The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?


The US Open is underway and the world’s best are battling for their share of $57 million and one of the most prestigious trophies in the sport of tennis.


The top betting sites in New Jersey are receiving a deluge of bets, with players predicting who will make it to the final and come within one match of glory. With that in mind, let’s look at the likely contenders.


US Open Finalists


The 2019 US Open has already had its fair share of shocks and surprises. Novak Djokovic was one of the tournament’s favorites, as he so often is, but he fell to a dazzling performance from Stan Wawrinka. The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third.


Wawrinka beat Djokovic on US Open soil in the 2016 final, so he’ll be hoping that this victory against the 2018 champion will lead to the same success.


His compatriot, Roger Federer, is a bigger favorite with the bookmakers. He won 6-2, 6-2 and 6-0 in his Round of 16 match. Federer also has the most US Open titles after winning 5 straight finals from 2004 to 2009.


2017 champion, Rafael Nadal, is a short price as well and is predicted to go all the way.


As for the female game, it’s all about Serena Williams. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers. Williams is a true sporting superstar, with 6 titles to her name already. However, she’ll be keeping a close eye on Naomi Osaka. The Japanese player beat her to the title in 2018 and she’s still in the 2019 competition.


The Finalists


A final between Nadal and Federer would be a dream for bookmakers and fans alike, and as they’re in different halves of the draw, it’s a very real possibility. But there are some big names left and a lot of work to be done.


It’s less of an issue for Serena Williams, even if she does run into Osaka. The onus is on her to perform and to collect. She knows she can beat all the remaining players if she plays to her best and that’s what is expected of her.
