US Open Tennis Draw
The US Open tennis draw won’t be available until a few days before the main tournament begins but the world rankings give a good indication which part of the draw the main contenders will line up in.
US Open Men’s Draw
Novak Djokovic heads the US Open tennis standings and his biggest threat in the first quarter of the draw could be Alexander Zverev. The world number one could go on to face Roger Federer in the semi-finals, as the swiss is likely to be drawn in the second quarter.
Dominic Thiem should be the top seed in the third quarter and the world number four could have trouble from former US Open finalist Kei Nishikori and recent Wimbledon semi-finalist Roberto Bautista-Agut.
Three-time US Open champion and world number two Rafa Nadal should be the main attraction in the fourth quarter. The rapidly improving Greek player Stefanos Tsitsipas could be his biggest threat.
US Open Women’s Draw
Serena Williams is the early favorite with the bookmakers to win the 2019 Women’s Singles and the current WTA world number nine could avoid some of the other big names if drawn in the second quarter. That could set up an interesting semi-final clash with world number one Ashleigh Barty.
The bottom-half of the draw could potentially produce a semi-final between 2018 US Open Champion Naomi Osaka and this year’s Wimbledon winner Simone Halep.
US Open Odds and Tips
Rafa Nadal looks a great value bet. We like his 5/1 odds to win the US Open. The winner in 2010, 2013, and 2017, he looks to have the easiest route to the final, with Djokovic and Federer possibly facing an exhausting semi-final against each other.
Serena Williams heads the US Open women’s betting. Having not won the US Open for five years, she is a bet to avoid. World number one Ashleigh Barty is fancied to build on her US Open doubles win in 2018 and claim her second singles slam of the year.
