US Open To Win Outright

  • Iga Swiatek -190
  • Ons Jabeur +165

Jabeur Dismantles Garcia

Jabeur dismantled Cincinnati champion Carolina Garcia in straight sets, needing a little more than an hour to clinch the resounding 6-1, 6-3 win and book her place in her first-ever US Open final.

The 28-year-old Tunisian went into the semifinals as the firm underdog priced at +135, despite boasting the 2-0 head-to-head edge over Garcia in WTA action and having reached the Wimbledon final only a couple of months ago.

In hindsight, Jabeur’s disadvantaged betting online odds look laughable. Garcia was clearly overwhelmed by the occasion and she never quite found her rhythm as Jabeur got off to a fast start. Jabeur didn’t play her best tennis, but she was solid and did enough to get the job done.

Ons Jabeur is the first North African, Arab, and Tunisian woman to reach the #USOpen final.

Swiatek Overcomes Sabalenka

Swiatek’s been the top favorite at the sportsbook betting exchange right from the start, but her path to the US Open final wasn’t quite as straightforward as the odds would have suggested.

Swiatek was the firm favorite going into the semis, but she was down a set to the Belarusian before she started to settle into her game. It was the second time in the tournament that the World No.1 found herself on the ropes. (Julia Niemeier took a set off Swiatek in the R16.)

Belarus’s Aryna Sabalenka came out firing at all cylinders and took the first set 6-3 before the 21-year-old Polish sensation flipped the script and won the second 6-1 to level the match.

Sabalenka broke early in the third set and seemed to be in control. But Swiatek is the best player this season for a reason and once she broke the Belarusian’s serve, she didn’t look back.

Swiatek vs Jabeur Head-to-Head

Swiatek and Jabeur are tied 2-2 lifetime.  But Swiatek owns the 1-0 edge in 2022  after beating Jabeur in the final of Rome,  6-2, 6-2. Swiatek’s first win over Jabeur came in 2019 when she beat the Tunisian in Washington, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Jabeur beat Swiatek twice in 2021. She defeated the Polish star in three sets at the Wimbledon Championships, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1.  She then took the straight-set win in Cincinnati, 6-3, 6-3.

Swiatek vs Sabalenka Prediction

Swiatek and Jabeur are two of the best players on the WTA Tour and as such, either would be a fitting champion at the 2022 US Open.

Swiatek’s been there and done that, so to speak. She has two French Open titles under her belt and that experience is definitely something she can hang her hat on to win a third grand slam career title.

Jabeur might not have a major title to her name, but she was the Wimbledon finalist earlier this summer. By her own admission, it was that experience that showed her she could compete for major titles, which spurs her on today.

Jabeur has played Swiatek close, especially on hard courts where all their matches have gone the distance. If both bring their A-game, this should be another absorbing contest that could go either way.

Swiatek is the favorite and the player most expect to win, but don’t be surprised if Jabeur pulls off the feat and writes herself into the history books.
