When: Sep. 6 at 7:00 pm ET

  • #17 Serena Williams -550 vs #19 Anastasija Sevastova +425
Serena’s back after playing through the women’s bracket at the 2018 U.S. Open as if she were in a video game. She dominated Magda Linette and Carina Witthoeft before taking down big sis Venus in Round 3 by a 6-1, 6-2 score.Serena took 3 sets: 6-0, 4-6, 6-3, to move to the quarterfinals. At the quarterfinals, she made quick work of #8 Karolina Pliskova, an underdog players’ darling, 6-4, 6-3. Does Anastasija Sevastova have any shot versus the great Serena Williams?Yes, although it’s a small shot. Sevastova had to beat #7 Elina Svitolina in Round 4 after losing the second game 1-6. The way Sevastova picked herself up for a 6-0 game impressed. Then, she dominated Slone Stephens 6-2, 6-3.Serena’s the best women’s tennis player ever. But, she hasn’t won a U.S. Open since 2014. Sevastova’s in a great position to send Serena home until next year.

  • #14 Madison Keys -140 vs #20 Naomi Osaka +120
Keys has had an uneventful march to the semifinals after beating #29 Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 6-3, and #30 Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4, 6-3. Keys marched to the U.S. Open Finals last year only to fall 6-3, 6-0 to fellow U.S. player Sloane Stephens. Most expect she returns to the Women’s Singles Finals this year. Beating Naomi Osaka won’t be easy, though.The 20-year-old Osaka has played steady tennis since Round 1. She’s lost a single game, 2-6 to #26 Aryna Sabalenka in Round 4. Osaka bounced back from the bad game to knock Sabalenka out 6-4 in Game 3. Like Sevastova versus Svitolina in Round 4, Osaka came back strong from her worst game at the U.S. Open.Osaka versus Keys should be one of the most competitive tennis matches at the 2018 U.S. Open on either the men’s or women’s sides. Since odds were set last night, most money has gone to Keys, but Osaka should get garner backers as the day goes on.Naomi Osaka’s the pick because of her massive consistency. She’ll upset Madison Keys in tonight’s second match.2018 U.S. Open Women’s Semifinals Pick: Naomi Osaka
