US Open Tennis Betting Preview 2015

We live in an age where giants stride the tennis game.

Federer, Djokovic; Nadal and Murray are a quartet of players fit to grace any era of the sport. That they are all competing against each other in the same relative time frame is a spectacle for tennis fans. This event could well be the sun setting on that golden era though so make the most of it.

In 2013 I Picked Murray to beat Djokovic in the final on a whim. There will be no repeat of that betting spur of the moment this year though. It's a cold calculating world out there and we need to keep an edge to keep moving forward.

Rafael Nadal - 20/1

Of the four contenders for this years US Open Nadal is perhaps the weakest player. Injuries have taken their toll and although he is fighting his way back to full fitness he still hasn't reached anywhere near the height of his phenomenal powers. The warrior is raging against the fading light.

Part of the reason for this is his all action style which takes a huge physical toll on the body. I don't think he can keep that up without tempering some of his shot making and reigning it in a bit. Only three of his 14 Grand Slam wins have come on the hard courts and I won't be betting on him adding to that here. It would be a major surprise if Nadal made the final.

Andy Murray 7/2

The dour Scot keeps improving his game and keeps on coming up against another inspired player. He was schooled at Wimbledon by Federer and had no answer to the Swiss Master in the semi final of the Cincinnati ATP tour.

There are two problems that Murray has to sort out before he can be a consistent winner and take his place among the immortals of the game.

The first is his second serve which needs to be upped by 10 mph. Without that he is always struggling when not making his first serves. Witness Roger Federer taking his second service game to the cleaners in their last match.

The second and arguably easier flaw to remedy is his reticence to come to the net and force the issue. Until he can take it to the opposition he will always have a deficit in his game plan.

Murray is an excellent volleyer so it is a mystery why this has remained part of his game that has not been improved upon. Until he rectifies that he will struggle to beat the top two players.

Novak Djokovic 11/10

The favourite for the tournament, Djokovic is gunning for his third major in 2015.

Off the pace and seemingly under par in the last two tournaments Djokovic will benefit from a good weeks rest before this one starts. He has a good draw, being seeded first and the five set format means that he can always work an opponent out before the games run out.

Roger Federer 4/1

Djokovic may be the favorite but Federer is playing tennis from the Gods. His recent addition to the toolbox of standing close to the return of serve line is something of beauty and requires hand/eye coordination that mere mortals just don't have.

After a spell where it appeared that his powers were on the wane he has begun to add new technique to make up for any discernible blemish in his game.

His age is the only factor and at 34 his number is going to be called soon but for me Federer is playing the best ever tennis of his career.

If he can win through easily in the early rounds, and he could and should then he will have the gas left in the tank to defeat Djokovic in the final.
