2019 French Open Tennis Tips: Women’s
The holder Simona Halep (4/1)is the favourite and her style of play is well suited to the clay courts. Main problem is her consistency and can’t always handle the big hitters. Also, nobody has retained their title here since 2007 when Justine Henin won. Halep might reach another final but winning it might be too much.
Kiki Bertens (8/1) is in good form this year and very much at home on clay. She beat Halep in Madrid recently although surprisingly lost to Konta in Rome. She has a good 13-3 record on clay this season.
Karolina Pliskova (15/1) can also be considered to have a chance after winning in Rome and reached the semis in Paris in 2017. Although clay not her favourite surface she has reached at least the quarters in six of her last nine majors.
Naomi Osaka (14/1) would have been a main challenger, young strong and very confident after winning the last 2 Grand Slams but her fitness has been a problem recently. Her current price of 14/1 is very good if she is fully fit.
Outsider bet we can look at Madison Keys (33/1) she reached the Semi -finals last year and won her first clay court title at Charleston recently beating fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets. She has improved on clay recently since re-hiring her old coach and beat Stephens and Ostapenko on her way to winning at Charleston.
2019 French Open Preview: Men’s
Nadal (11/10) as always is the favourite at his ‘home’ tournament but many people think it might be one tournament too much with so many injuries over the years finally catching up with him. He used to be odds 5/6 in the last 2 years but if he keeps fit he could make it an incredible 12 wins.
Djokovic (5/2) is the main contender and is in good form after winning at Madrid recently but only has 1 win in Paris in 2016 when he beat Andy Murray. He won the Australian Open and has a good record on clay this season.
Thiem (5/1) is a great Clay court player and seen as the player to take over Nadal as the clay court favourite. The Austrian has reached the semis of the French Open in 2016 and 2017 and lost to Nadal in the 2018 final.
Outsider bet goes to Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas (20/1) emerging as the next big thing and beat Nadal and Federer this year. He has won 3 tournaments and reached the final in Madrid and semis at Rome recently.
