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

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
