US Open preview and odds

We are down to the last four in the men’s singles at Flushing Meadows and three of the leading contenders in our US Open odds preview are in action in Friday’s semi-final matches.

Most of the British interest this weekend will be on the women’s final and we have previewed Emma Raducanu’s clash with Leylah Fernandez.

Both of our predictions for the women’s semi-finals were winners at 21/20 and now we have a tip for both men’s semi-finals in our tennis betting tips today.

Friday’s tennis betting tips

Here are our tennis tips today:

Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev

Djokovic continued his quest for grand slam number 21 when repeating his 3-1 Wimbledon final victory over Matteo Berrettini in the quarter-finals.

Having lost the first set 7-5, the Serbian reeled off three sets on the bounce to book his place in the last four and the number one seed is the favourite for this clash as he looks for a fourth US Open crown.

He meets the number four seed Zverev, who has been imperious form of late, claiming gold at Tokyo 2020 and lifting the Western and Southern Open before arriving in New York.

The 23-year-old has only lost one set at Flushing Meadows and brushed aside Lloyd Harris in straight sets, on court for just over two hours, in the last round.

Djokovic was a 3-1 winner when they met in the quarters of the Australian Open earlier this year, but Zverev got his revenge when coming from behind to eliminate the 20-time grand slam winner at the semi-final stage of the Olympic Games.

If anyone can upset the world number one it’s Zverev and we can see this game going all the way to the wire.

With that in mind, over 39.5 games makes plenty of appeal in our tennis betting tips.

Daniil Medvedev vs Felix Auger-Aliassime

Number two seed Medvedev has been in imperious form at Flushing Meadows and accounted for Botic Van De Zandschulp in four sets in the quarter-finals.

A finalist here in 2019, the Russian has continued his love affair with the New York venue and did not lose a set in his first four contests.

He has also won his matches in rapid time and could have more left in the tank than most as we enter the business end of the competition.

Similar can be said of Auger-Aliassime, who will have appreciated his last eight clash with Carlos Alcaraz ending early due to the Spaniard’s second-set retirement.

This is the Canadian’s first appearance in a grand slam semi-final, following on from an impressive run to the last eight at Wimbledon earlier in the summer.

However, the 21-year-old is very much the underdog as he comes up against an opponent at the peak of his powers.

Medvedev can do the business in four in our tennis tips today.
