On August 25 the time has come! The last Grand-Slam-Tournament of this year, the US OPEN 2014 is starting in The Big Apple. Since 1881 and 1887, male and female players compete in an open tournament in Flushing Meadows, New York. This year, the endowment of the most important hard-court tournament worldwide amounts to 38,251 Million US-Dollar. However, unfortunately there already have been some hurtful cancellations, so Rafael Nadal, the 28-year old last year’s winner from Spain, cancelled his participation in the tournament in the US-metropolis due to a wrist injury. The 14-times major-winner, who has not played any match since Wimbledon 2014, had already cancelled all of his appearances on the ATP-Tour. Nevertheless, the Grand-Slam-Tournament still offers a lot and the odds for the US Open 2014 at Rivalo will make the hearts of any tennis fan leap for joy.
In the men’s category, the “Djoker” Novak Djokovic from Serbia, Roger Federer, who is in peak form at the moment and the Scotsman Andy Murray are the hot candidates to win this year’s title in the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens. The bookmakers at Rivalo seem to agree and set an odd of 2.20 for the number 1 player of the world, Novak Djokovic, followed by Roger Federer, who offers an odd of 3.80 and last year’s finalist Andy Murray with an already remarkable odd of 5.00. The tournament is expected to be more exciting than it had been for a long time. This is due to the fact that apart from the just mentioned players, various others, including Stan Wawrinka with an odd of 15.0, Grigor Dimitrov, who offers an odd of 17.0, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with an top odd of 20.0, are also eager to win this year’s title of the US Open 2014.
As one’s condition on a particular day is very important in tennis, especially in the course of one of the four Grand-Slam tournaments, outsiders could be the potential winner as well. The bookmakers of Rivalo came up with something for this event as well. So, it is possible that players like Milos Raonic, with an odd of 25.0, or David Ferrer, whose win offers an odd of 60.0, will cause a surprise.
Based on the odds of the Women’s US Open 2014, it is to be expected that the women’s category will be as spectacular as the men’s category. Here the bookmakers at Rivalo see defending champion Serena Williams, whose win offers an odd of 2.30, ahead in the run for the title of the tournament in New York. Serena Williams is followed by the Russian Tennisbeauty Maria Sharapova, who is one of the most successful players of the WTA-Tour and whose victory offers a top odd of 6.50, and the 22-year old Rumanian and 2014 French-Open-finalist Simona Halep with a remarkable odd of 8.00. Not to forget the Canadian high flyer Eugenie Bouchard, who offers an odd of 12.0, or the German-hope Angelique Kerber, who starts into the chase for the championship with an odd of 40.0.
After three Grand Slams, various Challengers and more than one ATP/WTA tournaments, one question remains: Who has enough strength in order to withstand the upcoming two energy-sapping weeks and win the title of the US Open 2014? Who succeeds Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams as the winner of the US Open 2014?
