Who are the favourites heading into the US Open?

The Men’s Competition

The big three of Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer head to New York City with 20 Grand Slam titles apiece, meaning this competition could be a huge swing trophy for the trio. Last year’s winner Dominic Thiem could have something to say about this however, with the Austrian accruing a healthy collection of Grand Slam trophies. As for the favourite, Djokovic has plenty to compete for – a US Open win would mean he would be the second ever player after Steffi Graf to obtain the Golden Slam (four Grand Slam tournament wins and an Olympic gold medal in the same year).

The Women’s Competition

The men’s competition may not have much Australian representation, but the women’s competition is headed by the pride of the nation in Ash Barty. The world number one bowed out of the Olympic competition after winning her second major tournament at Wimbledon, however second seed Naomi Osaka has been in flying form and will look to prove a worthy competitor for Barty. Serena Williams sits at 15 seed in the rankings – unrepresentative of her 23 Grand Slam wins.
