The French Open kicks off this weekend and as a grand slam, you can expect to see some fantastic tennis throughout. The clay surface used for the event will greatly favour some players more than others and that is easily seen when looking at the betting for the men’s event, where Rafael Nadal is long odds on to lift the trophy. The women’s event is much closer, and whether it is the men or women on show, we are going to see some great games of tennis over the coming two weeks.

How to Watch the French Open Live on TV

The French Open is very accessible for fans, and you will be able to enjoy vast coverage on two different channels. Both ITV4 and Eurosport will be covering the action on a daily basis, with all the top games live throughout the day. With such extensive coverage you should be able to place your bets and then sit back and relax while you watch the action that is taking place in France.

French Open Winer Odds

Rafael Nadal is the hot favourite for the men’s event this year and if you want to back him then head over to 10Bet, where he is a best price 3/8 to lift the trophy. With no Andy Murray and Roger Federer, the door looks wide open for the clay expert Nadal to take this crown.

The women’s event is the complete opposite of the men’s, with a wide open feel to it. Simona Halep is the 11/2 favourite to lift the crown with SunBets, but at 6/1 Elina Svitolina is just behind her. Two veterans, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams can both be backed at 11/1 with Black Type if you are looking for value away from the favourites.
