US Open 2020 odds: Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Naomi Osaka among favorites for 140th edition of event
The tennis schedule was completely altered in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The US Open is the second Grand Slam tournament of the year after the Australian Open was played in in late January. Wimbledon was canceled due to COVID-19, and its the first time that the tournament will not be played since World War II.
The 2020 US Open is going to look a lot different than it normally would. A large amount of high-profile stars have elected not to participate in the US Open this year as a result of COVID-19. That list includes defending champions Rafael Nadal and Bianca Andreescu, along with Ashleigh Barty and Simona Halep. Roger Federer will also miss the US Open and won’t return to the court until 2021 as a result of a knee injury.
Simply put, the US Open field will look a whole lot different than it normally does. Quite a bit of the star power is absent from this year’s group. A few constants will remain the same with former champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams entering the tournament as the favorites to win it all.
