Another tennis pick coming from the first round of the 2013 US Open is the one on a match between South African Kevin Anderson and Daniel Brands from Germany. he 27-year-old South African Kevin Anderson is a player who is profiting from his hard work and making most out of his abilities. He used to be a college player and later a player ranked just inside the Top100 but a lot has changed since then and now Anderson is stable Top 30 player with two ATP titles. Anderson is a big guy who relies on his big serve and powerful groundstrokes and his main weakness is his movement what is more than obvious for a player of Anderson's height. The 2013 tennis season is clearly his career-best season, having a 34-18 record with three final appearances on the ATP Tour and many other solid results. But almost the same can be said about his opponent as the 26-year-old German Daniel Brands has very similar characteristics - tall guy with big serve and powerful forehand. Brands started the season ranked well outside the Top 100 but achieved some really good results including wins over Federer, Youzhny, Tipsarevic or Baghdatis that catapulted him to the current ranking of world Nr. 51. Both players should be dominant in their service games and there probably won't be many breaks of serve in this match, so quite a close match is to be expected. Then betting on over 39.5 games looks like a solid tennis bet as it should be covered by most of the possible four sets outcomes.
