After what has been a labouring mid part of the season following his Sydney title, the Aussie found form out of nowhere to win Atlanta. De Minaur certainly looks to have carried that good form with him to this year´s US Open, with a four set win over Pierre-Hugues Herbert and an impresive straight sets victory over the aforementioned Chilean. After making the third round last year, and falling to 2014 winner Marin Cilic in five tight sets, can the 20-year old improve on last year´s result?<br /><br />It´ll certainly be a tough task, as the Aussie is scheduled to face the Japanese number 7 seed, Kei Nishikori. Historically, Nishikori has been one of the borderline elite competitors for most titles, but unable to best the "big three" opponents he often runs into come the quarterfinal stage. A combination of multiple injuries, and a tendency to get dragged into five-set affairs against lesser challenging oppision has certainly contributed. We´ve seen a much more economical Kei in the Majors since Wimbledon though, where he came through the first four rounds for the loss of only one set. In the first two rounds here, the Japanese ace has only lost one set.<br /><br />Both De Minaur and Nishikori play a similar style of tennis, taking the ball early on the rise to take time away from their opponents. Neither player has a particularly strong serve, but are excellent movers around the court and clean ballstrikers. The thing here is, Nishikori just does everything that De Minaur does, but better. US Open has also traditionally been the Japanese player´s most successful Major, and he´s made the semifinals or better in three of his last four tournaments. With the conditions here suiting Kei´s game to a T as well, expect him to prevail against the rising Aussie. At 1.50, Nishikori to win is our first part of this treble.</p><p><em><strong>Sofia Kenin(20) vs. Madison Keys(10) </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Keys </strong><strong>to win at 1.</strong><strong>56</strong></em><br /><br />Sofia Kenin has quickly established herself as one of the most prominent young players in the game, and there are very few that are capable of beating her when in top form. Making headway last year, ending the year inside the top 50, the 20-year old American has improved considerably this year, with the Hobart and Mallorca titles as two crowning achievements. The feisty counterpuncher has the toolset to outlast mostly anyone on court, and took out Serena Williams at Roland Garros and took a set in defeat to eventual Champion Ashleigh Barty. Back on home soil, Kenin has made back to back semifinals, losing to both eventual Champions Bianca Andreescu and Madison Keys prior to this year´s tournament.<br /><br />Madison Keys is finally back to playing her best tennis, after injuries and struggles for form has seen her lack consistency over the past year or so. The 2017 finalist had previously impressed only in short bursts, winning Charleston and making the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. Back on home soil, the American found herself reeling in the unforced errors, and controlling her aggression to win the Cincinnati title. Currently matching her career best in riding an 8-match winning streak, the 24-year old has started this US Open campaign well. Though starting slowly in her first two matches, Keys has found her best tennis towards the end of the first sets and never looked back, rifling down Doi Misaki and Zhu Lin 6-0 and 6-1 respectively in the second set.<br /><br />In what is a rematch of the recent Cincinnati semifinal where Keys won 7-5, 6-4, it´s the older American that has impressed most thus far. Kenin has had to battle hard to take down former semifinalist CoCo Vandeweghe and struggled in the first set against Laura Siegemund. While the 20-year old will certainly be a stern test, Keys has been zoned in this week, with her eyes on the prize. The number 10 seed always brings her best tennis to Flushing Meadows, and has made it to the second week four years in a row. In the last two years, only the Champions have defeated Madison, Sloane Stephens winning the final in 2017 and Naomi Osaka defeating her enroute to the title in last year´s semifinal. Keys has an absolute rifle of a forehand, with the average speed even higher than most male players on tour. This match will be on the 24-year old´s racquet, and at 1.56 Keys to win is our second part of this treble.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p><em><strong>Roger Federer(3) vs. Daniel Evans </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Federer -1.5 sets at 1.28 </strong></em></p></div><p>Roger Federer has won many titles during his illustrious career. But perhaps the ones he hasn´t won may still be haunting the 38-year old at the start of this year´s US Open. After holding two Championship points on serve against Novak Djokovic in the recent Wimbledon final, Federer cracked and capitulated. In the run up to the final Major of the year, the elegant Swiss played only two matches, and lost horribly to Andrey Rublev in Cincinnati. The start of US Open has been very shaky indeed, with uncharacteristically poor play being displayed. It´s also the first time in a Major since back in 2017 that the world number 3 has dropped sets in his opening two matches, committing close to 20 unforced errors to drop the opener against Sumit Nagal and Damir Dzumhur.<br /><br />He would most certainly not want to start slowly yet again as he faces up against Daniel Evans, who pushed him hard at this year´s Australian Open in a 7-6(5), 7-6(3), 6-3 defeat. Evans was notably banned for 12 months following taking cocaine, but has come back playing well, reaching the Delray Beach final in February. On the 29-year old´s most favored grassy lawns, he picked up two challenger titles along with a Wimbledon round 3 appearance. Employing a crafty slice and dice game backing up his superb movement, Evans has been able to pick up back-to-back four set victories against two Frenchmen in Adrian Mannarino and Lucas Pouille to start his US Open campaign.<br /><br />Roger Federer has certainly not started well in his matches, but elevated his level considerably in the sets to follow. The Swiss picked Daniel Evans as a practice partner following the Australian Open meeting and will know he cannot afford to start slowly yet again. Though a very talented player, Evans lacks the natural weapons to hurt the great Swiss, and will find the going tough against a player he´s 0-8 in sets against in three career meetings. Even if Federer does get off to a slow start, it´s tough to see the Brit being able to contend for much more than perhaps a set. At 1.28, Federer -1.5 sets is our final part of this treble.</p></div>
