Tennis Betting – US Open betting odds and winner pick

The US open starts tonight as the world’s finest tennis players gather in New York for the final gram slam tournament of the pro season. We have looked closer at the men’s tournament and found the best betting tips on who will take home one of the most prestigious titles in tennis. Read below as we preview the contenders and give the betting odds for the winner of the US Open. All Prices are available now and are provided by Ladbrokes Sports.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer is currently the bookie for the tournament. He has won the US open on five previous occasions and is going into the tournament following his title in Cincinnati last week. Furthermore he lost the final last year and will be eager to make amends and win the trophy this year around. The hard court also favours his playing style and Federer should go into the tournament well rested after a month off following Wimbledon. A much needed break after his disappointing quarter-final exit in London, which seem to have done him well in both Toronto and Cincinnati.

Roger Federer can be backed at odds 3.25 at Ladbrokes Sport

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has struggled to show any form in the last few months, getting knocked out in the Semi Finals in Toronto and the Quarterfinals in Cincinnati. He doesn’t have a great record in the competition and has never reached a final in the US open. Despite this he should never be underestimated, as he seeks to be the youngest ever player to complete a grand slam. However currently hard court is by far his weakest surface and we do not give him many chances to win this year in New York.

Rafael Nadal can be backed at odds 3.75 at Ladbrokes Sport.

Andy Murray

Andy Murray is in great form, shining in Toronto, where he took home the trophy by beating both Nadal and Federer. He also seems to have been doing well with no coach and is looking more relaxed on the court. Currently he stands to play Nadal in an exciting semi final, if they both get through and will be confident after recently beating him in straight sets.

Andy Murray can be backed at odds 4 at Ladbrokes Sport.

Other possible contenders

Other contenders are Novak Djokovic at odds 13, and Andy Roddick at odds 17, one of which could play Federer in an eventual semi-final, if seedlings’ hold. It is tough to see which one of the two will get to the semi final, as Andy Roddick has won in the last four matches against Djokovic, and on the other hand Roddick’s form has been very inconsistent lately. However playing at home Roddick could be an outsider for title, but needs to be at his best, if he is to through both Federer and Djokovic.

Among the outsiders for title you also find Swedish Robin Söderling at odds 17 to win the tournament, while Wimbledon semi finalist Tomas Berdych is at odds 17 and Argentinean David Nalbandian, who has won eleven of the last 13 games played, is at odds 21.

Also worth mentioning is Cypriot Marcos Baghdadis, who can be backed at odds 41. Baghdadis has been performing well lately beating Nadal and reaching the final in Washington. Russian Nikolay Davydenko is also at odds 41 in the unlikely event that he will win the tournament after swinging performances lately.

Betting tip for the US Open

Our winner pick for the US Open will be Andy Murray at odds 4 at Ladbrokes Sports.

Although loosing his quarter-final to Cincinnati surprise Mardy Fish, he comes into the tournament with a fresh win from Toronto. In this tournament he showed he is among the best in world by beating Nadal (Ranking 1) and Federer (Ranking 3) to the title and could do it again in New York with his current form.

Players looking for a more safe bet could combine Murray and Federer by betting on both to win, which would be a recommendable bet considering the tournament draw.
