With both players setting their sights on a second round spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Danielle Collins to win 2-0 @ 8/15 (1.53)
It’s important to note that Linda Fruhvirtova won the only other encounter between these players in straight sets, and it was on this surface. However, things haven’t gone swimmingly for the Czech player in recent weeks; she has lost six singles matches in a row, with four of those coming in straight sets. On the other hand, Danielle Collins won six of her last eight matches; she has four straight sets victories in her last six matches too. All things considered, the American should take this in two sets.
Under 19.5 total games @ 10/11 (1.91)
The over/under games line for this match is set at 19.5. While this may seem a little low, it’s worth mentioning that the only other encounter between these players featured less than 20 games. In the same vein, Danielle Collins has been involved in a lot of two-setters these past few weeks; as five of her last six matches ended in minimum sets. Given that those five matches went comfortably below the 19.5 games line, we are taking the under option for today’s match.
Can Collins keep the good form going after Canadian Open quarter-finals?
Now that our US Open predictions have been established, let’s take a look at both players’ recent form ahead of this competition.
Danielle Collins crashed out in the second round of the Cincinnati Open at the hands of Iga Swiatek a couple of weeks ago; she had previously reached the quarter-final of the Canadian Open despite being a qualifier. The American will set her sights on a place in the second round of the US Open, and she’ll fancy her chances against an out-of-form Linda Fruhvirtova.
On the other hand, Linda Fruhvirtova has not particularly enjoyed her best form these past few weeks; she suffered six consecutive losses in singles, winning just two sets in that stretch. As Fruhvirtova goes up against Danielle Collins on Monday, it’ll be interesting to see if she can defeat the American player once more.
Collins vs Fruhvirtova head to head
This will be the second encounter between Danielle Collins and Linda Fruhvirtova. These players previously met at the Dubai Open earlier this year, and Fruhvirtova came out on top in straight sets.
