Despite some concerns regarding David Goffin’s physical condition, the 26-year-old continues his successful run in Flushing Meadows. Known as one of the best Hard Court players on the ATP World Tour, Goffin holds an outstanding 60.00% winning record against top 10 opponents on this surface over the last 12 months. Taking a look now at David’s campaign on this event, the Belgian reaches this stage of the competition after a five-set marathon against Guido Pella.

The 2016 US Open semifinalist – Gael Monfils – hopes that Flushing Meadows can help him rediscover top form. Despite his undeniable quality, the last months haven’t been easy for Gael with several physical problems. Adding to this, Monfils has been far from impressive throughout this tournament with a shaky performance in the previous round against Donald Young. Besides ending the match against Young with 13 double faults and 73 unforced errors, Gael allowed 14 break point chances to his opponent.

These two players will face each other for the 4th time in their careers with Monfils leading on the h2h by 2 – 1.

Despite Gael’s lead on the h2h, Goffin won their most recent encounter at the Shanghai Rolex Masters in 2016. On the other hand, the Belgian ended the match against Pella at a very high level and didn’t seem to experience any major physical problems. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Goffin to your betting picks due to the tremendous value on David’s moneyline.

Free Tennis Pick: David Goffin ML (+152)

 Philipp Kohlschreiber (33) vs. John Millman

When looking at Philipp Kohlschreiber’s numbers on Grand Slam events, the US Open is definitely the one where the German found more success throughout his career. In addition to his terrific 65.00% winning record in Flushing Meadows, the 33-year-old reached the 4th round of the US Open in three different occasions. Taking a look now at Kohlschreiber’s campaign on this event, the world no.37 didn’t drop a single set on this year’s edition with two easy wins over Tim Smyczek and Santiago Giraldo.

Regardless of this Saturday’s outcome, John Millman already secured his return to the top 200. Despite long absence due to hip injury, the Australian is slowly returning to his best level with an unprecedented apperance in the third round of the US Open. Famous for his outstanding return to serve, Millman won 37.90% of his opponents’ service games in Flushing Meadows. Adding to this, John didn’t experience any major issues in the previous round with a 6 – 1 7 – 6 6 – 1 win over Malek Jaziri.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Kohlschreiber leading on the h2h by 1 – 0 after his victory at the Moselle Open in 2015.

After so many withdrawals and upsets, Kohlschreiber is well aware that this is a great opportunity for him to reach the final stages of a Grand Slam event. On the other hand, it won’t be easy for Millman to find the answer to Philipp’s all-court game style. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Kohlschreiber’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the German to cover his set handicap.

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