Gael Monfils made short work of clay-courter Federico Coria in round one, winning 93 per cent of his first-serve points in a 6-3 6-2 6-2 victory, but his next opponent should be much tougher.

The 35-year-old Frenchman, a quarter-finalist at Flushing Meadows two years ago, has won all three encounters with big-serving Steve Johnson, although each one went the distance.

Monfils is 14/5 to win in four sets and 11/2 to get the job done in five against a player who came from behind to beat Maximilian Marterer 3-1 on Tuesday.

Johnson has only once advanced to the third round of the US Open in 10 successive appearances but he took the opening set in two of his three matches against Monfils and is 29/20 to do so again as one of Thursday’s US Open betting tips.

Verdict

We are backing Monfils to win in four sets.
