- Aryna Sabalenka +500
- Elena Rybakina +700
- Coco Gauff +1000

Swiatek Overwhelming Favorite
Swiatek has won three hardcourt titles and reached two other finals since her maiden US Open victory. The World No. 1 added her third French Open title to her mantle case and boasted an 84% winning percentage on cement over the past 52 weeks.
Sabalenka opened the season with a huge Australian Open title and reached the Indian Wells final in March but hasn’t had a hardcourt title since winning Down Under. Sabalenka has one of the biggest serves on tour and is 33-10 this season on the hard stuff.
Rybakina has reached the finals of the three most significant hardcourt events this season, reaching the Australian Open and Miami finals while defeating Sabalenka in Indian Wells. Rybakina leads the WTA in aces but hasn’t made it past the second round here in five attempts.
Gauff and Pegula are Rolling
Americans Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula are playing the best ball on cement this summer. They are doubles partners with a shot at that title, but the two American stars each have a chance to hoist the cup.
Gauff is having her best summer yet. The 19-year-old American won in Washington, fell to Pegula in the quarters in Montreal, and last week won her first WTA 1000 event in Cincinnati. Adding Brad Gilbert to her team this summer has helped immensely – Gauff reached the quarters in 2022 and will be a fan favorite throughout the event.
Pegula has the second most hardcourt victories on tour this season. Pegula reached the semis in Washington and won Montreal but suffered a second-round loss in Cincinnati to Marie Bouzkova. Pegula has the fourth-highest break-of-serve rate on the hard stuff and had her best Open last season, reaching the quarters before losing to Swiatek.
2023 US Open Darkhorses
This event is wide open, and many girls outside the five favorites could leave New York a Grand Slam champion. Keep your eyes on the following ladies over the next two weeks.
Vondrousova hasn’t had much success in New York, but she’s 21-9 on cement over the past 52 weeks and is a deadly player from both wings. The reigning Wimbledon champ is 5-2 post-Wimbledon with the fourth-highest break-of-serve rate this season.
American Jennifer Brady (+3500) missed nearly two years due to injury but returned to the tour this summer. Brady reached the 2020 US Open semifinal but is just 10-7 in New York. She’s played just a handful of matches this season, but her serve is a massive weapon and can make some noise in the Queens next week.
Garcia is an intriguing dark horse. She reached three hardcourt finals since her spectacular 2022 US Open semifinal run and has the fourth-highest ace percentage this season. She has a ton of points to defend, and I expect her to have a good tournament.
Liudmilla Samsonova, at +3500, is also an interesting player. She reached the finals in Montreal and has the ninth most wins this season on the hard stuff. Samsonova has the serve to win and reached the Round of 16 in 2022.
Maria Sakkari (+3500) reached the semis here in 2021 but lost in the first round of her last two Slam events and suffered a third-round defeat in Australia. Sakkari has reached six semifinals this season and has the serve and return game to win.
The 2023 US Open should be a great event. Any one of many players could claim this year’s title, and it will be interesting to see who winds up the Women’s Singles champion.
