Aryna Sabalenka to win her first service game, first set, and the match @ 4/5 (1.80)

A lot has to go to plan for this prediction to come true but such has been the form of Sabalenka that we expect it to be realized. The Belarusian ace has registered straight-set victories against each of her rivals at the US Open thus far, which adds confidence in the latter two predictions of her winning the first set and the match. In her last three matches, she has won her first serve as well. The only time she has not done so was in her win over Maryna Zaneskva in the first round.

2-0 to Aryna Sabalenka @ 3/4 (1.75)

Zheng ended Jabeur’s ambitions of reaching a second successive Grand Slam final. It was long time coming as the Tunisian ace has struggled for form and fitness, dragging herself over the finishing line. Not to take anything away from Zheng but in Sabalenka, she faces a different beast. The Belarusian will be forcefully in her shots and it will cause her problems. We see a swift execution in which Sabalenka triumphs in straight sets.
