Julia Goerges vs. Venus Williams (6)

For the 18th time in her career, Venus Williams reaches the 2nd round of the US Open after a 6 – 2 5 – 7 6 – 4 victory over Kateryna Kozlova in the opening round. Even though her brilliant record in Flushing Meadows, Venus was far from convincing on her debut, ending the match against Kozlova with 46 winners and 63 unforced errors. Despite being known as one of the biggest servers in the history, Venus is serving much slower than she usually does, with an average speed of 107 and 81 mph on her first and second serve, respectively.

Julia Goerges is for the first time since 2011 in the US Open 2nd round after four consecutive losses in the opening round. Known for her powerful game, Goerges can create many problems for her opponents, with the serve and forehand as the biggest weapons on her game. Looking now to Julia’s first round match, the German started her campaign with a 6 – 3 6 – 2 victory over Yanina Wickmayer, ending the match with 89.29% points won on her first serve.

This will be the second career meeting between these two players with Venus winning their previous encounter last year in Wuhan by 6 – 4 6 – 3.

A very interesting contest is expected between two players known for their firepower and even though we believe that Venus might book a place in the third round, things won’t be as easy as her betting odds suggest. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on the Over, in a match where a third set might be required.

Kristina Mladenovic vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (17)

After a slow start of the year, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova clearly raised her level since Wimbledon, with the Russian only losing to high-quality opponents since then. Known for her aggressive game style, Pavlyuchenkova is never an easy opponent to face, with the world no.18 always trying to hit the ball extremely early in order to take time from her opponents. Looking now to Anastasia’s first round match, the Russian started her campaign with a solid victory against Louisa Chirico by 6 – 1 6 – 4.

Despite her tremendous success in doubles, with Kristina Mladenovic currently ranked as world no.4, things haven’t been easy for the French in singles with a 23 – 25 record in 2016. This is a very important event for Mladenovic, who has 430 points to defend after reaching the quarterfinals last year – 29.25% of her total points. Kristina reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 4 7 – 5 triumph over Nao Hibino, ending the match with 25 winners and 25 unforced errors.

These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers, with Mladenovic winning their previous meeting four years ago at this same event.

Despite Mladenovic’s lead on h2h, this is a great opportunity for Pavlyuchenkova to revenge that loss. Anastasia’s counter punching skills are extremely effective against powerful players like Mladenovic and with the Russian performing at such a high level lately, our recommendation is for you to add Pavlyuchenkova's spread to your betting picks as the highest value play for this contest.
