US Open Round 1 Discussion

Looking at the draw, who do you think gets upset? Who's at risk? Who has the easiest path?

This probably is a cop out answer but much like betting odds in tennis, the favorite is normally a safe bet every time. That said, its gotta be Djokovic. He hasn't lost yet this year, won't have to face Federer or Nadal. Is coming off another masters win. And the only potential challenge I see for him late in the draw is Shapovolov. But I think he'll handle him. I'm a huge fan of Medvedev in the other half of the draw and Raonic is an intriguing look too. But this feels like those old golf majors when Tiger was just so much better than everyone else that you could literally bet Tiger vs the field. To me, it feels like Djokovic against the field.
