The French Open champion – Jelena Ostapenko – continues her sensational run in 2017. At the age of 20, the Latvian became the youngest player to win a Grand Slam event since Maria Sharapova in 2006. Despite her lack of success in the US Open Series, Ostapenko loves to compete on the big stages with an outstanding 88.24% winning record on majors this season. Looking now at Jelena’s campaign in Flushing Meadows, the world no.12 reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 4 6 – 4 win over Sorana Cirstea.

After a brilliant start to 2017, with her first ever WTA title in Charleston, the last months haven’t been easy for Daria Kasatkina. Despite her undeniable talent, Kasatkina’s game style is not as effective on faster conditions as it is on clay. In addition to her poor 50.00% winning record on Hard Court this season, the 20-year-old Russian lost 71.43% of her last seven matches against top 50 opponents on this surface.

This will be the 4th career meeting between these two players with Ostapenko leading on the h2h by 2 – 1.

Despite Kasatkina’s recent win over this opponent at the Volvo Car Open final, the fast court conditions in Flushing Meadows should benefit Jelena on this match-up. On the other hand, the Latvian is known for playing her best tennis on the major events. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Ostapenko’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the French Open champion to book a place in the US Open 4th round.

Elena Vesnina (17) vs. Madison Keys (15)

Playing in North America brings great memories to Elena Vesnina with an outstanding 66.67% winning record over the last 12 months on this region. Moreover, the 31-year-old won the biggest title of her career at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells earlier this season. After three prior defeats in the US Open 3rd round, Vesnina is trying to go a step further on this year’s edition in Flushing Meadows. Known as one of the most aggressive returners in the game, the Russian won 55.60% of her opponents’ service games on this event.

Madison Keys continues her quest for a first ever Grand Slam title. After a brilliant campaign in 2016, the last months haven’t been easy for the American with several physical problems. Nevertheless, Madison is slowly returning to her best level with a terrific 88.89% winning record in the US Open Series. Adding to this, the 22-year-old won her first career title in her home country at the Bank of the West Open in Stanford. Despite her remarkable results in recent weeks, Keys was far from impressive in the previous round against Tatjana Maria with an average of 1.89 unforced errors per game.

These two players are no strangers with Keys winning their previous two encounters on the WTA Tour.

Despite Madison’s lead on the h2h, it’s impossible to find any value on her current price. In addition to her inconsistent performance in the previous round, Vesnina is always a dangerous opponent. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Elena’s spread to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.

Free Tennis Pick: Elena Vesnina +5 (-108)
