Arrow Oddsmakers: Federer again for U.S. Open

Sure Shot: Oddsmakers Favor Federer To Defend U.S. Open

Roger Federer will make his summer hard-court debut in Cincinnati next week, but the world No. 1 is first rate among oddsmakers who favor Federer to successfully defend his U.S. Open title. The five-time Grand Slam champion is a 5-8 favorite to capture his second consecutive major title at Flushing Meadow.


Sports Betting.com has installed the Swiss stylist as the odds on favorite to win the Open.

Andy Roddick, who was upset in his opening-round Rogers Cup match last night, follows Federer as a 7-2 shot to reclaim the U.S. Open title he won in 2003. Reigning Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal, who has won all eight of his tournament titles on clay this season, is a 6-1 shot to win his second major of the year.

Former U.S. Open champions Lleyton Hewitt and Marat Safin are both 10-1 shots to win the Open. Two-time U.S. Open champion Andre Agassi and 2002 Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian are both listed at 25-1.

Notable long shots include: Ivan Ljubicic, 30-1, Tim Henman, 50-1 and Taylor Dent, 75-1.

Re: Oddsmakers: Federer again for U.S. Open

Interesting, especially with his foot injury and his long lay off. He might be rusty, but plz prove me wrong Fed

Riddock 7-2? What a joke...
When did they forget, he's number 5 in the entry ranking.

Agassi only at 25-1?

Haven't they seen him play recently or something?

Re: Oddsmakers: Federer again for U.S. Open

Agassi for me is a long shot indeed i don't think sh should be shorter, Agassi throughout his career has been the sort of player if he get's on top of you he will run away with it against the lesser players, hence his current form since he has been back he hasn't really played a top player and i don't think he would be able to beat either Fed-Roddick-Hewitt or even Nadal at the us and i can't see him not meeting any of these guys on his way to trying to win the event.

I think the Bookies are quite happy to lay Agassi as they know there will be intrest because of who he is and possibly his last Major who knows.

Re: Oddsmakers: Federer again for U.S. Open

The real joke are Federer's odds to win Wimbledon 2006. It's something around 1.60, and remember these odds are to win OUTRIGHT, not to win one match

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

It's not like he recently injured his foot. The foot condition has been an ongoing problem all year....yet he's been winning tournaments. The lay off hasn't been that long either. He would never bother with the small US tournaments like Indy, LA, and Washington. Not entering Roger's Cup is too bad because it's turning into a cakewalk. Let's see how Roger does in Cincy.

Roger Forever !

Holy Fuck really, I mean Fed is in another class on grass but I am sure even he knows that anything is possible. Isnt he going to try out more clay tournies next year for RG preparation too, that should factor heavily on his performances at Wimby

These are very very low odds for winning a whole tournament, in this case even a Grand Slam and having to predict that 11 months in advance.
So if Federer is injured or just running bad form, you will get your stakes in most cases not refunded.

I can imagine if Federer is in good form and wins Halle again, the odds for him to win Wimbledon outright could be even lower then, maybe 1.40

not even sampras was this low in the midst of his wimbledon run

actually you will find fed is $1.50 to win Wimbledon next year and $1.60 to win US open, both insane odds
