Top 2023 US Open Women’s Singles Tournament Favorites

By Jeff Stinger

Like in the three other Grand Slam events earlier this year, the top two female tennis players in the world, Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka, respectively, have been pegged as frontrunners to win this year’s edition of the US Open. But as we’ve seen in recent Grand Slam affairs, neither of the two is a surefire lock to win these tournaments. Who joins Swiatek and Sabalenka as odds-on favorites to secure a victory in Flushing Meadows this September?

Nitrobetting is ready to volley the latest tennis news, odds, and updates all year round. This time, let’s look at the top five favorites to win the 2023 US Open women’s singles tournament and their respective odds of winning the annual Grand Slam event in the heart of Queens.

Top 5 Favorites to Win the US Open Women’s Singles Tournament

Iga Swiatek

Despite the relatively underwhelming quarterfinal showing at Wimbledon, World No. 1 Iga Swiatek remains the overall favorite to recapture Grand Slam victory. After all, the Polish powerhouse did just win it all in Roland Garros earlier this year and is defending her US Open crown after a phenomenal performance in Flushing Meadows last year. With a 52-9 record for the year thus far and a 68-14 lifetime record in Grand Slam tourneys (both tops amongst all active players), Swiatek will indeed have plenty of backers to repeat as the US Open Women’s Singles Tournament champion.

Aryna Sabalenka

In much better form at Grand Slam tourneys this season is World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka, who finally secured her maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year. The 25-year-old from Minsk has been a perennial threat on the biggest stages, reaching at least the semifinal round in six of her last eight Grand Slam appearances, including back-to-back semis showings in Flushing Meadows to date. Sabalenka is 24-5 on the hard courts this year and this, along with her win at Melbourne, makes her a true favorite to emerge victorious in another hard-court Grand Slam event in a few weeks.

Elena Rybakina

After winning Wimbledon last year, Kazakhstan’s top tennis superstar Elena Rybakina has been more than able to sustain her success on the WTA Tour. The 25-year-old World No. 3 finished as the finalist to Sabalenka in Melbourne earlier this year for her second-career Grand Slam final and redeemed her shortcoming there nicely by picking up wins at Indian Wells and Rome shortly after. With a dazzling 35-4 record in Grand Slam events and WTA 1000 tournaments combined this season, Rybakina is another strong co-favorite to rid of her status as a one-hit wonder in Grand Slams this September.

Coco Gauff

Coming in hot into the Big Apple is one of America’s best female tennis players Cori “Coco” Gauff, who is hot off her first-ever WTA 1000 singles tournament win in Cincinnati this month. Although the divide in Grand Slam resumés between the 19-year-old Floridian and the top three players featured earlier is rather wide, Gauff does have one Grand Slam final and a pair of other quarterfinal appearances up her sleeve. In terms of players with the most momentum entering the US Open, though, Gauff has it in spades as she aims to win back-to-back events stateside.

Jessica Pegula

As the current World No. 3 among female tennis players, late-bloomer Jessica Pegula isn’t being given much credit for her relative success on the courts. Like Gauff, the 29-year-old veteran can put some of those doubts to rest as she emerged as she also picked up her first career WTA 1000 victory at the Canadian Open; the first hard-court tune-up tournament for the US Open before last week’s event in Cincy. Pegula has yet to crack a Grand Slam semi but does have six quarterfinal appearances since her breakout 2021 campaign (including last year’s US Open) to give her borderline-favorite odds entering her home state of New York.
