2023 French Open Men’s Singles Betting Preview: Will it be King Carlos Alcaraz?
Carlos Alcaraz (2.25) is hardly an original choice in our French Open tennis predictions but there’s plenty of evidence to suggest the favourite should actually be a shorter price to win the title. He’s already won claycourt events in Barcelona and Madrid this spring, while his main title rivals, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, have had problems with form and injury respectively.
Holger Rune (17.0)
The next man to make our French Open tennis predictions list is Holger Rune (17.0). The runner-up in Monte Carlo and winner in Munich, Rune is shaping up for a title bid at the highest level. He looks to have the talent and determination to go to the very top. This could be his big breakthrough.
Lorenzo Musetti (81.0)
Further down the market, those looking for some each-way outright value would do well to consider Lorenzo Musetti (81.0). The Italian beat Djokovic en route to the last eight in Monte Carlo and followed that up with a narrow semi-final defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas in Barcelona. The 21-year-old also has claycourt wins over Carlos Alcaraz, Stan Wawrinka, Cam Norrie and Felix Auger-Aliassime on his CV so has definite potential at a big price.
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (126.0)
The final one of our French Open tennis betting tips on the men’s side is Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (126.0). Of those at triple-figure prices, ADF catches the eye the most. He’s very capable on clay, as shown at last year’s Monte Carlo Masters where he beat Djokovic before finishing runner-up. This season, he’s already beaten Rune on his favourite clay surface and also pushed Alcaraz hard in their Barcelona quarter-final.
2023 French Open Women’s Singles Betting Preview: Treble chance for Swiatek
Our French Open tennis predictions for this year’s women’s singles begin with Iga Swiatek (1.73), who is hard to oppose for the title, even at 1.73. It’s difficult to look past a player who has won two of the last three French Opens. This is her favourite surface and she’s dominated on it in recent years. A loss in the Madrid final to Aryna Sabalenka wasn’t ideal but the higher altitude aided her opponent that day. Paris won’t be the same.
Barbora Krejcikova (15.0)
Barbora Krejcikova (15.0) has also won here before – in 2021 – and a repeat should not be ruled out. The Czech star struggled with injury for large parts of last season. However, she’s shown plenty of signs that she’s getting back to her best so far in 2023 and on the clay courts she loves, Krejcikova looks a good price and gets the nod in our French Open tennis betting tips.
Martina Trevisan (67.0)
For those who like to follow course form when making their Roland Garros predictions, Martina Trevisan (67.0) is an interesting one for each-way punters. The left-hander was a surprise quarter-finalist in 2020 but went one better last season, making the last four.
Madison Keys (101.0)
The final one of our French Open tennis predictions is Madison Keys each way at 101.0. Always a player who seems overpriced for the Slams, Keys made the semis here four years ago and has another QF appearance on her record. Few hit harder than Keys and if she brings her top form, she’ll be hard to beat.
