Before you make any Sabalenka vs. Swiatek picks or 2022 U.S. Open predictions, you NEED to see what tennis expert Jose Onorato has to say.
Onorato grew up playing competitive tennis in Caracas, Venezuela. After coming to the U.S., he trained with famed coach Nick Bollettieri at IMG Academy in Florida and faced players like Robert Farah, now one of the world's top-ranked doubles players.
Onorato, who holds dual degrees in finance and economics from the University of Miami, does extensive research before placing any tennis bet. He studies current form, players' tendencies on a particular surface, weather conditions and many other relevant factors. That systematic approach helped Onorato go 69-46 -- up 54.98 units -- from January through July.
The expert knows Swiatek has had little trouble with high-ranked opponents of late, winning eight consecutive matches against top-10 players - all in straight sets. The native of Poland's 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) triumph over Pegula was her first such victory in this tournament. Sabalenka, who is ranked sixth in the world, defeated Pliskova 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) is hoping for a better outcome than she had in the U.S. Open last year, when she was lost to Leylah Fernandez 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 4-6 in the semifinals. The 24-year-old Belerusian won her first matchup against Swiatek during round-robin play in the 2021 WTA Finals but has lost each of their three meetings this year.
Now, Onorato has scrutinized the Swiatek vs. Sabalenka matchup in the women's semifinals of the 2022 U.S. Open and released his coveted top pick. You ABSOLUTELY need to see what it is before locking in any 2022 U.S. Open picks of your own!
