This is a tip for Young and Russell to beat Goffin and Thiem.
I was already thinking about this bet early today, but the fact that Goffin played a really long match today and showed some poor body langage help me more to tip it.
This team already played 2 times together this year and lost both of their matches. Goffin played only 13 matches in doubles since 2013. Only winning two, and both wins came from challenger tour.
Thiem played a bit more matches this past 2 years, playing 19 matches but still only winning 5. This year he only won 2 matches and this 2 matches were in Marseille ATP 250 with Lukas Rosol. He lost 11 times in a 1R in doubles.
That say's it all about this two players, first they are not doubles players, secondly they look not motivating about doubles. With Goffin long match, and both player still being in course for the singles draw, this can be more an handicap then something else.
They face a pair of two americans player : Donald Young and Michael Russell
Returning Russell and in form Young didn't played together since few years. However, Russell did already hit the 60# ranking in doubles and Young is actually #128 winning 9 matchs and losing 6 this year. Young did hit a final in Memphis, SF in Atlanta and also is 2/2 in majors this year. He passed the 1R in the Australian Open and in the French Open.
Donald Young did hit a long match against Simon and with an amazing comeback he should be confident and should be fresh there after 1 day rest.
The doubles match in the US Open is only best of 3 sets and I think Young and Russell got a big advantage here.
