Emma Raducanu hasn’t lost a set at the US Open, is playing sensational tennis and gaining plenty of confidence. 

The 18-year-old will have no fear against 17th seed Maria Sakkari in the US Open semi-finals. Raducanu burst onto the scene at Wimbledon. She reached the fourth round as a wild card, retiring against Ajla Tomljanovic in her first Grand Slam.

The 18-year-old reached the Chicago 125 final in August where she lost 6-1 2-6 6-4 against Clara Tauson. The World No. 150 hasn’t lost a set at the US Open which included three qualifiers. Raducanu beat Stefanie Voegele, Shuai Zhang, Sara Sorribes Tormo, Shelby Rogers and Belinda Bencic.

Sakkari reached the French Open semi-finals but failed to get past the third round in her next four tournaments.

The 25-year-old from Greece has found some consistency at the US Open.

Sakkari beat Marta Kostyuk, Katerina Siniakova and Petra Kvitova in straight sets. She beat Bianca Andreescu 6-7 7-6 6-3 before getting a 6-4 6-4 win against Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals.

This will be the first match between Raducanu and Sakkari.

Verdict

Backing against Emma Raducanu has not worked out for punters at the US Open. I am laying low on this one and putting a small stake on Raducanu beating Maria Sakkari in the semi-finals.
