US Open Multi Bet of the Week for September 7th - 9th
Daniil Medvedev Vs Andrey Rublev
September 7th 03:30, Arthur Ashe Stadium
Daniil Medvedev secured a satisfying victory at the US Open round of 16, defeating Alex de Minaur in four sets. Although Medvedev faced a challenging North American swing, his hard-court prowess in 2023 revitalized his ranking. He asserted himself as a hard-court specialist, winning four titles this year. Additionally, Medvedev's track record in hardcourt Grand Slams, with two Australian Open runner-up finishes and three US Open semi-finals, makes him a formidable force on this surface.
On the other hand, Andrey Rublev reached the US Open quarterfinals with a mixed form but a favorable draw. He has made mental strides in 2023, including a win at the Monte Carlo Masters. However, Rublev has struggled in Grand Slam quarterfinals, holding an 0-8 record, and has never beaten a top-5 player in best-of-five sets matches. In their head-to-head, Medvedev leads 6-2, and for Rublev to succeed, he must hope for a subpar Medvedev performance.
The quarterfinal matchup promises to be a test of Medvedev's hard-court dominance against Rublev's quest to overcome his quarterfinal barrier.
Expect an intense battle, with Medvedev ML & Both Players to Win a Set showing nice value on Bet365 @$2.20.
Carlos Alcaraz Vs Alexander Zverev
September 7th 10:30, Arthur Ashe Stadium
Carlos Alcaraz cruised into the US Open quarterfinals after a straight-set victory over Matteo Arnaldi. His delight increased as Jannik Sinner, a formidable rival, was eliminated after a gruelling five-set match. Alcaraz's strategy to conserve energy by winning efficiently in the early rounds has paid off. As the top seed, he's lost only one set in four matches, while his upcoming opponent, Alexander Zverev, endured a nearly five-hour marathon.
Alcaraz continues to make history, joining an elite group with six Grand Slam quarterfinal appearances, a feat unrivaled by current players or the "big-four." He's also the second-youngest player ever to reach four consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinals. With an 11-match Grand Slam winning streak, Alcaraz eyes a strong showing. However, he's struggled against powerful servers this year, a concern as he faces Zverev, who handed him a quarterfinal loss at the French Open in 2022.
Alexander Zverev's comeback journey gains momentum, with victories in Hamburg and a recent win against Daniil Medvedev. His triumph over Jannik Sinner marked a pivotal moment, breaking his top-10 Grand Slam losing streak. Zverev, a former US Open runner-up, holds a 6-3 record in Grand Slam quarterfinals. While his head-to-head with Alcaraz favors him, Zverev's fitness and a demanding previous match could tip the balance in this quarterfinal clash.

Ben Shelton Vs Novak Djokovic
September 9th 05:00, Louis Armstrong Stadium
In the semi-finals of the 2023 US Open, former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will face off against Ben Shelton. Djokovic, who had a relatively smooth journey to the semis, is a dominant force in this tournament. He overcame Taylor Fritz in a convincing fashion, winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.
On the other side, Shelton had to battle through intense matches to reach this stage. His latest victory came against Frances Tiafoe, where he displayed remarkable composure to secure a 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7), 6-2 win.
This will be the first-ever meeting between Djokovic and Shelton, setting the head-to-head at 0-0. Djokovic enters the match as a heavy favorite with odds of -1400, while Shelton faces long odds at +750.
Djokovic's game, although slightly below his best, has been effective. He has the experience and adaptability that make him a formidable opponent. Shelton, known for his aggressive style, will have a tough time breaking down Djokovic's defenses.
Considering Djokovic's form and track record, the prediction is that he will win this match in straight sets, maintaining his dominance at the US Open.
