US Open 2022 Tennis Predictions

The US Open Tennis Championships, the final and fourth Grand Slam event of the year, is hosted at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City. The tournament, initially known as the US National Championships, is set to take place on Aug. 29, 2022. It was first played in 1881 as the US National Championships on grass courts in Newport, Rhode Island.

The US Open follows the same format as the other three Grand Slam tennis tournaments (the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon). It features 128-player draws for both men’s and women’s singles. The US Open will begin using the 10-point tiebreaker rule when deciding sets of matches in 2022, joining the other three major tennis tournaments.

The tournament is rich in history and features some of the most exciting storylines in all sports. Bettors can look forward to Unibet providing industry-best data and information to enhance their wagering experiences during one of the largest tennis tournaments of the year.

2022 US Open Odds Tracker

Sportsbooks have analyzed historical trends and predictive models to create a list of players’ likelihood of winning the 2022 US Open.

The US Open will be held in August, and while it is a bit early to predict a tennis champion at the US Open, the odds have already been set for the tournament.

Here is a list of the players with their respective odds of winning the tournament:

Novak Djokovic+150
Daniil Medvedev+225
Carlos Alcaraz+350
Rafael Nadal+500
Alexander Zverev+600

The current men’s singles champion of the US Open is Daniil Medvedev, who won last year’s tournament. He defeated Novak Djokovic in the 2021 final. Djokovic, who won 3 out of 4 grand slams in 2021, is still not sure about his participation in the tournament. Unless the United States government changes the rules for athletes competing in international competitions by the end of August 2022, Novak Djokovic will not be competing at the 2022 U.S. Open.

According to the tennis betting experts’ prediction, if Djokovic participates, pundits believe he could face Medvedev in the final once more and win this year; although that will depend on the draw.

Since Serena Williams’s maternity leave, the ladies’ circuit has felt open with no dominant force. In the past seven years, only two top-ranked players going into the US Open have actually won the tournament, and only three have made it to the final. The unpredictability trend of recent winners for women’s single champion continued in the 2021 US Open with the world number 150 Emma Raducanu beating the world number 73 Leylah Fernandez to win her first major at only the second attempt.

This year, pundits believe that Iga Swiatek has the best chance of winning the women’s singles championship, with the odds at +175. Naomi Osaka and Simona Halep both follow at +750 and +1,000 respectively.

The rest of the field looks fairly strong this year—plenty of players could potentially make it into the finals or even win the tournament in the singles men’s and women’s tournaments. But it’s always difficult to predict who will come out on top at any given time because tennis is such an unpredictable sport.

Final Thoughts

It is never an easy task to predict what will happen in this tournament. We have seen surprises, upsets, and tiebreakers that have lasted for a significant amount of time that have provided shocking results on occasion. The competition is so intense that many young players have surpassed the sport’s veterans. Ultimately, it’s a matter of staying fit, training hard, and catching some luck. Nothing can be said categorically until the tournament ends.

However, with all of that in mind, what can be said is that we will be able to expect to see another great Grand Slam of tennis and one that will be befitting of the fact that it will be one of the final “big competitions” of the year to take place in a year that has provided us with so many wonderful tennis moments from across the sport.

Fans in New York and around the world will certainly be cheering on their favorite players when they descend on the Big Apple later this year.
