Notes about the Experts’ Analysis
- Carlos Alcaraz is in the right state of mind, and has matured physically enough to win his first Grand Slam tournament. Additionally, he has won two Masters 1000s this year, including on hard court in Miami, and has experience beating Rafael Nadal.
- Rafael Nadal is the expert at winning Grand Slams and without Djokovic in the way, it will be much easier for him to win the title. On the other hand, he has a bright spot in the picture that will allow him to regain his physical form.
- Simona Halep’s comeback in Toronto was impressive. In this WTA 1000 she beat both Jessica Pegula and Coco Gauff. It should not be forgotten that she has a record of 19 wins versus 2 losses since Roland Garros.
- Jessica Pegula, Caroline Garcia and Iga Swiatek are other favorites for the experts. However, they haven’t been as consistent. In any case, they are the strongest rivals Simona Halep has at the moment and could be crowned in the Big Apple.
