Swiss Belinda Bencic enters this with a Gold Medal in her pocket winning after winning at the Tokyo Olympics which included three top-20 scalps.

Her good form continued at the Cincinnati Masters reaching the Quarter Final, and is a good chance of featuring in the second week here at Flushing Meadows.

Her first-round opponent is Arantxa Rus, ranked 71st in the world. The Dutchwoman enters this winning her last 10 matches, but all on clay. She’s 2-6 on hard courts in 2021, and with no hard court lead up she will find this difficult against the Swiss.


Bencic has won their two previous match-ups comfortably and will cover the -4.5 game handicap.
