There was disappointment for Hadad Maia and Fernandez at Flushing Meadows, the former getting only to the second round while the latter was ousted in the first round.

Beatriz Haddad Maia to win @ 87/100 (1.87)

Both Haddad Maia and Fernandez have struggled to give their best, accruing three defeats in their last five outings. While the Canadian’s wins have came at the lower stage of Cleveland, the Brazilian accumulated her wins in Montreal and the US Open. Given Haddad Maia’s higher ranking and ability to live up to the challenge, we are backing her to triumph in this meeting despite tasting defeat against Fernandez earlier in the season.

Over 22.5 Games @ 11/10 (2.10)

Leylah’s fixtures have been interesting as she has given performances at both ends of the spectrum. The same cannot be true for Haddad Maia, who has seen three of her last four matches go into extra time with a deciding set needed to find a victor. Their last meeting also went to the wire and a victor was found after 33 games in the three-setter. As they meet again, we expect an other long duel with over 22.5 games witnessed.
