The first round of the US Open on the men’s singles side was upset-heavy as several top seeds went down.
On Monday, there were five moneyline upsets – four by underdogs priced between +240 and +275; and Roger Federer lost his first set to Sumit Nagal, a +2800 underdog.
Tuesday saw 11 moneyline upsets, including:
- Andrey Rublev (+150) over Stefanos Tstisipas
- Tennys Sandgren (+200) over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
- Pablo Andujar-Alba (+350) over Kyle Edmund
- Cedrik-Marcel Stebe (+400) over Filip Krajinovic
- Thomas Fabbiano (+400) over Dominic Thiem
- Vasik Pospisil (+500) over Karen Khachanov
- Mikhail Kukushkin (+700) over Roberto Bautista Agut
Will betting underdogs continue to thrive on the blue courts of Flushing Meadows, or will favorites get back to form in the second round?
