No. 2-seeded Rafael Nadal makes his ninth U.S. Open quarterfinal appearance Wednesday night when he plays No. 20 Diego Schwartzman at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y. The match begins at 8:15 p.m. ET from Arthur Ashe Stadium. Nadal, who has won three U.S. Open titles, advanced in four sets over Marin Cilic on Monday and stands just three wins away from his 19th career Grand Slam title. He was forced to retire in last year’s U.S. Open semifinals due to a knee injury. In Wednesday’s 1:15 p.m. ET quarterfinal in the U.S. Open 2019, France’s Gael Monfils plays Italy’s Matteo Berrettini. Nadal has beaten Schwartzman in all seven previous matchups, so it’s not surprising that bookmakers list the Spaniard as a -1700 favorite (risk $1,700 to win $100) in the latest Nadal vs. Schwartzman odds, with the Argentinian getting +1140 (risk $100 to win $1,140) as the underdog. But there are plenty of Nadal vs. Schwartzman picks you can make, including how many sets the match lasts and whether Nadal covers a 7.5-game spread. So before you make any 2019 U.S. Open picks or tennis predictions for the quarterfinals, see what renowned tennis handicapper Sean Calvert has to say.
Calvert is red-hot this year. In March, he took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1 and then he called Adrian Mannarino’s Libema Open title at 25-1. At Wimbledon in July, Calvert told his followers to grab 3-1 odds on Novak Djokovic facing Federer in the final, adding that Djokovic would win it all. The result: Djokovic and Federer cruised into the finals, with Djokovic winning the 4 hour, 57-minute final for his fifth Wimbledon crown. Anyone who followed Calvert’s advice was handsomely rewarded.
Moreover, Calvert owns the U.S. Open. Since 2013, $100 players following his U.S. Open picks are up nearly $7,200. Now, Calvert has locked in his picks for Nadal vs. Schwartzman and Monfils vs. Berrettini, including a best bet on Nadal’s match that pays more than 5-2.
Calvert knows Monfils has won 11 of his last 15 matches when favored in the range of -150 to -200. In this match, bookmakers list him at -196 (risk $196 to win $100). Mair also knows weather conditions could force 2019 U.S. Open organizers to close the roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday. That changes the game, Calvert says, and it benefits one player in particular.
“The weather forecast suggests rain, wind and thunderstorms for the Flushing area on Wednesday, so the match may be played under the closed roof on Ashe, which the players have said makes the conditions slow and low bouncing,” Calvert told SportsLine.
Calvert is highly confident he has both of Wednesday’s quarterfinal winners, and he’s also targeting a serious plus-money prop in the Nadal vs. Schwartzman match. Anyone who follows his advice could be in for a huge payout. Given Calvert’s track record, you need to see his picks and analysis before locking in your 2019 U.S. Open quarterfinal picks.
