BRITISH women’s No.2 Jo Konta broke new ground at the US Open on Saturday and today it’s Serena Williams attempting to close in on history.
Konta secured a brilliant win over 18th seed Andrea Petkovic to reach the last 16 for the first time and join world No.1 Williams who aims to keep her calender Grand Slam tilt on track against fellow American Madison Keys.
Serena – who had to rally from a set down to overcome Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the previous round – is 3-16 favourite while Keys is 5-1 at Sportingbet.
Their only previous meeting was a 2-0 Williams win at this year’s Australian Open semis and a repeat scoreline pays 11-17 at Marathonbet.
Serena’s sister Venus is also in last-16 action today against Anett Kontaveit while the men’s matches include Rafa Nadal’s conqueror Fabio Fognini versus Feliciano Lopez and defending champ Marin Cilic taking on Jeremy Chardy.
In Formula One’s Italian Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton starts from pole for the 11th time in 12 races and is 4-11 at Stan James for his seventh victory of the season.
There’s also the likes of rugby league, golf and cycling on the go today so let’s hear your tips and thoughts and good luck with your bets.
