US Open Tennis Betting: Goran's Day 11 Tips

Djokovic vs Youzhny

Youzhny has a good game and has beaten some good players along the way, but he’d have to play out of his mind to beat Djokovic here. On a good day, Youzhny could win a set and he's in good form so it’s worth backing him to do that – but that will be as good as it will get for him.

Murray vs Wawrinka

It will be a similar story when Wawrinka takes on reigning champion Andy Murray, who will not concede more than a set to the Swiss. Murray may not be in the formidable form that saw him win Wimbledon, but I cannot see it being a tight match and will back the Scot to win this 3-1.

Serena Williams vs Na Li

Na Li has done well to progress to the last four after last year’s disappointment against Laura Robson, but it will be the end of the road when she faces Serena tonight. It will be a simple straight sets win for the American, and she should wrap it up quickly.


Outright markets

Despite Rafael Nadal’s favourable draw, my outright bets remain the same. I expect Djokovic to lift the trophy and, at 2.75 to win, he represents good value.

I’m also sticking with my prediction of a Serena Williams vs Azarenka final, with Williams prevailing at 1.37.

Best bets

Back Djokovic to beat Youzhny 3-1 at 4.10.

Back Murray to beat Wawrinka 3-1 at 3.50.

Back Serena Williams to beat Na Li in under 83.5 minutes at 1.87.
