Tennis – History of the French Open
The Tennis French Open or Les internationaux de France de Roland-Garros is one of the four major Grand Slam events in the ATP circuit.
Every year on the third week of May, the Tennis Club de Paris welcomes more than 100 players (men and women) that compete for a period of two weeks on this extraordinary clay surface located in the heart of Paris, France.
The French Open is the second Slam of the year and its purse stands at €1,250,000 for both men and women. Roland Garros is also one of the oldest tennis events with its early beginnings in 1891.
If we take a quick look at some records, we find the name of Max Decugis a French player who currently holds the most titles, a total of 8 up to this date. Decugis is closely followed by the Spaniard Rafael Nadal with 7 titles. Nadal´s reign on the red clay has lasted 3 years in a row and he will be defending his title for the 4th consecutive time.
This year’s French Open betting lines and favorites will be very tight as world number one Novak Djokovic, stands at the very top of the rankings with more than 4,000 points of difference from the rest of the top 5 pack.
Djokovic is also a strong favorite to be in the finals as he did last year when he played and lost against Nadal in four sets 6–4, 6–3, 2–6, 7–5.
Besides the Serbian there is the Scottish Andy Murray, who has leveled up his game since he partnered up with coach Ivan Lendl. And let’s not forget Spaniard David Ferrer and the always favorite, the Swiss perfection – Roger Federer.
