As these players go head-to-head at the US Open’s Grandstand Court, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Sofia Kenin to win @ 8/13 (1.62)

We would like to start by pointing out that the last time these players met was at the French Open three years ago, and Sofia Kenin won that match in three sets. That said, Ana Bogdan has been going through a rough patch lately, as she has lost three matches in a row. By comparison, Sofia Kenin has fared relatively better than today’s opponent; as she won five of her last six matches, defeating Coco Gauff and Xinyu Wang in that stretch. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that the American player will reign supreme at the end of this match.

Over 21.5 total games @ 17/20 (1.85)

It may interest you to know that these players met on two occasions, and both clashes ended in three sets, going comfortably over 25 games. Bearing that in mind, the over/under line for this match is set at 21.5. Furthermore, Ana Bogdan has been involved in a lot of three-setters lately; as three of her last four, and eight of her last 11 matches ended in maximum sets (excluding retirements). All things considered, this match should go over 21 games.
