  • The 2019 US Open Semifinals take place on Friday at 4 p.m. ET (ESPN) with Grigor Dimitrov vs. Daniil Medvedev and then Rafael Nadal vs. Matteo Berrettini.
  • Sean Zerillo previews both matches and provides betting strategies for Friday evening:

A slam semi-final with only one member of the Big Three in action? A rarity in this era of men’s tennis, as one of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal have won 16 of the past 19 ATP slams – with Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka sneaking in there for the other three.

Nadal is looking to extend the current streak of Big Three dominance to 12 straight slams, and he’s currently listed at -371 in the futures market to capture his fourth US Open and 19th slam title.

Will Matteo Berrettini test Rafael Nadal on Friday? And who might Nadal face in the finals if he does advance?
