Novak Djokovic is dealing with an ailing wrist, but that probably won’t be too much of a factor in today’s semifinals encounter with Gael Monfils.

Djokovic’s been fortunate in the US Open. He’s received extra days of rest after seeing three of his previous five opponents retire or walk out from the match due to injuries. His only ‘legitimate’ wins were against Kyle Edmund in the fourth round and Jerzy Janowicz in the opening round. The latter duel was quite a scare for the Serbian, who needed four sets (6-3, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1) to dispose of the Pole.

Monfils, meanwhile, has his back against the wall in this matchup. He’s never beaten Djokovic across 12 head-to-head clashes in the ATP circuit. The Frenchman’s overall play, though, has looked excellent in New York, having yet to drop a set in his last five matches. But taking on a well-rested Djokovic still appears to be a hefty task to accomplish.

Writer’s Prediction

Djokovic (-900) wins it in straight sets.

Stan Wawrinka vs. Kei Nishikori (4:30 PM ET)

Line: Stan Wawrinka (+125) vs. Kei Nishikori (-155) – view all US Open Men’s Singles lines here

Will the third time be the charm for Stan Wawrinka? It could be. The Swiss star reached the semifinals of the US Open back in 2013 and just last year. He was bested in both, but those experiences have surely lit a fire in him so you can expect Wawrinka, who outlasted Juan Martin del Potro in the previous round, to be sharper in this impending showdown with Kei Nishikori.

Speaking of the Nishikori, he pulled off a major upset against Andy Murray in a five-set classic. The Japanese has faced a series of ups and downs in Flushing, but his return game and determination has kept him alive. He should have a relatively easier time against Wawrinka, whom the World No. 7 has beaten in two of their last three meetings.

Writer’s Prediction

Wawrinka (+125) overpowers the Japanese in four sets.
