French Open Final Betting Tips

Women’s Final

Iga Swiatek vs Sofia Kenin

Sunday 12am AEDT

Like it always seems to be, the women’s draw had upset after upset after upset in France. The top half of the draw was especially unpredictable, with only one seeded player (Elina Svitolina #3) making it to the quarter finals. The bottom half of the draw was a little less surprising for the most part, although two unseeded players still made it through to the quarters.

The first of the two women to book their place in the final was young gun, Iga Swiatek. The 19-year-old Pole has had a breakthrough tournament where she’s looked impossible to beat at times. She’s dropped just 23 games combined for the tournament and caused one of the great upsets in the fourth round when she smashed #1 seed Simona Halep in two quick sets (6-1, 6-2).

The other woman to make it through to the French Open final is young American, Sofia Kenin. The 21-year-old Australian Open champion has enjoyed a fantastic fortnight on the clay where she’s knocked off a couple of very talented players en route to the final. The most impressive of her wins came against Petra Kvitova in the semi’s (6-4, 7-5), which has given her the chance to win 2/3 Grand Slams this season.

Kenin has certainly put together a fantastic six matches to make the final, but her upcoming opponent in Swiatek has been utterly dominant. That said, Swiatek has only had to face one top tier player to date (Halep), so her form line could be a little deceiving. She certainly deserves to be the favourites, but Kenin has the experience in these conditions and will offer a very tough challenge. All things considered; we’re expecting a tight match that should lead to the total games going over the 21.5 line.


Men’s Final

Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal

Monday, 12am AEDT

There has been plenty of upsets in the men’s draw at Roland Garros over the past fortnight, but the two big dogs in Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic weren’t part of the carnage. The #1 and #2 seeds have been able to navigate their way through the tricky conditions to reach yet another Grand Slam final and it should be a cracker.

Rafael Nadal was the first to win their way through to the final, which is probably the most predictable thing that’s happened in the whole of 2020. The 12x French Open champion has looked shaky at times, particularly in his last two matches, but he’s still been able to navigate his way through the draw to reach the final without dropping a set.

It’s no surprise to see Novak Djokovic make another Grand Slam final, particularly when you consider his form this season. He’s arguably in the best shape of his life and is still yet to lose a match in 2020 other than that DQ in the US Open. The Joker did find himself in a duel against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi’s, but he was able to put his foot on the gas in the fifth set to run away with the match.

Both players have been fantastic all tournament long and are the deserving finalists. Djokovic has the edge over Nadal in their overall H2H count (29-26) and H2H count in finals (15-11), but Nadal has had him covered comfortably when they’ve met at Roland Garros (6-1). It’s hard to bet against the Joker considering his impeccable 2020 record, but it’s even harder to bet against Nadal on the clay at RG. It should be a tight affair, but we have to give the nod to the 12x champ in this one.
