Rogers has consistently won three personal encounters
The last match between tennis players took place in 2017 and ended in a victory for Rogers in two games (6-4, 6-2).
Rogers lost just two matches after resuming the season in official WTA events, winning eight matches.
Shelby has been the bookmaker's underdog in four of her last eight wins.
In the very first fight in the tournament against compatriot Misaki Doi, it took Naomi three sets to win (6-2, 5-7, 6-2). Then the former first racket of the world (6-1, 6-2) coped surprisingly easily with two games against more eminent rival Camila Giorgi. In the third round a tough victory over Marta Kostyuk (6-3, 6-7, 6-2) followed again.
In the forecast for the 1/8 final match against Anette Kontaveit, we counted on a fight and even a possible sensation. In practice, Naomi worked impeccably on her serve, did not allow the Estonian tennis player to have a single break-point during the match and won in two games (6-3, 6-4). It's hard to make predictions for the matches with Naomi against this background. A lot will also depend on her rival, Shelby Rogers, who has her best tournament in years and has a history of beating Osaka.
At the current US Open, Rogers has already won two sensational victories. In the second round, Elena Rybakina was defeated (7-5, 6-1). In the 1/8 finals, Shelby passed to Petra Kvitova (7-6, 3-6, 7-6). In each of these matches the odds for the US woman to win were over 3.00.
The game against Kvitova turned out to be the most intense for Rogers. The tennis player in the third set managed to leave four match balls and was able to use her few chances to receive.
Our prediction is that Rogers will win with a handicap (+5.5) games for a coefficient of 1.81 in bookmaker 1xBet.
