Jo Konta Is Ready To Make US Open History At Flushing Meadows

The 2017 Ladies US Open is missing some big names as both Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka are absent this year and that could open the door for a first British winner since Virginia Wade in 1982...

Joko Is Ready

The betting market for this year's tournament is wide open and Garbine Muguruza is a 9/2 favourite with Bet 365. The recent Wimbledon champion is ready to step up and served notice of her hard court credentials by winning the Cincinnati Open last week, although 9/2 is a very short price for a player who has never gone beyond the second round of Flushing Meadows.

Karolina Pliskova is next best at 7/1 in the betting and the world number one did reach the final here twelve months ago but is she mentally strong enough to go one step further and claim that maiden major title?

The Tip Off - US Open Preview

There is so much competition for the crown this year but we are backing two players to go far in their own quest for a first major crown, starting with Simona Halep.

The diminutive Romanian has endured tough defeats in some big matches this year but she keeps coming back and that is testament to her change in attitude since her coach Darren Cahill questioned her commitment to the sport.

Halep has come back stronger each time and this could well be her year if the draws fall right. The 25-year-old reached the French Open final this year and was undone by Muguruza in the Cincinnati final recently but a decent draw could open the door for her to go all the way in New York, where she lost to Azarenka in the last-four in 2015 and to Serena in the 2016 quarter-finals.

Halep is a player who knows her game inside out and she will go deep in this tournament, with her current price of 10/1 very much the value with Ladbrokes.

Johanna Konta also makes appeal here as the Wimbledon semi-finalist will relish the hard, fast courts in the United States. This is undoubtedly her best surface and the Miami Open winner can finally build on the promise that has marked her out as a major winning in waiting for the past eighteen months or so.

Konta can be backed at 11/1 (Ladbrokes.com) and that looks like a decent price in what is a hugely competitive betting heat.
