Bet of the Day: Daniil Medvedev beats Wawrinka in Wimbledon rematch at US OpenPublished on: September 3, 2019Author: Jamie Clark
Daniil Medvedev beats Wawrinka was one of the early shocks at Wimbledon, and the Russian looks value to repeat that at another Grand Slam.
Now among the top seeds, world number five Medvedev meets the Swiss in the US Open men’s singles quarter-finals on Tuesday.
Wawrinka, a former champion at Flushing Meadows, commands respect. His last 16 victory over Novak Djokovic flatters him, however.
The world number one in men’s tennis retired in the previous round when two sets down. Djokovic clearly had an injury, so fortune favoured Wawrinka.
In Medvedev, the veteran Swiss and three-time Grand Slam winner faces an opponent he hasn’t beaten before.
As the Russian triumphed on the grass courts of Wimbledon in four sets just two months ago, he’s worth siding with again.
Medvedev beats Wawrinka worth a wager
Standout odds of 6/5 with Bethard say Medvedev beats Wawrinka once more. It’s a fair price given the result of that previous encounter.
Neither player has been flawless in their respective runs to the US Open men’s singles quarter-finals. Both dropped sets to lesser opposition in earlier rounds.
It’s a classic battle between youth and experience. Wawrinka is 34 and has done it all before, while Medvedev still has his whole career in front of him.
Those ATP world rankings are fickle at the best of the times, but it’s the Russian who sits highest of the pair.
Wawrinka went into this Slam ranked almost 20 places below Medvedev. With both winning two or more matches in four sets, something similar looks on the cards here.
A great tennis match between thriving youngster Medvedev and the veteran Wawrinka promises plenty. It looks the most competitive of the US Open men’s singles quarter-finals this year.
Siding with the Russian to confirm Wimbledon form on the hard courts of Flushing Meadows makes sense.
Bet of the Day: 6/5 with Bethard, Daniil Medvedev beats Wawrinka in the US Open men’s singles quarter-finals.
