Eurosport channel expert named his main favorites of the US Open

John McEnroe named the tournament favorites before the start of the US Open. Among them is Russian Daniil Medvedev.

Of course among the Big Three of US Open are Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer. But the fixture list is changing rapidly and should be perused meticulously. Almost everything depends on the draw (read luck). Also, athletes often get injured or just can’t concentrate at big events such as US Open. Just for example, such star players like Maria Sharapova showed an extremely bad performance (as for her professional level) because of undertreated injury and Naomi Osaka seems to show little enthusiasm in the tournament at all.

That is why when you analyze the players’ chances and bet at it’s better to listen to such experts like John McEnroe, the ex-first racket of the world and the seven-time winner of the Grand Slam tournaments.

According to McEnroe, Dominic Tim looked very powerful, but then he got health problems and after Roland Garros had ups and downs. If you look around thoroughly, you’d notice Stan Wawrinka, who is considered to be a dark horse. In McEnroe’s opinion, Karen Khachanov is moving in the right direction too.

Also, 23-year-old Russian Daniil Medvedev has recently attracted increased attention and flattering reviews from the most eminent experts. If you remove the abovementioned Big Three, Medvedev will be among the top candidates for victory. He is both mentally and tactically prepared, thinks McEnroe.
