U.S. Open betting: Blake swinging for swan song on Day 3

Defending US Open Champion Andy Murray takes to the court to open his title defense against French serve-and-volley specialist Michael Llodra. Three other matches that highlight Day 3 action in Flushing Meadows.

James Blake (-125) vs. Ivo Karlovic (-110): American James Blake announced prior to the US Open Tournament that he would be retiring pending his elimination from the event. Blake had one of the all-time great matches in a five-round classic with Andre Agassi in the quarterfinals of the 2005 US Open. Will Blake turn back the clock in his final tournament as a professional?

Urszula Radwankska (+150) vs. Sloane Stephen (-200): The American Sloane Stephens takes to Arthur Ashe in a feature match against Poland's Radwanska. Stephens has had a breakout year including a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open. Stephens struggled in the first round just getting by in a third-set tiebreak. I expect her to be propelled by the home crowd and win in straight sets.

Caroline Garcia (+175) vs. Laura Robson (-250): An exciting matchup between two teenagers. Robson is Great Britain's female hope, while Garcia is a rising star in France. This is an exciting matchup that takes place in Round 2 this year, but could be a quarterfinal type matchup in a couple years. Robson is the more polished player at this point in time, but Garcia may have the higher ceiling.

Karlovic serves his way past Blake in four sets...He has already won three qualifying matches while Blake has mentally already hung it up
