Naomi Osaka vs Anna Blinkova

Since winning the Australian Open in January, Osaka hasn’t been herself. At least she’s not facing Sofia Kenin, who knocked her out of the Western & Southern Open, in Round 1. Anna Blinkova is a good tennis player. She’s won 3 doubles titles this year. Doubles play is different than singles play. Osaka moves on to the second round.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Naomi Osaka

Astra Sharma vs Magda Linette

Sharma’s got a nice 24-15 record. She’s won two doubles titles and a singles title in 2019. Magda Linette has a singles title victory as well. She’s the play in one of the more contentious Round 1 matchups.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Magda Linette

Anastasia Potapova vs Cori Gauff

All eyes will be on 15-year-old Cori Gauff, who had an impressive run at Wimbledon. Anastasia Potapova is only 18-years-old, though. She won a doubles title this year. Gauff will play tough, but Anastasia should get the win.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Anastasia Potapova

Anett Kontaveit vs Sara Sorribes Tormo

Anett Kontaveitk gave Ashleigh Barty a fight at the Western & Southern Open. She beat Barty 6-4 in the first set. That’s good enough of a reason to back her against Sorribes Tormo in this match.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Anette Kontaveit

Ajla Tomljanovic vs Mari Bouzkova

Tomljanovic has a winning 24-21 singles record this year. Bouzkova marched all the way to the Rogers Cup Semifinals, though. Serena crushed her after she won the first set. Bouzkova takes this.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Marie Bouzkova

Alize Cornet vs Jessica Pegula

Cornet hasn’t played since the Palermo Ladies Open in late July. Jessica Pegula has a singles victory in 2019. Pegula has played more recently. That gives her an edge over Cornet.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Jessica Pegula

Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova

Serena really wants to take the U.S. Open after the strange goings on at the 2018 tournament. They won’t make it easy on her. Maria Sharapova can play great tennis when she’s on top of her game. She shouldn’t be, but Serena retired in her last tournament played. Let’s peg Maria to pull off the upset.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Maria Sharapova

Zarina Diyas vs Ashleigh Barty

Barty, the French Open winner, doesn’t get a cakewalk in Round 1. Zarina Diyas played Sofia Kenin tough at the Western & Southern Open. She also won a singles title earlier this year. We’re not gutsy enough to call the upset. But, Zarina will make Ashleigh work next week.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Zarina Diyas

Misaki Doi vs Madison Keys

Madison Keyes offers +1200 odds to win the U.S. Open. She won the Western & Southern Open. So, the odds make sense. Does Misaki Doi have any shot of knocking Keyes out early? Probably not, but Keys can bounce because the W&S was her first ever title. Misaki to win.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Misaki Doi

Angelique Kerber vs Kristina Mladenovic

Kerber hasn’t been in great form. If she were, she’d be an easy pick over Kristina Mladenovic. But, she’s not. So, Kristina has a real shot of sending Angelique home early.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Kristina Mladenovic

Elina Svitolina vs Whitney Osuigwe

In Round 1, underrated Elina Svitolina battles a 19-year-old American who hasn’t played since the Miami Open in late March. Elina wins this in straight sets.

U.S. Open Women’s Tennis Pick: Elina Svitolina

Saisai Zheng vs Venus Williams

Venus made it all the way to the quarterfinals at the Western & Southern Open. She lost to Sofia Kenin. Saisai Zheng has two singles titles and a doubles title this year. She’s the pick to beat Venus in the first round.

US Open Women’s Round 1 Pick: Saisai Zheng
