Marie Bouzkova will face a tough task in the shape of Naomi Osaka in the opening round of the US Open 2021 on Monday.
Bouzkova had an impressive start to the season, having enjoyed success on hard courts. She started the year with a third-round appearance at Yarra Valley Classic, a final in Melbourne at the Phillip Island Trophy, and another semifinal in Guadalajara. However, she had been a different player since then, having lost 12 of her last 15 matches on clay, grass, and hard courts.
Osaka is the defending champion here, but she has struggled for consistency lately. She has only reached the third round at the Tokyo Olympics before losing in the second round against Teichmann in Cincinnati.
Osaka opted out of French Open and Wimbledon due to her mental health issues regarding her refusal to do press conferences. The Japanese star has won in straight sets in the sole meeting with Bouzkova, which was at the Australian Open 2020.
Our best tip for this clash is Under 18.5 Games at odds of 8/11 with Bet365.
