Back Rajeev Ram (+2.5) to beat Kyle Edmund at 1.73 with Paddy Power

Ram should cover this line more often than not imo with his tricky playing style that could easily frustrate Edmund, who hasn't been in the best of forms lately. The American, on the other hand, is fresh from Rio and he's got a medal to show for his efforts as well, which could do a lot for his confidence. No reason to worry about the US Open either, as he's secured a WC for himself, so this is all about him trying his best in home conditions - and, considering that he's recently beaten Gulbis and Pouille, it would be very wrong to underestimate him.

I agree with you both, as anyone who pays attention to this forum knows, Czech really knows his stuff. However, this was a loosen bet, Edmunds won 7-5, 7--6 which is a difference of 3 games., the handicap being at 2.5.

No problem, too many matches to sift through today, not going crazy though.

Back Quentin Halys to beat Egor Gerasimov at 1.50 with Bet365

Too many matches to choose from in the US Open quallies, but only this one caught my eye in all honesty. Why? Well, although Halys has been in a fairly dreadful form recently, I still can't but fancy his chances against Gerasimov, who hasn't played a competitive match since the French Open, where he apparently suffered an injury. He wasn't having an excellent season before that either and coming back from an injury is always tough, so I'm happy to chance the Frenchman at 1.50 here.

Have to agree with earlier posts on Czech, I know very little about Tennis and generally pop into site for the odd football thoughts. I caught a few posts from Czech last year which I had a little tipple on, and from then on alway's have a look on Tennis forum to see what Czech has previewed on the tennis. One of the top dogs on this site, and a huge asset to all forumites who view the site.

Thanks the Czech for opinion. Always with interest I read the forecast. 
It is a pity that fish, psyho and other users was gone
Unfortunately badly I know English. I will try to spread the opinion further.

Opelka - Roger-Vasselin 1 1.89 pinnacle

Good current form of the young perspective American.
Good result on the last tournaments. Surpassed expectations.
The skilled Frenchman after Wimbledon was not in business.
The standing price of the perspective American against the skilled age Frenchman who does not show a result.

))sorry for my bad English

Tennys Sandgren looks like a fair go vs melzer...Tennys has been really good on the futures tour winning two tourneys and has raised his ranking a good amount. Melzer is a has been and I cant see him with much motivation having to win 3 matches just to get in. Throw in a bit of home cooking for Tennys I think this is a good bet.

Andrew Whittington to beat Joao Souza at 2.25 with bet365

I don't trust Joao to put Andrew away in the US open qualies. The brazilian have almost exclusively focused on the clay this year, almost more then he used to do and he hasn't played on hardcourt since april when losing in straight sets to Omar Jasika. I can belive Joao is on a level of around 200 in the world on hardcourt, maybe worse. Souza has won two challenger crowns lately on clay and now the obstacle of changing surface. Andrew seems to have reached a good moment in his career now playing very well on the challenger hardcourt tournaments reaching a final, semi-final and a quarter in his last three tournaments. He plays similar to Brian Baker. Quite a heavy serve and efficient follow-up forehand but a highly limited backhand. But anyway he's raised his level this season from being a hardcourt future player to a decent hardcourt challenger player. Souza has some momentum coming into this because of winning his last two clay challengers but anyway, I think I'll give Andrew a go here.

I've surprised by so high odd on Opelka. I'm afraid there are some hidden facts. Opelka should be bigger favorite.

edit: Maybe there is sentiment with Roger. When I saw his last match was in W it's nice. And even more he has pretty bad results at USO. And with Opelka he made big jump in Atlanta and maybe it is too fresh for punters

Khachanov - Basic 2.98

Khachanov is clay court player. Last match was on clay. And now he will play on hard court with hard court player. I know K. is generally better player but not on hard especially when he hasn't prepared for USO.

Back John Millman to beat Bjorn Fratangelo at 1.67 with Coral

Fratangelo had plenty of problems with Lorenzi in the previous round, while Millman has already managed to achieve two good wins over Ramos and Nishioka, so I'd have him as a bigger favourite here. The Australian hasn't been getting much coverage, but he's made massive progress in recent months and he's on his way to the top 50, while Fratangelo seems to be back to the Challenger level after getting some big results on a few occasions.

Back Rebecca Peterson to beat Anhelina Kalinina at 1.44 with Ladbrokes

First match for Kalinina for more than a year (!) due to an injury, so it's really hard for me to believe that she can win this. She did crush Peterson when they last met, but Peterson has made a lot of progress since then and has some good results in this season, while Kalinina has been sitting on the sidelines and that must have taken its toll. There's a similar match in Pfizemaier-Strakhova, but Pfizemaier was a top player before her injury, so I'm a bit afraid of that. Kalinina wasn't, however.

Again as usually I'm cautious about this match. Lorenzi is special player. Clay court player but with imrpessive stats 20:2 on hard court with players under him in ranking. I can imagine for Frantangelo it was harder to go into match with him. Last 2 sets were relatively easy for F. And surprise F. won last 7 matches when he was set down and match went to third set.

Makarova - Kvitova 2.75

Ohh, They've played 9 matches together with H2H 5:4 for Petra and one Petra's win was thanks to injury. This year is 2>1 for Makarova. I understand Petra has catched better form than in the spring but I have to disagree with so high odd. Makarova has annoying style for Petra. And even here in NH it can work.

Back Tereza Smitkova to beat Rebecca Peterson at 2.30 with BetVictor

Not sure what these odds are all about. I, for one, would have Smitkova as the marginal favourite here, as she's simply the better and also the more experienced player of the two. I might have backed Peterson in the previous round, but this is a completely different spot and one that I'm not sure she'll be able to handle. Smitkova also produced a nice comeback against Loeb yesterday, which must count for something.

Back Darian King to beat Aleksandr Nedovyesov at 1.83 with Paddy Power

Darian King for me here. Not only is he on an unbelievable roll at the moment, but he's also an actual hard-court specialist, while Nedovyesov is at his best on clay. The man from Kazakhstan isn't having a great season either, having lost plenty of winnable matches. He did well to get past the first round, but King outclassed him even there, having beaten the tricky Grega Zemlja himself.

Back Michael Berrer to beat Noah Rubin at 1.91 with Paddy Power

Berrer might not have a great future ahead of himself, but his win over Kozlov showed that he still has what it takes to beat the young guys and this might actually be one of his very last chances to get to a GS main draw, so he'll give it his all. Rubin, on the other hand, might have a great future, but he's been very up-and-down so far in this season, with there being no consistency in his results. I also don't think he'll like Berrer's playing style if the German gets to his attacking mood.

Well, that's what I call a bad day. Moving on though.

Back Jana Cepelova to beat Barbara Haas at 1.53 with Paddy Power

While Cepelova is competing with the world's best week in and week out, Haas is spending most of her time on the lower circuit. With solid success, of course, but I don't think you can replicate playing with the best players by playing with the second-best. Cepelova has always had the talent and skills for being within the top 50 and she's played two good matches here already, so this should be fairly routine for her imo.
