In two personal meetings tennis players exchanged victories. The last face-to-face meeting of 2018 ended with Osaka's victory (6-4, 6-4). In each of the last three matches at the US Open, Osaka scores more than 80% of points on the first serve.
At the first official start after the resumption of the season, Brady won the trophy at Lexington. Undoubtedly, she managed to bring herself in excellent shape precisely to the start at the US Open.
Jennifer's path to the semi-finals was a breeze. The American tennis player did not give a single set to any of her rivals (Blinkova, Bellis, Garcia, Kerber, Putintseva). Moreover, she gave a maximum of six games to only one fight with Caroline Garcia (6-3, 6-3).
The quarterfinals against Putintseva turned out to be quite convincing in a row (6-3, 6-2). However, it is somewhat alarming that Jennifer made 24 unforced mistakes at once with 22 winners. She gave her serve twice. Putintseva did not work in the best way on her serve and could not impose a fight. The upcoming rival Osaka has just perfect order with the serve.
In the tournament grid, Osaka allowed herself to give her opponents twice in a set. The first round was a three-set match against compatriot Doi (6-2, 5-7, 6-2). There were also problems during the third round match against Marta Kostiuk (6-3, 6-7, 6-2).
The last two matches in the tournament against Kontaveit and Rogers, the Japanese tennis player finished with the same score 6-3, 6-4. There is no recession to speak of. Extremely collected and reliably played on her serve, made breaks at the right moments. The game against Rogers turned out to be exemplary in general: only eight unforced errors in two sets with 24 winners, 76% of the points scored on his serve.
It was Osaka in the semi-finals who had better statistics on the quality of play than Brady. We offer a prediction for Naomi to win with a small handicap in games.
Our prediction is that Osaka will win with a handicap (-2.5) of the game for a coefficient of 1.65 in BC 1xBet.
