Novak Djokovic -125

The world No. 1 is getting closer to Federer and Nadal on the all-time list of most Grand Slam winners. The Serbian believes the Grand Slam debate will never end, despite the absence of Fed and Nad.
“l think the debate about who is the best of all time will never be interrupted,” Djokovic said following his Round of 32 win at the Western and Southern Open.

Daniil Medvedev +550
Top USA sportsbooks online may have a better opinion of Medvedev than he himself does. Medvedev has talked about his prep and how the absence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal can change the outlook of the players. With just three Grand Slam winners in the draw, the trophy will be up for grabs. “Yeah, of course, there is a, first of all, big opportunity for a new Grand Slam winner, because there is, let’s say, only three Grand Slam winners in the draw of US Open, Cilic, Murray, and Novak, if I’m not mistaken, which of course gives bigger chance for everybody else,” Medvedev said.
The Russian is not taking anything for granted, though. He is down to earth and just wants to be competitive. Every player will take a close look at the Cincinnati performances to assess their preparations. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see a few unexpected match results. “Talking about myself, I always take it match by match, so at this moment I don’t see myself lifting the US Open trophy. I just want to see first where my game is at tournament level, competitive level in Cincinnati because as I say, we’re going to almost 100% see some unbelievable results, maybe some really bad games or some really good ones,” he said.
Stefanos Tsitsipas +600
This will be the first grand slam in 21 years without Nadal or Federer. Tsitsipas sees a good opportunity there. “The chances are definitely going up, with the absence of Federer and Nadal from the US Open. It is definitely a better opportunity to play better, to feel that not all the attention is on them. I am also given the opportunity to be in a better position in the leaderboard ranking,” the Greek said.
Dominic Thiem +500
Thiem has implied the upcoming US Open will be “worth much less” because of the number of elite players skipping the tournament as a result of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
