Unsurprisingly, the market expects one of these two standouts to top the field. Without removing the vig, these numbers say there’s about an 80% chance one of Alcaraz or Djokovic will hoist.
Expected to be the top two seeds, they appear on a collision course for the final. Only the seeding draw for the French Open likely prevented two straight finals meetings. There, the two met in the semifinal, with Djokovic prevailing easily in an injury-marred match.
Favored over the field at Wimbledon, the Serbian legend fell victim to an upset in the final. Alcaraz rallied to win after being dominated in the first set.
Djokovic won their first and only hard court meeting at the U.S. Open’s lead-in, ATP Masters Cincinnati, just days ago. However, the result was hardly conclusive. Djokovic squeaked out two consecutive tiebreaks to win the final two sets after a 5-7 first.
A potential finals meeting between these two figures to be a closely lined affair, especially with the underdog winning the past two Grand Slam meetings.

…Or Someone Else?
Can anyone else crash the party?
Only two other players have shorter than 30-1 odds, as crazy as that sounds for a Grand Slam event.
Likely third seed Daniil Medvedev top the remainder of the field. He won in 2021, surprisingly defeating Djokovic in straight sets in the final as a sizable underdog. He has been notably stronger on hard court in his career compared to other surfaces and has advanced to three other such Grand Slam finals in addition to his win.
The market also has a modicum of optimism for Jannik Sinner. He’s coming off his strongest Grand Slam run, making the Wimbledon semifinal (lost to Djokovic in straight sets). He has not shown the same hard court prowess as Medvedev, however.
Danish phenom Holger Rune also bears mentioning as a longer shot. According to the ATP’s official 52-week stats, he ranks fifth on hard court. And he enters in pretty solid form, having advanced to the quarterfinals in the past two Grand Slam events.
Keep an eye on the upcoming draw (Aug. 24) and expect some movement then in U.S. Open tennis odds.
