The 2021 US Open


Men's Singles

The US Open could see some history made this year. Novak Djokovic is bidding to win the title and make it all four Grand Slam titles won by the world number one this year. There's no defending champion Dominic Thiem, Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer. The main opposition to Djokovic will come from Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev. Others to consider include Matteo Berrettini (who lost to Djokovic in the Wimbledon final this year) and Andrey Rublev.


  1. Novak Djokovic
  2. Daniil Medvedev
  3. Stefanos Tsitsipas
  4. Alexander Zverev
  5. Andrey Rublev
  6.  Matteo Berrettini
  7. Denis Shapovalov
  8. Casper Ruud
  9. Pablo Carreno Busta
  10. Hubert Hurkacz
  11. Diego Schwartzman
  12. Felix Auger-Aliassime
  13. Jannik Sinner
  14. Alex de Minaur
  15. Grigor Dimitrov
  16. Cristian Garin.

The draw has been made and Novak Djokovic is seeded to play Matteo Berrettini in the last eight. Early seeded opponents for the world number one are scheduled to include David Goffin and Aslan Karatsev.  If Djokovic makes it to the semi-final, his scheduled opponent is Olympic champion Alexander Zverev.  Second seeded Daniil Medvedev could meet Casper Ruud in the quarter final and Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last four. Tsitsipas faces Andy Murray in the pick of the first round matches and could take on Andrey Rublev in the last eight, so not the easiest of draws for the Greek.

Who will Win the Men's Singles?

  • Novak Djokovic - 8/11
  • Daniil Medvedev - 39/10
  • Alexander Zverev - 11/2
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas - 81/10
  • Andrey Rublev - 28/1
  • Matteo Berrettini - 33/1

Djokovic Looking to Win Fourth US Open Title

Novak Djokovic US Open

Novak Djokovic is the world number one and has won eight of the last 11 Grand Slams. He has won all three of the Grand Slam tournaments held this year and if winning here will become only the second man to win the Calendar Grand Slam. It's a feat that hasn't been achieved since Rod Laver won all four in 1969. A win for Djokovic will also be the 21st career Grand Slam win for Djokovic taking him above Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as the winner of most Grand Slam men's singles titles.

Djokovic has only won this title once since 2015 with his last win in 2018. Last year he was defaulted when hitting a ball that struck a line judge. The world number one hasn't played since the Olympics when pulling out of a mixed singles match due to injury.

Medvedev Still Looking for First Grand Slam Title


Daniil Medvedev is the world number two but has yet to win a Grand Slam men's singles title. The best the Russian has managed is losing in the final here to Rafael Nadal in 2019 and then in Australia to Novak Djokovic earlier this year. In 2020, he made it to the semi-finals, being beaten by Andrey Rublev. Other Grand Slams this year have seen him lose in the last eight at Roland Garros and the fourth round at Wimbledon. Medvedev began this year winning the ATP Cup with Russia and has won three singles titles, most recently the Canadian Open which is a Masters tournament.

Surprises Likely But Who will Cause Them?


Novak Djokovic is clear at the top of the world rankings but there are younger heirs to the throne. Could one of them win the US Open this year?  Alexander Zverev is the fourth seed and recently won the Gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. He followed that with a win in the Cincinnati Masters beating both Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev. He's won his last 11 matches, so has to be a contender here to win his fifth title of the year. Zverev has won four titles this year (two at Masters level) and could well be a tough match in the last eight where Djokovic is his scheduled opponent.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has also had a successful year and has reached two Masters semi-finals in recent weeks. The Greek has won two titles this year and will go through the $3m prize money barrier in this tournament.  Andrey Rublev is another contender with one title win and partnering Medvedev in the ATP Cup. He recently made it to the final in Cincinatti so is in good form coming into this tournament. For outsiders, go for players such as John Isner and Matteo Berrettini.

Women's Singles


Not since 2014 has the women's singles title been successfully defended at the US Open. Serena Williams achieved that feat but has withdrawn from this event. Naomi Osaka is the defending champion and has won this title twice in the last three years. World number one Ashleigh Barty won Wimbledon this year and would love to win another Grand Slam, Second seed this year is Aryna Sabalenka who is yet to reach a Grand Slam final.

It's almost a tradition now that women's singles events in Grand Slams are both open and difficult to predict. That looks to be the case again this year but one fact we can predict is that there will be a new champion this year. Several players have already withdrawn from this tournament including the reigning champion Bianca Andreescu (herself a surprise winner last year) and world number one Ashleigh Barty. The list of notable absentees continues with Simona Halep, Belinda Bencic, Kiki Bertens, Elina Svitolina, Julia Gorges and Jelena Ostapenko. 

Serena Williams has confirmed that she will be playing and the top seed is due to be Karolina Pliskova. Number two seed is likely to be Sofia Kenin who caused a shock when winning the Australian Open this year. Former champion Naomi Osaka is also due to be playing and the 2018 champion will be a major threat.

Predicting women's singles tournaments is never an easy task. Ashleigh Barty is the form player coming into this US Open. The Australian won Wimbledon and recently won the Cincinnati Masters making it five singles titles this year. If playing to her best, then Barty can win her first US Open. The last eight is likely to see her up against either Iga Swiatek or Olympic champion Belinda Bencic. Her seeded opponent in the semi-final is Karolina Pliskova who she beat in the Wimbledon final.

Aryna Sabalenka is the second seed but the semi-final reached at Wimbledon this year is her best Grand Slam performance. Naomi Osaka defends her title but there are still worries over her health and has a tough draw with players such as Angelique Kerber, recent tournament winner Elina Svitolina and Sabalenka to deal with. Also in her half of the draw is French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova who amazingly is in the main draw of this tournament for the first time but a real contender. It'd be great to see Osaka triumph after a difficult year and she does love this tournament. Outsiders to consider include Ons Jabuer, Coco Gauff Petra Kvitova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
