Other notable men contenders are Novak Djokovic who won the French Open last year (+200), Dominic Thiem (+800), Andy Murray (+1000), and Stan Wawrinka (+1000).† Missing from this list is Roger Federer, who won the Australian Open, but opted out of participating in the French Open to focus on the grass and hard court events instead.

On the womenís side Simona Halep is the current favorite at +400, after just recently winning the Madrid Open on clay and a second place finish on the red clay courts of the Italian Open.† The other notable contenders consist of Garbrine Muguruza, who won the French Open last year (+1000), Angelique Kerber (+1000), Elina Svitolina (+1500), and Karolina Pliskova (+1500).† Two notable names missing from this list are Serena Williams who is not participating in any events until after she gives birth to her first child, and Maria Sharapova who was refused a wildcard spot from the tennis association after here controversial doping return.

In terms of betting, pay per head sites, such as Aceperhead.com will be offering odds to win each of the menís and womenís French Open, with daily updated odds to win once the tournament is under way.† Also each and every match will have a money line spread, total games over/under, spread on games for each matchup, and also live betting with countless in game betting options available.† In addition this is a great way for agents to utilize their pay per head service by offering tennis wagering to their players, and even getting them interested in not just betting Grand Slam events but all tennis events.
