Learner Tien vs Frances Tiafoe – match predictions

The Flushing Meadows stage becomes a canvas for their aspirations and resilience, as they embark on a quest to carve their names into the tournament’s rich history. The 17-year-old Tien has a tough task on his hands as he takes on the challenge of last year’s semi-finalist.

3-1 to Frances Tiafoe @ 7/2 (4.50)

Tiafoe is the overwhelming favorite in this duel and with good reason. However, the world number 10 cannot rest assured in his position and waltz to the next round. Tien has reached the semi-final at Lakewood and followed it with a quarter-final finish at Edwardsville. These results came on the back of his title triumph in Irvine. The teenager will look to impress at the highest level and can take a set away against Tiafoe who has lost three of his last four matches. Based on this, we are backing a 3-1 triumph for Tiafoe.

Over 29.5 Games @ 87/100 (1.87)

At Wimbledon, Tiafoe registered two straight-set victories but the number of games went in excess of 29.5 games at each time of asking. This came on the back of his success on the green tops of Stuttgart. The world number 10 has not had the best form leading up to the US Open and can be challenged by the upstart Tien. Based on this, we are backing an extended game with over 29.5 games in this first-round outing.
