Britain’s young tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has made it through to the main draw at the US Open 2021.

Emma Raducanu Preview – Can British youngster land the win on US Open debut?

Emma Raducanu burst onto the scene this summer when she reached the Fourth Round at Wimbledon.

That was her Grand Slam debut.

The 18-year-old made huge waves there after barely having had any playing time on the WTA.

Last week Raducanu breezed through US Open qualification to land herself in the US Open draw for the first time.

Raducanu won all three qualification matches without dropping a set.

In US Open tennis betting, Raducanu is at a quote of 19/20 for the match win* (odds taken 18:04 GMT on August 29th 2021 at Bet365).

This is going to be a very difficult one against Brady who is playing in her home Slam.

Our betting prediction:
Raducanu 2-1

Since that great Wimbledon run, Raducanu has played one match at WTA level, which ended in defeat in the first round at San Jose.

That leaves her at a 13/6 win/loss record this year.

But she has carried form elsewhere on the ITF and Challenger Tours.

If you count the three US Open qualification matches, Raducanu has won 9 of her last 11 matches at all levels, all on hard courts too.

Can the British youngster make inroads into the challenge of Brady? Injury issues for her opponent could help Raducanu’s cause.


Jennifer Brady Preview – brady a tough challenge for Brit

American’s Jennifer Brady is ranked 14th in the world currently.

That’s a long way from the 150th mark where Emma Raducanu is currently at.

Brady has not had a lot of playing time since the French Open this year.

She had retired from her Third Round match at Roland Garros and has played just three matches since.

There was a first-round loss at the Olympics for the American.

After a First Round win at Cincinnati recently, she then retired from her Second Round match.

So the injury issues that saw her miss the grass swing of 2021 clearly may not be totally cleared up.

Jennifer Brady was in sparkling form twelve months ago at the 2020 US Open, reaching the semi-finals.

Then she made it through to her first-ever Grand Slam Final by reaching the showcase match at this year’s Australian Open.

The injury problems have slowed her momentum.

It makes the tennis betting on this match interesting as well, as there’s no guarantee how match sharp and fit Brady is going to be.

The 26-year-old went into Cincinnati full of hope, kicking off her hard court swing. That didn’t pan out.

It may be worth pushing for 3 Total Sets at 29/20* (odds taken 18:04 GMT on August 29th 2021 at Bet365).

If Brady isn’t fully fit, then this could go either way.


Emma Raducanu vs Jennifer Brady Betting Advice

The injury issues that Jennifer Bready has had casts a little doubt over her for tennis betting in this one.

Trying to push on in Cincinnati recently would have damaged her chances of making the US Open lineup.

If her summer hadn’t slowed down and there was hard court form from her, we’d have no trouble swinging for her to bank the win.

But the safer play here is 3 Set Total at 29/20 to see this go the distance* (odds taken 18:04 GMT on August 29th 2021 at Bet365).
