The US Open is right around the corner. Qualifiers have been ongoing since Tuesday, with players trying to earn entry into the fourth Grand Slam of the year.
The US Open Betting Odds have shifted for some players based on their performance at last week’s Western & Southern Open. One former US Open finalist is out due to injury, other top players face injury concerns, and Novak Djokovic is still unlikely to play due to his vaccination status.

Alex Zverev, the Olympic gold medalist and one of tennis’ rising stars, won’t be participating in the US Open due to an ankle injury. One of the betting favorites as of last week, Zverev hasn’t played since suffering the injury during a semi-final match against Rafael Nadal in the French Open.
Zverev, who had played in 27 consecutive Grand Slams before being forced to miss Wimbledon, was a semi-finalist at last year’s US Open and reached the final the year prior against Dominic Thiem. He’ll be replaced in this year’s draw by American Stefan Kozlov.
Borna Coric just moved up to a career-best No. 29 in the world, but you can be forgiven if you aren’t too familiar with the 25-year-old Croatian. Before winning the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati last week, Coric was ranked No. 152.
However, not only did he win his first tournament of the year, but he did so in remarkable fashion. Coric took down Rafael Nadal in the Round of 32 and then defeated Roberto Bautista Agut, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Cameron Norrie, and Stefanos Tsitsipas. As a result, his odds of winning the US Open have lowered all the way to +2500, which puts him in 12th.
Women’s Outright Odds
- Iga Swiatek +300
- Simona Halep +700
- Elena Rybakina +1100
- Naomi Osaka +1200
- Aryna Sabalenka +1400
- Cori Gauff +1600
- Emma Raducanu +1600
- Carolina Garcia +1600
- Bianca Andreescu +2000
- Ons Jabeur +2000
Raducanu and Garcia Rising
Caroline Garcia, like Coric on the men’s side, also had her odds of winning the US Open lowered considerably after winning the Western & Southern Open. While her path to victory wasn’t as impressive, she did defeat more established players like Jessica Pegula, Aryna Sabalenka, and Petra Kvitova.
Garcia won the French Open doubles earlier this year but hasn’t had much singles success in a Grand Slam. She’s 10-9 at the US Open in her career and hasn’t advanced beyond the third Round. Her best-ever Grand Slam result is a quarter-final finish at the French Open in 2017, so don’t get too excited.
Emma Raducanu, meanwhile, has also been a popular betting option as of late. The defending US Open champion is starting to turn her play around and resemble the player who dominated last year in New York. She defeated Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka last week before losing to Jessica Pegula.
Coco Gauff has the sixth-shortest odds to win the US Open but is fading due to potential injury concerns. Gauff was forced to withdraw from last week’s Western & Southern Open during a match against Marie Bouzkova and left the court in tears.
“I promise I am ok! The world is not ending, lol! I have been told it is most likely a really minor sprain, so everything should be healed soon,” Gauff wrote in a message on social media. However, there’s been no confirmation as to her status for the US Open.
