The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Ashleigh Barty and CoCo Vandeweghe have made the final of the US Open women’s doubles tournament where they will take on the number 2 seeded team composed of Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos.
Ashleigh Barty and CoCo Vandeweghe have had an exceptional tournament as they have not lost a single set in the entire tournament. In the semifinals, Vandeweghe and Barty defeated the number 1 seeds in dominant fashion as they won in straight sets. In that victory, Ashleigh Barty and CoCo Vandeweghe served very well as they won all of their serving games. Ashleigh Barty has made the finals of this tournament before which will be a huge advantage for the team as she will be able to bring the experience of playing on this stage which will be good for confidence. This tournament is being played at CoCo Vandeweghe's hometown so she the pair have been hugely supported by the crowd throughout the entire event.

Similarly, Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos have also won all their sets in this tournament. The pair have been in good form for the past few months as is suggested by the numerous deep runs in tournaments made by Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos. This is the second grand slam final that Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos have made in 2018 as they won the Australian Open early in the year. Both of these players are hugely experienced and have won the big tournaments as a team. With such great form and the huge amount of experience, Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos will be hard to stop in this match.
All in all, I am going to pick Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos to win this match and the tournament. While Barty and Vandeweghe have played very well, they lack the experience that Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos have of playing in a grand slam final. I think the added experience will be the driving factor that gets Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos their second grand slam win of 2018.
