Serena Williams

For the past two years, Serena Williams has consistently made it to the US Open final. This year the American tennis player is had problems, but is again on the verge of reaching the final.

After two confident starting victories over An (7-5, 6-3) and Gasparyan (6-2, 6-4), three consecutive three-set matches followed by the American tennis player with Stevens (2-6, 6-2, 6-2 ), Sakkari (6-3, 6-7, 6-3) and Pironkova (4-6, 6-3, 6-2).

Williams' current game is not stable. In our forecasts for her matches in New York, we noted that there was no tangible progress in the American game during the tournament. The quarter finals against Pironkova turned out to be very difficult. According to statistics, Williams performed well, but her opponent also produced one of the best matches in the tournament. At the decisive moments of the game in the third game, Williams had an advantage when playing her serve.

Victoria Azarenko

For the first time since 2013, Victoria Azarenko reached the semifinals of the Grand Slam tournament. The Belarusian tennis player has not lost for ten matches.

After a difficult victory in the 1/8 finals, Mukhova (5-7, 6-1, 6-4) was followed by the defeat of Eliza Mertens (6-1, 6-0). Bookmaker analysts expected an equal opposition in that game, offering almost the same odds for the victory of tennis players. However, from the very first draws, Victoria indicated her total advantage and did not allow a minute to doubt the final result (6-1, 6-0).

Don't expect Serena Williams to be as easy on the Victoria court. Even when Williams had a total superiority over her opponents on the tour, Victoria was one of those who were not afraid to go on court against an American. It is interesting that the Belarusian tennis player won all four of her victories over Williams in the finals of the WTA tournaments.


It is not often in matches with Serena Williams in the line of bookmakers that you see almost equal odds on the winner. Against the background of the last three-set matches of the American and Azarenka's ten-match winning streak, there is no clear favorite in the upcoming semifinals. How expedient is it to play a bet on the victory of a Belarusian tennis player along this line?

In the course of each of the last matches, Williams found the strength to add and break unsuccessful fights in her favor. With Pironkova, Serena had excellent statistics on her serve. Taking into account personal meetings, manner of play and set odds, we offer a forecast for the victory of an American tennis player.

Our prediction is Williams' victory for 1.94 odds in 1xBet BC.
