In doing, Svitolina in many ways avenged demons of her past, when the Ukrainian crumbled to lose from 4-2 up in the deciding set in this very fourth round matchup two years ago. After winning the WTA Finals at the end of last year, it´s been a tough year for the number 5 seed, who´s been limited due to a knee injury for the majority of 2019. The Ukrainian has since kicked on well though, and will look to make it back to back major semifinals during that latter half of the year. What makes Svitolina´s current run one of the most impressive in the tournament is the fact that she´s yet to drop a set, and how dominant the victories have been. A resurgent Venus Williams was somehow flattered by a 6-4, 6-4 scoreline. The rising Ukranian star Dayana Yastremska was slaughtered 6-2, 6-0 whilst Madison Keys couldn´t even push a single service game to deuce.<br /><br />Standing in Elina´s path is another player who´s put together a mightiliy impressive run here at this year´s US Open. Not everyone would have expected to see Johanna Konta in this quarterfinal, as the 28-year old came into the tournament cold on a three match losing streak. The kind of form that saw her resurgence earlier in the year, with Rabat and Rome finals along with a Roland Garros semifinal, looked to have cooled off. However, the British number one has been dominant, reaching the fourth round losing only 13 total games across her first three matches. After blitzing past Daria Kasatkina, Margarita Gasparyan and Shuai Zang, going one step further was always going to be a challenge - facing world no. 3 Karolina Pliskova. It´s a tough matchup for Konta, losing six of their previous seven head to head matchups. This match was no easier, but the 28-year old started in excellent fashion before suddenly finding herself a set and a break down. From there, the Brit stormed to mount a comeback, finishing the tight final set by a 7-5 scoreline.<br /><br />After making the semifinal in her home Major at Wimbledon 2017, Konta fell off the planet for quite some time before her resurgence earlier this season. She´s now been able to string together three quarterfinals or better in the last three attempts however, and will be coming into this matchup confident. Konta is a sweet ballstriker and an aggressive baseliner, that loves to dictate play and move her opponents from side to side. Unfortunately for the British number one, Svitolina is very comfortable at soaking up aggression and counterpunch her way to victory. The Ukrainian has looked assured both defensively and offensively, and will be incredibly difficult to break down. What´s more, the Brit has yet to find a solution to the 24-year old´s puzzle, with the head to head telling 4-0 in the favor of Svitolina. Exuding confidence right now, backing the Ukranian to win at 1.52 is our first part of this treble.<br /><br /><a href=";a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p><em><strong>Matteo Berrettini(24) vs. Gael Monfils(13) </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Over 3.5</strong><strong> sets at 1.50</strong></em><br /><br />Perhaps a new name to some, but a more familiar to others, is the name Matteo Berrettini. The 23-year old Italian has slowly but surely risen to stardom, from a relatively unknown talent early last year to a likely household top-20 player for many years to come. An ascent that perhaps truly started as the then 22-year old took the stage against later to be finalist Dominic Thiem, in the third round of last year´s Roland Garros. After a well fought battle in that contest, Berrettini won his maiden title at high altitude in Gstaad later that July. 2019 has kicked off in excellent fashion, with the powerful Italian filling up the trophy cabinet with two more tour titles. One came on the red dirt of Budapest, the other at the grassy Stuttgart lawn - without dropping a set or even being broken to boot. The world number 21 came to Wimbledon as a bit of a dark horse, and made the last 16 before a date with the mighty Roger Federer rendered him completely powerless. After a beatdown loss, Berrettini injured his ankle in practice, and had been limited coming into the tournament. Here, the 23-year old has impressed however, coming through Richard Gasquet, Jordan Thompson, Alexei Popyrin and standout performer Andrey Rublev - making his maiden Major quarterfinal.<br /><br />Gael Monfils has long been one of the most electrifying players on tour, showcased by the infinite highlight reels of crazy passing shots, athletic retrievals and thunderous winners. A part of the game that´s long been missing from the top-10 talent had been staying healthy and focused. With both of those problems faring quite well this year, after hiring new coach Liam Smith and staying relatively healthy - the results have come. The Frenchman made the Sofia and Dubai semifinals along with a Rotterdam title early in the year, before an achilles injury halted his Indian Wells run. It would take until the Rogers Cup that the 33-year old well and truly got going again. Brutal scheduling caused by a rainout would force Monfils to withdraw from his slated semifinal against Rafael Nadal - only hours after winning a grueling three-setter against Roberto Bautista Agut. The withdrawal seemed mostly precautionary, but LaMonf did seem a bit hampered by his left ankle in a Cincinnati loss to Frances Tiafoe. Here at the US Open though, the Frenchman breezed past Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Marius Copil in straight sets, before ousting Denis Shapovalov in an epic five-set affair. After celebrating his 33rd birthday, Pablo Andujar proved no challenge and was swiftly brushed aside 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.<br /><br />This is a fantastic matchup that will pit the crushing power of Berrettini against Monfils´ athleticisism and retrieval skills. Though the pair have never met before, the Italian will certainly be able to bring the fight to this contest, having all the skills and the attitude necessary for the big occasion. After a crushing defeat against Roger Federer, Berrettini will have learned valuable lessons and look to acquit himself well in this contest. Backed by an extremely big serve and forehand combination, the 23-year old will have the tools to do just that. His french opponent in no slouch in that department either, and doesn´t lack for power himself. This is a matchup that´s expected to be a big hitting slugfest, perhaps quite similar to the five-set matchup that Monfils endured to Shapovalov in the earlier rounds. With the gifts of a top-10 player and overall pedigree, the 33-year old comes into the matchup as the worthy favorite. However, the feisty Berrettini won´t go down without a fight, and it´s tough to envisage a straight sets win for either player here. Thus, the second part of our treble is the over 3.5 sets at 1.50.<br /><br /><em><strong>Serena Williams(8) vs. Qiang Wang(18) </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Williams to win at 1.21</strong></em><br /><br />She is questioned time and time again, people wondering when her great reign will ever end. But Serena Williams proves time and time again that when fit and firing, it will take something truly special to oust her. Chasing a legendary 24th, record tying Major title along with Margaret Court, the American has come agonizingly close on many occasions. In fact, three consectuive finals have been lost, with last year´s final at this very venue being filled with controvery. Serena then attacked the chair umpire after being given a code violation, and in many ways took the moment away from the spellbinding performance of Champion Naomi Osaka. This year, injuries have been a huge problem, limiting the 37-year old to only six non-major matches prior to the Rogers Cup. The world number 11 has looked fit and firing as of late though, making back to back finals in Wimbledon and the aforementioned Cup, losing both however. At this year´s US Open, Serena has mostly rolled, defeating Maria Sharapova for the 19th consecutive times in straight sets. After a slow start, the American overcame promising countrywoman Caty McNally from a set down, and has since dispatched Karolina Muchova and Petra Martic in straight sets.<br /><br />Serena will face a new face to many of the New York home crowd, in Qiang Wang. The Chinese number one has brought much of the game that´s seen her succeed on her home continent to the Majors, making her maiden Major quarterfinal. After originally starting to play tennis due to her mother wanting her to put on some muscle, Wang made large strides in her professional career over the last couple of years. Much of that she credited to former coach, Peter McNamara:<br /><br />"He always told me how to play tennis, how to play when a big point is coming. Like 30-all, deuce, how to play these points. He says to be aggressive, positive, and no mistakes."<br /><br />Much of McNamara´s teachings were brought to the big stage in the last round, where the Chinese number 1 stood for an upset of world number 2 Ashleigh Barty. The Roland Garros champion could not get comfortable at all, and a well devised tactical gameplan from Wang saw the unforced error count soar to 39 from the Aussie´s racquet. New coach Thomas Drout said as much in a recent interview:<br /><br />"The major thing was the tactical plan," Drouet said. "If you can take Ashleigh Barty out of her comfort zone, you will have chances to win this match. She understood it and she executed it."<br /><br />Serena rolled her ankle in the middle of the second set in the matchup against Petra Martic, and the slow motion replays certainly made the injury look all the more daunting. But the 37-year old finished the match well, and practised without any repercussions last morning, so that injury shouldn´t be a concern in this matchup. Qiang Wang is on the run of her life, and has sought after being able to play against Serena most of all. However, it is difficult to see the Chinese number one being able to contend with the raw power the great American brings to the table. Towards the end of her match with Ashleigh Barty, Wang faltered and faced a total of break points before being able to close the match on the fourth match point. Nerves were very apparent, and facing a Legend of the game, one wonders how she will control them on this occasion. In the end, Serena is likely to overpower the Chinese challenger, and book her place in the semifinals. At 1.21, the American victory is our last part of this treble.</p></div></div>
