Beatriz Haddad Maia to win @ 39/50 (1.78)

Haddad Maia has a tough task on her hands as she takes on the challenge of the 2017 US Open winner. Stephens is not the same player who lifted the trophy back then and has struggled against top-ranked rivals in recent months. She was ousted from Montreal and Cincinnati every time she came up against a top 20 rival. Haddad Maia barely completes the top 20 but with a prior win against Stephens, should have enough in the tank to progress to the next round.

2-1 to Beatriz Haddad Maia @ 17/5 (4.40)

Beatriz is still taking going through the races to find her best form. On her return from injury, she struggled in the three-set affairs against Leylah Fernandez and Karolina Muchova in Montreal and Cincinnati. With a 13-day gap from her last outing, the Brazilian ace should have regained her fitness for a strong US Open finish. She will be pushed hard by Stephens and can give up a set but her quality should allow her to come out on top in three sets.
