Roland Garros once again plays host to the French Open as the world's best tennis players take to the clay hoping for grand slam glory. The 2015 French Open is without doubt the premier clay court tournament of the year and is one of four grand slams, preceded by the 2015 Australian open and followed by Wimbledon 2015 and the 2015 US Open.
The 2015 French Open begins on May 24th and features men's, women's and double's varieties of tennis. The Women's final is scheduled to take place on Saturday June 6th with the men's final taking place a day later on Sunday June 7th.
Anyone with a casual interest in tennis will know that Rafael Nadal knows his way around Roland Garros, but the Spaniard is quite rightly known as the 'King of Clay' having won a record nine men's singles titles. Nadal clinched a fifth consecutive French Open title with a 3–6, 7–5, 6–2, 6–4 triumph over Novak Djokovic last year, so will enter the 2015 tournament as the defending champion. The Spaniard's latest win saw him take the all-time record from Frenchman Max Decugis which had stood since 1914, while Björn Borg holds the second most titles in the open era with 6 victories ahead of Ivan Lendl with 3.
It's no surprise to see Rafael Nadal firmly at the head of 2015 French Open betting, but he has a number of top tennis stars to contend with in order to land an unprecedented tenth French Open title. Novak Djokovic has made two of the last three finals and should be there or thereabouts again with Stan Wawrinka, Juan Martin del Potro and Andy Murray also thought to have a good chance on the pick of their best form. Roger Federer was a winner at Roland Garros in 2009 and retains plenty of ability, while 2013 finalist David Ferrer saves his best form for clay and could go close once again.
In the women's singles, USA's Chris Evert has won the most titles with 7, while France's Suzanne Lenglen won 6 times in the Amateur era and Steffi Graf holds 6 open era titles. Last year Maria Sharapova claimed her second Roland Garros title, taking her level with her rival Serena Williams and its those two who dominate the betting for the 2015 French Open Title. Other likely contenders include Simona Halep, Victoria Azarenka, Euginie Bouchard, Petra Kvitova, Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwanska.
