STARNBERG, July 28, 2022 (Guest Post)

The US Open is just around the corner. The wildly popular Grand Slam event will run from Monday, August 29, through Sunday, September 11. On the men’s side, Daniil Medvedev will be looking to replicate the tournament-winning run he enjoyed at Flushing Meadows in 2021, while 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz Garfia looks to build on his recent successes at the best dogecoin casino sites.

Also in the running is the four-time US Open winner Rafael Nadal who recently defeated Medvedev to win the 2022 Australian Open. We round out the top-5 favorites with the young German phenom Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic, who is seeking his 22nd Grand Slam title.

According to Tony Sloterman, product owner and marketing manager of Casino Bonus Finder, the betting action for the US Open is already heating up.  As such, let’s take a closer look at our five forerunners and their odds of winning this prestigious event.

Novak Djokovic +150

35-year-old Novak Djokovic’s 21 Grand Slam titles is second only to Rafael Nadal, who has won 22. He had already won Wimbledon in 2022 and has his eyes set on the Australian Open, which he has dominated over the past decade. However, he couldn’t participate because he is unvaccinated and Australian authorities denied entry into the country. His steadfast refusal to get the jab could hamper his plans to compete in this year’s US Open as similar vaccination rules apply. Those who want to back Djokovic at Flushing Meadows might want to take a wait-and-see approach before pulling the trigger.

Daniil Medvedev +225

Currently, at the top of the ATP rankings, Daniil Medvedev appears primed to win his second consecutive US Open title. The 25-year-old Russian, who measures in at a towering 6’6” came close to winning the 2022 Australian Open but fell to Rafael Nadal in the finals. To say that Medvedev faces tough competition is an understatement. However, he is healthy and well rested after not competing at Wimbledon. It might be worth wagering on him sooner than later as the odds would likely shorten if Djokovic can’t play.

Carlos Alcaraz Garfia +400

Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz Garfia has already made his mark on the professional men’s tennis circuit. In 2022, he became the youngest player ever to win the Rio Open, Miami Open, and Madrid Open with victories over such standouts as Alexander Zverev and Casper Ruud. Unfortunately, he can’t become the youngest men’s player to win the US Open, as Pete Sampras claimed that distinction in 1990, just 28 days after his 19th birthday. Garfia will try to build on his impressive showing at Wimbledon, in which he made it as far as the fourth round before losing to Jannik Sinner in four sets.

Rafael Nadal +550

Rafael Nadal’s 22 Grand Slam wins is the most in history. His wins at the 2022 Australian Open and 2022 French Open clearly demonstrated that the 36-year-old Spaniard has plenty left in the tank. A win at Flushing Meadows in 2022 would be Nadal’s fifth US Open title which would tie him for the most US Open crowns with the likes of Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, and the legendary Jimmy Conners. At +550, Nadal represents an awful lot of betting value.

Alexander Zverev +900

It’s been a somewhat frustrating year for 25-year-old Alexander Zverev. One of the latest setbacks came when he was forced to retire from the 2022 French Open, where he tore three ligaments in a semifinal match with Rafael Nadal. This caused the German to miss Wimbledon and undergo surgery to repair the damage. It has also put his status for the US Open in jeopardy. He has just stopped using crutches, but he has only 5 or so weeks to get himself prepared. Even if he can compete, potential backers are still uncertain whether his performance will be hampered.
