It’s less than a month until the US Open at Flushing Meadows and the time for punters to get their eyes in for the season’s second hard court segment is now.
Washington D.C’s Citi Open is one of the top 20 events on the ATP tour with big dogs Tomas Berdych, Leyton Hewitt, Radek Stepanek, John Isner, Milos Ranoic, Kei Nishikori, Richard Gasquet, Kevin Anderson and Feliciano Lopez in attendance.
Before they’re parachuted in, however, there’s a chance to check out the potential Flushing Meadows upsetters of tomorrow, today as the first round gets under way.
Read on for news.bwin.com/en/’s best bets of the opening day that pay out as a nifty 12/1 treble for those who are interested.
Malek Jaziri to beat Sergiy Stakhovsky @ 11/5 NAP
Stakhovsky’s victory over Roger Federer at Wimbledon 2013 means he’s the bigger name heading into this encounter.
However the Tunisian world number 114 has done for him in both their previous meetings, most recently on this surface in Tashkent last season.

Alejandro Falla to beat Robby Ginepri @ 17/25
Colombian Falla has been in decent nick on the hard stuff this term, landing the Noumea challenger in his first tournament of the year before taking eventual winner Stanislas Wawrinka to four sets in the Australian Open
Frank Dancevic to beat Benoit Paire @ 27/20
Dancevic but fell to defeat when confronted by Paire on the Melbourne hard court, but since then the pair have had divergent campaigns.
The latter has won two of his nine outings since retiring with a knee injury at the Madrid Masters.
His opponent looks primed to take some revenge for his Australia defeat after reaching a brace of Challenger finals (winning in Kosice) on the clay and performing well at Wimbledon.
