US Open Tennis Men’s Favourites
New York is set to be the stage for some thrilling and intense battles between the best male tennis players in the world which includes Novak Djokovic, who has had mixed success in recent years but still remains one of the best tennis players of all time. At the 2019 US Open he lost his 4th round match against Stan Wawrinka earlier than expected due to disqualification from an event-ending racquet throw that was considered unsportsmanlike conduct by officials.
Daniil Medvedev is one of the most dominant players on tour and as a result, he has been referred to by some pundits as “the uncrowned champion” for not having won a Grand Slam. He recently finished runner-up at the 2019 US Open following an epic five set battle with Rafael Nadal in the final but his other two appearances have seen him lose before reaching that stage including being eliminated from last year’s tournament against Dominic Thiem in the semi-final.
Tennis fans around the world were shocked to hear Roger Federer would need another knee surgery and will be out for several months. Whether he will return, at age 40 years old is in question.
US Open Tennis Women’s Favourites
The women’s US Open is wider open than the men’s competition as there isn’t a truly domination player like Novak Djokovic in the women’s game. This can often make for exciting viewing as the games are a lot harder to call and there is more of a chance to see an upset.
Naomi Osaka has the best odds to win. Serena Williams could also take it all too, but she has not been in the best of form recently. Belinda Bencic and Ashleigh Barty are both still in with a chance thanks to their recent successes at the Olympics and Wimbledon respectively.
The US Open will be difficult though as they play on hard courts which gives players like Aryna Sabalenka or Sofia Kenin better chances than usual due to them playing more often on this surface type domestically.
