Following the withdrawal of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, now Novak Djokovic is also out of this year’s US Open. In the US Open 2020 winner odds world No5 Daniil Medvedev is the favorite while in the women’s event former US Open winner Naomi Osaka has the smallest odds. But Serena Williams is still in the competition and fighting for her 24th GS title.
In both events, only 8 players are left now who continue now in the quarter-finals. World No1 Djokovic was disqualified from the men’s singles after he accidentally hit a line judge with a ball. So now there is a chance for other players to get their first Grand Slam victory. Like Russian Daniil Medvedev who is facing his compatriot, Andrey Rublev in the quarter-final, or German Alexander Zverev who plays against Australian Alex de Minaur. In the women’s singles, Karolina Pliskova is out but further top seeds, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka are still in the competition. And there are former top players like Azarenka and Pironkova who are playing in their best form again.
US Open 2020 winner odds favor Medvedev to get his first Grand Slam title
Online sportsbooks in Russia are hoping for their local hero’s victory and offering the smallest odds, 2.61 for Medvedev’s win. He has been very confident so far and hasn’t lost any set yet. He had already reached the final last year but he was defeated there by Nadal. But now the Russian player has a huge chance of winning and getting his first Grand Slam victory.
Alexander Zverev can be his biggest rival, who knocked out French Mannarino and Spanish Fokina in the previous rounds. He will face Borna Coric in the quarter-final now where he has the odds of 1.37 to win the game. The German youngster managed to get to the semi-final this year’s Australian Open which is his best GS result so far. He also won the 2018 ATP final as the youngest winner in the tournament’s history. While Austrian Dominic Thiem is also in the favorites according to the US Open 2020 winner odds. He’s defeated Croatian Cilic and Canadian Auger-Aliassime earlier and has the odds of 3.20 to go all the way along.
Can Serena get her 24th GS title?
One of the biggest questions in the world of women’s tennis is still open. Can Serena Williams equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles? She has a great chance now after several top players have withdrawn from the tournament including world No1 Barty and No2 Halep. With No1 seed Karolina Pliskova also out, Williams might have the biggest chance to achieve the record and win her 24th Grand Slam. Even though she lost four finals in the last two years including two US Open finals.
One of her defeaters was Naomi Osaka who is still in the competition. She is the biggest favorite to win it with the odds of 2.66. The Japanese player will face another American, Shelby Rogers in the quarter-final, which should be an easy game for the current world No10. She can meet Williams in the final which should be a great game to watch. But Belarusian Victoria Azarenka is also in superb form. She has odds of 5.00 by online gambling sites in Russia to win her first Grand Slam after 7 years.
