Madison Keys (8) vs. Caroline Wozniacki
Playing in Flushing Meadows clearly brings the best out of Caroline Wozniacki, with the Danish holding an outstanding 32 – 9 career record on this event. Looking now to Wozniacki’s campaign on this US Open, the highlight clearly goes to her second round victory over the 2004 champion – Svetlana Kuznetsova – with the Russian unable to deal with Caroline’s baseline consistency. After that triumph, Wozniacki extended her good results against Monica Niculescu, dismissing the Romanian by 6 – 3 6 – 1.

After Garbine Muguruza’s early loss, Madison Keys is now the main favorite to win the third quarter yet, it hasn’t been an easy journey for the American. After needing to recover from a set down on her debut against her fellow countrywoman – Alison Riske – Keys was close from elimination on the previous round against Naomi Osaka, with Madison recovering from a 1 – 5 disadvantage on the decisive set. Known for her tremendous firepower, Keys is always an unpredictable player and her stats against Osaka are a good example of that, with the American ending the match with 37 winners / 41 unforced errors.

After losing at this stage in 2015 against Serena Williams, Madison is trying to secure a place in the US Open quarterfinals for the first time in her career. Known for her terrific defensive skills, Wozniacki can create many problems to powerful players like Keys and with Caroline playing at such a high level, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Wozniacki’s betting odds by placing a bet on her set handicap.

Free Tennis Pick: Caroline Wozniacki +1.5 Set Handicap (-135)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Petra Kvitova (14) vs. Angelique Kerber (2)
After reaching the US Open quarterfinals for the first time in her career 12 months ago, Petra Kvitova is now just one win away from repeating that result. Playing in New York was never an advantage for Petra due to her asthma problems and as the Czech already mentioned this week, it’s not unusual for her to get sick when she’s playing in US. Despite that, Kvitova reaches this 4th round without losing any set and with a good 6 – 4 6 – 4 triumph on the previous round against Elina Svitolina.

After failing to become the new world no.1 in Cincinnati, Angelique Kerber is trying to do it once more, this time at the US Open. A very interesting contest was expected in the previous round against the 17 years old – Catherine Bellis – however, Kerber crushed the young American with a 6 – 1 6 – 1 triumph. Looking now to Angelique’s numbers throughout that match, the highlight clearly goes to her return to serve, with the German winning 68.42% of the points played on Bellis’ serve.

This will be the 9th career meeting between these two players with each of them winning four encounters so far.

These two players have featured some remarkable battles in the past, with a third set required in six of their previous eight meetings. Even though we wouldn’t be surprised with another third set taking place, we expect Kerber to be too solid for the Czech. As we mentioned before, Kvitova is extremely unreliable on US soil and for that reason, our recommendation is for you to add Kerber’s spread to your betting picks.

Free Tennis Pick: Angelique Kerber -2.5 (-122)
