The Cincinnati Masters concluded on Sunday with some surprising results. Borna Coric, now world No. 29 after moving up 123 spots, won the men’s draw and defeated top-ranked players like Felix Auger-Aliassime, Cameron Norrie, and Stefanos Tsitsipas along the way. Caroline Garcia won her third title of the season in the women’s draw and moved up to world No. 17.
The ATP Winston-Salem Open and WTA Tennis in the Land and Championnats Banque Nationale de Granby events are ongoing this week, but most of the top players are resting in anticipation for the US Open, the fourth Grand Slam of the year.
Let’s check out the top US Open Betting favorites for the men’s and women’s draw.
Top Tennis Betting Odds for the Upcoming WTA and ATP 2022 US Open Tournaments
- Novak Djokovic (+150)
Novak Djokovic’s status for the US Open is still up in the air, but with just a week remaining before the start of the tournament, it’s unlikely the 22-time Grand Slam winner is able to play. Djokovic missed the Australian Open earlier this year due to his vaccination status.
If he does play, it’s hard to imagine anyone beating him. He and Rafael Nadal have combined to win the first three Grand Slams of the season, but it feels as if this year’s US Open is a chance for a new star to emerge.
- Daniil Medvedev (+225)
Daniil Medvedev could certainly cement his status as the best player in the world with a victory at the US Open. The defending champion is one of a handful of players to win a Grand Slam not named Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, or Roger Federer in the last 15 years.
Medvedev is the world No. 1. He was unable to play at Wimbledon because the All England Club banned Russian players, so he’ll be extra motivated to win at the US Open.
- Carlos Alcaraz (+350)
If there’s a new star to be made at this year’s tournament, it’s likely Carlos Alcaraz. The 19-year-old Spaniard has drawn comparisons to Nadal and could very well win his first Grand Slam at the US Open.
Alcaraz has won more than $4.7 million in prize money this season and is ranked a career-best world No. 4. He’s 44-9 this year and has won four titles.
- Iga Swiatek (+300)
If there’s ever been a betting favorite that doesn’t inspire all that much confidence, it’s Iga Swiatek, which is crazy to say considering the impressive start she had to her season.
At one point, Swiatek had won more than 30 matches in a row and looked unbeatable. Then she suffered a shocking third-round loss at Wimbledon and hasn’t been the same since. She recently lost to American Madison Keys in the Round of 16 at the Cincinnati Masters.
- Simona Halep (+700)
Veteran Simona Halep isn’t the betting favorite here but is probably the actual favorite based on her play as of late. Halep won the Canadian Open two weeks ago and was in the semi-final at Wimbledon, where she lost to eventual champion Elena Rybakina.
Halep did withdraw from the Cincinnati Masters last week due to injury, but she’s not expected to miss the US Open.
- Elena Rybakina (+1100)
Rybakina broke through at Wimbledon to win her first Grand Slam. The 23-year-old was only able to participate in the tournament because she took up Kazakhstan citizenship – she was born in Russia.
Since Wimbledon, Rybakina has had mixed results. She lost her opening match at the Silicon Valley Classic and then lost to Coco Gauff in the Round of 32 at the Canadian Open. She’s coming off of a quarter-final loss to Madison Keys at the Cincinnati Masters.
