After a very poor first half of the 2017 season, Radwanska hopes that her recent wedding might be a turning point in her year. Despite her lack of success in recent months, playing in Flushing Meadows brings great memories to Radwanska with a terrific 26-11 career record at the US Open. Adding to this, the former world No. 2 started this year’s edition with 23 winners and only 11 unforced errors in her opening match against Petra Martic.
Putintseva couldn’t have asked for a better way to start 2017 after reaching her first ever WTA final in St. Petersburg. Nevertheless, the following months haven’t been easy for the 22-year-old with Putintseva winning only 37.93% of the matches played since that tournament. She reached this stage of the competition after a 7-6, 6-3 win over the qualifier Sofya Zhuk.
This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Putintseva still looking for her first win.
In addition to Radwanska’s lead on the h2h, the Pole is also famous for playing her best tennis on the big stages with a 73.37% career record in majors. On the other hand, Putintseva holds a poor 3-7 career record in the second round of Grand Slam events. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Agnieszka’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on her set handicap.Free Tennis Pick: Radwanska -1.5 Set Handicap (-161)Best Line Offered: Pinnacle
Ons Jabeur vs. Coco Vandeweghe (20)
Regardless of Thursday’s outcome, Jabeur has already secured her career-high ranking after this tournament. Known as one of the most promising young players of her generation, the 2011 French Open Junior champion is finally living up to expectations. Besides her terrific 66.07% winning record in 2017, Jabeur is trying to book a place in the third round of a Grand Slam event for the second time this season. Adding to this, the 23-year-old started her campaign in Flushing Meadows with an easy victory against Brienne Minor.
The world No. 22 Vandeweghe trying to become the first American player other than a Williams sister to win the US Open since Lindsay Davenport in 1998. Known as one of the most powerful players in the game, the fast court conditions in New York are perfect for Coco’s game style. However, the 25-year-old was far from impressive in her first-round match against Alison Riske. Besides losing the opening set, Vandeweghe allowed four break of serves to her fellow countrywoman.
The sportsbooks expect a straightforward win from Coco with the local favorite available around -500. Despite her unquestionable quality, it’s impossible to find any value on her current odds after her shaky performance in the previous round. On the other hand, Jabeur is always a dangerous opponent and won’t go down without a fight. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add the 'over' to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this encounter.Free Tennis Pick: 'Over' 19 (-114)Best Line Offered: BetOnline
