World No. 1 Novak Djokovic aims for his 18th Grand Slam singles title when the 2020 U.S. Open begins on Monday from the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. If the favored Djokovic delivers, he’ll move within one Grand Slam singles crown of Rafael Nadal, and two behind Roger Federer’s all-time record. Neither Nadal nor Federer opted to travel to New York for the 140th U.S. Open, Nadal citing the coronavirus pandemic and Federer dealing with a knee injury.
Djokovic, who is getting over a neck injury, won’t have a cakewalk, with several young contenders eager to knock him off. William Hill lists Djokovic as the -125 favorite (risk $125 to win $100), followed by Daniil Medvedev (6-1), Stefanos Tsitsipas (7-1), Dominic Thiem (7-1), Milos Raonic (20-1), Alexander Zverev (25-1) and Roberto Bautista Agut (25-1). Before you make any 2020 U.S. Open picks or tennis predictions, see what renowned tennis handicapper Sean Calvert has to say.
Calvert is the famed handicapper who took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1 last year. He’s racked up seven straight profitable seasons betting tennis.
At Wimbledon last year, Calvert told his followers to grab 3-1 odds on Djokovic facing Federer in the final, adding Djokovic would win it all. The result: Djokovic and Federer cruised into the finals, with Djokovic winning the longest men’s singles final in tournament history for his fifth Wimbledon crown. Anyone who followed Calvert’s advice was handsomely rewarded.
And Calvert owns the U.S. Open. Since 2013, $100 bettors who have followed his U.S. Open picks are up a whopping $8,540.
Now, Calvert has broken down the latest U.S. Open 2020 odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. Head to SportsLine to see them.

One shocker: Calvert wants no part of Thiem, who “will surely find the faster courts a big negative.” That was the case on Monday at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center when Thiem lost 6-2, 6-1 to Filip Krajinovic in the Western & Southern Open.
“I’ve always found Thiem one player who needs matches and rhythm to play his best stuff, as well as a slower surface than this one,” Calvert told SportsLine.
