US Open

TOMLJANOVIC TO BEAT LARSSON @ EVENS

Fitness concerns over Tomljanovic but if she is fit and firing then I think she will have too much power for Larsson.

BECK TO BEAT GOERGES @ 7-1 

Goerges has been in excellent form but she is wholly unreliable and will face pressure on her serve against Beck who is a crazy price here. Ok Beck struggles hugely on serve but with her return game so good and if Goerges has a slightly off day then 7-1 will look a huge price.

KONJUH TO BEAT BARTY @ 17-10

Barty has looked impressive recently but Konjuh has a lot of power in her game and although she can be a little unreliable the match is on her raquet if she plays well as she can overpower Barty

                                                   HOLD SERVE                                  BREAK SERVE

KONJUH                                  68.6%                                                 33.3%
BARTY                                     77.5%                                                 39.5%

MAIA TO BEAT VEKIC @ 6-4

Maia record on hard courts over the last 12 months has been very impressive, she has won 22 matches and lost just 7 compared to Vekic 20-12 during the same period. Both are decent on hard court and Vekic is coming back to something like the player she was when she burst onto the scene and Maia is improving all the time. I think this will be a very close match but will side with Maia as I can see no reason why she is such a big price compared to Vekic.

                                                HOLD SERVE                                     BREAK SERVE

MAIA                                     63.2%                                                     29.7%
VEKIC                                   63.2%                                                     38.7%

BLINKOVA TO BEAT VESNINA @ 9-5

Blinkova has come through her three matches here in good style and can cause an upset here as she has a very strong return of serve which will put Vesnina under huge pressure

BLINKOVA                          70.6%                                                      43.3%

WATSON TO BEAT CORNET @ 6-5

Watson likes playing in the US and although Cornet leads the head to head 2-0 I fancy Watson to be stronger on serve and put enough pressure on Cornet during the rallies with her consistency to see her come through.

WATSON                           68.6%                                                      36%
CORNET                           59.9%                                                      42.1%

GIORGI TO BEAT RYBRIAKOVA @ EVENS 

This should be a very even match with the stats very close but I just feel this match is on Giorgi's raquet as she has the powerful groundstrokes to be able to hit winners from anywhere and Rybriakova is still most at home on grass.

                                           HOLD SERVE                                       BREAK SERVE

GIORGI                            64%                                                         36.7%
RYBRIAKOVA                 67.1%                                                      35.8%

VONDROUSOVA TO BEAT KUZNETSOVA @ 9-4

Vondrousova has had a blistering season mopping up tournaments galore on the ITF circuit on all surfaces and although probably more happy on clay at the minute her record on 13 wins to 3 losses on hard courts is also very impressive as has her 22 wins to just 1 losses on indoor hard courts, playing with supreme confidence she is a great price to cause an upset here

BODGAN TO BEAT TOWNSEND @ 11-10

Townsend's movement will always be an issue and Bogdan has the skill and variation to cause her some severe problems in this match up. Both players looked in good form in their last tournaments but I fancy Bogdan to expose Townsend here and get her moving and not allow her to stand and hit those big winners

                                          HOLD SERVE                                      BREAK SERVE

BODGAN                         64.6%                                                    39.3%
TOWNSEND                   70.3%                                                    34.6%

ZAJA TO BEAT ALEXANDROVA @ 15-8 

Zaja has played well on hard courts this season and has come through qualifying here which I think gives her a slight advantage in a coin toss of a match so to be offered nearly 2-1 is a great price.

                                               HOLD SERVE                               BREAK SERVE

ZAJA                                    79.4%                                              41.2%
ALEXANDROVA                60.1%                                              34.3%
