Playing in Flushing Meadows brings great memories to Del Potro. Besides winning the title in 2009, Del Potro holds a phenomenal 78.95% winning record throughout his career in this event. Despite his lack of success in recent weeks, the Argentinean seems to have rediscovered his form in New York with an impressive straight sets win over Roberto Bautista Agut in the previous round. Adding to this, the 28-year-old only allowed his opponents to win 4.40% of his service games.

At the age of 24, Thiem is looking for an unprecedented appearance in the quarterfinals of the US Open. Despite a slow start, the two-time French Open semifinalist proved too strong for Adrian Mannarino in the third round. Nevertheless, the game conditions in Flushing Meadows aren’t the best for Dominic’s game style. Adding to this, the Austrian has been far from impressive on serve with an average of 0.63 break points faced per game throughout this tournament.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Del Potro leading 2-0.

In addition to Del Potro’s edge over this opponent, the Austrian failed to win a single set in their two prior encounters. On the other hand, it won’t be easy for Thiem to find the answer to the Argentinean’s powerful serve and deadly forehand. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Del Potro’s moneyline to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.

Elina Svitolina (4) vs. Madison Keys (16)

The No. 4 seed Svitolina continues her quest for a first ever Grand Slam title. Known as one of the greatest competitors in the game, the 22-year-old is going through the best stretch of her career with a sensational 48-11 record in 2017. Adding to this, playing on hardcourts brings the best out of Svitolina with a 79.17% winning percentage over the last 12 months on this surface. The Ukrainian reaches this stage of the competition after a straight sets win over Shelby Rogers.

As we mentioned in our WTA U.S. Open Day 6 analysis, Keys has been far from impressive on this event. Besides losing the opening set in her third round match against Elena Vesnina, the world No. 16 allowed four breaks of serve to her opponent. Adding to this, Madison ended the match with a 0.88 winners:unforced errors ratio. Nevertheless, Vesnina couldn’t perform at a consistent level with 6 double faults, 44 unforced errors and only 10 winners.

These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers with Keys emerging victorious from their previous encounter at the Connecticut Open in 2015.

Despite Madison’s lead on the h2h, the Ukrainian is a completely different player in 2017.  Adding to this, Svitolina is a terrible matchup for the American due to her remarkable defense. So advice is for you to take advantage of the value on Elina’s tennis betting odds.
