ROUND two of the men’s singles is set to complete on Thursday after a packed day three saw 87 matches completed and a few big names tumble out of the US Open.
I managed to find three odds-against winners from my five bets completed on Wednesday when Radu Albot won a rollercoaster affair against Yen-Hsun Lu in five sets while there was a much easier winner for the no tie breaks bet in the Sam Querrey match.
No breakers was also a winner in Mikhail Youzhny’s clash with Blaz Kavcic but I didn’t get any joy with Maximilian Marterer or Evgeny Donskoy.
My view that Alexander Zverev’s five-set record and stamina doubts made him too short outright proved correct when the German was beaten by Borna Coric but I lost Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and almost Lucas Pouille in our outrights.
Zverev’s defeat raises my hopes on Sam Querrey, who looks in decent form, in that quarter and the bottom half of the draw looks more open than ever, with Marin Cilic now as short as 2-1 to make the final from quarter four.
But it’s all about the top half of the draw on Thursday, as round two completes, and once again there’s value today on no tie breaks, with the likelihood of breakers being less in this round than it was in round one.
