Barbora Krejcikova should have little difficulty against Christina McHale at the US Open.
I am backing the World No. 9 and reigning French Open champion to win and cover the -6.5 game handicap.
Krejcikova is in career best form. She started the year ranked 65 and without a singles title on the WTA Tour. The 25-year-old has won titles in Strasbourg, the French Open and Prague this year.
The Czech went down to Ashleigh Barty in the Cincinnati quarter-finals but it was enough to break into the Top 10.
Krejcikova beat Astra Sharma 6-0 6-4 in the first round at the US Open. She won 92% of her 1st serves and 65% of her 2nd serves.
McHale has done little of note in 2021 and dropped out of the Top 100. She failed to reach the quarter-finals in 20 tournaments.
The 29-year-old came into the US Open having lost six of her last seven matches.
McHale beat World No.337 Emma Navarro 6-1 7-6 in the first round at the US Open. She won 41% of her 2nd serves.
