The US Open semifinals are set, and it appears to be a big weekend coming for the tennis world in New York. The men’s draw could see the third slam battle of the season between No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz and No. 2 Novak Djokovic.
And on the women’s side, a possible All-American final is still an option. Thursday is all about the women at the US Open, with both semifinals under the lights, and the men’s semis will come on Friday.
As always, MyBookie has the best US Open tennis lines for Thursday’s action from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York.

Is it Finally Coco’s Turn?
American teenager Coco Gauff has made a grand slam final, falling to Iga Swiatek at the 2022 French Open. This is her second semifinal, and she is favored at -204 to beat Karolina Muchova on Thursday. The Czech Republic star, who lost to Swiatek in this year’s French Open final, is +157 to reach the final.
Both players have grand slam experience with deep runs over the years. And most recently, they have both had to deal with Swiatek, but not at the US Open since the top seed fell in the fourth round to Jelena Ostapenko. Gauff easily dispatched Ostapenko in the quarters and now is one step away from a US Open Final.
These two have met one time, and that game last month in Cincinnati. That match was a final after Gauff knocked off Swiatek, and she rolled to the title, beating Muchova 6-3, 6-4. The big key in that match was that Gauff won 71% of her first serve points while Muchova won just 54%. That led to Gauff converting 5-of-8 break points while Muchova converted on just 3-of-9.
Gauff’s games line is -3.5, and the over is set at 21.5. The over is -118, and the under is +100. The match went under in Cincinnati, but the conditions this week are a lot hotter and more humid for both players. Even a night match will have weather issues, but the way Gauff is going, this seems to be all on her racket to win.
Sabalenka Favored Over Keys
To get the All-American final the US Open organizers and ESPN dream of, No. 17 Madison Keys will have to upset soon-to-be world No. 1 Aryna Sabalenka. The No. 2 seed takes over the top spot from Swiatek, no matter what happens this weekend. Sabalenka won the Australian Open in January and can become the only player on the women’s tour with two slam titles this season.
Sabalenka is favored at MyBookie with a -330 moneyline, and she holds a 1-5 career record in slam semifinals. Keys is +242 at MyBookie, and she is 1-4 in slam semifinals, with a win at the US Open in 2017 before falling in the final.
These two have met three times, and Sabalenka holds a 2-1 advantage. They played in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, and Sabalenka won easily, 6-2, 6-4. Keys’ win in the series came in Berlin in 2021 as she won in three sets, taking the final set 7-5.
Both players won their quarterfinal 6-1, 6-4, and their round of 16 match 6-1, 6-3. Sabalenka has yet to drop a set in the tournament, which brings the under 21.5 games at -111 into play. If you like Keys to win, the match is most likely to go three sets, and Keys +3.5 games is +105.
