The US Open (formally the United States Open Tennis Championships) is the last of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments each year. Played outdoors on hard courts since 1978 (having previously been played on grass and clay), the first tournament was played in 1881, making it one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world. After Wimbledon, it is probably the most coveted title in professional tennis.
In the Open era (i.e., post 1968), the record for the most men’s singles titles is five, jointly held by Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer, while Chris Evert and Serena Williams are the record holders for women’s singles titles, both having won the tournament six times. The 2017 US Open winners were Spain’s Rafael Nadal and Sloane Stephens (USA).
The 2018 US Open will begin on Monday 27 August, with the final day’s play scheduled for Sunday 9 September, and will be played at Flushing Meadows in New York City. Prize money for this year’s tournament is USD$50.4 million, with the purse for the singles titles winners worth USD$3.7 million each.
Betting on the US Open, or any tennis tournament, can be extremely exciting. This is because matches can swing quite dramatically and quickly, and also because each point is, in a way, a mini match, so the range of betting options is enormous. This is also why tennis is ideal for betting using a mobile sports app.
If you are having a punt on the 2018 US Open as a whole, you can bet who will make the Last 16, the quarter and semi finals, and who will be the eventual winner. Most sports betting apps will also give you the option of betting each way, where if the player you back to be the overall winner makes the final but loses, you get paid out at ½ the odds.
Tennis apps also give you a huge range of markets on each individual match, with many more opportunities for in-play betting than most other sports. For instance, you can bet live on who will win a particular point or game, as well as what the final score in a game might be after two or three points have been played. You can also bet on the winner and final score in a game, as well as the winner and score of each set. Other markets available on each match include how many times deuce will be reached within a given game or set, or how many aces and/or double faults will be served. The US Open also provides plenty of options for multi bets and accas, where you can combine your selections for four or more matches into a single bet.
The large range of markets on offer, including the innumerable betting options available in each and every match, is why if you are going to have a punt on the 2018 US Open, the best way to do so is using a tennis betting app.
Because there is always so much going on in a tennis match, and you have so many betting options in every game and set, a mobile tennis app is the best way to keep up with the 2018 US Open.
In particular, a mobile app enables you to bet in play, meaning you could essentially bet on each and every point. Using a tennis app also means that you can keep up with the fluctuating odds as a match ebbs and flows, or take advantage of Cash Out if your bet or acca isn’t working out as you intended.
Another reason to download a tennis betting app is that when Grand Slam tournaments like the US Open come around, there are always plenty of great specials available. You can also enjoy a range of other features, like live streaming and visualisations, match replays, as well as comprehensive statistics and form guides. This means that you not only get access to a multitude of markets and specials, but you also get all the background information and tips you need to stay fully informed throughout the 2018 US Open.
