Federer lags behind big rivals in US Open betting

"For a long period I think I was not losing much, and when I came to the Open, I had all the answers for all the guys, all my opponents, all conditions, wind, you know, night, day", he said.

"This is the situation where the No.1 ranking is going to be at stake".

Roger Federer heads to the US Open as third favourite behind longtime rivals Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal after a season that has nose-dived since he won the Australian Open at the start of the year.

Sloane Stephens will be defending her title at the U.S. Open but all eyes will be on Serena Williams over the coming two weeks as the six-times champion attempts to win her first Grand Slam title since becoming a mother.

He noted that his 5 titles on the trot came during a remarkable stretch of dominance on the men's tour, which helped carry him through all the demanding conditions the US Open offers - with night sessions, noisy crowds and the hectic pace of life in NY reflected in the tournament. "That's been really surprising for me".

Serena shares her little girl, who turns one during the tournament on September 2, with her Reddit co-founder husband Alexis Ohanian, 35. "They still need the win of a slam, the win of a Masters 1000, whatever you want to call it, they still need to make that step, but they're definitely knocking on that door and there is some exciting talent around", Federer said.

Meanwhile, the list of favourites on the men's side is shorter.

Vettel Believes ‘Speed’ Will Make Difference For Ferrari on Sunday At Spa
But the German driver believes that on Sunday Ferrari will have good race pace and is optimisticabout the team's chances. However, the Finnish driver will start in sixth on the grid after getting out of his auto in the pit lane.

"I have faith in her ability and I have faith in how mentally tough she's gotten", Evert said.

"But because he won Cincinnati, I could have also played Novak in the fourth round if he wouldn't have made a move in the rankings".

It's hard to make that case outside of top three that someone legitimately has a shot to win this whole thing.
It was only June when, struggling to recover from a right elbow injury and getting upset in the quarter-finals of the French Open, an exasperated Djokovic mused that he might skip the grass-court season altogether.

"I feel like everything is just different in terms of I'm living a different life, I'm playing the US Open as a mom", Serena said.

Federer would know; it was the Swiss whom Djokovic defeated in Cincinnati.

Roger Federer returns against Novak Djokovic during the finals in the Western and Southern tennis open at Lindner Family Tennis Center. There's a possibility they could play in the quarter-finals in NY in what would be their first grand slam meeting since the Australian Open in 2016. "Now we have a chance to get spoiled again", Patrick McEnroe said.

"It is very hard and, even more than the physical part, the emotional part is the toughest one to try and figure out for Serena to be successful and to get back to being number one".
