The US Open 2020 is all set to commence at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center as the ATP Tour continues to progress. Currently, the world’s No.1 tennis player – Novak Djokovic will lead the field as the draw for the 2020 edition will take place on Thursday. The 3 time Champion has his eyes on a second Grand Slam title of the season, after winning the Australian Open.
The competition bears some resemblance to its predecessors and the first tournament which started in 1881. Over the years, evolution has taken the game from an exclusive men’s singles and doubles tournament to a two-week sports and entertainment extravaganza at Flushing Meadows.
The 140th edition of the hard-court tournament will surely be missing the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – the defending champion. Every year more than 700,000 fans enter the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center to witness the tournament, but the 2020 edition will be played without fans on site due to COVID-19.

Betting Odds – Outright
According to bet365.com, the odds for the players to win the US Open 2020 are:
Novak Djokovic – 2.00
Stefanos Tsitsipas – 4.33
Daniil Medvedev – 6.00
Milos Raonic – 7.50
Roberto Bautista-Agut – 15.00
Reilly Opelka – 26.00
Filip Krajinovic – 26.00
Jan-Lennard Struff – 34.00
As expected, the Serb is the odds on favorite to win the US Open 2020 and that prediction is highly boosted by the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka. Roger Federer has stayed out due to a knee injury and therefore Novak Djokovic is the only heavyweight that the young talents have to endure on their path to a maiden Grand Slam title.
And the world’s No.1 tennis player is in phenomenal form this year after winning his 8th Australian Open title. A genius in the court is undefeated with a 19-0 record, a 3 time winner of the US Open and with his mark earlier, he really has a point to prove here.
One man who does look well set for a strong US Open is Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas, who was having a decent 2020 before the season got shut down. Milos Raonic was quietly building a head of steam this year after an injury-plagued 2019, but has come out the other side looking none the worse for wear.
Also this tournament could be the opportune moment for the likes of Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev to shake off and capture their first Grand Slam titles of their career.
