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 sixth day's play at Flushing Meadows:

Andy Schooler,

Philipp Kohlschreiber to beat John Isner at the US Open at 5/4

Kohlschreiber has beaten Isner in each of the last two US Opens and he looks a decent price to complete the hat-trick here. Isner’s US Open record is a pretty poor one for a home player with such a weapon – the fearsome serve earning him plenty of free points. Neither has he been in great form with several early exits during the hardcourt swing. Admittedly, he has yet to drop a set but has played no-one of note and the obvious deficiencies in his return game are shown to some extent by the fact that he’s played three tie-breaks already. Kohlschreiber will offer much more of a threat in this match. Five of their six matches have gone to a final set (Kohlschreiber won the other in four) which shows the German is more than capable of dealing with Isner’s serve. An added bonus is that the match is being played on the Louis Armstrong Stadium, which usually plays a bit slower than the main Ashe court. If he can win a few big points, probably in a tie-break or two, he can bring home the bacon here.
