US Open 2016 Tennis Predictions

US Open 2016 Tennis Predictions

The 2016 US Open tennis tournament is its 136th edition, but who is going to walk away with the men and womens titles?

Men’s Singles Tournament

Bookmakers around the world have Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray installed as favorites to win the men’s singles 2016 US Open title, and rightly so as they are the best players in the world at the moment, but there are a couple of who could seriously challenge for honors.

Novak Djokovic: +100 to win the 2016 US Open

Djokovic

Whoever finishes above Novak Djokovic when the final serve is made is likely to have won the 2016 US Open. With $102,813,310 in career winnings, including almost $9.3 million won in 2016 alone, Djokovic does not need the money from the sport. He simply loves winning and is extremely good at it.

After a disappointing Wimbledon, Djokovic won the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Canada, then lost in the Round of 32 of the Olympics to Juan Martin del Potro. 

Djokovic has won four of his seven titles in 2016 on Hard courts, and will be the one to beat in this tournament.

Pick: Take Djokovic To Win (+100)

Andy Murray: +200 to win the 2016 US Open

Murray

Buoyed by his Wimbledon title and his gold medal at Rio 2016, Andy Murray goes into the 2016 US Open as the second-favorite. Murray also reached the final of the Western & Southern open in Cincinnati earlier this month, losing to Marin Cilic on a hard court 4-6 5-7.

Murray has reached the finals of his last seven major tennis tournaments, and is a solid bet to make it eight from eight in this event unless the draw pits him against Djokovic in an earlier round.

Stanislas Wawrinka: +2000 to win the 2016 US Open

Wawrinka

Ranked third in the world, 31-year-old Swiss Stan Wawrinka is a good outside bet for glory at the 2016 US Open. Five of Wawrinka’s seven titles since 2015 have come from play on a hard court so conditions in the US Open should suit him.

Wawrinka tends to be eliminated in the early rounds, or goes very deep, so if you see Wawrinka progress pass the Round of 32, keep an eye on his betting odds as they may drop dramatically.

Women’s Singles Tournament

Serena Williams: +125 to win the 2016 US Open

Williams

Serena Williams continues to defy the years and dominate the women’s tennis scene. Williams is most definitely the won to stop in the US Open.

Last year, Williams lost to Roberta Vinci in the semi-finals of the US open and will be looking to make amends. 

During 2016 to date, Williams has won on clay in Rome, won on grass at Wimbledon, and lost finals on clay at the French Open, and on hard courts at Indian Wells and the Australian Open.

Angelique Kerber: +1000 to win the 2016 US Open

Kerber

Germany’s Angelique Kerber is a legitimate challenger for the US Open title and is in good form, too.

Kerber was the losing finalist at Wimbledon, reached the semi-final in Montreal, lost in the final of the Rio Olympics, and was a losing finalist in Cincinnati. Yes, they were losses, but something has to give eventually and allow Kerber to grab a trophy. Will it happen in the US Open?

Agnieszka Radwanska: +3300 to win the 2016 US Open

Radwanska

Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska started 2016 in strong form, winning in Shenzhen, reaching consecutive semi-finals in the Australian open, Doha, and Indian Wells, but has since faded somewhat.

Currently ranked fourth in the world, Radwanska has the ability to cause a major upset at the US Open, and if she manages to avoid the likes of Williams and Kerber until the latter stages of the tournament, she could have a real chance of adding to her 18 WTA singles titles.
