While the other three majors have been dominated by the big three of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer, the US Open has been more accessible to others. Since the tournament is the last major of the season, durability is a major factor, and that has opened the door to players like Marin Cilic and Stan Wawrinka winning the event and Kevin Anderson and Kei Nishikori making the final.
The 2019 US Open will take place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York. This tournament will run for the next two weeks, and matches will be on the ESPN family of networks.

Novak Djokovic is close to even money to win the US Open, and he has had more success at Flushing Meadows than any other player this decade. He has won three US Open titles and made it to seven of the last nine finals, and he is the reigning champion.
He has been the No. 1 ranked player on the tour for all of 2019, and he has already won two majors this season. Djokovic claimed the Australian Open and Wimbledon, but he wasn’t able to win the Western & Southern Open in his tune-up for this tournament. Daniil Medvedev went on to beat him in the semifinals on his way to the tournament title.
Rafael Nadal won the other major this season, claiming another French Open and continuing his clay court dominance. Nadal has been plagued by injuries over the last few seasons, but he is relatively healthy going into the US Open. He beat Medvedev 6-3, 6-0 to win the Canadian Open two weeks ago, and he will rest for two weeks prior to this event. The wear and tear of two weeks of hard-court play has been tough on Nadal’s knees in the past, so keep that in mind when considering a futures bet on him.
Roger Federer is tennis royalty, but his best tennis is behind him at this point. He hasn’t won a US Open title since 2008, and he just can’t upend Djokovic on the hard-court. Federer lost an agonizing Wimbledon final to Djokovic last month, but he hasn’t performed well on the harder surfaces this season. The most decorated man in tennis history lost in the fourth round to Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Australian Open, and he fell in straight sets to Andrey Rublev in the Round of 16 at the Cincinnati Masters two weeks ago.
Medvedev’s strong play in recent weeks has established him as the player to beat outside of the legends. He has yet to make it past the fourth round of any major, but he is playing the best tennis of his young career.
There has been a surge of action on the mercurial Nick Kyrgios, dropping his odds from 33-1 to 21-1. Kyrgios might be the most talented young player on the tour, but his antics have overshadowed a promising career. He claimed the Washington Open last month, but it’s hard to place a wager on him because you never know when he might self-destruct.
The longshot that I like is Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas has tailed off after a strong start to the year and he made early exits at the Canadian Open and the Cincinnati Masters, but the talent is there. He has a tough draw as the eighth seed, but at 35-1, he is worth a flyer.
