http://sportstalk24.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/tabel-tennis.jpgUS Open Entry List Announced – Watch the market odds, Federer, Nadal & Murray among favourites




Andy Murray tops the entry list for the US Open despite concerns over his fitness ahead of the final Grand Slam tournament of the season.

The world’s top 99 ranked players are all entered and they include former champions Murray, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Stan Wawrinka is also due to return to defend the title he won last September.

However, like Murray, who is struggling with a long-term hip problem, both Wawrinka (knee) and Djokovic (elbow) have admitted the need to rest with some questioning whether they will compete at Flushing Meadows from August 28 to September 10.




Murray is currently the 9/2 third favourite with Sky Bet. he sits behind Federer (9/4) and Nadal (4/1) in the market but ahead of both Djokovic (5/1) and Wawrinka (12/1).

There are 13 Americans among the 99 women receiving direct entry, more than any other country.

Murray, who won his first major title at the U.S. Open in 2012, is joined by these other past champs in the field: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro.

Using protected rankings to get in: Andreas Haider-Maurer, Thanasi Kokkinakis, John Millman, Dmitry Tursunov and Ricardas Berankis.

Main-draw play at the U.S. Open begins Aug. 28.

Six-time U.S. Open champion Serena Williams (pregnant) and Bethanie Mattek-Sands (knee surgery) are among the women who will not be competing in New York.

Azarenka, Sloane Stephens, Anna-Lena Friedsam, Alja Tomljanovic and Sabine Lisicki used a special ranking to get into the main draw.

In the women’s draw, 99 of the top 105 are entered, led by new world number one Karolina Pliskova, a 7/1 shot.




Briton Johanna Konta (8/1) will also fancy her chances on her favourite hardcourt surface.

The most notable absentee will be reigning champion Serena Williams, who is currently pregnant and could give birth during this year’s tournament.

Mandy Minella also misses out due to pregnancy, while Laura Siegemund, Yaroslava Shvedova, Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Kristina Kucova all have long-term injuries.

American Julia Boserup is the last player to earn direct acceptance, while five women use their protected ranking to play.

The most high-proifle is former world number one Victoria Azarenka, who is Sky Bet’s joint favourite at 6/1 alongside Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza.
