2021 US Open Betting Preview

The tennis world awoke to a significant turn of events as the living legend Roger Federer announced that knee surgery would keep him out of the next major championship and could potentially throw the remainder of his career into jeopardy. Already one of the most accomplished, if not the most accomplished, men’s tennis player on the planet, the Swiss Master will face an uphill battle to regain his fitness going forward.

This has also had significant ramifications in the betting markets as the bookmakers were forced to realign their odds and it looks as though punters who were able to back Novak Djokovic early on will be the main beneficiaries. 

Several top European bookmakers had already been listing the Serbian ace as the odds-on favourite and his price has dropped from around 20/21 all the way down to 8/11 in a number of instances. With Djokovic having proven his ability to dominate on the courts at Arthur Ashe Stadium, many punters will be thinking that the only thing which can unseat Djokovic is Djokovic himself. 

Over the past few months, we have seen a number of significant on-court meltdowns from Djokovic and one has to wonder whether he will be able to contain his volatile personality. Many of us remember him having to withdraw from a major tournament after hitting a ball girl with a ball struck in anger - a major blemish to Djokovic’s public profile. 

His main competition is expected to come from Daniil Medvedev who can be backed around a 5/1 price tag with a few bookmakers going as high as a 6/1 shout on him. He has proven that he can hang tough in major championships like this one and to see him make the final wouldn’t be a major surprise. 

Alexander Zverev remains in the mix as well with a price of around 8/1 while Stefanos Tsitsipas is priced around an 11/1 listing. Rafael Nadal could also be set to make an impression with a hefty price of 12/1.
