The reason why was a left shoulder injury that Novak Djokovic was bothered by in this second round match against Juan Ignacio Londero. In quite a bit of pain, the Serb was down a break in the first set and two breaks of serve down in the second. Eventually however, a resilient Novak hung tough, and managed to win in straight sets anyway. A shoulder niggle aside, which was mostly put to rest in the comfortable victory last round vs. Denis Kudla, the world number one has looked sublime. Right now, Djokovic looks his stellar self, with nearly impenetrable defense combined with sublime play under pressure. Apart from the Londero match, the reigning Champion has yet to be broken, saving all seven of the break points faced in the third round. Many more will struggle to contend with the 32-year old, who looks set for yet another deep run at the Flushing Meadows.<br /><br />Stanislas Wawrinka has returned to the upper echelons of the Men´s game after grueling knee injuries finally forced him under the knife two years ago. Though the road to recovery has been long, and the 34-year old yet still isn´t the force of old, Wawrinka usually peaks in the Majors. After what has been an inconsistent year with a Rotterdam final as his best result, the Swiss showed up in woeful form prior to Roland Garros. Despite this, "Stanimal" powered his way through to the quarterfinal. Since, consistency has yet again been lacking, as the former world no.3 hadn´t won back to back matches in the leadup to the US Open. In wins against Jannik Sinner, Jeremy Chardy and Paolo Lorenzi, Wawrika still isn´t playing his best tennis, but is finding ways to get through. That sort of tennis is one that the 3-time Major winner needs to find, to be able to contend with the force of nature that is Novak Djokovic in the Best of 5 format.<br /><br />Though still not playing his best tennis, Stanislas Wawrinka has been able to routinely find his very peak against Novak Djokovic in the Majors. Their head to head record in these Best of 5 set tousles stands at 3 victories each, the latest one being the final at this very venue. In that matchup, the Swiss reigned supreme in four sets to win the US Open title. Notably, none of these six affairs have ended with a straight set winner, with four of them going the distance. Playing Novak Djokovic in the Majors is a different animal, and the Serb will impose his tour leading defensive and return skills upon Wawrinka. However, the 34-year old knows Novak´s game inside out after 27 head to head matchups. Played as the last match on Arthur Ashe tonight, expect the slower conditions to help the Swiss have time to move around court and position himself to hit winners. This match seems unlikely to end in a rout, and at 1.82, we back the over 3.5 sets as a result for our first part of this treble.</p><h2><strong>Qiang Wang(18) vs. Ashleigh Barty (2) </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Barty </strong><strong>-1.5 sets at 1.70</strong></h2><p><br />Qiang Wang has never been at this stage before in a Major tournament, but the Chinese player is an extremely capable opponent. Just a few years back, Wang was mostly plying her trade in her home continent of Asia, playing smaller ITF and WTA events. She´s since improved by leaps and bounds to peak at a career high rating of 14 this year. Much of Wang´s journey has been down to the guidance of coach Peter McNamara, but they split early this year and McNamara has since tragically passed away from cancer. This season has been an inconsistent one for the Chinese player, unable to match her stellar end to 2018. To end last season, the 27-year old ripped off five straigtht semifinal or final appearances to end 2018 ranked top 20. Wang´s best result this year isn´t as stellar, making the Indian Wells quarterfinal. However, the world number 14 played well in New York in the week prior to this event, and should have gone to the final had she not capitulated against Camilla Giorgi. Though the opposition hasn´t been sublime, a fourth rond berth is a first for the Chinese player, and she will be hoping to go one further here.<br /><br />Ashleigh Barty has struggled for her best tennis as of late, after taking the world by storm to win the Roland Garros title - claiming the world number 1 ranking in the process. The Aussie has been a meteoric riser this year, claiming the Indian Wells title prior to her maiden Major triumph, and much was expected of the 23-year old entering the grass season. As Barty´s favorite surface is actually grass, the clay title came as a surprise to many, and she entered the favorite to win Wimbledon. Her crafty slice and varied game couldn´t take the Aussie past the round of 16 though, where she was upset by Alison Riske. In the leadup to the US Open, the 23-year old has mostly been labouring hard to win her maches, finding a way to victory despite not at her best. Barty has been steadily improving since a first set wobble against Zarina Diyas in the opening match here though, and hasn´t dropped a set since.<br /><br />Though Wiang Wang is a great mover and hits a clean ball off both wings, she doesn´t have the necessary firepower one needs to break through the Barty defenses. In the pair´s two previous head to head matchups, it has been the Aussie that´s come through in straight sets on both occasions. The world number 2 also displayed some of her best tennis in quite some time to take down the feisty Maria Sakkari in the last round. A performance that will give her confidence coming into this one. In this matchup, Barty will need to take control of the points and not allow Wang to get balls in her strike zone, and she´s shown to have all the tools necessary to do just that. It might be relatively close, but a 2-0 win is the expected outcome.</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><h2><strong>Taylor Townsend vs. Bianca Andreescu(15) </strong><strong>– </strong><strong>Andreescu to win at 1.23</strong></h2><h2> </h2><p>Taylor Townsend has surely been the story of the tournament thus far, with the 23-year old taking her game to an entirely different level throughout this year´s campaign. Primarily plying her trade on the ITF and Challenger tours, Townsend had to qualify for the main draw, and did so by coming back from a set down in her last two matches. In the main draw, the American once again had to stage a comeback vs. Katerina Kozlova, but the most impressive one came in the second round. Facing up against this year´s Wimbledon champion and world no. 4, Simona Halep, few gave the 23-year old a chance. After losing the first set convincingly (6-2), Townsend decided to make a change. She had realised she wouldn´t be able to penetrate the Romanian´s elite defenses from the baseline, and started coming forward to the net. In fact, the American came to the net over 100 times in the match, a committment that paid dividends. After being broken serving for the match and subsequently facing a match point at 5-6, Townsend didn´t crumble. She instead closed out the epic win in front of a delirious home crowd in a final set tiebreak. The 23-year old then closed out Sorana Cirstea in straight sets to set up another tough assignment.<br /><br />Townsend´s serve and volley style will be under a stern assessment all match long, facing the tour´s third best returner in Bianca Andreescu. Winning a whopping 47% of return points, only Marketa Vondrousova and Simona Halep can boast about more proficient returning this year. The Canadian sensation continues her winning run, moving her hard court record to a staggering 38-4 this season - taking down former world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets. In what has been a sensational year crowned with 3 titles, the 19-year old shows no signs of slowing down. Very few have really been able to contend with the mix of athleticism, power and mental fortitude that Bianca brings to the table. Able to win a match in a multitude of ways, both by overpowering, outsmarting or outlasting her opponents, the Canadian is quickly becoming one of the best players on the entire tour. Holding the best hard court record on tour, she´s a nightmare to face on this surface, and handles most player types admirably. Power hitters, counterpunchers and slice and dicers alike have gone down to Andreescu, who possesses very few weaknesses.<br /><br />Townsend´s game has been working incredibly well thus far, even against an elite counterpuncher such as Simona Halep. Carried by the home crowd, the American will once again be filled with belief. But Andreescu usually has no problems dealing with the aggressive type, and will pin Taylor back with powerful, accurate groundstrokes. It´s unquestionably the Canadian who holds a sizable advantage from the baseline, and even if the American successfully makes it to the net - the 19-year old phenom can easily find the angles for a passing shot. Facing up against such a complete player will be incredibly tough, one who is punishing every short ball, whilst being able to beguilewith drop shots and lobs. In the end, Andreescu has all the tools to defuse the Townsend artillery, and should prevail. At 1.23, Andreescu to win is our final selection of this treble.</p></div></div>
