What are the odds?

World number one and defending French Open champion Novak Djokovic is the bookies favourite on the men’s side having missed the Australian Open in January because of his vaccination status. The Serb (best price 9/5) landed his first title of the year at the Italian Open in Rome over the weekend in a repeat of last year’s French Open final against Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 34-year-old just shades Carlos Alcaraz (9/4), the first teenager to beat Rafa Nadal on clay, and the great Spaniard himself (11/4), as Nadal bids for an incredible 14th title at Roland Garros.

Player Best Price Worst Price
Novak Djokovic 9/5 13/8
Carlos Alcaraz 9/4 7/4
Rafa Nadal 11/4 9/4
Stefanos Tsitsipas 8/1 11/2
Alexander Zverev 18/1 13/1
Casper Ruud 40/1 18/1
Daniil Medvedev 50/1 15/1


On the women’s side, Iga Swiatek (11/10) assumes strong favouritism for the event after the shock retirement of Australian Open winner Ashleigh Barty. Swiatek was the champion here two years ago but was beaten in the quarter-finals by Maria Sakkari (22/1) in 2021.

Two-time Grand Slam champion and 2020 French Open winner Simona Halep is considered the closest contender to Swiatek at a best price 10/1, while Paula Badosa – a quarter-finalist last year – comes third in the market at 14/1.

Player Best Price Worst Price
Iga Swiatek 11/10 4/6
Simona Halep 10/1 7/1
Paula Badosa 14/1 9/1
Ons Jabeur 18/1 11/1
Maria Sakkari 22/1 13/1
Aryna Sabalenka 22/1 14/1
Naomi Osaka 33/1 12/1
