Flushing Meadows plays host to the final Grand Slam of the year as the world’s best players prepare to serve up a fortnight of thrilling tennis.

If you cast your mind back to 12 months ago, you’ll remember it was at the US Open where Emma Raducanu burst onto the scene as the Brit teen battled through the qualifiers all the way to a famous victory in the final.

A couple of players at the opposite end of their careers have dominated the build up to this year’s tournament; Serena Williams has indicated she plans to retire afterwards while Novak Djokovic is out due to his COVID-19 vaccination status.

Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Nick Kyrgios are also available at single-digit prices.

World number one Iga Swiatek tops the market thanks to her fine form in this calendar year, although she followed up her second French Open triumph by crashing out of Wimbledon in round three as her 37-match winning streak came to an end.
