Vegas Odds On 2015 Tennis US Open
Previously known as the United States Open Tennis Championships, the US Open Championships for tennis is the last of the four major professional tennis tournaments that make up the Grand Slam. The Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon are all played before the modern version of one of the most ancient tennis championships played anywhere in the world, the US National Championship. That contest decided the national men's single tennis champion, and was first played in 1881.
Today, the US Open Championships is usually held in August and September over the two-week time period before and after Labor Day weekend. While the US National Championship decided only the men's singles champion, the modern-day US Open honors the winners in men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. The tournament has been held annually since 1978 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows, New York.
About Tennis US Open Championship
Though mixed doubles, men's doubles and women's doubles are all offered, the betting focus every year during the U.S. Open is most heavily concentrated on the men's and women's singles matchups. The Las Vegas odds on U.S. Open singles contenders provide some of the best opportunities to catch a streaking underrated player who is going up against a struggling or injured favorite. A great example came earlier this year in the French Open, where in the first few days of competition, perennial champion Serena Williams was eliminated. The Women's Tennis Association had Serena ranked #5 in the world, and she was beaten by #111 ranked Virginie Razzano. Even a small bet on the underdog Razzano paid huge dividends.
Of course, on the opposite side of the argument are players like Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, who appear virtually unbeatable when they are on a roll. In the 2011 US Open Championships, Samantha Stosur shocked Serena Williams 6-2, 6-3 to take home the ladies singles title, and Novak Djokovic needed the maximum number of sets to defeat Nadal, 6-2, 6-4, 6-7(3-7), 6-1. Stosur is currently ranked #6 in the world, and would love to post back-to-back championships to add to her first ever Grand Slam title. The win marked the first US Open for Djokovic, and the remarkable 3rd Grand Slam title for him in 2011, making him only the sixth male player to ever record 3 Grand Slam championships in a single year in the open era.
Djokovic added the Australian Open Grand Slam championship this year and will definitely have something to say about who takes home the men's singles title this August 27 through September 9. The Association of Tennis Professionals currently has him ranked #1 in the world, with Nadal and Federer #2 and #3 respectively. Andy Murray, David Ferrer and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are all playing extremely well right now, and will probably be high up on the list of Las Vegas odds on favorites to win the U.S. Open this year. On the women's side, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharipova are currently #1 and #2 in the world WTA rankings, but another Stosur/Williams matchup could happen, and would certainly be worth watching.
