So here are your french open tennis betting tips. The second grand slam of the year is quickly approaching The French Open. This time around Novak is the unexpected favourite to win the tournament at odds of 2.55 due to his favourable draw however the French Open is the only major Djokovic is yet to win. The Serbian’s main threat is eight time winner Rafael Nadal who is 2nd favourite and best priced at 2.88.
In 2013 Nadal beat fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in the final in straight sets to win the French Open, this will not be the case this year with the two Spaniards being drawn in the same quarter which is not the first of Nadal’s problems. Rafa is likely to face Nicolas Almagro in the 3rd round who has already beat him this year. Then as I have already mentioned the eight time champion would probably face Ferrer or Dimitrov in the 4th round neither of which would be an easy match up.
The 2nd quarter of the draw features Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. Wawrinka is fancied by many despite loses against Thiem and Haas on clay in recent weeks. Coachless Andy Murray has a poor record on clay for his standards but his recent performance against Nadal on clay was very encouraging despite losing the match. Unfortunately Murray is unlikely to challenge for the title however the world number three Wawrinka can cause problems to any opponent on his day and I would expect him to face Nadal in the semi-final.
Onto the 3rd and arguably the easiest of the quarters. Former French Open winner Roger Federer is favourite to win the quarter at odds of 2.25 with Berdych second favourite at odds of 3/1. Ernest Gulbis is certainly capable of coursing Federer a problem or two, Federer did lose his last clay court match against Jeremy Chardy. Both Berdych and Federer are unlikely to challenge for the title as they prefer playing on quicker surfaces.
The final quarter features the world number two Novak Djokovic who is favourite to win his first French Open title as I have already mentioned. He is as short as 1.25 to win his quarter with no huge threat. Kei Nishikori is in the 4th quarter and has performed well recently but his fitness is questionable and his prices seems short considering his clay court record prior to this season. Milos Raonic is another player to have played well on clay recently, the Canadian reached the semi-final in Rome before losing to Djokovic, he did manage to take a set off the Serbian. However I can only see on played winning this quarter and that is Djokovic.
So what is the recommended bet? Boylesports are offering cashback as a free bet on outright selections if Rafael Nadal wins the French Open which is a brilliant offer. So the bet I recommended is Novak Djokovic to win the French Open. He certainly has the favourable draw and should have few problems on his way to reaching the semi-final. He comes into this tournament full of confidence after winning in Rome recently where he beat Nadal in the final.
