The first round of the US Open continues today and overnight, with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both in action.
Earlier in the day, Marcos Baghdatis takes on American youngster Taylor Harry Fritz and the veteran Cypriot should be able to secure a place in the next round.
Baghdatis, 32, has won four of his seven games on hard courts since reaching the second round at Wimbledon and has picked up a few notable results on the way, beating American Ryan Harrison in Washington and Jiri Vesely at Winston-Salem.
Fritz has never won a Grand Slam match in six previous attempts and although the 19-year-old has been in good form himself lately, a player with Baghdatis’s experience should be too strong.
My top bet is a Baghdatis win which pays out at 1/1.
In the women’s tournament, there is an intriguing match between two home favourites as Alison Riske is up against Coco Vandeweghe.
Vandeweghe is the heavy 1/4 favourite and she did win their most recent meeting on the grass courts of Wimbledon earlier this summer.
However, Riske has won all three previous WTA clashes between the two on hard courts, including a 2-0 success in Dubai back in February, and at 59/20 represents great value and is my top bet in the women’s event.
