US Open

The US Open 2023 singles champions were Coco Gauff (Women’s) and now four-time US Open title holder Novak Djokovic (Men’s). 

The US Open tennis tournament is the fourth and final Grand Slam held each year. It follows the Australian Open, French Open and the prestigious Wimbledon Championships, which remains the sole tennis Grand Slam major played on grass courts.

In 2020 the US Open was the second Grand Slam tournament following the Australian Open with the French Open (moved until September 27 – October 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic), with Wimbledon 2020 cancelled.

The second oldest of the Grand Slams after the time-honoured Wimbledon, the US Open is played on outdoor, acrylic (DecoTurf) hard courts in New York City at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre.

The predecessor to the United States Open Tennis Championships, the Open Era dating back to 1968, was the U.S. Men’s Singles National Championship founded back in 1881 and held on Rhode Island. The first of the Women’s Singles tournaments ran a few years later at Philadelphia in 1887. Over AU$42 million in prize money is on offer to the US Open winners who take to the courts over two weeks from the last Monday of August into September annually.

US Open Open Odds & Betting

US Open betting is the last chance punters for tennis fans to back of a winner of a Grand Slam, so the markets are always highly-competitive. Because US Open matches go into tie-breakers, there are plenty of nail-biting moments across the fortnight of play and the US Open odds for head-to-head betting can be tight as well. There has never been a fifth set tie-break since it was instituted in 1975 however, so tipping this result can be dangerous for punters!

Along with outright US Open Winners odds per match there are a host of other tennis betting markets open every year. Fans can predict and put money on exact set results, correct scores for the first set, whether there will be a tie-break in the first set, which player will win the first set, whether there will be odds/even total games for the match and who will break the first serve.

The 2023 US Open runs from late August and all-in betting markets on the Men’s Singles and Women’s Singles are open now!
