US Open Odds 2014 Women’s Singles

serena williamsThe 2014 US Open gets underway in two weeks and it is expected Serena Williams will dominate the the women’s singles side of the ledger now that she is back to full strength. The latest tennis odds from Sportsbook.ag have Williams listed as a +200 favorite to win the season’s final major. If Williams is, indeed, able to tame the rest of the field at Flushing Meadows, it would mark her first Grand Slam win this year.

While Serena Williams is the offshore bookmaker’s clear cut favorite to win the US Open, Maria Sharapova, Eugenie Bouchard, Victoria Azarenka and Simona Halep are also considered championship contenders. Sharapova, who won her first and only US Open title back in 2006, is getting +600 odds to win her second major of the season (French Open). Bouchard and Azarenka, meanwhile, are lined at +700 odds apiece while Halep is drawing a +800 US Open line ($100 wins $800).

Williams has faltered on the big stage this year, falling out in the fourth, second and third rounds at Melbourne, Paris and Wimbledon, respectively; however, she is still atop the WTA’s women’s singles rankings with 9150 points. The second closest player is the aforementioned Halep with a total of 6785.

As her point total and ranking would suggest, Williams’ Grand Slam performances have belied an otherwise solid 2014 campaign. Williams is 33-6 in singles matches this season and she claimed her fourth title of 2014 (tops in the WTA) last week with a straight sets win over Angelique Kerber in the finale of the Bank of the West Classic.

Williams, who has played just one tournament since bowing out at Wimbledon with a viral illness, claimed her second straight and fifth overall US Open title at Flushing Meadows last year.
