The French Open begins on Sunday 24 May and Tennis fans can net themselves a brilliant prize with Betfair Sportsbook during the two-week tournament.

Betfair have two tickets for this year's Wimbledon Men's final up for grabs - complete with overnight accommodation on Sunday July 12 - for those customers who complete their Tennis betting with the firm and the upcoming French Open gives them plenty of chances to get their entries in.

The French Open runs up until the final on Sunday 7 June, giving Tennis bettors up to 15 chances to gain entries to the competition for Wimbledon tickets.

After his quarter-final defeat to Stan Wawrinka in the Italian Open, Rafael Nadal will not be within the top four seeds for a Grand Slam for the first time since 2005.

The Spaniard - who has won nine French Open titles in the last 10 years - has dropped to world number seven, having struggled for form following a wrist injury and appendectomy last season.

Despite the fact he could be facing a much tougher draw now, Nadal is still currently second-favourite at 5/2 at Betfair to reclaim his clay court title. Meanwhile, 2014 runner-up Novak Djokovic is the 5/6 favourite to finally record a maiden French Open win.

British interest will surely rest with two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray at 8/1, who put together a run of 10 consecutive wins before pulling out of the Italian Open with fatigue.

Over in the Women's draw, world number one Serena Williams was another to withdraw from the Italian Open in Rome. However, the elbow injury she suffered prior to her third round match doesn't prevent her from being named the 11/4 favourite at Betfair to win a third French Open crown.

Should the 2002 and 2013 champion struggle to shake off the injury, last year's winner Maria Sharapova (4/1) and runner-up Simona Helep (5/1) will be looking to feature in the final once again.
