Taylor Townsend will play Bianca Andreescu in the 4th round of the women’s event at US Open 2019 at Flushing Meadows.
Townsend is coming off a straight sets (7-5 6-2) win over the Romanian Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea. The 23-year-old American qualifier did well to maintain her focus, with that result coming off the back of the biggest win of her career in beating another Romanian, Simona Halep, in the previous round (2-6 6-3 7-6).
Despite an injury absence earlier in the year, the Canadian teenager Andreescu has had an excellent 2019, having beaten all seven top-10 players she has come up against during the period.

US Open Pick: Set Betting – Bianca Andreescu to Win 2-1 @ +300 (4.00) with bet365
The 15th seed beat former Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-4 in the 3rd round. The 19 year-old has won all six sets this tournament (although she has had serious issues with unforced errors) and has won nine straight matches overall.
Townsend is a serve and volley specialist who could certainly trouble Andreescu, but the teenager is not only in great form, but she also has by far the greater experience at this stage of major tournaments.
When it comes to predictions, Andreescu has to be the tip based on the momentum behind her this year.
