Tennis odds will of course have Rafael Nadal as the favorite but as was proven in the past there is no such thing as a lock with the tennis betting odds.
The 2011 French Open will take place May 17 through June 5 at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France. Roland Garros is an important historic figure in France and the venue was named in his honor for his service as a leading French aviator.
Sports Gambling is your French Open source with odds on all of the major matches and top players so be sure to have you account open and ready for action.
The 2011 French Open will be the 110th tournament in the history of the event. The French Open is what is known as a “Grand Slam” event which means that it is one of the four “major” tournaments on the ATP World Tennis Tour and WTA Tour as there are both men’s and women‘s divisions at Roland Garros.
Last year Nadal came back to beat the Roland Garros odds as the champion of the tournament after having to withdraw the year before due to injury as his hated arch rival, Roger Federer, won the2009 French Open to complete a career “Grand Slam” in which he was a winner in all four of the major events on the ATP Tour.
The tennis gambling winner of the women’s side of the French Open last year was Francesca Schiavone. The previous era of dominance by the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, appears to be over as there is a new and exciting crop of European stars that are taking over the women’s side of the game. In fact there is not an American ranked in the top 16 of the WTA rankings.
The surface of the French Open is one of its charms and points of contention for many players in the event. Roland Garros is a clay surface which has proven to be a major factor in handicapping the tennis odds. Federer was notorious for his struggles on the clay surface while Nadal has excelled and dominated on the clay of the French Open.
