Williams vs. Sevastova

Serena Williams’ dream of becoming the fourth woman to win a Grand Slam tennis event after becoming a mother is still alive following her demolition of Karolina Pliskova in their US Open quarter-final. Landing over 70% of 1st serves in the straight-sets victory, Williams sent down 13 aces which helped contribute to a healthy 72% of all points won on 1st serve.


Starting the outright favourite in her battle with 19th seed Anastajia Sevastova, the American superstar is expected to make light work of the Latvian who has required three sets in three of her five singles matches this tournament. In that respect, it remains unlikely Sevastova will have the game to match Williams, but the manner in which she brushed aside 3rd seed Sloane Stephens last round does suggest there might be something for value-hunters in the To Win A Set market.


Tip: Williams to win the first set 6-3

Keys vs. Osaka

In the second women’s semi, 4th seed Madison Keys will battle Japan’s Naomi Osaka. In what is expected to be a close battle, the hometown hero starts favourite with her rival pushing out beyond the $2 mark. In the pair’s two previous meetings, Keys has triumphed on both occasions, however, only one of the five sets this pair have contested has been decided by three games or more. On that note, it may be worth considering the total games market in this match with Over 21.5 or Over 22.5, particularly tempting options.


Tip:  Naomi Osaka to win a set
