- Novak Djokovic (+150) is the favorite to capture his fourth-career US Open after falling in last year’s final to Daniil Medvedev (+275)

With the third Grand Slam of the tennis season set to hold serve at the All England Club later this month, here’s where you can find the latest 2022 Wimbledon Betting Odds.
However, today we wanted to take an early look at 2022 US Open Betting Odds following the US Tennis Association’s announcement that they will allow players from Russia and Belarus to compete under a neutral flag this August. Let’s check the latest odds for both the men and women set to take the court in Flushing Meadows.

Medvedev will defend his title
Daniil Medvedev (+275) will get the opportunity to defend his US Open title after the USTA decided to distance itself from Wimbledon and allow Russians and Belarusians to compete at Flushing Meadows. The 26-year-old is the first player other than Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Andy Murray and Djokovic to hold the No. 1 spot in 18 years.
Medvedev stunned Novak Djokovic (+150) in last year’s US Open finals, winning his first Grand Slam title with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 straight sets victory. The Russian’s triumph also ended the Serbian’s bid to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four majors in one season. The match was perhaps also the turning point in the race for the most major titles in history.
"I always say that I have to follow the rules," Daniil Medvedev told press at Halle. "And where I can play, I'm gonna play, I'm going to try to play my best."

Djojkovic has failed to win a Grand Slam since claiming his third-consecutive Wimbledon championship last year. The 35-year-old lost to Rafael Nadal (+800) in the quarter-finals of this year’s French Open and famously missed the Australian Open after refusing to vaccinate.
Additionally, a new report from the UK Telegraph suggests “there are no plans to relax American immigration rules that require incoming travellers to have undergone vaccination for Covid.” This would essentially rule out Djokovic from competing this August, and give Nadal a chance to further build his Grand Slam lead. While he’s dealing with a potentially career-ending foot injury, the 36-year-old Spaniard has 22 Grand Slam men’s singles titles (two more than Djokovic) after winning in Melbourne and Paris this year.
Women’s U.S. Open
Will Swiatek’s dominance continue?
Iga Swiatek (+250) has won her last 35 matches. A streak that includes six-consecutive tournament victories and her second French Open championship in three years. The world No. 1 recently pulled out of this week’s WTA event in Berlin. And it will be interesting to see how she fares in Wimbledon as grass is considered to be her weakest surface.
Nevertheless, the 21-year-old Polish star made it all the way to the semi-finals at the Australian Open, so the hard courts at Flushing Meadows should not pose a problem.

Other potential contenders under the late-summer lights in New York City are last year’s winner Emma Raducanu (+1800), two-time US Open champion Naomi Osaka (+600) and American teenager Coco Gauff (+1800), who made a surprise run to the finals at Roland Garros.
And what about Serena Williams at +2500? The 23-time Grand Slam champion recently announced her plans to compete at Wimbledon after a year-long hiatus from tennis. She has six career US Open titles, but none since 2014, so it’s difficult to see her making a Jimmy Connors-like run at the tournament just days before her 41st birthday.
