The U.S. Open the fourth tennis Grand Slam tournament of the year happening after the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon. It is played on hardcourt surface at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows in New York. This year’s tournament will be the 139th edition of the only tennis Major played in the United States.
The 2019 U.S. Open tennis tournament is scheduled for August 26 to September 8, 2019. Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka are the reigning champions and they are expected to be back this year to defend their respective titles. Let’s take a look at how the odds boards look right now:
Men’s U.S. Open Winner Odds
The oddsmakers have pulled out the outright odds for the Men’s side of the draw. However, the odds for the two semi-final matches are already out and we have them for you:
Odds were taken from Titan Bet as of 9/05/19
Daniil Medvedev needed 38 games and four sets to oust Stan Wawrinka who was having an excellent run in the tournament. Medvedev won 73% of his first serve points and 58% of his second serve points to dominate his opponent with his serving game. To beat Dimitrov though, he needs to limit his double faults and unforced errors.
Grigor Dimitrov beat Rodger Federer in five sets which included 46 games. He won 74% of his first serve points and 53% of his second serve points. Dimitrov won 68% of his total serve points and got five breaks out of 15 opportunities. Although Dimitrov looked good, there was no doubt that Federer wasn’t 100% in that match.
Dimitrov has blown hot and cold this season while Medvedev has been more consistent all-year round, especially on the hard court. Medvedev has won 11 straight on the hard court while Dimitrov is 0-2 in Grand Slam semifinals. Prediction: Daniil Medvedev
Odds were taken from Mybookie.ag as of 9/05/19
Rafael Nadal needed four sets to dispose of Marin Cilic. It was his first true test of the tournament and he passed it with flying colors. With Djokovic out, Nadal is the highest ranked player remaining and there is no doubt that he is in supreme form right now.
Schwartzman is coming off a big win over Alexander Zverev whom he defeated in four sets. Schwartzmann dropped the first set and won the next three sets to secure the upset. He broke Zverev’s serve 8 times and won almost 50% of his receiving points. After Zverev broke his serve five times, Schwartzman must serve better to beat Nadal.
Nadal looks in terrific form right now and he has the edge over his opponent in head to head matches and in serving. I think Rafa takes this match and heads to the finals. Prediction: Rafael Nadal
Women’s U.S. Open Women’s Odds
Here are the odds to win the U.S. Open Women’s Tennis tournament. Odds were taken from TitanBet as of 9/5/19:
|Bianca Vanessa Andreescu||+350|
The women’s semifinals will pit Serena Williams against Elina Svitolina and Bianca Vanessa Andreescu against Belinda Bencic. To me, the winner of the tournament will be the winner of the Williams vs Svitolina semifinal showdown. Serena Williams has looked in terrific form in this tournament and she was dominant in her win against Wang Qiang, dropping just one match to get the win. On the other hand, Svitolina was also impressive against Joanna Konta where she won 80% of her service points and 45% of her receiving points.
This one’s interesting because while Williams is the tennis betting favorite, she’s struggled against elite players as of late. Remember that Simona Halep outclassed Serena at Wimbledon. Svitolina meanwhile is playing her second straight Grand Slam semifinals and she has been consistent this season. I know Williams has looked fit in this tournament but Svitolina is going to test that. I think Svitolina is going to upset Williams here and she will beat the winner of the other semifinal match to win the 2019 U.S. Open. Prediction: Elina Svitolina
