and Carson Branstine 6-3, 6-1.The best players in the field are Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, rising stars Aryna Sabalenka and Danielle Collins and Petra Martic. The tournament’s 2013 champion Lucie Safarova and Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig will also be on hand. Sabalenka is the top seed with Martic No. 2 and Puig No. 3. Van Uytvanck isn’t in the field.Sabalenka, who is only 20 years old, made it to the final at Eastbourne, defeating Julia Goerges (13), Elise Mertens (15), Karolina Pliskova (7) and Agnieszka Radwanska (31) on her way. She also got the better of reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens in their Fed Cup duel.

Davis Cup Semifinals

The semifinals of the team Davis Cup event run from Sept. 14-16 with France hosting Spain on one side and Croatia hosting the USA in the other. It’s the ninth all-time Davis Cup meeting between France and Spain but the first since 2011.Two of the last three meetings between Spain and France have been in semifinals, with Spain winning both – in Alicante in 2004 and Cordoba in 2011 – before going on to win the title on each occasion. Spain leads the head-to-head 6-2, but France won the last meeting between the two teams on French soil in Clermont-Ferrand in 2010.Croatia has won all four of the previous meetings vs. the USA in 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2016, with Zeljko Krajan’s men completing a comeback from 0-2 down in their most recent clash in the quarterfinals in Portland two years ago. The USA is looking to reach the Davis Cup Final for the first time since winning the title in 2007, while 2005 champion Croatia is looking to reach the final for the second time in three years and the third time overall. Croatia’s top player is world No. 7 Marin Cilic, while the USA’s is No. 18, Jack Sock.Marin Cilic and Croatia should be one of your Tennis Betting Picks of the Week.The Americans moved on by defeating Belgium 4-0 in Nashville.

The Americans hold the record for consecutive wins, having notched 17 victories without defeat between 1968 and 1973. USA won the inaugural Davis Cup back in 1900.Croatia beat Kazakhstan in the World Group quarterfinals in Varazdin. Cilic starred for the hosts, winning both of his singles matches for the loss of a total of just eight games, either side of a four-set doubles victory for Ivan Dodig and Nikola Mektic.
