The US Men’s tennis, the final Grand Slam event of the season is nearly with us and Double Olympic Gold Medallist Andy Murray has some strong claims to be going into the event as favourite, even if the bookmakers don’t quite see it that way. His form through the summer has been immense, claiming both the Wimbledon and Olympic titles and even on an immediate return from Rio, he ran to the final of Cincinatti, something which surprised even himself. He lost out in the final to Marin Cilic after his long trip, a lot of work and a sore shoulder.
Much like the Olympics, with Roger Federer out of the picture and the recent failures of Novak Djokovic, the chance could be there for Murray to reign at Flushing Meadows again. The 2012 US Open winner is running at 2/1 to take the title this time around, the only man shorter in the field than him of course is world number one Novak Djokovic. But the Serbian misfired at Wimbledon and then was left in tears of disappointment after his shock early exit from the Olympics Games. Has he ran out of steam for the season?

Murray will be looking for his fourth Grand Slam title of his career and a way to cap off a brilliant year where he also finished as runner up in the Australian and French Open this season. The big threat is Djokovic who is likely to be wound up and chomping at the bit to get over the recent major disparities which he has suffered. The Serbian’s wounded pride adds some fuel to the fire. Beyond the big two then you have Wimbledon 2016 losing finalist Milos Raonic at 16/1, Stan Wawrinka at 20/1, Juan Martin del Potro at 22/1 and Rafael Nadal at 25/1 as options.
