- 2 Anna Blinkova vs Jodie Burrage: British star to dash Russian ambitions?
- 3 Key match details
Burrage has given fighting displays of her ability but has not done enough to get over the line. A similar statement can be made about the world 38, whose form is nothing to write home about but has been striving hard to get back to winning ways.
Jodie Burrage to win @ 7/5 (2.40)
The difference between winning and losing at the slams can be minute and we believe it will be the case in this meeting. Blinkova has lost five of her last six matches, unable to turn the tide despite her best attempts. On the other hand, the travelling Burrage impressed has four defeats in the same period but her last three matches have been three-set affairs, winning once and being on the losing side twice. Given Burrage’s resilient showings, we expect her to get over the Russian star.
Over 20.5 Games @ 3/5 (1.60)
Neither Blinkova nor Burrage have been dominant in their displays. The last wins for each player came in three sets and saw the match needed a deciding set. As they meet in the first round we believe that will be the case again. While we are backing Burrage to triumph, even while losing, the British ace has forced the game into extra time with final set heartaches. With the ingredients of this match out of sorts and forcing extra games in fixtures, we expect to see Over 20.5 Games.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far this season. For the latest tennis betting tips and predictions here.
Blinkova faces a notable challenge as she seeks to improve her 0-5 career record at the US Open. While she has successfully navigated the opening rounds of other Grand Slam tournaments, her history in New York presents a hurdle she aims to overcome. Additionally, her recent hard-court performance has been less than ideal, with only four wins in her last 10 tournaments on this surface. Despite a promising start to the season with a semifinal appearance in Hobart, Blinkova’s North American swing has been marked by a 1-4 record.
Jodie Burrage preview
Burrage is set to make her debut in the main draw of a Grand Slam outside of her home country. Her top 100 debut was propelled by an impressive grass-court season, highlighted by her maiden WTA final appearance in Nottingham. Although she faced mixed results on US soil recently, reaching the quarterfinals in Stanford but experiencing an early exit in Chicago, Burrage’s journey to the top 100 demonstrates her potential to perform on the big stage.
This is the first meeting between Anna Blinkova and Jodie Burrage on the WTA tour.
