French Open 2015 Preview
As you would expect, World Number One Novak Djokovic heads the betting to reign supreme and take the 2015 French Open Men’s Title, with odds currently standing at 4/5.
This may come as a shock to some but Novak has never lifted the coveted La Coupe des Mousquetaires, The Musketeers’ Trophy. But it’s still fair to say that the current world number one would be a pretty safe bet, given his outstanding form.
Current French Open champion Rafael Nadal has dominated the clay surface in recent years and is probably Djokovic’s biggest challenger at 9/4, the Spaniard will be hoping he can prevail for his sixth straight French open title.
British focus will obviously be on Andy Murray who is priced at 8/1, despite disappointing displays for parts of 2014. The Scot has played some of his best tennis on clay, including an impressive victory over Nadal in the Madrid Masters.
Of the chasing pack, David Ferrer stand out as an outsider having finished runner-up two years ago, as well as consistently reaching the quarter finals, so we’re highlighting him as good each-way value at 25/1.
It will not come as a shock to anyone that the women’s betting market is headed by Serena Williams available at 11/4, but don’t be deceived by her number one ranking as the American’s record at Roland Garros isn’t exactly flattering; with only two French Open wins from thirteen attempts.
Which is why we’d recommend by passing the current US and Australian Open champion, because Maria Sharapova proves to be better value. The Reigning French title holder has reached the final in the last three years and is a very tempting 4/1.
Last year’s runner up Simona Halep is also priced at 4/1 despite not yet claiming a major title, but her performances of late have seen her leap frog Sharapova in the world rankings.
