Rogers Upsets Sakkari
Rogers delivered the tournament’s biggest upset on Thursday, defeating top seed Maria Sakkari in straight sets in the R16.
The 36-year-old American veteran was in fine form as she cruised to victory in barely an hour and some change, dropping just four games en route to the win.
The R16 win marked her second signature win of the tournament after beating former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu in the first round, 6-4, 6-2.
Into her third quarterfinal of the year 👏

The key to her success was top-notch serving. Rogers was serving at 68% on her first serve and added 10 aces to her credit. She won 76% of her first serve points. As well, she converted on four of 10 break point opportunities. She also fought off three break point opportunities to maintain her perfect serving performance.
Anisimova Outlasts Pliskova
Anisimova kicked off her tournament with a straight-set win over fellow American Ashlyn Krueger, 6-2, 7-6 (5).
Then, she followed up her opening win with a three-set victory over former US Open finalist Karolina Pliskova.
The 20-year-old American was forced to come from a set down to beat the big-serving Czech, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
The first two sets were intense as both players traded blows from the baseline. However, the last set saw Pliskova lose some steam as Anisimova grew in confidence.
Overall, Anisimova served at 67% on her first serve and won 69% of her first serve points. She was even more efficient with her second serve, winning 73% 2nd serve points. She broke on four of six opportunities and saved one of three break points that she faced.
Rogers vs Anisimova Head-to-Head
Rogers owns the 2-0 head-to-head edge over Anisimova, a run of form that includes a win at the Miami Open earlier this year. Rogers beat Anisimova 3-6, 6-0 6-3 in the first round. She also beat Anisimova in three sets in the R32 at Charleston (clay) last year.
Rogers vs Anisimova Betting Verdict
Rogers came into the tournament with highly questionable form. She was 12-15 going into the tournament and ranked at No. 45. She entered the draw as one of the longshot bets and she remains so as one of the two unseeded players left.
Rogers is priced at +1400 to win the title and at +175 to win this quarterfinal match. Despite these tennis odds, Rogers is still a worthwhile bet to consider – at least to advance into the semis.
Not only has she reeled off back-to-back upsets in San Jose, but she’s also undefeated against Anisimova. That should send her into this quarterfinal matchup with some confidence.
Bookmakers fancy Anisimova – the other unseeded player in the tournament – to come through. Anisimova is priced at -225 to win and advance into the final four.
The statuesque American is also the third-best bet at +400 to win the tournament as we look at the latest betting online Odds.
Anisimova comes into San Jose brimming with confidence. She is enjoying a standout season and arrived in California’s Tech hub with a solid 29-11 record on the season and a title – she won the Gippsland Trophy during the Australian swing. Most recently, she was a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon.
By all accounts, Anisimova has the confidence and form to win this match. She’s also a tough competitor that doesn’t quit. She’s won ten matches after losing the first season this season, which is no mean feat. That said, Rogers is playing with house money. She has nothing to lose.
