Top Choice to Win the 2022 US Open Men’s Single Tournament

Wimbledon prevented Russian players from participating, which is why Daniil Medvedev had to sit out the last major. No doubt, the ATP’s number one player has something prove. The defending U.S. Open champ lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Western & Southern Open semifinals in his last.

Medvedev should be gearing up for a serious run. He’ll want to grab a major title this year and he’ll be fresh enough to get it done. Give Medvedev a big chance to make it back-to-back U.S. Open titles.

Top Second Choice to Win the 2022 US Open Men’s Single Tournament

The opening odds chalk hasn’t played since beating Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon Finals. Djoker doesn’t require a warm-up tournament to get it going. Novak has won the U.S. Open three times. For any other player that would be a lot. Not for Djokovic. Flushing Meadows is the least amount of major wins after the French Open. So although Djoker should be tough to beat, he’s not the best play.

Top Underdog Choice to Win the 2022 US Open Men’s Single Tournament

Zverev appeared on his way to at least challenging Rafael Nadal at the French Open semifinals before suffering an injury that required him to retire.

Alexander hasn’t played since. He didn’t try to step onto Wimbledon’s grass courts and he didn’t play in the Western & Southern Open. But although Zverev hasn’t played since Roland-Garros, it doesn’t mean he has no shot.

Among the underdogs, Zverev warrants the longest look. His odds should drift past 14-to-1. So give it a couple of days if you agree before backing the 6’ 6” German.
