The most challenging court?
Tennis is back with the French Open getting underway in September! Will Roland Garros once again be dominated by the Rafael Nadal or will there be a surprise on the horizon on this tricky court?
The delayed French Open is one of the four major tennis tournaments across the 12-month calendar and is typically played in the months of May and June. Often regarded as one of the toughest courts in world tennis, the clay court within Paris offers a challenging surface with only the elite players looking to succeed on it.
Nadal set to dominate once again?
After recent years the men’s game has been dominated by Spaniard Nadal having won the previous three opens. His win over Dominic Thiem in 2019 was his 12th title in Paris as he looks for number 13 which could be on the horizon. The women’s game saw Australian Ashleigh Barty defeat Marketa Vondrousova in 2019 but this has posed a much more difficult guessing game with a different winner coming from the last seven years- which is great for the punters!
French Open Betting Offers
Once again with punters, huge events such as the French Open will no doubt see a submerge of tennis betting offers across all bookmakers. These typically will be involved across all welcome offers and could see enhanced welcome odds in favour of Nadal as we approach the opening game. Bet365 also offer a up to 70% tennis accumulator bonus across the annual year which is hugely popular across gamblers.
The Bet365 offer allows 14+ accumulators to have a 70% bonus on these winners and even a 5% bonus on doubles which could prove popular for a lot of tennis supporters. This could prove even more favourable across the calendar year as this also applies to all ATP and WTA tours. Especially when a smaller tournament could see many bankers within the space of a tournament, these 365 offers could once again seem to be a great option to get some profit back!
Other offers with Unibet and Paddy Power also offer annual punts across all Grand Slams including an impressive selection of markets and offers. With these great offers, free-streaming is usually provided and with the French Open most likely being shown across ITV once again in the UK, the streaming service will allow you to keep an eye on those lower-card matches.
Available to everyone
With £1 usually the standard to be staked in order to watch these matches and with no supporters looking likely to be in attendance at the famous Roland Garros, this could prove to be a winner with all bookmakers when the French Open gets underway.
French Open Betting Tips
As we look towards a couple of tips ahead of the French Open, the ladies game always looks to be an interesting one. Even historically, these athletes are shown to be more unpredictable since the days of the Williams sisters and Maria Sharapova who once single -handedly dominated the women’s game.
The amount of depth and talent which has inputted into the winner’s game over the last few years has indeed made it a very difficult competition to predict. There could be around up to 20 potential candidates for the title this year and here is some of our picks:
Simona Halep is always a solid punt across the majors as most bookmakers look to provide odds of 5/1 – in particular, BetVictor (best odds at time of writing). With the world number two looking the favourite at the moment. Betfred are also providing odds of 25/1 for the world number four ranked, Sofia Kenin. The 21-year old has rocketed up the rankings over the recent months following her 2020 Australian Open win.
A final tip could see current world number one Ashleigh Barty currently looking as second favourite with William Hill at 9/1. Her win last year could see her rise on the top scene straight away once again which is why she could prove to be an excellent price.
For the mens game, French Open tips will always look to favour Nadal on clay but his price of EVS at Betfred could look to be profitable for those who prefer the higher stakes. To favour the British an extraordinary punt on Andy Murray’s return could see odds of 150/1 being provided by Unibet when a couple of pennies could be worth the risk on an Each way betting format. As could the ever-improving Austrian, Thiem look to finally get a winner under his belt after never winning a grand-slam.
The 26-year old although has reached three finals, including two within the last couple of French Open’s. Could 2020 be his year and could be finally bring back the gold with odds of 4/1 being optimised with SportPesa once again.
A game of unpredictability
The French Open this time round will no doubt cast a few more armchair supporters to get involved with the game, as it’s being shown on TV and advertised with a number of bookmakers. It could even prove to be a solid replacement for this year’s Wimbledon which was unfortunately cancelled, but could we even see a surprise upon the horizon with a number of players being out of action for a series of months.
