US Open Tennis Mens Betting Preview

The U.S. Open has produced a lot of terrific matches already. As always, there have been plenty of upsets and also some unfortunate injuries. Jack Sock was looking great but had to retire early against Sasha Zverev.

The women's side has seen some massive early losses, with some boisterous fans on social media saying nasty things about the players, too. It's been very tough to see.

But, plenty of exciting action still remains in the men's draw. Let's take a look.

Looking at Sunday's Action

Only four of the eight players taking the courts on Sunday are ranked. And it is sure to provide a lot of intrigues. And only one single match features two players who are currently ranked. It is the showdown happening between #2 Daniil Medvedev and #24 Dan Evans.

Evans has had an impressive showing all tournament long, en route to reaching the round of 16. He is going to have his hands full with the second-ranked player in the draw, but crazier things have certainly happened.

Medvedev loves firing up a crowd, and now that it's full in the bleachers again, he should have a massive edge.

#11 Diego Schwartzman is facing Botic van de Zandschulp, who he should be able to dispose of in 3-4 sets and reach the quarterfinal.

Frances Tiafoe has been playing some of the best tennis of his young career, as he finds himself against the upstart Felix Auger Aliassime, ranked #12 right now. The winner of this will have advanced farther than anybody could possibly have predicted.

And lastly there is Peter Gojowczyk and Carlos Alcaraz Garfia. Both of them are relative unknowns to amateur tennis fans, and the winner of their match is going to make a big statement and will be a player to watch in the quarterfinals.

Monday's Action

On Monday, Novak Djokovic is going to be back on the court, trying to get to the quarterfinal. Jenson Brooksby stands in his way and has a tall task to try and knock a player that has won the last three Grand Slams.

#4 Alexander Zverev is trying to get by against #13 Jannik Sinner. This is a bit of a trap match as Sinner has been playing some tremendous tennis, though Zverev may well have the upper hand. It will be tough to see one of them have to lose.

Matteo Berrettini and his terrific serving have made it to the round of 16. The #6 player in the draw will be playing Oscar Otte, who has two wins in four sets and another sweep within his path to get here.

And lastly, there is Lloyd Harris going up against #22 Reilly Opelka. The only chance Harris has of coming away with a win when all is said and done is to win every one of his service games. Opelka packs a serious punch every time he launches the ball over the net. And he rarely ever gets broken.

Have to Defeat Novak

Novak Djokovic hasn't lost a match in a long time. He's won three straight slams. The U.S. Open is still his to lose, but if someone can pull the upset, it would open the draw right up.
