French Open Tennis Championships : May 24th - June 7th 2015
The second Tennis Grand Slam event of 2015 takes place at the famous Roland Garros Stadium in Paris. All eyes will be on the Spanish player Rafael Nadal once again in the Men's Singles as he attempts to win his ninth French title in the last ten years. It’s a truly remarkable record and he looks unbeatable on theses outdoor clay courts.
In the Women's event Serena Williams is the defending champion after defeating Maria Sharapova in 2013 who herself had won the title just twelve months previous.
The French Open Tennis Championships is one of the country’s biggest sporting events of the year with over 400,000 spectators visiting Roland Garros over the 15 days of action and just under 15,000 watched the 2013 Final between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer plus millions more worldwide on the TV.
French Open Betting Guide
With Rafael Nadal being so dominant in this event over the last few years, it’s likely he will start out as the favourite in the outright betting in the Men's Singles for the 2015 French Open. Two players who will push him all the way are Novac Djokovic and Andy Murray, currently the world’s number 1 & 2. Surprisingly neither have performed that well in this tournament in the past and will be out to make amends in 2015. The Ladies Singles title will be a much more open contest with several players fancying their chances this year.
Apart from the outright market there are plenty of other betting opportunities during the two weeks of tennis. Match betting is very popular in the early rounds and punters will be seeking out any value in games concerning some of the lesser lights that the bookmakers may not know too much about, bets on the match scores can also be profitable. As the tournament reaches its climax those bookies will be offering several more markets to bet on and we will have them all covered here once they become available.
