- Novak Djokovic is at +155 to win the U.S. but may not play.
- Rafael Nadal has +500 odds to win the U.S. Open.
- Iga Swiatek is favored to win the women’s U.S. Open at +350 odds.
NEW YORK – The men’s and women’s U.S. Open qualifiers are set to begin on Tuesday while the first round begins on August 29. That said, it is time to start looking at the odds for both tournaments where Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek are the favorites to win.
Djokovic Pulling Out Of U.S. Open Could Affect Odds
Men’s U.S. Open Odds
- Novak Djokovic +155
- Daniil Medvedev +225
- Rafael Nadal +500
- Carlos Alcaraz +600
First and foremost while Novak Djokovic is favored to win the U.S. Open on online sportsbooks, signs are pointing towards him not even playing do to not being vaccinated for COVID-19. Following Djokovic’s odds both Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal are safe bets to make.
Medvedev is currently the number one ranked men’s singles tennis player in the world and has seen his odds drop from the +300 they originally opened at to +225. Medvedev is also the reigning U.S. Open champion after he won in 2021 with +400 odds.
Nadal’s odds have been trending in the right direction as well after opening at +800 and making their way down to +500. Nadal, at 36 years old, has not let age catch up to him at all as he has won two major tournaments already in 2022 in the French Open (+400) and Australian Open (+550). He is also no stranger to winning the U.S. Open with four total wins with two of them coming in the last five years.

Carlos Alcaraz has been one of the top up-and-coming prospects in tennis in recent years at just 19 years old and already ranked the fourth tennis player in the country. His only downfall is that he does not perform well in major tournaments. He lost in the third round of the Australian Open, quarterfinals of the French Open, and round of 16 in Wimbledon.
Swiatek Stands Alone As U.S. Open Favorite
Women’s U.S. Open Odds
- Iga Swiatek +350
- Simona Halep +750
- Aryna Sabalenka +1600
- Coco Gauff +1600
- Elena Rybakina +1600
- Naomi Osaka +1800
To no surprise, Iga Swiatek is the lone favorite on the women’s bracket as the only player with odds to win under +500. She is currently the number one ranked women’s player in the country at just 21 years old. She already has a major win under her belt in 2022 after going in as the favorite and winning the French Open with -115 pre-tournament odds.
It is also worth noting that her odds for the 2022 U.S. Open, opened at +1200 back in December 2021 and have since shot down to the +350 they’re at now. One of the main reasons behind that has been the retirement of Ashleigh Barty.
