2018 ATP US Open Quarterly Betting Preview: Zverev Seeks First Slam Semifinal

Aug 26, 2018 7:12 PM EDT
  • Alexander Zverev is the betting favorite (+175) to make the 2018 US Open semifinals — a round he has never reached at a major.
  • In what looks like the easiest quarter, Zverev's main competition is 2014 US Open champ Marin Cilic (+250).
  • If we get that matchup, remember that Zverev has a 5-1 career record (3-1 on hard courts) against Cilic.

Sascha Zverev had a lot of success already in his young career, but he still hasn’t made a single Grand Slam semifinal. Oddsmakers do list Sascha as the favorite to to win a relatively easy quarter, but he will have to potentially contend with former US Open champion Marin Cilic.

Cilic and Zverev aside, I can’t see many others competing for this quarter. Of all the seeded players, I think David Goffin has the next best chance — but the Belgian has not looked particularly strong since his freak eye-injury in Rotterdam earlier this year.

Let’s dive deeper into this quarter to make a better determination on Zverev’s chances of reaching his first major semifinal.
