Fantasy Tennis Picks: Top DraftKings DFS US Open Targets for September 6

Kenny Ducey gives his picks for Sunday’s DraftKings fantasy tennis slate, which locks at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Tennis: US OPEN Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got yet another full day of tennis action from the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows beginning at 11 a.m. ET as the fourth round kicks off! We take a look at options to consider for your fantasy tennis rosters on DraftKings.

Set your DraftKings fantasy tennis lineups here: TEN $50K Line Painter [$10K to 1st] (US)

High-priced options

Novak Djokovic ($11,300)

Djokovic’s opponent, Pablo Carreno-Busta ($3,700) was broken with ease by Ricardas Berankis in his last match but retrieved enough of those breaks back to win in straight sets. Now, what’s going to happen when he plays arguably the best returner of all-time? He’s going to get broken a lot and this time Novak’s not going to be so forgiving. PCB isn’t a chump but his form doesn’t inspire confidence coming in against the world No. 1.

Petra Kvitova ($9,400)

Kvitova has been absolutely rolling on these hard surfaces in New York, winning a very high percentage of points behind her first serve. She actually saw the number of first serves she hit in drop in her last match, yet still rolled with ease. Her easy draw continues with Shelby Rogers, who is into her first Grand Slam fourth round in large part due to an easy draw herself. Her run ends here and it ends fast. Kvitova cruises.

Value flex options

Borna Coric ($8,300)

The implied probability that Coric wins this match is pretty high for this price. His moneyline sits at -182 right now and I expect it to close around -200. His performance against Stefanos Tsitsipas was nothing short of spectacular and he is far more talented than Thompson in my eyes. What impressed me most from a DFS perspective was his serving, which has been shaky in the past. He was able to hit his spots and rack up service winners and I think he should win this easily with a little in the ace column.

Denis Shapovalov ($7,500)

Shapo is a better tournament shot than cash game play, playing in what Vegas has dubbed a pick ‘em against David Goffin ($7,200) but I think you want to take a bet on Shapo winning if you’re going to take a shot on someone in this match. I was very impressed with how he came back against Taylor Fritz and he seems to have shaken out of a funk where he was just going through the motions at times on the court.

Angelique Kerber ($6,100)

Kerber rides in off a 70-point performance in the third round and comes into a very winnable match against Jennifer Brady ($8,600) as one of the hotter players left in the draw. Kerber has the return game to get to the powerful Brady and has the edge when it comes to experience in a Grand Slam draw. At $6,100, getting a potential straight-set winner is a steal.

Others to consider: Petra Martic ($8,500)
