- WTA US Open second-round action rolls along on Thursday at 11 a.m. ET in New York.
- Brett Farrenkopf previews what should be a marathon day of tennis action.
Almost every match from Wednesday’s slate was postponted until Thursday thanks to rainy conditions in New York. While that put a damper on Day 3, it makes for a marathon day of betting on Day 4, starting at 11 a.m. ET.
Make sure to keep an eye on the order of play as scheduling this many matches in one day will likely push things around quite a bit.
Iga Swiatek -115 vs. Anastasija Sevastova
Thursday, 11 a.m. ET
I’ve long been high on the 18-year-old Polish teen, Swiatek. who’s one of the more talented and bold players on Tour. I think she’s backable here — even though she’ll take on a more accomplished in Sevastova.
Swiatek served very well in Round 1, making 67% of her first serves. That’s her best mark of the year and a positive sign ahead of her second-round match. We’ll likely see some regression in that number but if she can serve in the 62% range, she can play and beat anyone on Tour.
