Juan Martin Del Potro (WC) vs. David Ferrer (11)
Known as one of the greatest competitors in the history of the game, David Ferrer’s golden days are long gone with the Spaniard currently outside top 10. At the age of 34, David no longer has that outstanding baseline consistency, with Ferrer ending his previous match against Fabio Fognini with 26 winners / 49 unforced errors. Despite that, Ferrer still found a way to emerge victorious from his 2nd round match against Fognini, defeating the Italian by 6 – 0 4 – 6 5 – 7 6 – 1 6 – 4.

Due to his low ranking, the 2009 US Open champion – Juan Martin Del Potro – needed a wild card to play this event’s main draw. Del Potro is slowly returning to his best level and after a remarkable campaign in Rio de Janeiro, with Juan Martin winning the silver medal, the Argentinean is looking for another successful journey on his favorite tournament. Del Potro reaches this stage of the competition after a terrific 7 – 6 6 – 3 6 – 2 triumph over the 19th seed – Steve Johnson.

This will be the 10th career meeting between these two players with Ferrer leading on the h2h by 6 – 3.

Despite Ferrer’s lead on the h2h, these two haven’t met since 2013, with Del Potro winning their previous encounter in Wimbledon 2013. Even though both players are far from their prime, the 2009 US Open champion is clearly at a higher level than Ferrer. The Argentinean’s powerful baseline game should be too much for a very erratic Ferrer and for that reason, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Del Potro's betting odds by placing a bet on his spread

Free Tennis Pick: Juan Martin Del Potro -5 (-128)

Daniel Evans vs. Stan Wawrinka (3)
After an outstanding campaign in 2013, Daniel Evans is once again in the US Open third round after a four-set victory over Alexander Zverev. It has been a great year for Evans, with the British reaching his career high ranking a few weeks ago as world no.60. Known for his all-around game, Evans can mix things very well with powerful groundstrokes and a tricky slice. Looking now to his numbers against Zverev in the previous round, his mental strength was one of the keys to his success, with the British converting 42.86% of his break point chances and saving 78.57% of the chances Zverev had on his serve.

As it usually happens in the first rounds of Grand Slam events, Stan Wawrinka finds a way to win his matches in straight sets without playing his best tennis, which is truly amazing. When looking to Stan’s previous results at the US Open when priced as heavy favorite, one of the most impressive stats is the amount of tie-breaks that he plays. Since 2014, Wawrinka played 9 matches in Flushing Meadows when priced below -200 with an average of 1.22 tie breaks per match.

These two players will face each other for the first time in their careers and even though Stan is the undeniable favorite, this might be a closer match than the odds suggest. As we mentioned before, Stan is far from convincing when playing as a heavy favorite and with Evans playing at such a high level, we can only expect a close contest here. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to add to your betting picks a special bet that clearly presents some good value for this match – Tie Break in the Match? Yes.

Free Tennis Pick: Tie Break in the Match? Yes (-120)
