It is fair to say that 2022 has been a stellar year for men’s tennis and the next 12 months promise to continue in the same vein.
This year’s Grand Slams have been dominated by the big guns, with Rafael Nadal (Australian Open & French Open) and Novak Djokovic (Wimbledon) mopping up the titles.
With the Serbian expected to miss the upcoming US Open, Nadal is listed amongst the leading contenders with the bookmakers to win the title for the fifth time.
However, most new betting sites rate reigning champion Daniil Medvedev as the player most likely to take advantage of Djokovic’s probable absence.
The Russian defeated Djokovic in straight sets last year and could be tough to stop in his quest to become the first man since Roger Federer (2008) to go back-to-back at the US Open.
Read on as we look at the main tournaments scheduled to take place in men’s tennis over the next 12 months before assessing which players will get their hands on silverware in the big events.

2022/23 Men’s Tennis Preview
As we highlighted earlier, Medvedev and Nadal are amongst the favourites to emerge victorious at the 2022 US Open in New York.
However, if you are unfamiliar with betting on tennis, it is worth noting that the tournament has produced some surprise results in recent years.
Nick Kyrgios will undoubtedly a popular pick to go all the way at the US Open, although his suspect temperament could hinder his hopes.
Carlos Alcaraz may be worth an interest after enjoying a stellar year that has seen him win 44 of his 53 matches to date.
The Spaniard has won four titles during that period and has his sights set firmly on climbing higher than his current world ranking of number four.
Looking further ahead, Djokovic looks a good bet to clinch the seventh Paris Masters title of his career and third in the past four seasons.
Djokovic defeated Medvedev in three sets in the 2021 final and will be eager to end the current campaign with a flourish.
The 35-year-old will also be keen to make his mark at season-ending ATP Finals, although the tournament has been a graveyard for favourites in recent years.
Djokovic was the last of the established big guns to win the event in 2015 and another surprise result could be on the cards this time around.
The highlight of schedule in the early part of 2023 is unquestionably the Australian Open, and picking a winner is no easy task.
Djokovic may be denied the chance to win the title for the 10th time, opening the door for someone new to get their name on the roll of honour.
With a partisan home crowd behind him, this could be the ideal opportunity for Kyrgios to demonstrate he has the ability to win a Grand Slam.
The French Open and Wimbledon are other highlights during spring and summer next year, and will probably be dominated by the world’s top players.
Nadal has won 14 French Open titles during his illustrious career and remains the man to beat on the clay courts at Roland Garros.
Djokovic has been unstoppable at Wimbledon in recent years, winning the title on four successive occasions to make it seven in his career overall.
