The French Open kick-starts the summer of sport on Sunday and more than likely in two weeks time, history will be made. Either Novak Djokovic will complete the first single season Grand Slam since 1968 or Rafael Nadal will continue his domination on clay and overtake Bjorn Borg’s record of six French open titles. This is reflected in the odds in the outright winner market showing these two as favourites. Nadal’s history of clay domination and recent victories over Djokovic in the Rome and Monte Carlo finals means that he is clear favourite and best priced at Totesport with odds of 1.73. Also, Djokovic has never reached the final of the French Open. Betfair have the best odds for Djokovic to end this duck and lift the French Open title with odds of 4.2.
For all the patriots our there, Andy Murray isn’t looking like putting up a serious challenge. He has been struggling with a back injury recently and has even been urged by Boris Becker to sit out this tournament in an attempt to be fully fit for Wimbledon. This and Murray’s lack of potency on the clay has meant that he has been priced at 40s with Betfair. However, it could be worth a punt in case he goes on a decent run his odds should fall significantly creating an opportunity to lock in a profit.
In the women’s French Open, Serena Williams is the favourite to win the title with best odds of 3.6 at Boylesports. Second favourite is Victoria Arazenka with best odds of 5 with Bodog. However according to some, Maria Sharapova’s recent form makes her also a strong favourite and could be a good bet to back at 9s with Boylesports to complete her career Grand Slam.
