Our favourite Greet Minnen vs Venus Williams – match predictions

Williams’ legacy intertwines with Minnen’s relentless effort, promising an enthralling contest on the grand stage. The two-time US Open champion was supposed to take on the challenge of Paula Badosa but now turns up against the Belgian ace. For the latest insights and betting tips, be sure to check out our predictions for the WTA US Open.

Greet Minnen to win @ 13/20 (1.65)

Venus has just seven wins on the tour since the start of the 2020 campaign and is still searching for her win on Flushing Meadows since 2019. Minnen would surely arrive to spoil her party and her recent wins over Katrina Scott, Sinja Kraus and Zzeynep Sonmez highlight that. The two-time US Open champion can cause problems for the Belgian ace but Minnen’s ability to dig her out of trouble with two three-set wins in the qualifiers should allow her to get past her.

Over 20.5 Games @ 63/100 (1.63)

Veronika Kudermetova did not know what hit her in Cincinnati as she stumbled to a straight sets defeat at Williams’ hands. World number 23, Qinwen Zheng was going to face a similar fate after dropping the first set 6-1 but recovered to take the following two sets 6-2 and 6-1. The latter will be Minnen’s source of inspiration as she already has claimed similar wins in the qualifiers, playing 24 games to triumph against Sonmez and 27 games against Scott to get here. With Minnen and Williams involved in long-drawn battles recently, this match will follow suit and see at least 20.5 games.
