Playing in Flushing Meadows brings the best out of Juan Martin Del Potro. Against all expectations, the 2009 US Open champion pulled off a major upset against Roger Federer in the quarterfinals. Despite some concerns regarding Del Potro’s physical condition, the Argentinean seems fully covered. Looking now at Juan Martin’s numbers in the previous round, the highlight definitely goes to his serve with Del Potro winning 81.25% of the points with his first serve. On the other hand, Federer was far from impressive with 41 unforced errors and only 64.15% of the points won at the net.

Rafael Nadal continues his quest for a third career title at the US Open. After Federer’s surprising defeat in the previous round, the 31-year-old Spaniard is now the undeniable favorite to lift the trophy in New York. Known as one of the greatest players of all time, Nadal holds a phenomenal 88.00% winning record on his previous 25 appearances in Grand Slam semifinals. Adding to this, the two-time US Open champion reaches this stage of the competition after a sensational 6 – 1 6 – 2 6 – 2 win over Andrey Rublev.

These two players know each other very well with Nadal winning 8 of their previous 13 official meetings on the ATP World Tour.

Despite Del Potro’s unquestionable quality, it won’t be easy for the Argentinean to find the answer to Nadal’s cross-court forehand. On the other hand, the Spaniard will take Del Potro’s physical condition to the limit. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the value on Rafael’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on his set handicap.

Free Tennis Pick: Rafael Nadal -1.5 Set Handicap (-133)
Best Line Offered: at Heritage

Kevin Anderson (28) vs. Pablo Carreno Busta (12)

Pablo Carreno Busta continues his sensational run in Flushing Meadows. In addition to his impressive campaign on this event, the 26-year-old reaches this stage of the competition without dropping a single set. Regardless of this Thursday’s outcome, Carreno Busta already secured a place in the top 10 for the first time in his career. Known as one of the best competitors in the game, Carreno Busta proved too strong for Diego Schwartzman in the previous round with the Spaniard winning 80% of the points when facing break point.

Kevin Anderson ended American hopes in the men’s singles after his victory over Sam Querrey in the quarterfinals. As we mentioned in previous analysis, playing in Flushing Meadows brings the best out of Anderson with the South-African winning 84.62% of the matches played on his last three appearances in New York. Looking now at Kevin’s numbers on this event, the highlight definitely goes to his service stats with the 31-year-old winning 96.50% of his service games throughout this tournament.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Anderson leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

Due to Anderson’s lead on the h2h and astonishing numbers on serve, it’s not surprising to see the South-African as the main favorite to win this match. Nevertheless, Carreno Busta is a tremendous competitor and can never be underestimated. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks since we can’t see any of these two players winning this match in straight sets.

Free Tennis Pick: Over 39 (-114)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle
