Where To Bet on The French Open?

The French Open, which was first played in 1891, is the second of four Grand Slam tennis events that take place each and every year.

The tennis, which takes place at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, is unique in that it is the only Grand Slam event that is played on clay. The French Open is a very physically demanding tournament, as clay slows the pace of the games down, which can result in some very long matches.

The King is about to send a mean searve.  The sport is tennis.

Clay is a unique surface to play on, and advantages that may present themselves on grass or hard courts (such as a hard serve) don't translate to the clay courts of Roland Garros. This means that players such as Rafael Nadal, who may not be as strong on grass, excel on the clay courts of the French Open. You can clearly see this in Nadal's results, as he has been absolutely dominant over the years at the French Open.

This year's French Open will be missing the best female player in the world, as Serena Williams is currently pregnant and out of action for the foreseeable future. This means that the women's draw is completely wide open this year.

On the men's side, Rafael Nadal is the favourite to win, thanks to his absolute mastery of the clay courts. While Nadal is not the most powerful player in the world, he is quick, precise and durable, which makes him the perfect player to excel at the French Open.

All eyes will be on Novak Djokovic, who is looking to regain his standing as the world's #1 men's player in the world. Andy Murray currently owns the #1 ranking, though clay is by far Murray's worst surface, so he is not expected to win this tournament.

The men's draw is expected to come down to Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, while the women's draw is completely wide open.
