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.
Earlier we looked at the men’s odds to win the 2022 US Open, now we are going to take a look at the women’s side of things and who the oddsmakers have pegged as the favourite. While all the talk will be about Serena Williams and this is her final US Open as she will retire after the event. Oh by the way Serena won her first career major at the 1999 US Open, we cannot forget about the rest of the tennis on the women’s side of things that is going on.
With Ashleigh Barty retiring after winning the Australian Open, the 21-year-old sensation and number one player in the world Iga Swiatek is favoured to lift the trophy at +380. However, as we have seen in recent history, it is a wide-open field. The last seven US Open champions have been first-time winners.

With first-round action set to begin on Monday, here is a look at the latest odds to win the 2022 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The US Open runs from August 29 through September 11.
US Open Odds (via Covers)
Swiatek is having a season to remember. She had a remarkable winning streak during the 2022 season. At one point, Swiatek won 37 matches in a row including her second French Open title. Since her third-round loss at Wimbledon, it has been a mixed bag for the World Number One. Her nerves got the best of her in Toronto and Cincinnati. Though Swiatek looks to continue to build on the results from her past US Open experience. Her best result came last year reaching the fourth round. She is a proven hard-court player winning the Sunshine Double (Indian Wells and Miami) earlier in the year. But playing in New York is much different, especially at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
With Swiatek being the heavy favourite to win the women’s tournament, lurking around are some past Grand Slam champions including Simona Halep. Halep has won two major titles already and has the ability to win in New York. She has been to the semifinals of this event in 2015 and after winning in Toronto and making a run to the semis at Wimbledon, her odds increased.
We can’t forget about the rest of the field either. Naomi Osaka, the two-time US Open champion always has a shot to win in New York. Despite having a tough season, she has the ability to take her game to the next level, especially in the majors. The defending women’s champion Emma Raducanu is coming in at +1900. She came out of nowhere last year to lift the trophy. While she has the talent to do it again, it will be tough.
The last American woman to win the US Open was Sloane Stephens. Before that, it was Serena Williams. Coco Gauff has the best odds at +1300. Gauff made the final of the 2022 French Open losing to Swiatek. The teenage sensation is only getting better. Outside of Gauff, Americans Madison Keys and Jessica Pegula are each +2600 to win the tournament. Then there is Ons Jabeur, also at +2600 to win. Jabeur is sneaky good and if there is a long shot to win it would be her.
2019 US Open Bianca Andreescu checks in at +2900. Andreescu is coming back after some injuries. Her results have been getting better. But she is in for a challenge at this year’s tournament.
It is a wide-open women’s field after Swiatek when the action begins Monday at the 2022 US Open. Sometimes the best odds are the ones with the longest odds.
