How ready are you for the US Open? Pretty psyched to have the last Grand Slam of the year begin, right? There are going to be tons of things to watch for, such as whether will we see Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz in the final. We hope so!
Plus, Djokovic could overtake Alcaraz atop the ATP rankings again with a deep run in the tournament. Or an early exit by Alcaraz. Djoko is probably going to make a run at the title. Alcaraz isn’t likely to lose early.
On the WTA side, Iga Swiatek has been atop the ranking for 73 straight weeks. She is also the defending champion at the US Open. She appears to be the favorite. But maybe Ons Jabeur, who was the runner-up at the US Open in 2022, will finally win her first major.
If I had a guess (and I guess I do, but don’t bet any money on it), I think the men’s final is once again Djokovic and Alcaraz and I think Alcaraz wins in five sets. On the women’s side, I am going to go with the hot hand. Coco Gauff will defeat Swiatek for Gauff’s first Grand Slam victory.
