French Open Tennis Odds
The French Open is one of the four Grand Slams of the year and represents the end of the tennis clay court season. It is the only one of the Grand Slam tournaments played on clay, which gives punters something different to think about when looking into the French Open tennis odds. The French Open is played at Roland Garros in Paris and lasts for two weeks, putting strong physical demands on the body.
Like the Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon, all of the games involving men are played over five sets, while women’s matches are all best of three. These match lengths also extend the tennis betting opportunities to more than just which player will win a particular match. French Open tennis odds are available on how many sets a match will have, the total number of games and whether a player will win after losing the first set.
Focus on previous winners in men’s French Open tennis odds
Rafael Nadal odds will be particularly popular in the French Open tennis odds based on his remarkable record in the tournament. Nadal won the event four times in succession between 2005 and 2008 and still seems to be young and fit enough to add to his tally. Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Juan Martin Del Potro will be among the players looking to lay down a strong challenge to Nadal at Roland Garros.
Women’s French Open winner tougher to call
With no player currently dominating the female tennis scene, there is no obvious winner in the women’s French Open tennis odds. The Williams sisters have only ever won the French Open once between them, while Kim Clijsters seems to be consistently battling injury. Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova odds could be worth considering, while Na Li will be returning to defend her title.
