S. Williams vs Sevastova
US Open semifinals
I think Serena Williams will win here. So far she was very convincing, was covering the handicap more or less easily. Only once she has lost the set (vs Kanepi) but even back then she was 16-9 in games so won with 7 games difference.
I have strong opinion Serena will deliver also today. Still, odds for 2-0 are only around 1.60 plus I have small concern she could lose set in this match. As I mentioned earlier, Serena is more trustworthy when meets some more serious opponent than weaker. After all, the only set she has lost to Kanepi although had some more difficult opponents like Pliskova or her sister Venus.
In any case, I hope for straight sets win but if by some case she drop the set, I think we can trust Serena to still cover this -4.5.
She was improving round after round, service is excellent as ever and in such case there are no many players who can cope with Serena. Especially Sevastova, the first time ever Grand Slam semifinalist should not be that one who can deal with Serena Williams.
I am going with Serena -4.5 games.
