Here are their thoughts ahead of the second day's play at Flushing Meadows:

Andy Schooler,

Jurgen Melzer to beat Marcel Granollers at evens (Ladbrokes)

Both these players have been stuck in a rut of late by I'm happy to side with the slight outsider. Given the players' form, their head-to-head record could be of particular significance and it shows that Melzer has won both their previous meetings in straight sets. He also has some good memories of Flushing Meadows having made the last 16 in years gone by, while he also famously pushed Andy Murray during the Briton's run to the final in 2008. Granollers did make the fourth round here 12 months ago but didn't play another of note.
