Magic Murray Is A Top Tip For The US Open

The 2017 Men's US Open winner may well be the last man standing if the recent glut of withdrawals is anything to go by and it is the legendary figure of Roger Federer who is the bookmakers favourite, although we fancy that there is value to be found elsewhere...
*Article amended since Andy Murray withdrew injured.

The Favourites

Federer has already landed the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns this year and he is a 6/4 favourite when bidding for a sixth US Open title at Flushing Meadows. His last title in this hard court major came in 2008 though and 6/4 is a very short price for a player who has been struggling with a back injury in the warm-ups.

Federer is a worthy favourite with Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and now Andy Murray all absent but his price makes little appeal for us and we will be lookng elsewhere for value...

Rafael Nadal is next best at 11/4 and is a two-time former US Open champion, albeit he has had his problems on hard courts and it is difficult to back him at such a short price away from his favoured clay courts.

The up-and-coming Alex Zverev is available at 8/1 following some fine results in Masters tournaments but he has never been beyond the fourth round of a major and we will instead be focusing on three men with experience of going deep in majors...

The Tip Off - US Open Preview

The Selections

Juan Martin Del Potro has had his injury worries over the years but he loves playing at Flushing Meadows and 33/1 (Boylesports) is a very big price for the 2009 US Open winner. This may be a sentimental pick but it was only twelve months ago that the Argentine was taking a silver medal home from the Olympics and he is surely worth an each-way play at the prices.

The likes of Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios will also make appeal for some this week but they haven't shown us that they have the minerals for the big occasion over the course of five sets and two weeks.

Instead, we will back the tried and trusted David Ferrer at a massive 200/1 (PaddyPower.com). The Spaniard has come back from some injury problems to re-enter the top-25 of the world rankings and he has performed well during the recent hard court swing as he only lost out to Federer in Canada before reaching the semi-finals of Cincinnati.

At the prices, the two-time US Open semi-finalist could give us a run for our money.
