US Open Tennis Odds - Ten Contenders to Win

Take a swing at the latest betting odds and markets for the US Open Grand Slam Tournament here at BetStars.

When is the US Open tennis?

The final Grand Slam of the year takes place at Flushing Meadows next week and we have highlighted some of the main men in our US Open betting preview.

Rafael Nadal heads to New York as the defending men's champion after winning the tournament for the third time with a straight-sets victory over big-serving South African Kevin Anderson.

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is the favourite, but take a look at our US tennis Open odds for the top 10 contenders to help you pick out this year's winner.

Novak Djokovic

US Open odds: 9/4

Appearances: 12

Grand Slam titles: 13

Last five years at US Open: DNP-F-W-SF-F

Djokovic missed last year's tournament with an elbow injury but he returns to Flushing Meadows bang in form after winning Wimbledon for the fourth time to land his 13th Grand Slam title.

Last week at the Western and Southern Open the Serb ended a run of five defeats in the final to become the first player to win all Masters 1000 titles with a straight-sets victory over Roger Federer.

It's been a remarkable turnaround for Djokovic who underwent elbow surgery in February to resolve a problem which had been troubling him for two years and his performances over the last couple of months suggest a third US Open title is a possibility.

Djokovic is now the favourite with tennis odds of 11/4 and who are we to argue he won't repeat his successes of 2011 and 2015.

Rafael Nadal

US Open odds: 11/4

Appearances: 13

Grand Slam titles: 17

Last five years at US Open: W-R4-R3-DNP-W

Nadal dropped the opening set three times on his way to winning the 2017 US Open for a third occasion during which he did not face a single player inside the world's top 30.

Last year was the final time the Spaniard's uncle and long-time coach Toni Nadal was by his side so his 16th Grand Slam proved to be a fitting end to their professional relationship.

Nadal struggled with knee and hip injuries around the turn of the year but his 11th French Open title and pulsating Wimbledon semi-final defeat by Djokovic prove he is firing on all cylinders once again.

The left-hander warmed up for the US Open by winning the Rogers Cup in Toronto for his 80th career title, the second highest of all time but still 18 behind Federer.

Roger Federer

US Open odds: 9/2

Appearances: 17

Grand Slam titles: 20

Last five years at US Open: QF-DNP-F-SF-R4

The Swiss legend has not won this Grand Slam since the last of his five successive titles in 2008, but the renaissance of a player who turned 37 earlier this month means he is the second favourite in the US Open betting behind Djokovic.

Last year Federer was knocked out by Juan Martin del Potro in the last eight in a repeat of the 2009 US Open final which the Argentinian won in a five-set epic.

Federer skipped this year's demanding French Open to ensure he is in the best possible shape for the big tournaments played on fast surfaces and a 21st Grand Slam looked a possibility at Wimbledon but he threw away a two-set lead in his quarter-final with Anderson to end hopes of a ninth title.

However, it would be foolish to write off Federer who has won the Australian Open in the last two years and looked in great shape in Cincinnati last week.

Alexander Zverev

US Open odds: 8/1

Appearances: 3

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at US Open: R2-R2-R1-DNP-DNP

The hugely-talented German has proved his versatility by winning several titles on hard court and clay over the last couple of years, the last of which came at the Citi Open in Washington earlier this month - his ninth of a blossoming career.

Zverev has reached the quarter-final stage of a Grand Slam just once in 13 attempts but at 21 he has time on his side to become a great champion.

Last year the bottom half of the draw opened up for Sascha but he exited in the second round to world number 61 Borna Coric and later admitted his performance was "upsetting" after playing "a very bad match". Needs to up his game at the big tournaments.

Juan Martin del Potro

US Open odds: 12/1

Appearances: 9

Grand Slam titles: 1

Last five years at US Open: SF-QF-DNP-DNP-R2

The Argentinian returns to the scene of his greatest triumph nine years ago when he twice came back from a set down to beat Federer in the US Open final.

Finally healthy after a series of wrist injuries left him contemplating retiring from the sport, Del Potro threatened to cause an upset by taking the opening set in last year's semi-final against Nadal, who then lost just five games in securing his place in the showpiece.

Nadal also beat him at the same stage of the French Open this year and then in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, so Del Potro will be keeping a close eye on the draw.

Loves hard courts and already has a couple of titles to his name on that surface this year which have helped lift him to a career-high third in the world rankings, so as long as he stays fit and his booming right hand is in working order, Del Potro has a chance of winning a second Grand Slam title.

Andy Murray

US Open odds: 14/1

Appearances: 12

Grand Slam titles: 3

Last five years at US Open: DNP-QF-R4-QF-QF

Murray's US Open tennis odds have remained stable at 15/2 despite having played just seven matches this year, none of which have been at a Grand Slam.

The former world number one won his first Grand Slam at the US Open in 2012 but his chances of repeating that success have been hampered by a hip injury which required surgery in January.

Murray withdrew from the Citi Open in Washington at the start of the month after his third-round match finished at 3am and last week was dumped out of the opening round in Cincinnati, so his prepartion has hardly been ideal.

The Scot's last appearance at Flushing Meadows came two years ago when he lost a five-set thriller to Kei Nishikori.

Boring, Miserable, no personality. Big ❀️ though.

Marin Cilic

US Open odds: 16/1

Appearances: 9

Grand Slam titles: 1

Last five years at US Open: R3-R3-SF-W-DNP

Cilic heads into the tournament in good form and in with a shout of repeating his US Open triumph of four years ago when he beat Nishikori in straight sets.

Since then the Croat has reached the Wimbledon and Australian Open finals in the last 13 months as he prepares to play on one of his favourite surfaces.

Despite a shock second-round exit by world number 82 Guido Pella at Wimbledon last month, Cilic's only defeats since then have come against Nadal and Djokovic so we expect the Croat to go deep this year at excellent tennis betting odds of 18/1.

Nick Kyrgios

US Open odds: 20/1

Appearances: 5

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at US Open: R1-R3-R1-R3-R1

Kyrgios has yet to get beyond the third round in five appearances at the US Open and his recent form suggests he won't be breaking that habit this time around.

Despite getting the year off to a cracking start by winning a hardcourt title at the Brisbane International and reaching the semi-finals in Stuttgart and at Queen's in the summer, Kyrgios is still struggling to fulfil his undoubted talent.

The 23-year-old Australian pulled out of this month's Citi Open with a hip injury that led to him retiring from his quarter-final against Britain's Cameron Norrie in Atlanta and although he seems to be moving freely his temperament and fitness remain a concern.

Stan Wawrinka

US Open odds: 25/1

Appearances: 12

Grand Slam titles: 3

Last five years at US Open: DNP-W-SF-QF-SF

Was unable to defend his US Open title last year after undergoing knee surgery in August which brought an end to his season, but 12 months later the Swiss is starting to play like his old self.

The 2014 Australian Open champion also had a troubled start to the year so if you're planning on getting involved in tennis betting in the summer, odds of 20/1 are perhaps short for a player that continues to struggle with fitness.

The 33-year-old Swiss lost to world number 234 Donald Young in Washington, but ran Nadal and Federer close in Toronto and Cincinnati recently so it looks his injury troubles are behind him ahead of his trip to New York.

Wawrinka has reached at least the quarter-finals in his last four appearances at Flushing Meadows, but being just outside the world's top 100 means he could face a tough opener.

Dominic Thiem

US Open odds: 40/1

Appearances: 4

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at US Open: R4-R4-R3-R4-DNP

Thiem has made the second week in 75% of his four appearances at Flushing Meadows and although most of his titles have come on clay, the Austrian won on the hard courts at Acapulco two years ago.

Looked to be on the brink of a first US Open quarter-final last year when he took the first two sets against Del Potro, only for the Argentinian to save two match points at 5-3 down in the fourth before taking the decider despite suffering from flu and fever.

Ended Nadal's run of winning 50 successive sets on clay with a 7-5 6-3 victory in the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open, but has looked out of sorts since reaching this year's French Open final. Needs to step up his game on the quicker surfaces if he is to challenge for Grand Slam honours.
