Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro have both been absent from the tournament, and Martin de Potro is the only non-Big Four individual to win a grand slam between 2005 and 2013.By default, Novak Djokovic became the No. 1 seed; although, the Serb is a perennial favorite regardless of Nadal being in competition or not.The shaken up tournament has created opportunities for individuals like Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka. One a legend of the sport who hasn’t won a grand slam title since 2012 and the other a fringe contender that won his first back at the Australian Open in January.
Through the first rounds of the tournament in New York, both Federer and Wawrinka have navigated the bracket unscathed, the former having lost but one single set. Over the course of the weekend, they’ll duke it out with each other and Djokovic for the tournament’s top honors.
Djokovic is 1/1 to win the US Open, and Federer follows suit with 2/1. Other contenders like Wawrinka (12/1) and Andy Murray (6/1) can be found further down the tennis futures.
