Bianca Andreescu vs Elise Mertens Prediction & Betting Odds - US Open Tips
September 04, 2019
Canadian Bianca Andreescu will play Elise Mertens on Wednesday in the US Open quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows in New York. Both players have been in impressive form of late, so this has the makings of an entertaining match.
The Toronto-native Andreescu, who is still only 19-years old, had a tough challenge in the 4th round, where she overcame the American qualifier Taylor Townsend in three sets, 6-1 4-6 6-2.
The win over Townsend was an 11th straight victory for the teenager and extended her record for the year to an extraordinary 42-4. She now finds herself in the half of the US Open draw that is guaranteed to feature a first-time Grand Slam finalist and there seems little reason why it shouldn’t be her.
Belgian player Elise Mertens has lost no more than three games in each of the eight sets she’s played in the US Open this year to date. In the 4th round, the no. 25 seed produced a dominant display to see off American wildcard Kristie Ahn with ease, 6-1 6-1.
