Dominic Thiem vs Ben Shelton prediction and odds: US Open 2023

Dominic Thiem, the former world number three, will be hoping for a solid result at this year’s US Open 2023, the tournament that launched him three years ago. Can the 20-year-old repeat his success from the Australian Open, where he reached the quarter-finals, in North America?

Our favourite Dominic Thiem vs Ben Shelton predictions

Consider today’s tennis prediction and analysis of the first round of the US Open.

Thiem to win @ 21/20 (2.05)

Dominic had already defeated Shelton in their previous meeting and made it look simple. Ben did virtually little to escape losing in that match, which concluded fast in two sets.

The home team has experienced a losing season, with more defeats than victories. Based on their previous matches and their respective performances this season, I believe Thiem will move to the third round.

Under 40.5 games @ 10/11 (1.91)

The latest sets and games played by the 2020 US Open champion ended in 6-2 or 6-3 scores. In his most recent bout, he won 27 times.

Ben’s defensive weakness this season leads me to believe that this duel will be over shortly; I dare to declare that this duel will be over in less than 40.5 games..

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.

Thiem vs Shelton: High expectations for the former US Open Champion

The second round of the year’s final Grand Slam features an intriguing match. Let’s take a look at each player’s preview to help us back up our prior ATP US Open predictions.

Dominic Thiem  

Thiem nearly won his first trophy of the season three weeks ago, reaching the final in Kitzbuhel before losing to Sebastian Baez. The Austrian player performed admirably ahead of the US Open in 2023.

Dominic maintained a steady rhythm in the previous round. Alexander Bublik was defeated in straight sets by the former world number three. The fight lasted 1 hour and 52 minutes. Thiem converted six break points while losing only two serves.

Ben Shelton

The American player had a strong showing in 2022, dominating some Challenger tournaments. This season, Ben Shelton made the decisive decision to compete in high-level competitions.

So far, his assimilation has been difficult, and he has only made it through the second round of a couple of ATP competitions.

Thiem vs Shelton Head to Head

Both tennis players met in the second round of the Estoril Open three months ago. The Austrian’s experience won out, as he won in straight sets.
