The 2022 US Open is upon us. Nothing beats the bright lights and the crowds of New York City. It is an experience like none of the other majors in tennis. Each is unique in its own way, but something is special about the US Open. With the North American hardcourt swing wrapping up, all eyes are on Flushing Meadows, New York for the year’s final major.
The odds are a lot different this year without Novak Djokovic permitted to play in the United States due to his vaccination status. We might not see the 21-time Grand Slam champion play another major until the French Open in May of 2023. With Djokovic not in New York, 2021 US Open Champion Daniil Medvedev is the favourite to win the tournament at +210. However, lurking in the weeds are some formidable foes that have some good odds to win the tournament.

US Open Odds (via Covers)
Medvedev always loves playing in New York. He had a breakthrough trip to the final in 2019 losing to Rafael Nadal in five sets. Medvedev loves playing in New York and is one of the best hard-court players on the tour. Since his trip to the final in 2019, Medvedev lost in the semis to Dominic Thiem in 2020 and beat Djokovic last year in the final to win in his first major. The Russian got his first win of the season in Los Cabos before losing in the Round of 32 in Montreal, and the quarterfinals in Cincinnati. Daniil knows how to handle the pressure as he looks to win the second major of his career.
You can’t count out the 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal. Nadal beat Medvedev in Australia to open the season. That was a bit of shock to everyone including Nadal. He backed it up by winning in Paris. But Nadal has been dealing with a foot issue and though he has won in New York before, this season it has been difficult for him to play. He had to withdraw from Wimbledon after beating Taylor Fritz. Nadal has not played much. His first match since Wimbledon was a loss to Borna Coric in the round of 32 in Cincinnati.
Carlos Alcaraz is having a season to remember. He has yet to break through when the pressure is really on. However, he has two Masters 1000 to his name winning in Miami and Madrid. Beating Nadal in Madrid. His game is remarkable for such a young player. Alcaraz can definitely break through to win a major. It could be this year.
Outside of these guys, the field is wide open. Marin Cilic the 2014 US Open champion has some pretty high odds to take home another title. The year he won, he served everyone off the court including Roger Federer. Stefanos Tsitsipas is looking to get back to a final after blowing a two-set lead to Djokovic at the French Open in 2021. He has the ability to get back there, but it is all mental for him.
Then there is Nick Kyrgios, who is having a season to remember. Lost in the final of Wimbledon, but continues to have great results. Can he finally break through? And of course let us not forget about Hubert Hurkacz, Borna Coric (Cincinnati Masters Winner) and Matteo Berrettini.
The field is wide open. There are always upsets in the first week of the tournament. Will an American male finally win a major? The last one to do so was Andy Roddick in 2003 at this event. Taylor Fritz has the game to do so. But there are so many good players that have the ability to make deep runs. All it takes is seven wins to be crowned champion at the 2022 US Open.
