2017 French Open Betting Tips
The clay of Paris has been home to some of the greatest games in recent times with Rafael Nadal dominating the tournament for over a decade. This year he’ll go into the competition looking to secure an incredible 10th title. But will he do it? Here’s a look at our favourites for the French Open.
After a fantastic 2016, Andy Murray goes into the French Open as World Number One but has been struggling for form of late.
He reached the Final last year but has never gone on to win it but has securely made his way through the First Round already. His win against Andrey Kuznetsov was comfortable and he looks to be getting a bit of swagger after suffering from the flu and a pour clay season so far.
Ladbrokes have him priced at 11/1 following that win, but his shaky 2017 could see people put off.
Rafael Nadal’s prowess in the French Open is perfectly summed up by his nickname, the ‘King of Clay’ and it’s hard to look past him with odds of 4/5 at William Hill.
The World Number Four has picked up nine French Open titles during his career and is finally back to his best after a horrific run of injuries. He’s a clear favourite for the crown after an incredible start to the year, picking up titles in Rome, Madrid, and Barcelona.
Talk of a 10th French Open title is being hushed in his own camp, but it’s very likely he’ll be there or thereabouts come the Final on June 11.
Stan Wawrinka has already cruised into the Second Round with the Swiss man showing some fantastic form. His straight sets win over Jozef Kovalik has placed him at third favourite for the tournament at 10/1 with most bookmakers and we wouldn’t mind having a punt on this one.
He won the title back in 2015, beating Novak Djokovic in the Final and has built a reputation as being one of the best on clay. The rest of 2017 has been mixed for Wawrinka, with early exits in Rome and Monte Carlo, while on the ATP circuit he’s lost a third of his matches.
If he can show why he has a reputation on the clay though, he could do something.
Novak Djokovic will be spending his 2017 trying to regain that World Number One spot and a win at the French Open will go a long way to doing so. He’s priced at 4/1 with Paddy Power for this one and he eased into the Second Round, defeating Marcel Granollers in straight sets.
The Serbian secured his first title at Roland Garros last year and it’s the only title he’s failed to win more than once. Results over recent months highlights he could be returning to his best, with new coach Andre Agassi giving him new-found confidence.
You can never right of Djokovic and what we could see is the world’s best going head-to-head at the start of a magnificent summer for tennis.
