Fernando Verdasco vs. Stan Wawrinka (3)
Despite his recent poor performance in Cincinnati, Stan Wawrinka can never be underestimated, especially on a Grand Slam event where he usually produces his best tennis. Stan’s numbers throughout his career are a great example of that, with Wawrinka winning 71.26% of the matches played on Grand Slam events while his overall career record is 64.11%. However, if we look at his stats since 2014 the numbers are even more impressive, with Wawrinka winning 83.33% of the matches played in Majors, including two titles – Australian Open 2014 and Roland Garros 2015.

Known as one of the most unpredictable players on the ATP World Tour, Fernando Verdasco is far from the level presented between 2009 and 2011, when he was consistently ranked inside the top 20. Despite his successful 28 – 14 career record on this event, Verdasco only won 2 matches over the past three years in New York, with his last victory when priced as underdog occuring in 2010 against David Nalbandian. Fernando reaches this event after a poor performance in Winston-Salem against Viktor Troicki, with Verdasco wasting several leads on the decisive set.

This will be the 6th career meeting between these two players, with Verdasco leading on the h2h by 3 – 2.

Despite Verdasco’s lead on the h2h, it was Stan who won their previous encounter on a Grand Slam event – Wimbledon 2015 in straight sets. As we mentioned before, Wawrinka is a completely different player on the big stages while on the other hand, Verdasco struggles to maintain a consistent level. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Stan’s spread to your betting picks, in a match where the Suisse should get the job done in three or four sets.


Free Tennis Pick: Stan Wawrinka -4.5 (-119)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Feliciano Lopez (16) vs. Borna Coric
After a terrific performance in 2015 with Feliciano Lopez reaching the US Open quarterfinals for the first time in his career, the Spaniard is looking for another successful campaign in Flushing Meadows. As we mentioned a few months ago in our motivation article, Feliciano is a great example of a player whose motivation is much higher on the big events, with a 60.39% winning record on Grand Slam events while his overall winning record throughout his career is only 54.37%.

Known as one of the most talented young players on the ATP World Tour, Borna Coric reaches this event after a terrific campaign in Cincinnati, defeating Benoit Paire, Nick Kyrgios and Rafael Nadal. However, Coric was forced to retire from his quarterfinals contest against his fellow countryman, Marin Cilic, due to a knee injury. Even though it didn’t look a very serious injury, knee problems are always a sensitive issue, especially for a player known for his terrific baseline movement.

These two players will face each other for the first time on their careers and although Coric’s outstanding campaign in Cincinnati, he might not be at 100% for this event. Adding to this, Lopez is an extremely dangerous player on these big events, especially on fast game conditions like the ones in Flushing Meadows. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Feliciano’s betting odds by placing a bet on the Spaniard to win this contest. 


Free Tennis Pick: Feliciano Lopez -139
Best Line Offered: at BetOnline
Record: 35-17-2 +17.30
