Djokovic and Federer Warm up for US Open FinalsPublished September 11, 2015 by Florin P
Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic take on dangerous underdogs in the US Open semi finals (2:00 p.m UK Time).
The set is staged for one of the most anticipated Grand Slam tournament finals of 2015, with both Djokovic and Federer in superb form. The Swiss player has already defeated the world number once in Cincinnati and seems unstoppable on US soil. Meanwhile, both of them take on dangerous opponents in the US Open semi finals and are slightly overpriced by bookmakers.
Djokovic Goes for the 14th Straight Win
Cilic hasn’t defeated Djokovic so far despite the fact that the two players met on 13 occasions and the Croat rarely won a set. He is however the reigning champion and one year ago when the pair squared off at Wimbledon, the match turned into a thriller and the Serbian player barely won in five sets.
Bet365 sports offers tiny odds of 1/10 on Djokovic to prevail, while those who correctly anticipate a victory for the Croat would increase their investment seven times. 8/13 on the favorite to prevail in straight sets is not mouthwatering value, but decent odds given Djokovic’s form.
A Swiss Duel at the U.S. Open
The best tennis players in Swiss history will be facing each other once again in the second to last stage of a grand slam tournament. Federer has a crushing head to head record with 16 victories in 19 games, but it was Wawrinka who prevailed in their most recent match. Stan won in straight sets at Roland Garros, en route to winning the French Open and causing one of the biggest upsets in tournament history.
This time he is the underdog and given odds of 5/2 to prevail, while Bet365 sports is only willing to offer 3/10 on Federer’s triumph. Risk-averse players can bet on his outright victory, but better value comes from betting on Roger to win in straight sets, and the odds revolve around 5/4. Don't miss these great tennis games today.
