US Open 2022 Tennis: Who are the favourites?

Emma Radacanu and Novak Djokovic

The US Open 2022 Tennis is upon us! But who are the favourite for this year’s competition?

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
  • Daniil Medvedev: 9/4
  • Carlos Alcaraz: 4/1
  • Rafael Nadal: 5/1
  • Nick Kyrgios: 6/1
  • Jannik Sinner: 11/1
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas: 12/1
  • Alexander Zverev: 14/1
  • Felix Auger-Aliassime: 16/1
  • Matteo Berrettini: 20/1

So these are the top 10 favourites for the men’s side of the US Open 2022.

Novak Djokovic is unsurprisingly the bookie’s favourite, he’ll be looking for redemption after last year’s final defeat. The current champion Daniil Medvedev sits as the second favourite at 9/4 and will be raring to retain his title.

Other notable names that don’t necessarily make the list are Andy Murray and Roger Federer – who the bookies both have at 50/1 for the outright win.

Here are the current bookie’s odds for the outright winner of the women’s side of the tournament.

  • Iga Swiatek: 9/4
  • Naomi Osaka: 6/1
  • Simona Halep: 9/1
  • Cori Gauff: 11/1
  • Ons Jabeur: 14/1
  • Elena Rybakina: 16/1
  • Aryna Sabalenka: 16/1
  • Paula Badosa: 16/1
  • Bianca Andreescu: 18/1

These are the top 10 favourites for the women’s side of the US Open 2022.

The 21-year-old from Poland Iga Swiatek is undeniably the bookie’s favourite for this tournament at 9/4 – her closest rival is Naomi Osaka who is much less favoured at 6/1.

Other notable names that don’t make the list are actually last year’s two finalists – Emma Radacanu and Leylah Fernandez who both sit at 25/1 prior to the tournament.
