The US Open 2020 is one of the few opportunities for players to win a Grand Slam in a turbulent year. With the US Open and Roland Garros very close together on the new ATP Tour schedule, predicting an overall winner will be the hardest time. However, here are my predictions for the best players to bet on.
In my opinion, a first Grand Slam champion will be crowned at this US Open. Defending champion Rafael Nadal doesn’t seem too motivated to keep his title as he prefers to focus on Roland Garros, a tournament where he is the clear favorite. This leaves the door open for many experienced and young players to stay ahead. Novak Djokovic is the clear favorite. However, with this break in tennis and his close commitment against Thiem at the Australian Open 2020, I could see the younger generation beat him.
One player who strikes me as a promising overall winner is Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas has beaten all the Big 3 multiple times in the last year! Tsitsipas has the talent, confidence and mentality to win the US Open. I am sure that with this break, Tsitsipas has worked very hard to improve his game and he will return to the tour better than ever. It’s quoted at +1400, a very good bet.

Another player who may be able to win his first slam is Dominic Thiem. Thiem played incredibly well at the Australian Open in Melbourne and was so close to winning the final. Thiem has contested 3 Grand Slam finals and will certainly win one soon. Like Tsitsipas, Thiem is one of the few players who are able to consistently beat the Big 3. This will come in handy in a Grand Slam and could be a valuable option at +1000.
See who the experts picked to win this one
Stefanos Tsitsipas +1 400; Dominic Thiem +1000
