Kevin Anderson to build on his tough opening match win
It was only three years ago in 2018 that Kevin Anderson was ranked fifth in the world. However, limited appearances in the last couple of years due to the pandemic and knee surgery saw him slip down.
Nonetheless, the 35-year-old won the seventh title of his career in Newport on grass this year. That was his best result of the season as he bids for a return to the top rankings once again. Despite that, his season on the hardcourts is poor though with a 2-6 record.
Notably, Anderson’s best result at the US Open was reaching the 2017 edition’s final where he lost to Nadal. Presently, Anderson won his first-round match against Vesely in five sets after four hours and 19 minutes of play.
Anderson Key Stats
- Anderson hit 85 winners in his first match
- The South African didn’t break Vesely’s serve in his first-round match
- 59% is the average points won by Anderson on his second serve.
Diego Schwartzman in a tough second-round clash
The world number 14 Diego Schwartzman is having a good season. In fact, the Argentine won his fourth title this year in Buenos Aires. Also, the main highlight was reaching the Roland Garros quarter-final and losing to Nadal for the second year running.
As for the US Open, this is the 29-years-old’s eighth appearance. His best result was reaching the quarter-finals twice in 2017 and 2019. Indeed, Schwarzman’s best match in New York was against Zverev in 2019 when he beat the German in four sets.
Moreover, Schwartzman aims to forget his last year disappointment in losing in the first round. In fact, he did just that by beating Berankis in his first match 3-0. However, he now faces a much tougher opponent and needs to be at his best.
Schwartzman Key Stats
- Schwartzman won 14 of his 15 service games in his first match
- The Argentine’s first serve percentage in his first match was 62%
- The points won on his second serve was 42% in his first match
Kevin Anderson vs Diego Schwartzman Prediction
This will be the fourth meeting between these two players. Schwartzman lost the last time they met in five sets at the French Open in 2018. However, the only time they met on a hardcourt, Anderson came on top. That was back in 2015 at the Australian Open.
In the present, and looking at their season, we can see that the Argentine is in much better form. Furthermore, Anderson suffered much more to come through his first-round match.
Naturally being a clay court favored player makes Schwartzman have better control in his rallies. On the other hand, Anderson relies on his powerful strokes and goes for the big shots early in the rallies
To conclude, we think both players will win a high number of games given Anderson recovers from his tiring first-round match. Hence we predict over 37 games which at Vbet has odds of 1.78.
