French Open Draw: Djokovic on Collision Course with Nadal

Novak Djokovic on a collision course with Rafel Nadal Thankfully for the Serbian, it will not happen until the semifinals of Roland Garros, thus improving his tennis betting odds to make it at least that far. It would be their 50th match against each other, and while Novak Djokovic leads the personal series 26-23, Rafael Nadal – who has won the most Coupes des Mousquetaires (9) and is referred to as the King of Clay – has been the bane of Novak’s never ending quest to win a French Open. The men’s draw on Friday made sure there would be no rematch of the 2014 or 2012, both of which the Serb lost to Nadal.

French Open Draw: Serena Williams’s Heavy Load Top Half

Williams is the Queen of the Mountain in a loaded top halfSerena Williams is more often than not the choice for people who bet on tennis – not like that shiftless Venus. However, the American will have to face a top-heavy draw on her potentially record-setting French Open campaign. Williams is the Queen of the Mountain in a loaded top half that also includes Victoria Azarenka and Angelique Kerber, as well as Timea Bacsinszky, Ana Ivanovic, Carla Suarez Navarro, Dominika Cibulkova, Madison Keys, Andrea Petkovic, the unseeded Eugenie Bouchard and French hope Kristina Mladenovic. Tennis betting experts may think such grouping is the death knell for a Serena who hasn’t been the same since missing out on the Grand Slam with her semi-final defeat at the US Open, but she should be highly motivated nonetheless.

Federer skipping French Open is good news for Djokovic

Federer is out of French Open 2016Novak Djokovic’s tennis betting odds of finally winning a French Open may have improved thanks – indirectly – to Roger Federer’s withdrawal from Roland Garros. The Swiss would have been seeded third at the French Open; his pulling out of the tournament means that Rafael Nadal will be moved up to the 4th seeding. As a result, the chance of a quarterfinal rematch between Nadal and Djokovic becomes null and void – meaning that the Serb should in theory have no trouble making it past that stage. Nadal is known as the King of Clay and has won the French Open 9 times; or, if you prefer, nine more times than Djokovic.

Murray's Odds Of Winning French Open Better Than Ever

Murray's odds for Roland Garros are greatAndy Murray’s tennis betting odds of winning the French Open – also known as Roland Garros – are better than ever following his defeat of world No 1 Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-3 in Sunday's Rome Masters final. The French Open is the season's only clay-court Grand Slam – and Murray had already beaten the 'King of Clay' Rafael Nadal previously at Madrid, yet another sign of the Scotsman’s steady improvement on the red stuff. Murray’s victory in Rome was his first title in the Italian capital as well as his first win over the Serbian on the clay – and only his third from their last 15 clashes on any surface.

Tennis Betting: Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Inigo Cervantes

Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Íñigo Cervantes tennis BettingTennis betting has probably seen more exciting matchups than Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Íñigo ‘Montoya’ Cervantes, which takes place at Internazionali BNL D'Italia – aka Italian Open – on Tuesday May 10th. But wouldn’t it be awesome if right before the match the Spaniard told the German: “Hello. My name is Íñigo Cervantes. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” And then he would proceed to defeat the favorite Kohlschreiber (-550) in singles combat. Well okay, he would not really be avenging his father’s death, but he would be getting a measure of revenge for the loss that Kohlschreiber inflicted on him in 2010 in Auckland (6-2,6-3).
