It’s been a crazy year for everyone and sport is no exception. Earlier this month we had the US Open tennis and once again, we tipped winning plays in both the men’s and the women’s draw. We’ll look to continue our great work with the French Open, which kicks off on Sunday, 27th of September. Catch our best plays for both draws below!
Rafael Nadal headlines the big French Open inclusions after opting to miss the US Open. He’ll be seeded second, behind world number #1 Novak Djokovic, and in front of world #3 and recent US Open winner, Dominic Thiem. Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Zverev, Berretini, Monfils, and Shapovalov round out the top 10 seeds.
Nadal, with his beyond ridiculous record at the French Open, leads the charge in the betting market at a short $2.10 quote. If you think that quote is too short, then let us remind you he’s won 12 of the 15 French Open’s he’s played in and one of those losses he had to withdraw from due to injury. Second in the market and not too far behind Rafa is Djokovic ($3.10). The Serb has only won the French once (2016), but is 31-1 this season. Third line of betting is Thiem ($5.50), and you can get $25+ for the rest.
Nadal looked at his dominant best in his first tournament back on clay in the Italian Open, with crushing wins in his first two matches, but lost to Schwartzman in the third round. The French Open is obviously Rafa’s main objective however, so take that loss with a grain of sand. He’ll likely win, and do it easily, but if there’s someone who can challenge, then it looks to be Thiem, who is coming off his maiden GS title win at the US Open and who is a 2x runner up to Rafa at the French Open.
World number #2 Simona Halep headlines the inclusions from the women’s draw and has been named as the #1 seed due to Naomi Osaka’s absence. Serena Williams is seeded sixth and will continue her attempt to become the all-time leader in GS wins. The other top five seeds are Ka. Pliskova (2), Svitolina (3), Kenin (4), Bertens (5). Rounding out the top 10 are Bencic, Kvitova, Sabalenka, Konta.
The women’s GS market are always an open playing field and this year’s French Open is no different. Last year’s winner in Ash Barty is out, so leading the betting market is 2018 winner, Simona Halep ($3.75). The second line of betting sees Garbine Muguruza come in at $6.50, and you can get double figures or better about the rest.
Halep is the deserving favourite when you consider she’s been in three of the past six finals and won it once, but her odds are just too short for us to entice. One of the more interesting shouts is Serena Williams at $13. She’s made the final in three of the past seven years and has won twice during that span (3x overall). Another around the same quote is Elina Svitolina ($13), who broke through in the Grand Slam side of things with two semi-final appearances last season. We love both Williams and Svitolina’s odds, so are happy to take them in the double chance market at Sportsbet.
