US Open: Day 8 & 9

The action continues to heat up at the final Grand Slam of the year. 

Here are our best picks for Day 8 of the US Open.

Roger Federer v Philip Kohlschreiber

Despite his two unexpected five set matches in the first and second round, Roger Federer got back to his best against Feliciano Lopez and he should continue that run against Philip Kohlschreiber.

Federer owns a ridiculous 12-0 record against the veteran German and all signs point to another easy victory for the Swiss maestro.

Prediction: Federer 3-0 @ $1.85

Sam Querrey v Kevin Anderson

This battle of the big gun servers promises to be an entertaining encounter that could potentially go either way.

Both players have breezed their way through to the quarter finals although Querrey’s three set demolition of Mischa Zverev in the round of 16 was nothing short of sensational.

The American is playing arguably the best tennis of his career and he is clearly feeding off the home crowd support. Anderson will not give an inch and Querrey will be forced to work for every point but we can’t go past the big American to win through to the semi finals.

Prediction: Querrey @ $1.72
