US Open 2020 Odds: ATP and WTA Early Favorites

August 31 will see the return of tennis Grand Slams as Flushing Meadows will host the 2020 US Open. As for favorites go, this is an unusual year where new favorites arise at the expense of unfortunate dropouts due to the pandemic concerns or bad-timed injuries.

Is the road open for Novak Djokovic to win his 18th Grand Slam title? Betmania has the best tennis betting odds for all tennis fans and a big welcome bonus if you sign up and make a deposit. Sports are coming back, and it's time to get all setup at the best sportsbook and casino, Betmania.

Under a different format, with safety bubbles of three people accompanying the players and stringent measures, where everything can change in a heartbeat, the US Open 2020 will be a Grand Slam like no other. 

Here at Betmania, we look at the early favorites for both the ATP and the WTA circuits!


ATP Favorites

Two perennial candidates won't participate in the tournament. Roger Federer is dealing with recovery from double knee surgery, and current champion Rafael Nadal announced he isn't playing due to Covid-19 concerns.

Nonetheless, many top-tier talents are participating, including six players in the top 10 of the ATP rankings. Without any further a due, here are our favorites to win the US Open.

Novak Djokovic:

World's no.1 in the rankings, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, and a three-time US Open championship, Djokovic is on a quest to be the best. With incredible baseline game, aggressive volleys, and a bit of flair and unpredictability, Djokovic's game is as complete as you'll ever find.

His defense is of high level and has fantastic cardio to last whatever time the match endures. Djokovic is always a favorite when he plays, and there's a reason why.

Daniil Medvedev:

Tall, good serve, powerful baseline shots, and an unorthodox style with little to no spin in his shots, Daniil Medvedev was close to winning the 2019 US Open, losing in the final to Nadal.

Medvedev is as safe as a tennis player can be, while still putting his opponents in dire situations. I like Medvedev for this tournament, his style translates well to the surface and can surprise a few in the way.

Dominic Thiem:

Thiem has four wins over Djokovic in 11 games. He is the player who has beaten him the most inside the US Open. Thus, and having into consideration he is the world's no. 3, you have to put Thiem as one of the favorites to win.

He has a deliberate but aggressive playing style that makes him one of the best long rally players in the Tour. If Thiem can find some consistency in his game, he can win his first Grand Slam.


WTA Favorites

The WTA will also have some dropouts, but many former Grand Slam winners are still attending the tournament. And here are the favorites:

Bianca Andreescu:

Current US Open champion, young Bianca Andreescu, has to be one of the favorites. Not only is she defending her crown, but she has a hazardous style that creates concerns for her opponents.

She has a magnificent shot selection, rarely hitting two consecutive shots the same way, making her opponents guess rather than read a pattern. Andreescu has an all-court ability that makes her a tough matchup.

Serena Williams:

If Serena is in a tournament, you have to look closely. An outrageous serve, incredible volleys, and sharp baseline shots, Serena is undeniably the best women's tennis player of all time.

With 23 Grand Slams to her name, six of them in the US Open, Williams wants to avenge her loss in the final last year against Andreescu, nothing more fearful than a vengeance-seeking Williams.

Simona Halep:

Winner of two Grand Slams, Halep is looking for her first title in Flushing Meadows, where her best result was a semi-final appearance in 2015. Halep, however, still represents one of the most talented women in the WTA.

Very aggressive from the baseline, Halep can also take a step back and defend with an incredible level, having the ability to cover the court flawlessly, reading well into her opponent's shots. If Halep finds a good rhythm, she can finally lift a Grand Slam in New York.
