The U.S. Open, which saw a proper start on Monday, is the last stop of the tennis world’s 2014 Grand Slam tournaments, following the Australian Open, the French Open, and Wimbledon. For many fans, it will be the final opportunity to watch the heavy hitters until January, and it begins the unofficial hibernation season of competitive tennis, although there are smaller tournaments running throughout the fall.

While the best players in the world are a known quantity by this point in the season, the favorites for each event can shift without notice. Take Rafael Nadal, last year’s champion, for example: He’s sitting out this iteration with a wrist injury, even though he would’ve been a lock for one of the final rounds had he played. With that in mind, and with information courtesy of Bovada, here are the 5 players with the best odds to take home the title.
