2020 French Open Betting

There aren’t many tournaments played on clay court during the long tennis season, but the most important one is clearly the French Open. It is the only Grand Slam played on clay court, and it is the second Grand Slam of the year. While the men’s side has been dominated by Rafael Nadal for 15 years, the women’s side is wide open, and we could see our seventh champion in seven years in 2020.

Catch all the action at the 2020 French Open from Monday, May 25 through Sunday, June 7. Early round coverage will be broadcast on the Tennis Channel, and the NBC family of networks has rights to the entire event.

2020 French Open At a Glance

Location: Roland Garros, Paris, France

Surface: Clay

Total Participants: 128 men and women

Defending Champions: Rafael Nadal, Ashleigh Barty

Rafael Nadal continues to dominate the French Open like no player has dominated any other tournament in the history of tennis. Nadal has won 12 Grand Slam titles at Roland Garros, and he is the best clay-court player the world has ever seen. Even though he will turn 34 during the tournament, he will almost certainly be the odds-on favorite per the French Open betting odds once this event gets underway.

It’s anyone’s guess who the favorite will be on the women’s side since there have been six different winners in six years. Serena Williams, Simona Halep, and Ashleigh Barty are the most likely favorites with recent French Open wins.

Most Career Men's French Open Wins (Open Era)

6 Bjorn Borg 1974, 1975, 1978-1981

3 Ivan Lendl 1984, 1986, 1987
3 Gustavo Kuerten 1997, 2000, 2001

It's all about Rafael Nadal. He has won 12 French Open titles, and it's hard to see anyone ever running him down. Nadal has twice as many victories at Roland Garros than the next closest player (Bjorn Borg), and he has four times as many titles as anyone else in the Open Era here.

There isn't another active player who has multiple wins at the French Open aside from Nadal. He has only failed to win the event three times since claiming his first title in 2005, and his only losses were to Novak Djokovic and Robin Soderling. Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Stan Wawrinka are the only other players that have won this event in the last 15 years, and they are all one and one winners.

3 Monica Seles 1990, 1991, 1992
3 Serena Williams 2002, 2013, 2015

*Court won a total of five French Open titles in her career, but her first two were a part of the amateur era in 1962 and 1964

American Chris Evert is largely considered one of the best clay-court players in the history of women's tennis. Evert claimed seven titles over the course of 13 years at the French Open. Steffi Graf challenged Evert, but her six titles weren't quite good enough to pass her. Had Justine Henin played longer, she could have perhaps challenged both. She won four titles in five years from 2003 through 2007 at the French Open and was a fantastic clay court player.

Serena Williams has the most French Open titles of any active player, but this is her least successful Grand Slam with only three titles in her 20 years on the tour. We have seen six different women when the French Open in the last six years, and this is the most open Grand Slam event of the bunch.
