US Open 2023: The fourth new Grand Slam winner in a row?

You most likely observed that we obtained a model new grand slam winner within the final three seasons of the US Open.

2020 Dominic Thiem – 2021 Daniil Medvedev – 2022 Carlos Alcaraz

And if you happen to look carefully you will note that Del Potro in 2009, Murray in 2012, and Cilic in 2014 scored their first massive title in New York. Additionally, Stan Wawrinka gained the US Open in 2016 (his third and final Grand Slam trophy) and disrupted the Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal dominance of the final twenty seasons.

In 20 years (from 2004), Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon have been gained simply two instances by somebody apart from above talked about nice trio.

Australian Open: 2005 Safin – 2014 Wawrinka
French Open: 2004 Gauido – 2015 Wawrinka
Wimbledon: 2013 & 2016 Murray

US Open is totally different. Seven instances out of 19 seasons we noticed somebody not named Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal holding the trophy.

US Open: 2009 del Potro – 2012 Murray – 2014 Cilic – 2016 Wawrinka – 2020 Thiem – 2021 Medvedev – 2022 Alcaraz

The final three seasons might be the results of Djokovic’s absence, or Federer and Nadal’s deteriorating well being. However seeing seven totally different gamers profitable within the final 19 years tells a special story.

Is it a coincidence?

Fairly the opposite, the US Open, the final grand slam of the season is the proper probability to win your first Grand Slam.

Older gamers are normally extra drained in September than in January or Could. Accidents take out some rivals off the sphere. Subsequently, the possibility of any gifted participant profitable his first Grand Slam in New York is larger than in Melbourne, Paris or London.

Would it not be totally different this 12 months?

Does it imply that Tsitsipas, Rune, Sinner, Fritz or Ruud will win it this 12 months? It’s undoubtedly potential however I might not wager on it.

This 12 months we are going to see Djokovic again at Flushing Meadows after two years (in 2020 he was disqualified within the quarterfinals, in 2021 and 2022 he didn’t take part resulting from lacking covid vaccination).

Djokovic enjoying on a lowered schedule confirmed massive kind in any respect three grand slams (wins at Melbourne and Paris, finalist at Wimbledon) to date. Carlos Alcaraz can be there with none stress to show how good he’s as he already has two Grand Slam titles (US Open 2022 & Wimbledon 2023) in his pocket.

Daniil Medvedev is wanting good, specializing in delivering the promise from 2021 that he’ll win extra.

Meaning I might go along with a type of three gamers (most likely Alcaraz) this 12 months and never depend on the brand new identify.

What do you suppose?
