US Open Tennis Betting Guide

The US Open is the final Grand Slam of each year and is certainly one of the most interesting tournaments of the year. The event is held at Flushing Meadows in the Queens area of New York and it's known for it's partizan crowds. The event therefore has a great coverage in the media, but nevertheless it is not even close to the most prestigious Grand Slam in Wimbledon.

Unfortunately, the venue is definitely not the best when it comes to coping with bad weather. There is no roof in place at the moment and rain can greatly delay the tournament. The tournament is regularly blighted by bad weather and two full days were lost in the 2011 tournament to rain, even the threat of hurricanes have disrupted the schedule in recent years.

There are some other important things that you have to know. For example, the deciding set does not continue until it is won by two games. A regular tie-break is played instead. This might seem like a minor change, but it actually means quite a lot. Some players like the change, but there are also many players that would prefer the traditional system where a player is required to win by two clear games instead.

Since it is basically the last really important tournament of the season, players are looking to finish on a high note. There are many hard court tournaments just before the Grand Slam, but the performances might not be very indicative. The conditions are pretty tough and many players try to save some energy for the big one. Even Nadal used that strategy in 2010 – and it was certainly worth it.

Like Wimbledon, the US Open was once dominated by Roger Federer. In 2009, he was finally defeated by Juan Martin Del Potro after winning five consecutive titles. That was a huge shock at the time and the defeat certainly had a lasting effect on the player from Switzerland. 2012 saw Andy Murray achieve his first Grand Slam victory with an epic five-set victory over Novak Djokovic. It took Murray six minutes short of five hours to beat the Serbian to become the first British male since Fred Perry in 1936 to win a Grand Slam title. The ladies tourament saw Serena Williams claim her fourth US Open title with a 3 set win over Victoria Azarenka.

The artificial surface (DecoTurf) is quite quick and definitely favours players that are able to put some pace on the ball. Players that are able to step into the court and attack tend to do well in this Grand Slam. Most American players also raise their game for this event and it seems that home advantage plays a role in the tournament.
