Sportsbook – Women’s French Open Preview

October 23rd, 2020 Sportsbook

Sportsbook – Women’s French Open Preview for Fans to Consider. The French Open on the men’s side is all about Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in tennis odds at the sportsbook.The French Open begins on Sunday and unlike the men’s side where Nadal and Djokovic are expected to meet in the final, anything is possible on the women’s side and the odds at the sportsbook are wide open.  Let’s look at the leading contenders in sportsbook online odds at Sbg global.com and a couple of longshots.

Both of the Williams’ sisters are out with injuries so there is not a clear cut choice on the women’s side to win the French Open. There are some definite contenders though.

Caroline Wozniacki
She is the top ranked player in the world but has yet to win a major. The world number one ranking has been more of a burden to her than a help and she has the pressure on her to win at Roland Garros.

Maria Sharapova
She is playing very well coming into the French Open and if you have to make a pick of anyone to win then it has to be Sharapova. The concern with her is that she is not always focused. If she would just concentrate on tennis she could be really good.  The French Open is the only Grand Slam tournament she has not won in her career.

Francesca Schiavone
She is the defending champion and because of her success on clay she has a chance to win again.

Kim Clijsters
If she was fully healthy then she would be the pick to win as she has the talent and the mental strength to win big matches. She has won the last two Grand Slam events but her an injury to her right ankle is a big concern.

Victoria Azarenka
She is a big hitter who has the ability to play very well. She also has the tendency to get hurt which makes her a risky bet at the sportsbook.

Longshots
Julia Goerges
If you want to take a shot with a player who should get some nice sportsbook online odds then Goerges is worth a look.

Petra Kvitova
She won the Paris Open in February and could definitely be a factor in the French Open.

Two other logical contenders would be Vera Zvonareva who is ranked #3 in the world but she has never played well on clay and Li Na is ranked #6 in the world but her form on clay is also suspect.
