Ashleigh Barty has moved into the US Open’s third round by winning both matches in straight sets.

The reigning Wimbledon champion accounted for Vera Vonareva 6-1 7-6 in the opening round as she blasted 11 aces and 31 winners. Barty overcame Danish teenager Clara Tauson in the second round 6-1 7-5 despite converting only five of 19 break opportunities.

Shelby Rogers has been impressive so far, putting away Madison Brengle 6-4 6-0 and Sorana Cirstea 7-5 6-2 in straight sets.

The world No.43 was a US Open quarter-finalist last year, equalling her best Grand Slam performance. 

Barty is 5-0 against Rogers including four wins coming in 2021. 

Verdict

Rogers is a quality player but it’s hard to see her troubling the world No.1 on this occasion. Barty can cover a -5.5 handicap and win in quick time.

Best Bet: Ashleigh Barty -5.5 Games Handicap @-125 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
