French Open Odds – Nadal, Henin Favorites
by Staff | May 17th, 2010, 5:23 pm

According to Ladbrokes, four-time winners Rafael Nadal and Justine Henin are the favorites to beat at the upcoming 2010 French Open.

Nadal, who swept titles in Monte Carlo, Rome and Madrid, is rated a 4/11 favorite in the current odds with Henin, who wasn’t even playing a year ago, a 7/4 pick for the women. After Nadal is defending champion Roger Federer at 5-2, Novak Djokovic 12-1, Andy Murray and David Ferrer at 20-1 and then Fernando Verdasco and the oncoming Ernests Gulbis at 25-1.

It should be noted that Ladbrokes is based in England which gives Murray, who has never played in a clay tournament final, an extra lift in the betting odds.

Other notables are 2009 finalist Robin Soderling at 40-1, Andy Roddick is tied with Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at 100-1 and Stanislas Wawrinka is all the way down at 150-1.

The site also lists Nadal’s odds of winning the French without losing a set at 2-1, and an all-Spanish final at 5-1.

Following Henin are former champion Serena Williams at 4-1, Jelena Jankovic at 6-1, Venus Williams at 11-1 and Sam Stosur at 14-1. Madrid champion Aravane Rezai moved up to 16-1 tying her with Caroline Wozniacki.

Both finalists from last year, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Dinara Safina, are listed at 20-1. Maria Sharapova is 40-1. 2008 champion Ana Ivanovic odds are 45-1.

The French Open Clay Tennis Championships begins on Sunday.

7 Comments for French Open Odds – Nadal, Henin Favorites

Charlotte Says:

On clay, I certainly wouldn’t put Ferrer and Murray in the same league, sorry.

skeezerweezer Says:

Sorry, but “Dudebrokes*” came out with slightly different odds,

Men’s French Open Odds

S Weezer 1/1
R Nadal 4/11
R Federer 5/2
N Djokovic 12/1
A Murray 20/1
D Ferrer 20/1
F Verdasco 25/1
E Gulbis 25/1

Remember, look at these odds, and bet with your head, and your heart!

Bring it! :)

*owned and operated by “Skeeze”, and note that Weezer has never played in a clay court final either, thus the “extra” lift.

Huh Says:

Nadal again fave at FO. How surprising! ;)

Evgeni Says:

Too good credit for Federer- the old devil must retire.

jeanius Says:

Whoever put together those women’s odds must be on something, even at 100/1. And has anyone even heard of these players? They must be cousins of the oddsmakers.
A Sevastova 100/1
A Dulgheru 100/1
P Hercog 100/1

Charlotte Says:

Very strange odds, and with some of the men too. I would go along with the first three ATP guys. Djokovic could be a little dodgy, I hope he lives up to the bookies and his fans expectations. Given their proven clay court prowess, I would put Gulbis, Ferrer and Verdasco on the next level after Djokovic.

guy Says:

100/1 for gonzo is a very good deal considering how good he is on clay. even 20/1 on dement, who could can beat everyone there
