Latest French Open Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions here
The 2017 French Open gets underway today, as the bid to clinch the second Grand Slam of the year is getting more and more interesting. Let us take a look at some of the contenders in the men’s and women’s section with the Free French Open betting tips & odds for 2017 mentioned below as we bring you the latest action from Roland-Garros.
2017 has been an interesting year in the world of tennis. Roger Federer once again made history by winning his 18th Grand Slam, at the age of 35. Unfortunately for tennis fans in general and French Open followers in particular, Federer will not feature in this 2017 edition of the tournament to allow him rest for the Wimbledon.
Federer’s nemesis Rafael Nadal returned to the spotlight after struggling a lot with his form for the last couple of years. And more importantly, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray were humbled by the upcoming stars on the tour.

Nadal to win
All of this is only building up to the remainder of the season. The 2017 French Open is just a week away, with the King of Clay all set to dominate in Paris once again. His duels with Federer in the beginning of the season only made him stronger for the upcoming matches.
Nadal has already won three tournaments on clay consecutively – Monte-Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open and Madrid Open. Soaring extremely high on momentum and confidence, this couldn’t have come at a better time for the Spaniard. With Djokovic struggling with his form and clay not being Federer’s strong suit, it will be hard to imagine someone else stealing Nadal’s crown and our French Open betting tips could barely suggest someone else.
No surprises then that the men’s French Open odds point in favour of Nadal being an overwhelming favourite to win the title.
However, Dominic Thiem is one player who has shown a great deal of promise this season. The young Austrian has played Nadal in the finals in Barcelona and Madrid, and he is going to be the player to look out for. Novak Djokovic is the French Open defending champion, but it is quite unlikely that he will be able to defend his title.
That said, he is coming off a much improved performance at the Rome Masters after he did well to get to the semi-final of the Madrid Open where he was finally knocked out by Nadal. He then made it to the final of the Italian Open before he ended a surprising second to Alexander Zverev in the title-decider.
Can Djokovic continue that run in the French Open?
Moving on to women’s half, there hasn’t been a great deal of consistency on this side. With Serena Williams set to miss the remainder of the season, it is a level playing field. Moreover, Maria Sharapova’s return to the fold could have added a great deal of intensity and intrigue to the WTA Tour but she has not been awarded a wild-card by the French Open organisers.
The Russian has won the French Open twice, the most recent of which was in 2014. After completing her suspension, Sharapova started off with the Stuttgart Open 2017 and made it all the way to the semifinal, where she lost to Kristina Mladenovic. She also played in Madrid Open, where she lost to Eugenie Bouchard, a well-known critic of the decision to allow Sharapova back into the fold, in the very first round.
What’s quite interesting in the women’s tennis right now, is the fact that none of the experienced players have been able to make an impact on the tour. It’s the young guns who are sailing through. Karolina Pliskova started the year well, having two titles already. But it’s the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina that the other players need to keep an eye on.
Latest French Open odds have Simona Halep as the women’s favourite to win the title but that could change overnight.
She has won three titles so far, with the most recent one being the Istanbul Cup. She is in a great form, but she can expect some resistance from the likes of Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep. They are considerably experienced and that has been a deciding factor in many big matches. Moreover, Halep recently won the Madrid Open, where she defeated Mladenovic in the final.
Bouchard too, was seen in high spirits in Madrid, and it would be great for her if she can carry the same form to Paris too. But the nature of unpredictability in women’s tennis can give us an unexpected name as the victor this year. Nevertheless, 2017 French Open is going to be a terrific one.
