2019 US Open Women’s Singles Overview
Above all Naomi Osaka went from a no-name to US Open champion in 2018. Osaka stunned the world with her dominant Tennis Betting Odds upset win in the Final over Williams 6-2, 6-4. Yet astute gamblers shied away from Williams. She has been in decline since her last Grand Slam win at Australia in 2017. Since 2015 Flavia Pennetta, Angelique Kerber, and Sloane Stephens won the US Open before Osaka. Overall Williams ranks third for all-time US Open titles at six. This year’s field looks wide open with several top candidates.
The second choice with gamblers to win the US Open is Simona Halep. The 27-year-old Romanian has already posted an online betting championship win at Wimbledon this year. Last year Halep won the French Open. In turn, Halep ranks second in the Women’s Tennis Association Singles Race Rankings for 2019.
Concurrently Naomi Osaka ranks sixth in the WTA Singles Race Standings heading into the US Open. She opened the 2019 season with a Grand Slam win at Australia. Osaka’s win last year over Williams firmly established her credentials as among the best in women’s singles. Last time out she was defeated by Williams in the quarterfinals of the Canadian Open. Osaka is only 21 years old and from Japan.
Extending the impressive women’s singles lineup is 23-year-old Australian Ashleigh Barty. Barty won this year’s French Open which was the only Grand Slam title of her career. Barty leads the WTA Singles Race Rankings entering action from New York. By contrast, she was a disappointing 32nd at the Canadian Open.
Encompassing Williams high price is that she is 37 years old. At first, her ninth-place ranking in the Single Race is worrisome. Of great concern to opponents was her strong showing at the Canadian Open. Williams made it to the Final before having to retire against Bianca Andreescu when trailing 3-1.
Matchup to Watch
On this occasion, Williams will garner justifiable respect with the Tennis betting odds.Counter to that is a younger core of talented players that have shown well against her. Osaka makes for a strong case to repeat and establish her legitimacy.
