Reilly Opelka beat Lloyd Harris in Canada last month and can win again at the US Open.

No. 22 Opelka reached the Canada Masters final in early August. He beat Nick Kyrgios, Grigor Dimitrov, Lloyd Harris, Roberto Bautista Agut and Stefanos Tsitsipas before going down to Daniil Medvedev.

The 6'11" American lost 6-7 6-0 7-6 against Casper Ruud in the second round at the Cincinnati Masters.

Opelka hasn’t lost a set at the US Open. He beat Soon Woo Kwon 7-6(3) 6-4 6-4 and Lorenzo Musetti 7-6(1) 7-5 6-4 before posting a 7-6(5) 6-3 6-4 victory against Nikoloz Basilashvili in the third round.

Harris was a runner-up in Dubai in March, his first final appearance since January 2020. 

The South African beat Karen Khachanov 6-4 1-6 4-6 6-3 6-2 in the first round at the US Open but hasn’t lost a set since.

Harris beat Ernesto Escobedo  6-4 6-4 6-2 in straight sets before securing a 6-4 6-4 6-4 win against World No. 10 Denis Shapovalov.

Opelka beat Harris 4-6 7-6(6) 7-6(4) at the 2021 Canada Masters in early August in their most recent encounter.

Verdict

Reilly Opelka beat Lloyd Harris in Montreal and can win again in New York. I am backing more tie breaks for Opelka who can win the first set 7-6 for the fourth match in a row.
