Milos Raonic: Fearsome serve but not a great returner
Milos Raonic: Fearsome serve but not a great returner

At Wimbledon, Andy had eight winners from 13 bets at a level-stake profit of more than 23 units, while Barry has landed landed profits at five of the last seven Grand Slam tournaments.

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

Andy Schooler,

Milos Raonic to win win first set 7-6 v Peter Gojowczyk at 4/1 (General)

In need of boosting the bank, I'm going for a bigger price today and this looks a fair one. The German is a player who is in and out but he's shown he can rise to the big occasion this season with wins over Philipp Kohlschreiber, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Raonic himself on his record. That win over Raonic came on grass in Halle and it is notable that Gojowczyk held serve throughout. He's been serving well at Flushing Meadows where he came through qualifying and then banged down 18 aces in a comfortable first-round win. With Raonic having the best serve in the game and also not being the greatest returner, a first-set tie-break could well be on the cards. That can be backed at 5/2 but I'll take the 4/1 about it being won by Raonic, after all he has won nine of his 10 breakers during the current hardcourt swing.

Barry Cowan, Sky Sports

Robredo, Nishikori, Mayer & Coric all to win at 2/1

Querrey, Kohlschreiber, Isner, Paire & Verdasco all to win at 5/2

Djokovic, Tsonga, Murray and Raonic all to win 3-0 at 11/4

Kvitova, Keys, Vesnina, Azarenka, Makarova & Bouchard all to win at 7/2

  • All Barry's selections are with Sky Bet, who are donating all winnings to the 'Rally For Bally' fund, set up in memory of former British number one Elena Baltacha, who died from liver cancer earlier this year. The money raised by the fund is being split between the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and the Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis.
