Reddit user, ‘u/mbmccurdy’ has calculated each participant’s probability of winning the 2019 US Open, throwing some surprise results. According to the findings, third seed Roger Federer has a higher chance of winning the Grand Slam than second seed Rafael Nadal. Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, holds the top spot with the highest probability of wrapping up his season with another title win.
