  • Raducanu was the first pro player ever to win a major tournament as a qualifier.

Last year was an awfully long time ago. Most of us can’t remember our bank password; how are we supposed to remember who won the women’s US Open last year?

Fortunately, I’m on the case with all the tennis betting info and US Open odds you need to know.

How to Bet on the 2022 Women’s US Open

Unsurprisingly, No. 1 Iga Swiatek is the favorite to win this year’s US Open. She’s currently priced at +275, which is a decent price for a tennis player who is 27-4 on hardcourt this calendar year.

Simona Halep (+700) and Naomi Osaka (+800) are the next players in the odds chart. I would strongly think about a Halep bet.

Other notable players in the women’s US Open odds market: Elena Rybakina (+1200), Raducanu (+1200), Serena Williams (+1600), Fernandez (+2000) and Anett Kontaveit (2000).
