Juan Martin Del Porto – Ranked number 3 in the world Del Porto is not the most popular name but he has a legitimate chance at winning the Open this year.
John Isner – The top US contender for the men’s group, Isner has 2 wins this year beating Del Porto and Zverev showing he has the ability to beat top ranked talent. Look for Isner to try and fight his way to the finals.
Andy Murray – Unranked but still in the Big 4 of Grand Slams with Rafa, Federer and Djokovic, Murray has ben injured for most of the year but has saved up all his energy for this event. A true dark horse favorite of the open.
Sloane Stephens – Not really too high in the betting odds, the #3 world ranked youngster Sloane Stephens will look to defend her US Open Title this year with a legitimate chance at taking home some more silver.
Elina Svitolina – World Ranked #8 Elina is powered through her first game of the Open and with a 12-2 record this year she’s not on anyone’s radar but definitely should be.
