Pre-tournament hype: 2022 US Open

This year’s US Open will see reigning champion Daniil Medvedev return to Grand Slam action having been denied entry to Wimbledon this summer, while 19-year-old women’s champion Emma Raducanu will look to repeat the magic of 2021 when she became the only qualifier in major history to win a final.

Russian world No.1 Medvedev, who defeated Novak Djokovic in last year’s final in straight sets, will defend his Men’s Singles title against the likes of Rafael Nadal, Nick Kyrgios and Carlos Alcaraz.

As the 9th favorite, Raducanu may not be the front-runner to win the Women’s Singles again but enters the Open in resurgent form. World No.1 Iga Swiatek is way ahead in the bookies’ odds, followed by second-favorite Simona Halep, Naomi Osaka and Elena Rybakina.

The US Open will be the final Grand Slam tournament of 2022, following the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon. Despite the All England Club’s decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from Wimbledon this year, the US Open has not done so.

One notable absentee from the men’s game as things stand will be Novak Djokovic. Although the Serb was allowed (and triumphed) at Wimbledon in July, the US does not allow unvaccinated non-US citizens to enter the country. However, with the country currently pondering changes to its entry policy, the ban may be lifted just in time for Djokovic to play. 

Stars to Watch at the US Open 2022

Men’s Singles

The Men’s singles tournament is shaping up to be one of the closest in years, with Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Nick Kyrgios all in with a strong shout.

If Djokovic fails to gain entry to the United States, last year’s winner Medvedev will begin the Open as the betting favorite.

2020 winner Dominic Thiem is a good outside bet as a wildcard entry, as is the man he beat in the final that year, Alexander Zverev. 


Novak Djokovic (2.49)

It isn’t even clear if three-time US Open winner Novak Djokovic will play this year, but the Serb is nonetheless the betting favorite leading up to the tournament. 

Last year’s runner-up, who was denied a first Men’s Singles Grand Slam (winning all four Open’s) since 1969, put a difficult six months behind him with victory at Wimbledon in July, defeating Nick Kyrgios in the final.

Should he make it to the tournament this year, Djokovic will be eager to avenge his final defeat in 2021 and equal Rafael Nadal’s record 22 Open wins.

Daniil Medvedev (3.29)

Hot on the heels in the betting table is Russian sensation Daniil Medvedev, who earned his first major title by defeating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in last year’s US Open final. 

2022 has had its ups and downs for Medvedev - the Russian became the first player outside of the Big Four (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray) to be ranked No.1 in the world since 2004, but was barred from entering this year’s edition of Wimbledon.

Known for his powerful serve and dominance on hard courts, Medvedev will fight tooth and nail to hold on to his No.1 ranking and enters the US Open 2022 as the second favorite.

Carlos Alcaraz (4.90)

Up-and-coming star Carlos Alcaraz is the third favorite to claim glory at the US Open 2022 despite being just 19 years old. Alcaraz became one of the youngest quarterfinalists in US Open history last year and only lost due to retirement from a leg injury.

The Spanish sensation made headlines this year after his excellent performances at the Madrid Open in May, defeating both Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic before triumphing over reigning champion Alexander Zverev in the final.

Outside Bets

Stefanos Tsitsipas (15.20)

One of the sport’s most exciting players, Greek all-court player Stefanos Tsitsipas is still searching for his first Grand Slam title after coming up short against Novak Djokovic in the 2021 French Open final, despite holding a 2-0 set lead at one point.

Tsitsipas reached the semifinals of the Australian Open this year before ending the Italian Open as runner-up. When fired up, the Greek is capable of defeating any player, on any surface.

Alexander Zverev (16.40)

Alexander Zverev will return from injury to compete as the 2nd-seed at this year’s US Open after reaching the semi-final in 2021, taking Novak Djokovic all five sets.

The German missed Wimbledon 2022 after sustaining an ankle ligament injury in the semi-final of the French Open 2022 in May. Provided he is all healed up, Zverev will be the dark horse pick for many in this year’s US Open.

Women’s Singles

The US Open 2021 Women’s Singles tournament went down as one of the greatest shocks in sporting history after unknown qualifier Emma Raducanu pulled off a miraculous championship victory. The 18-year-old Brit won all 10 of her matches without dropping a single set but isn’t among the favorites this time around. 

World No.1 Iga Swiatek leads the pack, with Simona Halep, Naomi Osaka, Elena Rybakina and Coco Gauff making up the rest of the likely winners.

The Favorites

Iga Swiatek (3.30)

The clear favorite to win the Women’s Singles title is Polish sensation and world No.1 Iga Swiatek. The 21-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic run this year, achieving a stunning 37-game winning streak before defeat in the third round at Wimbledon.

While her more-recent form may be a cause for concern following premature defeats in the Poland Open and Canadian Open, Swiatek’s aggression and speed will be tough to overcome.

To further boost her chances, the Pole is excellent on a hard court, winning 90% of her matches on the surface over 2022 and claiming three titles in the process.

Simona Halep (7.92)

30-year-old Romanian Simona Halep will be the second favorite to claim the US Open 2022 following an excellent recent run of form. 

Fresh off a victory in the final of the Canadian Open, the former world No.1 will want to put her Wimbledon 2022 semi-final disappointment behind her and win her first major title since 2019.

Known to favor clay surfaces, Halep has nonetheless claimed 10 hard-court titles over her career, although she has yet to win a hard-court Open.

Naomi Osaka (9.05)

Since bursting onto the global tennis scene in 2018, Naomi Osaka has claimed four major titles, including victory at the US Open in 2018 and 2020.

Osaka’s form has been on the decline after making her mental health struggles public in 2021. Having dropped out of the Top 50 rankings, the Japanese star also pulled out of Wimbledon this year and was beaten early in the Cincinnati Open.

Osaka also raised eyebrows after parting ways with coach Wim Fisette, who coached her to glory during her US Open 2020 and Australian Open 2021 triumphs,  just a month out from the tournament.

In With a Shot

Elena Rybakina (13.20)

Elena Rybakina made history as the first Kazakh player to ever win a major title following her victory at Wimbledon 2022, defeating world No.2 Ons Jabeur.

Rybakina also saw off Simona Halep, who begins the US Open as the second favorite, in two sets in the semi-final of her Wimbledon run. 

The tall Kazakh, who stands at 6”1, has a game perhaps better suited to a grass court but is more than capable of claiming Open glory no matter the surface.

Emma Raducanu (16.20)

Last year’s champion Emma Raducanu has been in red-hot form during the build-up to the US Open, earning dominant victories over Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka at the Cincinnati Open. 

However, her longer-term performances since her shock Open victory last year have been disappointing, leaving her as the 9th favorite.

Cloudbet Selections: 

Winner (Men’s Singles): Novak Djokovic – 2.49

Djokovic may have lost last year’s US Open final, but many speculated it was due to a mix of fatigue and injuries. Expect the imperious Serb to continue doing what he does best - win.

Winner (Women’s Singles): Iga Swiatek – 3.30

Swiatek put together a sensational run of 37 consecutive wins this year and brings this momentum into the US Open. Her hard court form has also been excellent, so don’t be surprised if she dominates all on her way to glory.
