2022 has been a great year for tennis thus far, with Wimbledon providing some stellar moments back in June/July during this year’s competition. Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina were the two that emerged victorious in the singles events – but who will be lifting the trophy at the end of the 2022 US Open?
All eyes will be on last year’s victor for the ladies, Emma Raducanu after she shocked the tennis world and beat Leylah Fernandez in last year’s final at just 18 years of age. Last year’s victor for the men’s was Daniil Medvedev after he defeated the world number one, Novak Djokovic.
But this begs the question, who are the favourites for this year’s US Open 2022? Find out everything you need to know below.
Here are the current bookie’s odds for the outright winner of the men’s side of the tournament.
- Novak Djokovic: 11/8
