About The French Open
French Open tennis means Roland Garros Stadium, a Grand Slam opportunity for the WTA women and ATP men, a clay court, and of course ... a win by Rafael Nadal. Just kidding with that last part, but only partially so. From 2005 through 2012 Nadal won an incredible 7 times, solidifying his title as The King of Clay. The French Open is the top clay court tennis tournament played anywhere in the world, and is also the second of the four yearly grand slam tournaments, the other three being the Australian Open, U.S. Open and Wimbledon. Nadal owns the record for the most men's French Open titles in the Open Era, and any discussion of French Open odds begin and end with the charismatic Spaniard.
The tournament puts an end to the spring up clay-court season, and is the only grand slam opportunity on that surface. Widely regarded as the most physically demanding tennis tournament in the world because of its slow playing surface and five set men's single matches with no tiebreak in the final set, the French Open is a must-see for diehard tennis fans every year. On the women's side of the net, during the same time that Nadal was close to perfect, there were six different women's champions. French Open odds every year reflect this fact, providing for some long odds opportunities for players who get hot going into the event. Champions Francesca Schiavone and Na Li from 2011 and 2012 are two great examples.
From 2007 through 2012 no woman repeated, so each year Las Vegas odds on French Open female tennis pros usually show a group of 5 to 7 of the top ranked WTA players with roughly the same chance at winning. The year-in, year-out consistency of Nadal at Roland Garros is equally matched by the multiple women's players who have legitimate shots at winning the Suzanne Lenglen Cup. The tournament is held over a two week period in late May and early June in Paris, France with the Vegas odds on French Open champions always providing value for the savvy tennis bettor.
