The second tennis Grand Slam is just round the corner with The French Open taking place on the 27th May.
Rafael Nadal will of course be one of the favourites to take the title, especially as he has won six of the last seven French Open’s.
Nadal has dominated on the clay surface with some tipping him as the ‘king of clay’. The Spaniard also has two wins under his belt already this year.
Novak Djokovic is the current number one in the world so will certainly be looking to take the trophy here. This tournament is the only Major that the Serbian has failed to win.
With his stunning form over the last two years Djokovic will feel as though this title is the only thing missing from his career at the moment. He has also won the Australian Open already this campaign.
Roger Federer is one of the form players going into the competition, winning four times already this season. Federer was also the winner in the recent Madrid Masters, a result which saw him move ahead of Nadal into second in the world rankings.
He also won the tournament back in 2009 so does have happy memories of playing in Paris.
Andy Murray is still searching his first Major title, which will certainly be something playing on his mind. The Scotsman has got too six semi-finals and three finals in Grand Slams throughout his career so is being considered as the nearly man at the moment.
With Wimbledon coming up soon Murray will be looking to take some form into the tournament of his home soil.
With not many people tipping anyone to stop one of the top three winning yet another Grand Slam a lot of players will feel they have something to prove in this year’s second Major.
With his recent domination on clay, Rafael Nadal is unsurprisingly the favourite to win the title in Paris. You can back him at 1.91 (10/11) with SkyBet.
Joe Wilfred Tsonga is currently ranked as number five in the world rankings and despite not having a great record on clay will be looking to cause an upset here. He is also on home soil which will help his chances. VC Bet are offering odds of 151.00 (150/1) on a win for Tsonga.
Juan Martin Del Potro has already won a tournament on clay this year. He has also won a major before back in 2009 so knows what it takes to come out victorious. You can back Del Potro at 15.00 (14/1) with BlueSQ.
