Maria Sakkari has had a decent season so far. She reached the fourth round of the Australian Open but got knocked off by Jessica Pegula. She then reached the semifinals of the Qatar Open and the finals of Indiana Wells and St. Petersburg.

The Greek, before her US Open stint, reached the quarterfinal round of the Granby National Bank Championships.
Sakkari started her US Open run by defeating veteran Tatjana Maria in the first round by 4-6,6-3,6-0.
Whereas Xiyu Wang has had an unremarkable season. She reached the second round of the Australian Open, where she lost to fourth seed Barbora Krejcikova.

She will start her US Open run after reaching the quarterfinals of the Granby National Bank Championships, where she lost to ninth Daria Saville.

Maria Sakkari vs Xiyu Wang Prediction
Sakkari is the clear favourite to win this match. Sakkari is known for her aggressive game. She has some powerful strokes and groundstrokes. Wang also plays in an aggressive manner. She likes to keep her rallies short, and like Sakkri, she can comfortably play across all parts of the court.
But Sakkari holds the edge in the game as she is one of the fittest players in the tournament right now and this will help her win in the longer matches. Even though Sakkari isn’t in her best form right now, she will easily cruise into the third round if she keeps calm.
Prediction:- Maria Sakkari to win in three sets
