2021 French Open Futures Preview

2021 French Open Futures Betting Tips

Men’s Outright

As the years go by, we continue to wait for the big 3 to drop off on the surfaces they have dominated throughout their career, but Rafael Nadal’s decline on the clay in Paris looks lightyears away from transpiring. The 13-time Roland-Garros champ comes into this year’s tournament with a 100-2 W/L record, which is just ridiculous. He will start as the odds-on favourite to take it out again and has had the perfect build up to do so. In terms of the other main fancies, Alex Zverev is on the second line of betting at around $5 due to his fantastic form of late, while Novak Djokovic is the third favourite at $6. All in all, you can try and make as good a case for the rest of the field, but betting against Rafael Nadal at the French Open is just impossible to do in our opinion.

Women’s Outright

In the women’s draw we have one of the shortest favourites for a Grand Slam in recent memory with last year’s champ in Iga Swiatek starting at around $3.50 to make it back-to-back. The Pole is in fantastic touch after her dominant title run at the Italian Open, but there haven’t been back-to-back French Open titles won in the women’s draw since Justine Henin won three in a throw from 2005-07 and it’s unfair to expect a 19-year-old Swiatek to defend her title now that she’s the hunted. Instead, we’re loving the value of Ash Barty to replicate her winning run at Roland-Garros in 2019, which is the Aussies only Grand Slam title to date. Barty is in fantastic form on the clay and gets a favourable draw that should give her every chance of making another deep run.

Men’s Quarter 1 Winner

We’re chasing some big value in the Men’s Quarter 1 Outright market as we look to oppose 18-time Grand Slam champ and one-time French Open champ, Novak Djokovic. The Joker has been in solid enough form in the lead-in tournaments, but clay is obviously his least-favourite surface and $1.40 is far too short for him here considering he’s only won his quarter in two of the past four years. In saying that, there aren’t too many guys in his quarter that can trouble him, but one that can do so is Matteo Berrettini. The 25-year-old is ranked #9 in the world and is entering the prime of his career and also plays his best tennis on clay. Berrettini had some good results in the lead up and is over the odds to win his quarter.

Women’s Quarter 4 Winner

One of the most open markets in the women’s draw this year is the Quarter 4 Winner, with Naomi Osaka the favourite to salute at $3.50. You’d have to be crazy to take Osaka at those odds in our opinion, as clay is by far her worst surface and she’s never even advanced past the third round at Roland-Garros. Instead, we love the price of bolter Paul Badosa to win the quarter at around $5. The 23-year-old Spaniard jumped onto the Grand Slam scene with a fourth round appearance here last year and has been in blistering form in the lead up, collecting a title in Serbia without dropping a set and making it to the semi-finals in Madrid where she was defeated by world #1, Ash Barty.
