The second batch of US Open first-round matches take place on Tuesday and there are plenty of familiar faces on show with defending men’s champion Carlos Alcaraz the headline act.
We have combined five short-priced favourites in our day two accumulator, which features a former Grand Slam runner-up as well as two British hopefuls and pays out at 5.81/1.
Matteo Berrettini to beat Ugo Humbert
Things haven’t gone well for Matteo Berrettini since he finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2021, with injuries and illness limiting his performances.
However, the former world number six showed signs of his old sparkle at Wimbledon earlier this summer, making the fourth round by recording wins over Lorenzo Sonego, Alex De Minaur and Alexander Zverev.
A reproduction of that form should see him past Ugo Humbert and he has no problem with conditions, having made the semi-final of the US Open in 2019 and back-to-back quarter-finals since then.
Andy Murray to beat Corentin Moutet
Former British number one Andy Murray is back playing some good stuff despite hitting 36 years of age and he should have the measure of Frenchman Corentin Moutet.
Murray, who won this Slam back in 2012, won twice on the Challenger Tour earlier this summer and his run to the last 16 in Toronto, where he withdrew prior to his showdown with Jannik Sinner to reserve his body for Flushing Meadows, shows he remains in good form.
Gael Monfils to beat Taro Daniel
Fast approaching 37, Gael Monfils may not be the force of old, but the French veteran remains a top talent and he should have too many weapons for Taro Daniel.
Recent performances have been super encouraging from Monfils, who was a quarter-finalist at the Canadian Open, before making the last-16 of the Cincinnati Masters.
Across those two tournaments Monfils claimed the scalps of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Cameron Norrie and Alex De Minaur, which highlights just how well is currently operating.
Katie Boulter to beat Diane Parry
Katie Boulter claimed her maiden WTA Tour title in Nottingham in June and the Briton can win her US Open first-round clash with Diane Parry, who has lost three of her last four matches.
Boulter is ranked 27 places above Parry in the world rankings and she won their only previous meeting 6-4 6-2 under similar conditions in Indian Wells in March.
Sofia Kenin to beat Ana Bogdan
Sofia Kenin has had a troubled time since winning her first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2020, but the American is back playing well and can oust Ana Bogdan.
Spurred on by home support, Kenin should readily outclass Bogdan, who has lost her last three matches and was beaten by the American in their most recent encounter.
