What a surprise semi final line up we have in this one. You won’t have found many punters picking either of these to be at this stage of proceedings ahead of the tournament. Spain’s Carreno Busta has had a great campaign, having dropped just the one set on his way to the semi finals. He powered his way comfortable past Diego Schwartzman in the quarter finals in straight sets and looks pumped up and full of energy.

The 26-year-old has no track record at the US Open which hinted that he would get this far, never before having been past the third round. But earlier this year he did make it the quarterfinals of the French Open which was, until now, his best ever run in a Grand Slam. So he has already gone one better and he is going into his one as they heavy 2/1 underdog at bet365 and that will be based on his former defeats at the hands of Anderson.

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson’s two wins from two meetings with Carreno-Busta happened in Casablanca back in 2013 and this year at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Canada, which was on the hard court. But Anderson is ranked 13 places beneath Carreno-Busta in the world rankings at the moment and he hasn’t won an ATP title this year, whereas the Spaniard has. Carreno-Busta went to the US Open with a 30-18 season win/loss record, while Anderson had a 23/15 record.

Anderson is 2/5 odds at bet365 to win this duel, but the South African has no prior Grand Slam form to speak off. He has been past the fourth round just once before in his career which was at the US Open two years ago. This is a player, who has never made it past the quarter finals of an ATP Masters Series tournament either so for him to be such a short price is a bit surprising. He won his first three matches without dropping a set but was taken to four in the fourth round against Paolo Lorenzi and then had an epic duel with American Sam Querrey in the quarters.

Anderson took down Querrey in a late show in New York with a 3-1 set victory but three of the four sets played were settled only by a tie break. That was some match, but Anderson held his nerve but you have to feel that that may have taken something out of him and Carreno-Busta will have had more of a rest. At this stage of the game, there is nothing wrong with backing the younger Spaniard to make a go at this. Anderson is more experienced, but this is uncharted territory for him as well and Carreno-Busta 3-1 in set betting for a price of 13/2 with bet365 screams value.
