After a wild Tuesday night in which all but the singles quarter-final matches were wiped out due to rain, we’re off and running at the US Open. There are six players left in both men’s and women’s singles draws, with another two players due to leave the tournament following Wednesday’s quarter-final matches.
Casper Ruud knocked off Matteo Berrettini in three sets in Tuesday’s first quarter-final, and Karen Khachonov overcame Nick Kyrgios, who later released his frustration on his rackets on the sidelines, in a five-set thriller on Tuesday night.
In the women’s draw, American teenage sensation Coco Gauff fell in straight sets to Caroline Garcia, who is arguably the hottest player in tennis right now – male or female. Garcia will play Ons Jabeur, who defeated Ilja Tomljanovic in her quarter-final match earlier in the day. It’s time to look at the remaining quarterfinals matchups so you can continue betting against the US Open Odds.
Updated 2022 US Open Betting Opportunities Heading Into the Quarterfinals
Men’s Outright Odds
- Carlos Alcaraz +175
- Casper Ruud +275
- Jannik Sinner +375
- Karen Khachanov +550
- Andrey Rublev +900
- Frances Tiafoe +1100
Kyrgios Still Chasing First Grand Slam Title
Kyrgios is arguably one of the most talented players on the ATP Tour, and he has shown that this season. For the most part, he’s been able to push aside his emotions and angry outbursts and has played quality, entertaining tennis. That all came to a disappointing end on Tuesday night.
Kyrgios was a popular pick to win the US Open, especially after reaching his first Grand Slam final earlier this year at Wimbledon and then defeating world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev in the Round of 16. His spot in the semifinals seemed all but assured, but Khachanov was the better player on Tuesday night.
Andrey Rublev (-125) meets Frances Tiafoe (+100) at 2 p.m. EST today at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Both players are unlikely quarter-finalists but have taken down some of the world’s best players en route to reaching this point.
Tiafoe upset Rafael Nadal in the Round of 16 and has a ton of momentum heading into the match. As the only American left in the tournament, he’ll also have the vocal support of the crowd. Tiafoe advancing would make for a great story, and he’s certainly capable of it.
Jannik Sinner (+150) meets Carlos Alcaraz (-188) in the other quarter-final under the lights on Wednesday night. Alcaraz is now the betting favorite to win the tournament, but he’s 0-2 against Sinner this year and previously lost to him at Wimbledon. The future of the sport will be on display in this match between two young guns but expect Sinner to keep rolling against Alcaraz.
Women’s Outright Odds
- Iga Swiatek +187
- Caroline Garcia +187
- Ons Jabeur +450
- Aryna Sabalenka +700
- Jessica Pegula +900
- Karolina Pliskova +1100
Karolina Pliskova (+100) takes on Aryna Sabalenka (-125) in the first quarter-final, while tournament betting favorite Iga Swiatek (-225) meets American favorite Jessica Pegula (+175) under the lights.
Sabalenka is coming off of a three-set victory over Danielle Collins, while Pliskova won a three-set affair against Victoria Azarenka. Expect Sabalenka to move a step closer to winning her first singles Grand Slam – she’s a two-time doubles champion.
Pegula, like Tiafoe, will benefit from the home crowd advantage. She’s 1-2 against Swiatek in her career but is 1-1 against her on the hard court. Pegula has lost only one set this tournament. Expect her to take down Swiatek in three sets.
