The five-time U.S. Open champion Federer continues his quest for a 20th Grand Slam title. Despite slow start, the 36-year-old seems to have found his rhythm with straight-set victories over Feliciano Lopez and Philipp Kohlschreiber. As usual, Federer’s serve proved decisive for his success with the Swiss winning 82.67% of the points played on his serve in the previous round against Kohlschreiber. Roger ended the match with an outstanding 1.95 winners/unforced errors ratio.

Del Potro pulled off one of the greatest recent comebacks anywhere in the previous round against Dominic Thiem. After winning only 3 games in the first two sets of the match, the 2009 U.S. Open champion emerged victorious in a five-set battle after saving two match points with two aces. Despite his incredible victory over the Austrian, it won’t be easy for Del Potro to be in his best physical condition on this match. Besides spending more than three and a half hours on the court, the Argentinean has been battling with illness in the last couple of days.

This will be the 22nd career meeting between these two players with Federer leading 16-5.

As the h2h suggests, Federer is far from an easy matchup for the Argentinean. Plus Del Potro may not be at his best physical condition for this match. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Federer’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the Swiss to cover his spread on this match.

Madison Keys (15) vs. Kaia Kanepi (q)

At the age of 22, Keys booked a place in the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the first time ever. After a slow start to 2017, the American is going through one of the best moments in her career with a 90.91 winning percentage in the US Open Series. Nevertheless, Keys was on the brink of elimination in the previous round with Elina Svitolina unable to finish a 4-2 lead in the decisive set. Adding to this, the world No. 16 ended the match against the Ukrainian with 46 winners and 52 unforced errors.

Against all expectations, Kanepi returns to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event for the first time since June 2013 at the All England Club. Despite her battles with Epstein-Barr, the former world No. 15 is enjoying great success in Flushing Meadows. On the other hand, New York is a very special city for Kanepi with the 32-year-old winning 67.65% of the matches played throughout her career on this event. Taking a look now at The player from Estonia reaches this stage of the competition after a 6-4, 6-4 win over Daria Kasatkina.

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

Despite Madison’s brilliant results in recent weeks, it’s impossible to find any value on her current price. Adding to this, Kanepi is always a very dangerous opponent and is also the most experienced of the two at this level. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Kaia’s spread to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this match.
