Betting Prediction:

Her opponent will be Ekaterina Makarova, 36th ranked. Makarova is definitely one of the most threatening unseeded players in the tournament. Williams won 4 of their 5 meetings. An interesting fact is that this will be their third meeting in New York – Serena won in 2012 6:4 6:0 and in 2014’s semifinal 6:1 6:3. But Williams would surely prefer much weaker opponent because Makarova often delivers her best tennis at the biggest tournaments. She also knows how to beat Serena at a Major – Australian Open 2012.

Serena Williams is without a doubt the biggest favourite in the tournament as she is aiming for a record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam title. Serena fell to unseeded Roberta Vinci in the last year US Open’s semifinals, denying herself a calendar-year Grand Slam. The motivation of the top seed will be huge after the huge disappointment at the Olympics where she was defeated by Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina. I expect full concentration in this game for Serena and a straight-sets win.
