The 2016 French Open takes place between 22 May and 5 June, with several bookmakers live streaming Roland Garros


The 2016 clay court tennis season culminates with the big one and the French Open should be a typically exciting affair when it comes to the men’s singles and the women’s singles. The great news is that online live French Open streaming is available with several bookmaker websites!


Andy Murray’s recent success in Rome suggests that the Brit is not without a chance of recording a maiden victory at Roland Garros, although the five-set format inevitably suits Novak Djokovic and the Serbian is predictably favourite to land his first French Open success.

Andy Murray in action against Ivan Dodig 

Paddy Power offer a best price 10/11 about the Serbian winning in the French capital, with a Roland Garros title the only thing missing from what has been an illustrious career for a real tennis legend.


Murray is as big as 5/1 with betfair to follow up that Rome win with a Grand Slam title in Paris and few could have imagined he would stand that sort of chance a few years ago when Rafael Nadal was conquering everyone with relative ease.


The Spaniard has shown signs of coming back towards his best and Ladbrokes offer a standout 9/2 that Nadal’s hiatus of Roland Garros dominance last just one year, although other firms as are a short as 7/2 about that happening.


The great news for tennis fans is that some bookmakers will be live streaming the 2016 French Open, meaning that every customer will be able to log into their betting account and watch the action from the show courts.


That means not missing a minute of the action when it comes to games involving Djokovic, Murray, Rafael Nadal or Serena Williams. Sadly the men’s tournament will be without Roger Federer who misses his first Grand Slam event for seventeen years, although betting customers will be able to watch live streaming of the Swiss legend’s matches at Wimbledon in June.


Bet365 are one such bookmaker live streaming the French Open and you simply need to have a funded account with this leading operator to log in and enjoy live streaming from Paris. A funded account means a betting account with money deposited using a range of methods such as debit card, PayPal or Skrill.


As with any other bookie, you can bet In-Play on the matches that are being live streamed. Indeed, you can either choose to visit the In-Play section of the website to enjoy live action accompanied by live odds. Alternatively, you can launch the Live Streaming section of the website and watch on a bigger screen.


The In-Play markets are pretty extensive and mean that in addition to Match Winner, you can bet on things like Set Winner, Game Winner or even Winner of the Next Point.


Paddy Power are another bookmaker that have bagged the rights to show the 2016 French Open at their website, which means you can access live pictures whether you access their site through mobile, tablet, laptop or PC. The picture quality is as good as you would find watching on television and it’s great for those people that want to catch the action on the move.


Once again, the only requirement is that you either have an account which is funded or alternatively, placing a bet on the tennis will automatically qualify you to watch the French Open for at least 48 hours.


Over at betfair, they are also expecting a surge of interest in the 2016 French Open thanks to their deal which means you can log into your account on a daily basis and choose from a raft of matches.


When a bookie states it will be showing live Roland Garros action from the show courts, that means a handful of courts where the top seeds in the men’s singles and women’s singles play all their matches.


The show courts are also where the latter stages of the competition are played, which means that you can log into bet365, Paddy Power or betfair and enjoy the quarter finals, semi-finals and final of the 2016 French Open.


Should you not have a betting account yet, then it’s important to register an account with the bookmaker of choice should you wish to enjoy the live streaming.


Once you have signed up with a few details, you will then have the opportunity to fund your account and this is important when accessing live streaming for the 2016 French Open.


If you don’t put any money into your betting account, then you will not be able to watch the French Open or any of the other tennis tournaments that are live streamed by the bookmakers.


However, having a funded account does not mean that you have to place a bet to enjoy the live streaming of the tennis or any other sport that is available through a bookmaker website such as bet365.


It simply means that you automatically have access to the latest live pictures and you can also enjoy the other Grand Slam tournaments throughout the tennis calendar.


The ladies French Open looks set to be an open affair, with Serena Williams admitting that clay is not her preferred surface and that is reflected in the 2/1 (bet365) about the American triumphing over the next fortnight.


Simona Halep is a 6/1 chance although the Romanian has shown a shaky temperament in the business end of Grand Slam tournaments to date and perhaps Victoria Azarenka is the best bet at 8/1 with Paddy Power.

The bookies have one other female player trading at single-figure odds, with Garbine Muguruza having wowed the crowds at Wimbledon last year and she’s as short as 8/1. However, you can get 12/1 in places that she triumphs.


Make sure you are signed up with a bookmaker showing live streaming of the 2016 French Open to ensure that you can watch all the latest games wherever you happen to be. It should be an excellent tournament.
