US OPEN

The US Open Tennis Championships is the fourth and final Grand Slam tennis tournament played each year. Rich in history and storylines, the US Open is held at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City. (NOTE: the American spelling of center is used in the official title) Bettors can be assured that Betfair will again provide industry-best data and information, including US Open tips, to enhance their wagering experiences during what is often one of the tennis calendar’s most colourful and controversial events.

Originally known as the US National Championships, the tournament was first played in 1881, in Newport, Rhode Island, on grass courts. The event was played on clay courts for several years in the 1970s before a permanent move to hard courts in 1978 when its current home was opened. The two-week tournament is played in late summer, usually starting in the last week of August and ending in early September, often in stifling heat and humidity. On top of those challenging conditions, players must also deal with rowdy crowds who love getting involved in the action. It makes for an electric and unpredictable atmosphere that requires players to be at their absolute best to win.

Betfair offers US Open betting tips on matches across the main draw of the men’s and women’s tournament. Betfair engages industry experts who use scientific data to shape US Open tips and predictions. Following Betfair’s US Open tips will provide punters with a genuine advantage when they’re considering categories including head-to-head match odds, set betting, and set winners. Bettors who sign up to Betfair can also use Betfair’s high-quality, professional advice, including US Open tennis tips, to advantage on Australia’s largest betting exchange.

Like the other three Grand Slam tennis tournaments (the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon), the US Open features 128-player draws for both the men’s and women’s singles, the key events of the fortnight. And from 2022, the US Open will join the other three Slams in using the 10-point tiebreaker rule (first player to 10 points with a minimum advantage of two points) when players have each won six games in the deciding set of a match. Bettors keen to consider in-game betting should study Betfair’s US Open tips 2022, which will incorporate up-to-date data on how players perform in 10-point tiebreakers.

In recent years at the US Open, several youngsters or relative unknown players have blasted through to record impressive victories, some over more seasoned opponents, to mark their arrivals as genuine stars of the game. In 2018, Japan’s Naomi Osaka stunned six-time champion Serena Williams in a memorable and controversial encounter. In 2021, British teenager Emma Raducanu became the first singles qualifier in the open/professional era to win a Grand Slam event when she beat another teen, Canada’s Leylah Fernandez, in the women’s final. In 2020, Austrian Dominic Thiem won his maiden Grand Slam when he defeated German Alexander Zverev.

Osaka, Raducanu, Poland’s Iga Swiatek and Spain’s Paula Badosa are among the early favourites for the 2022 women’s singles, while in the men’s singles, Thiem, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Spanish pair Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are considered among the players to beat.

Stay on top of all aspects of the US Open from a betting perspective, including the likely winners of the women’s and men’s singles events, by studying Betfair’s range of detailed information including its US Open tips and predictions.
