Match: Dominic Thiem vs. Juan Martin del Potro Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Monday, 05 September, 2016
World number 10 Dominic Thiem will face the US Open champion from 2009 Juan Martin del Potro in the 4th round.
Despite being unseeded, Del Potro was considered here as the biggest favorite after Djokovic and Murray. The reason is his amazing run in Rio where he won the silver. Delpo is one of the players who still hasn’t lost a set in New York this year. And the fact that he defeated Steve Johnson and David Ferrer without any problems players, is really impressive.
Thiem on the other hand had to play 5 sets in the 1st round to cope with John Millman, after that he won in straight sets versus Ricardas Berankis and in 4 sets against Carreno-Busta. He has never reached the quarter-finals here at the US Open so this is a big chance for the Austrian. He lost his only match against Delpo this year at Madrid Masters in straight sets.
I think that this will be a huge test for Delpo’s ambitions in the tournament but I think he will win this match in 4 sets.
