Lucas Pouille (16) vs. Diego Schwartzman (29)

Playing in Flushing Meadows brings the best out of Lucas Pouille. In addition to his outstanding 72.73% career record on this event, Pouille is just one win away from a second consecutive appearance in the US Open quarterfinals. Despite his lack of success in the US Open Series, the 23-year-old has rediscovered top form in New York. Taking a look now at Pouille’s campaign on this year’s edition, the French reaches this stage of the competition after a 2 – 6 6 – 3 6 – 4 6 – 4 win over Mikhail Kukushkin.

Diego Schwartzman continues his sensational run in Flushing Meadows. Against all expectations, the 5’7’’ Argentinean stunned the 2014 champion and no.5 seed – Marin Cilic – to reach the round of 16 of a Grand Slam event for the first time in his career. Known as one of the best baseliners in the game, Cilic couldn’t find the answer to Schwartzman’s consistency with 44 winners and 80 unforced errors. Despite Diego’s brilliant performance in the previous round, the 25-year-old allowed 21 break point chances to Marin in the third round.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Schwartzman leading on the h2h by 1 – 0.

Despite Diego’s lead on the h2h, their previous encounter took place on clay in 2013 when Lucas was still outside the top 200. Adding to this, the fast court conditions on this event should benefit Pouille’s firepower and remarkable serve. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the French to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.

Free Tennis Pick: Lucas Pouille ML (-120)
Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

Sam Querrey (17) vs. Mischa Zverev (23)

After John Isner’s surprising defeat in the previous round, Sam Querrey is the last American player standing on the men’s competition in Flushing Meadows. After reaching the semifinals in Wimbledon, the 29-year-old is looking for another successful run in New York. Despite slow start against Radu Albot in the third round, Querrey proved too strong for the qualifier with a 4 – 6 6 – 2 6 – 4 6 – 4 win. Known as one of the best servers in the game, Sam fired an impressive average of 1.00 ace per service game in his previous three matches on this event.

Regardless of this Sunday’s outcome, Mischa Zverev already secured his return to the top 25. Playing on the big stages brings the best out of Zverev with a phenomenal 75.00% winning record on Grand Slam events in 2017. Known as one of the few serve & volley players on the ATP World Tour, Mischa didn’t drop a single set against John Isner in the previous round. Adding to this, the 30-year-old won 71.93% of the points played at the net with John unable to convert any of his three break point chances.

Despite Mischa’s brilliant performance in the previous round, Querrey should be too strong for the German. On the other hand, Sam won’t experience so many problems with Zverev’s tricky game style as Isner did. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Sam’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the American to cover his spread.

Free Tennis Pick: Sam Querrey -1.5 Set Handicap (-111)
Best Line Offered: at Heritage
