The US Open starts Monday, and these are the top favorites to win the Women’s Singles.

Serena Williams 7/4
Maria Sharapova 11/2
Simona Halep 7/1
Victoria Azarenka 8/1

Serena Williams will start her US Open defence against American youngster Taylor Townsend in the tie of the first round.

Number one seed Williams, who has won the tournament five times before, will take on the highly rated teenager before potentially facing Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in the semi-finals.

Five-time champion Federer faces Marinko Matosevic in the first round, and will avoid any top seeds until at least the quarter-finals, when he could face Grigor Dimitrov.

Murray meanwhile is in a quarter with World No 1 Novak Djokovic and French star Jo Wilfried Tsonga.
