Johanna Konta v Aleksandra Krunic US Open Tennis Betting Odds

Konta to cruise in opening US Open match

Johanna Konta is the top British star at Flushing Meadows this year and after her great semi final exploits at Wimbledon earlier in the summer, then the expectations on her will be high. Following the withdrawal of Andy Murray, Konta is one of five Brits in the main draws of the singles, where she joins Heather Watson, Kyle Edmund, Aljaz Bedene and Cameron Norrie.

Konta will be up on the Grandstand court on day one when she takes on Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic. Konta will be looking for an easy straight sets victory in this one and a Konta 2-0 option in set betting is a 4/9 odds on price at bet365. Not great value there but you can look at a good Konta -5.5 game handicap for 8/11 bet365 for much better value. This should be a pretty straight forward affair for the British number one.

Johanna Konta v Aleksandra Krunic US Open Tennis Betting Odds

Johanna Konta 1/8, Aleksandra Krunic 5/1

This will be the first meeting between the two of them and 24 year old Krunic is ranked 78th in the world. She has had a couple of bright moments this season, such as reaching the final of Bol, Croatia where she had to retire, and she recently beat French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko in the first round of Cincinnati as well. But seeing her step up to take on the power of Konta, that’s a totally different thing. Expect a very comfortable straight sets victory for Konta.
