US Open 2023 favorites
Below you'll find a list of the favorites to win the Women's 2023 US Open tennis tournament.
Iga Swiatek - (+240)
After winning the 2022 US Open and then the 2023 French Open, the world number one is the queen of the hard courts and there's no surprise she's the favorite once again.
Her overall record at the tournament is 13-3 which is winning 81% of her matches, the only major where she performs better is the French Open with a win-rate of 93%. Hard courts suit her game best where she hits with great power, and has fantastic footwork to get across the court quickly.
Despite still only being 22, she has built up quite the resume with a career record of 266–64, 15 career titles including four Grand Slams - which have all come on hard courts.
She's slowly becoming the Rafael Nadal of the women's game on this surface, and anyone beating her would have to be absolutely perfect throughout. She's the best in the world for a reason and knows it too, so getting her at more than two-to-one is great value when you take it all into account.

Aryna Sabalenka - (+500)
Second favorite in the betting is Aryna Sabelenka who will also be looking to become a multiple-time Grand Slam winner at this event following her victory in the 2023 Australian Open back in January.
The world number 2's best-ever US Open finish came at her last two appearances, reaching the semi-finals in 2021 and 2022. Her full record at the event is 15-5 which is a win rate of 75%. Her career record so far is 349–170 and 13 career titles.
Sabalenka has a very aggressive style of play, often accumulating high numbers of winners and unforced errors. At just 25 she is only getting better, and with her height being a big advantage it also gives her a very powerful serve which makes her a contender.
Her performances at this event in the past give good reason to believe she can go deep again, and if Swiatek slips up then she should be there to capitalize at +500.

Elena Ryabinka - (+650)
Third favourite for the 2023 US Open is Elena Rybakina who will be looking to land her second career Grand Slam at the US Open after winning Wimbledon in 2022.
World number 4 Ryabinka's best finish at the event came in 2021 when she reached the third round. However, it has been quite the rise from Elena in the last year as in at the 2022 US Open she was only seeded 25th and was knocked out in the first-round by Clara Burel who was only a qualifier.
Since then she has really upped her game however and found success in several tournaments including the Indian Wells Open and Italian Open, while reaching the final of the Australian Open, quarter-final at Wimbledon and semi-final of the Canadian Open.
With that said though the hard court surface isn't her strongest and doesn't suit her game the best. She's a bit slower with her strokes and a bit less powerful, although her speed is good. If she figures out how best to implement her style here then she's got a chance, but it seems a bit of a stretch at this moment in time.
Coco Gauff - (+1200)
The current world number six is yet to win a Grand Slam title in her young career, but the 19-year-old is coming into this tournament in fantastic form.
The American will be on home soil and is coming off the back of arguably the biggest win of her career to date after she claimed victory in the final of the Cincinnati Masters final by defeating Karolina Muchova 6-3 6-4 last week, following on from a three-set win over Iga Swiatek in the semi-final.
Last year saw her best performance in this tournament when she reached the quarter-final for the first time, but there have been relatively significant improvements to her game since then that stand her in good stead to go even further this time around.
Flying with confidence and off the back of a big win, getting Gauff at this price is fantastic value and could prove a slick bet with the home crowd getting behind her and pushing her on in the latter stages.
