2-0 to Jennifer Brady @ 18/25 (1.72)
Jennifer does not have the same fitness as before and Kimberly will surely look to profit from it. The question to answer will be does the Australian has the momentum and discipline to realize it. With three defeats in five matches and a lucky loser award to make yet another main draw appearance, the odds are against Birrel. With Brady giving a good account of her abilities in her win over Jelena Ostapenko and a fighting 2-1 defeat to Elena Rybakina in Montreal, it is the American who should make little work of the 112-ranked rival.
Under 20.5 Games @ 83/100 (1.83)
Birrel has been in poor form which was evidenced by her straight-sets defeat to Caroline Wozniacki in her return after over 30 months. Prior to the main draw, 731-ranked Fiona Crawley knocked her out and she needed a lucky loser card to get here. All the while, Brady has given battling performances against her rivals and her dogged ability should ensure that this match finishes as early as possible. We do not see this match going beyond two sets and are backing an Under 20.5 conclusion to this meeting.

Kimberly Birrell preview
Birrell’s journey to the US Open main draw has been anything but conventional. Making her sixth appearance on this prestigious stage, Birrell’s entrance this year echoes her reliance on wildcards once again. Despite stumbling in the final qualifying round, Birrell’s fortunes changed as she entered the tournament as a lucky loser. Eager to capitalize on this unexpected opportunity, she aims to add to her three career major victories, notably those achieved on her home turf in Melbourne. With recent hard-court titles in Cantanhede and Orlando, coupled with a quarterfinal appearance under her belt, Birrell is poised to showcase her growth and challenge the elite.
Jennifer Brady preview
Brady’s return to the tennis arena after a two-year hiatus due to injuries has been a journey of determination and resilience. While her recent activity is limited, her wins on the court underscore her indomitable spirit. Notable among her triumphs was her stellar performance in Montreal, where she emerged victorious against formidable opponents, including a gripping third-set victory over Jelena Ostapenko. Brady’s tennis resurgence, marked by a remarkable Australian Open runner-up finish and a US Open semifinal appearance in previous editions, signals her intention to rekindle the brilliance that once propelled her career.
