At the age of 25, Dzumhur is going through the best moment in his career. Besides reaching his first ATP World Tour Final in Winston-Salem, the No. 1 player from Bosnia is currently at a career-high ranking as the world No. 56. Despite his sensational run in North Carolina, Dzumhur is far from a hardcourt expert. Adding to this, Damir only won 16.67% of the matches played throughout his career at the US Open. On the other hand, it’s never easy for the players who make a deep run in Winston-Salem to present their best tennis in Flushing Meadows.

After a brilliant start to 2017, the last months haven’t been easy for Cuevas with the Uruguayan losing his last five matches on the ATP Tour. Known as one of the best clay-court players in the game, Cuevas can also compete at a very good level on hardcourts with his apperance in the quarterfinals of Indian Wells as a perfect example of that. Despite his lack of success in recent weeks, the 31-year-old played at a very good level in his defeat against Jan-Lennard Struff in Winston-Salem.

This should be a very interesting contest between two exceptional baseline players. Despite Dzumhur’s good results in recent weeks, Cuevas is definitely the better player. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the tremendous value on Pablo’s tennis betting odds to win this match.

Cedrick-Marcel Stebe vs. Nicolas Kicker

Regardless of Tuesday’s outcome, Cedrik-Marcel Stebe already secured his return to the top 100 for the first time since August 2012. Known as one of the most promising young players of his generation, the former junior world No. 6 is slowly returning to his best level after more than two years away from competition due to a hip injury. Taking a look now at Stebe’s campaign in Flushing Meadows, the 26-year-old German reaches this stage of the competition without dropping a set in qualifying.

After two consecutive defeats in the qualifying, Kicker will make his debut in the main draw of the US Open. Known as a terrific clay-court player, the Argentinean rarely plays outside the red dirt. Looking at Kicker’s numbers throughout his career, the 25-year-old only played 10 matches on hardcourts. Adding to this, Nicolas only won 30.00% of those matches with just one encounter played throughout his career in the ATP Tour on this surface.

Due to Kicker's ’ lack of experience on hardcourts, it’s impossible to trust on the Argentinean on this surface. On the other hand, Stebe is going through a great moment in his career with three wins already under his belt in qualifying. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add the German’s spread to your betting picks since we expect a straightforward win from Stebe.
