A nice price in the match betting for Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who enters this third-round match as $1.49 favourite against Lloyd Harris of South Africa.
No. 7 Shapovalov has cruised through his first two rounds at Flushing Meadows without dropping a set. He beat Federico Delbonis 6-2 6-2 6-3 in the first round before defeating Roberto Carballes Baena 7-6(7) 6-3 6-0 in the second round.
The improving Harris, meanwhile, ousted Karen Khachanov in five sets 6-4 1-6 4-6 6-3 6-2 in the opening round before eliminating Ernesto Escobedo 6-4 6-4 6-2 in his next assignment.
The South African won their only meeting in Dubai in March in a third-set tiebreaker, but in a major it’s hard to look past Shapovalov. He enters this US Open off the back of his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon and by the look of his draw, he has a good chance to reach the quarterfinals and beyond.
