2020 US Open Tips - Difficult to see past Djokovic
It looks to be a one act affair in 2020 for the world number one Novak Djokovic. He comes here on the back of cruising through tournaments where he barely got out of second gear, and strikes a draw that doesn’t feature Federer, Nadal or Kyrgios.
He is a prohibitive favourite at $1.80 and with only Tsitsipas and to a lesser extent Alex Zverev (who made headlines for all the wrong reasons in the lead up to this year’s Open), Novak looks almost a sure thing to reach the final. Djokovic is undefeated in 2020 and that should continue over the next two weeks.
Away from Novak it’s difficult to find anything of real value. Medvedev is the likely challenger after his herculean effort last year to take Nadal to an epic 5-set final where he just fell short. He knows what it takes to get to the end and this year has a very easy quarter en route to the final, with only Dom Thiem as a live threat to his chances of reaching it.
If there is to be a huge boilover, Roberto Bautista Agut played a fantastic semi-final against Djokovic in the lead up tournament and has proven himself to be a very handy player on hard courts.
It's difficult seeing past Novak Djokovic for the win. Seek value with Medevev to win Quarter 3 and Roberto Bautista Agut to win Quarter 4.
