Sunday’s Wimbledon men’s final was recorded as the longest singles final in the history of the tournament. Just shy of five hours from the start of the match, Novak Djokovic claimed his second consecutive and fifth career Wimbledon title, defeating eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer.
We’re more than a month away from the fourth and final Grand Slam tournament of the season, but it’s never too early to start looking at the odds on the DraftKings Sportsbook:
US Open Men’s Singles Winner Odds
– Novak Djokovic: +125
– Rafael Nadal: +450
– Roger Federer: +550

As mentioned, Djokovic has won two Wimbledon titles in a row, and he’ll have the chance to do the same for the US Open. Last season, Djokovic took his third US Open championship, defeating Juan Martin Del Potro (who comes in with the fourth-shortest US Open odds at +1400.) Going back-to-back in two Grand Slams in the same season hasn’t been done since Federer’s run of dominance in the mid-2000s. Historical significance aside, Novak is well-suited for the hard courts at the US Open. He’s in outstanding form and not showing any signs of slowing down, even after the longest Wimbledon men’s final ever.
Although Federer beat Nadal in the semifinals at Wimbledon, Rafael holds shorter odds than Roger. All-time US Open stats favor the Swiss, with five titles for Federer and three for Nadal, but those might be deceiving. Federer’s most recent US Open win came in 2008, while all three of Nadal’s victories have happened since then. The Spaniard’s most recent US Open championship was in 2017.
For those keeping an eye on the Grand Slam all-time race, here’s an update after Wimbledon:
– Roger Federer (20)
– Rafael Nadal (18)
– Novak Djokovic (16)
Djokovic has claimed 15 of his Grand Slam titles in this decade. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him become the all-time leader within the next four seasons. But if you’re rooting for the other guys, here’s a fun fact: The US Open is the only Grand Slam tournament final Federer and Nadal have never met in. I’d say it’s about time that changed.
