All bets, all odds - the US Open !
US Open Tennis
The US Open tennis tournament is a Grand Slam tournament staged in the United States. It began life as the US National Championships and became the US Open in the 1960s, welcoming professional and amateur players from all over the world and giving them a chance to win their share of one of the sport’s biggest prize pools. There is over $50 million in the pot for the US Open, with the largest share of this being reserved for the singles event. In fact, the semi-finalists in the singles events earn more than the winner of the men’s or women’s doubles event, while those who make it to the third round in the singles events will earn more than the winners of the mixed doubles trophy. US Open tennis follows a knockout format and while it began as a grass tournament and moved to a clay tournament for a couple of years, it has been staged on hardcourt since the late 1970s. These courts tend to play very quickly when compared to grass events like Wimbledon, as the grass helps to absorb some of the impacts, but they are considered to be one of the most neutral surfaces and are good for most playing styles. No wonder the US Open is the is the most awaited event of the year and thousands of live-betting fans are waiting for the show.
US Open Tennis Players
The US Open tennis tournament was dominated by American players for the first few decades, with William Larned, Bill Tilden, and Bill Johnston being some of the most decorated. UK players have made their mark on this tournament though, with Fred Perry winning it in 1933, 1934 and 1936, while Betty Nuthall and Virginia Wade secured wins for the women’s game. Andy Murray is one of the few Brits to have made their mark in the modern game. He finished as the runner-up in 2008, the year in which Roger Federer won his 5th tournament in a row, and four years later he went one better when he beat Djokovic in the final. When thinking about uk tennis bets, you will not find many more British names in the singles event, but it’s a different story with the doubles. Jaime Murray, Andy’s brother, made it to two consecutive finals in 2015 and 2016 for the men’s doubles, losing the first and winning the second; the women’s doubles saw multiple British successes in the early years, with Betty Nuthall winning three titles; and the very first mixed doubles event was actually won by the British-American team of Mabel Cahill (born in Ireland) and Clarence Hobart.
US Open Tennis Betting
The US Open tennis tournament has witnessed many eras of dominance, when it seems like the winner is obvious before the tournament even begins.
