Betting on Angelique Kerber (-260)
That mental toughness and relentless drive shown by Kerber is going to do her a lot of good versus Caroline Wozniacki. Both are very familiar with each other’s style, which would explain why their head-to-head showdown has been pretty close. Kerber leads it, 7-5, with all of her five losses to the Danish star happening on the hard court.
Nevertheless, whatever tactics or schemes that Wozniacki is thinking of, Kerber should be able to provide the answers. She’s gone through a pair of heartbreaks this summer, settling for a silver medal in the Rio Olympics and a runner-up finish in the Cincinnati Open. Those experiences have certainly sharpened Kerber’s mind and body even more.
Kerber has won 24 of her last 27 matches overall since Wimbledon.
Betting on Caroline Wozniacki (+200)
You could say that Caroline Wozniacki has been almost just as dominant as the German. After losing her very first set of the US Open to Taylor Townsend, the 26-year-old Dane has conceded no more than four games in the last 10 sets she’s played in. That stretch includes a pair of straight-sets victories over top-seeded opponents in Svetlana Kuznetsova and Madison Keys.
With that being said, Wozniacki will definitely show no signs of fear or intimidation against Angelique Kerber. The former is undoubtedly well-aware that she has what it takes to emerge triumphant in this semifinals matchup. Besides being currently on her best run of the season, Wozniacki has beaten Kerber on multiple occasions and boasts a more successful resume at Flushing Meadows, where the former World No. 1 won the title back in 2012 and finished as the runner-up twice (2009, 2014).
Wozniacki is 7-3 in her past 10 matches overall.
Kerber (-260) holds off a valiant performance from Wozniacki, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5.
