The 2021 event is over, but attention is already focusing on 2022, when the action will take place from May 22 until June 5, 2022.

The French Open begins on May 22, and the finals of the event will take place on June 4 & 5.

The action takes place at the Stade Roland Garros which is in the west of Paris.

French Open betting odds

Even though he opted not to travel to New York for the US Open, Rafael Nadal is the clear favourite when it comes to the tennis odds for his favourite tournament, the French Open.

Nadal is the best clay court player and has won at Roland Garros an amazing 12 times during his career, including in each of the last three years, so it is understandable why there is a top price of 5/6 with Paddy Power for him to win the title yet again.

A disaster at the US Open, where he was disqualified after accidentally hitting a lines-woman with a ball, has not put the bookmakers off Novak Djokovic and he is joint-second favourite, with the Serbian world number one available to back at 3/1 with Paddy Power this year.

Women’s French Open Odds 2020

In the women’s draw, the favourite is Simona Halep, who has reached the final in two of the last three years, with the Romanian available to back at a top price of 7/2 with 888sport.

With the defending champion, Ash Barty, opting not to play the other leading contenders for the crown include Kiki Bertens (10/1 with Boylesports) and US Open winner Naomi Osaka (12/1 with Betfred).

It is always impossible to discount Serena Williams, too, with the American still chasing down her 24th Grand Slam singles title – she is at 15/1 with 888sport to triumph.

The tournament is widely televised due to it’s popularity, which is why there so many chances to win more for your money, just make sure you look out for the best free bets for French Open 2020, to really increase your chances.

French Open FAQs

You may think you can win big with your French Open betting but it’s nothing compared to the players. The winners of both the Men’s and Women’s Singles get an eye watering €2,300,000!
If you want to make the most of the French Open final odds make sure to back a player who can cope with the surroundings of Court Philippe Chatrier.
The French Open is the only Grand Slam that takes place on clay courts. The courts at Roland Garros play pretty slowly and the balls bounce fairly highly which takes away much of the advantage of big hitters and power servers.
Unlike Wimbledon, players at Roland Garros are allowed to wear multiple colours but the event organisers have still be known to reject outfits. They did this in 2018 when Serena Williams tried to wear a catsuit.
If you’re following the French Open tennis live scores or watching the French Open live streaming you may wonder why the commentators refer to the tournament as Roland Garros. That’s because construction of the much needed tennis stadium in the 1920s was predicated on it being named after a World War 1 hero and it was decided to name it after Garros, a pioneering aviator and fighter pilot who died after being shot down in 1918.
