Odds To Win The 2019 French Open

French Open Tennis Odds May 22, 2019

It feels like a lifetime since the focus has been on the sport of tennis with the Australian Open wrapping up back in January. But the spotlight will be back on the court, this time on clay for the 2019 French Open with Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep at the top of the oddsboard to claim the titles.

This will be the first time in three years that the King of Clay is listed as the plus-money favorite at +105 as he angles for his 12th French Open championship. Halep will try to be the first woman to win back-to-back French Open titles since Justine Henin accomplished the feat back in 2007.


Why Shouldn’t We Bet The House On Nadal?

I can try to come up with a compelling argument about how Nadal is 32 years old or that injuries could creep in but that would be selling him short. The man has won 11 French Open titles and did that just over the last 14 years. He owns a 58-8 SU record on a clay surface and has only lost twice in best-of-five matches at Roland Garros. SHEESH!

Nadal has won back-to-back French Open titles (withdrew in 2016) and lost in the quarterfinals in 2015 to Novak Djokovic. The Joker holds the distinction of being one of two men to beat Nadal at the French Open but holds an all-time 1-6 SU record against the Spaniard at Roland Garros and a 7-17 SU record in 24 matches on clay.

The only reason I would suggest to wager on Djokovic (+225) to win the major is because Nadal could get hurt and withdraw from the tournament. I’m willing to roll the dice on that factor and overlook that risk. It’s also worth mentioning that Nadal and Djokovic faced each other at the Italian Open final less than a week ago on clay and Nadal won two sets to one, but if Rafa pulls out, this is Djokovic’s tourney to lose.

Here is the full list of odds to win the 2019 French Open on the men’s side:

Your Guess Is As Good As Mine For The Women’s Tourney

Capping the women’s side of this tournament has been incredibly difficult, even for the most seasoned bettor. In the past 10 years, eight different players have won it all, with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova picking up the hardware twice.

This is why it’s hard to endorse reigning women’s champion Simona Halep, who is currently being offered at +400. The 27-year-old has made it to three French Open finals since 2014 and finally broke through last year with a comeback win over Sloane Stephens. Coming into the tourney, she lost in the Round of 32 at the Italian Open to Marketa Vondrusova and in her last major, at the Australian Open, she was ousted in the quarterfinals by Caroline Wozniacki. It is worth noting that she was the tournament favorite last year at +550 and went on to win it all.

This is why I think it’s a crapshoot to pick a winner but if I had to pick a couple of contenders with decent value, I would lean to Karolina Pliskova at +1200 or Naomi Osaka at +1100. Pliskova has the momentum coming into this tournament by winning the Italian Open and made the semifinals of the French Open in 2017.

Osaka is the world’s No. 1-ranked women’s tennis player and is the reigning U.S. and Australian Open champion. Those tournaments were obviously on hard surface but to get arguably the best player in the world at those odds makes the decision to back her very easy.

Last year, I was very bullish on Serena Williams to win it all but I think we’ve seen the last of her competing on the Grand Slam stage. This isn’t to say she can’t go deep in the tournament but I think she has had such a physical challenge to push through a tournament at 37 years old that the risk of her losing or pulling out due to injury isn’t worth it at +1200.
