World No.1 and No.2 Out!
Just last week, the offered 2021 U.S. Open outright betting odds made it very clear which two women tennis players are favored to win and who should deliver without any issues. Ashleigh Barty was priced as the main favorite to win the Grand Slam title at +275, followed by Naomi Osaka at +450.
The two were a clear cut above the rest of the field, with Aryna Sabalenka, as the third-favorite, priced as high as +1000 on the U.S.
Open outright betting market. Seeing those betting odds, it would be fair to assume that either Osaka or Barty will win the title – but you would be wrong.
In an unexpected turn of events over the weekend, both Barty and Osaka crashed out of the 2021 U.S. Open, which effectively opened up the field, with five players now priced at +750 or under.
Osaka crashed out of the tournament on Saturday, with a 7-5, 6-7, 4-6 defeat against world no.73 Leylah Annie Fernandez. Meanwhile, Barty fell apart against world no. 43 Shelby Rogers (2-6, 6-1, 6-7) on Sunday.
Sabalenka, who was priced as the third-most likely player to succeed just a few days back, is now the main favorite to win her career’s first Grand Slam tournament at +240. The Belarus tennis star is already through into the quarter-finals, where she will meet with Barbora Krejcikova.
Due to the massive shakeup in the outright betting odds, Elina Svitolina (+450) and Karolina Pliskova (+600) have now emerged as the second and third betting favorites to win the 2021 U.S. Open, respectively.
No Surprises in the Men’s Side of The Competition
While the female’s field turned upside down over the weekend, the men’s side of the competition hasn’t produced as many shocking moments. The main three favorites in Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, and Alexander Zverev are all still in the race for the title, priced at similar odds than where they were before the weekend.
Djokovic continues to lead the way at -160, followed by Medvedev in second at +200, while Zverev kept ahold of his tag as the third-favorite at +450.
Djokovic and Zverev both still need to face their R4 opponents, while Medvedev is already through into the quarter-finals. Djokovic will face off against Jason Tyler Brooksby, while Zverev needs to make it past Jannik Sinner.
Medvedev, meanwhile, eased past Daniel Evans with 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, and is now set to face Botic van de Zandschulp in the first round of the finals.
