Here we have a wildcard, Caroline Wozniacki, going up against an American with a protected ranking, Jennifer Brady.

It’s pretty crazy that both of these players are ranked outside of the top 400 in the WTA rankings. Then again, they’ve both been at the top of the game in the past, hence the wildcard and protected ranking that enabled them to get into the main draw. Anyway, with both of these players on the comeback, what are the most appropriate WTA US Open 2023 predictions to follow for this contest? I’ve listed two right here.
Wozniacki to win @ 4/5 (1.80)
Based on the way that Wozniacki has performed in the opening two rounds, I feel that she will overcome Jennifer Brady and reach the 4th round. Specifically, I was most impressed with the way that she took out the 11th seed, Kvitova, in straight sets in the last round. This shows that she is playing well and confident.
Wozniacki -1.5 games handicap @ 5/4 (2.25)
With the women’s singles matches being the best of three sets, it’s very possible for Wozniacki to score a -1.5 games handicap against Brady – assuming she wins the match, of course. This would require Wozniacki to win by a margin of 2 games or more, which she has done in both of the previous rounds.
The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.
Wozniacki looking to make 4th round for first time since 2016
Ahead of this third-round women’s singles match, make sure you get a little more familiar with each player by checking out the following previews:
Caroline Wozniacki preview
People tend to forget that Carolina Wozniacki was at the top of the women’s game back in the day. And she can clearly still produce a very high level of tennis. Furthermore, she has made the finals of the US Open twice in the past, and she’s fallen at the semi-finals stage on three occasions. While yes, these results were a while back, they show that she loves competing in New York.
Jennifer Brady preview
Jennifer Brady is competing under a protected ranking at the 2023 US Open. Yet she has won both of her opening matches to make the third round. However, her performances and subsequent wins haven’t been quite as convincing or as impressive as Wozniacki’s. So for me, she’s not playing quite as well as Wozniacki, although Brady has made the semi-finals of this event in 2020. Therefore, she can play great tennis in New York too.
Wozniacki vs Brady head to head
These two have never crossed paths on the WTA Tour prior to this third-round contest. Of course, this means the current head-to-head for these two players is 0-0.
