WTA Roland Garros Odds – Early Favorites

Swiatek, Halep and Krejcikova Are Players To Beat

Even though the much anticipated French Open, commonly known as Roland Garros, starts on May 22 and runs to June 5, oddsmakers have rolled out early betting markets at BetUS sportsbook. In this early serving, three players have been signaled out as the so-called best bets to win the title. They are former French Open champions Iga Swiatek and Simona Halep, and defending titleholder Barbora Krejcikova.

Swiatek leads the charge as the +250 bet while Halep is priced at +650. Krejcikova, by contrast, is priced in quadruple digits at +1000. Here is the complete list of Roland Garros tennis odds as per BetUS (odds on April 30, 2022).

Swiatek Tops Betting Board

Ashleigh Barty’s sudden retirement from tennis in March propelled Swiatek to the top of the WTA rankings, but the Polish star has backed it up. In fact, there is no player more deserving of the top ranking in the women’s game  now than Swiatek.

The 20-year-old is the hottest player on the tour with an impressive 32-3 win-loss record and four titles in 2022 (as of April 30, 2022).

The 20-year-old won three consecutive titles on hard courts, including the Sunshine Double – titles at WTA 1000 Indian Wells and Miami in the same season. Swiatek became the fourth player and the youngest of all to win the Sunshine Double after Steffi Graff (1994 and 1996, Kim Clijsters (2005) and Victoria Azarenka (2016).

In Stuttgart, her first clay-court tournament of the season, Swiatek reeled off four straight victories to win the title. She beat Aryna Sabalenka in the final 6-2, 6-2.

Swiatek won her maiden grand slam title at the 2020 French Open, which was rescheduled from May to October due to the coronavirus pandemic. Given her previous success in Paris and current form and confidence, she’s quite rightly cast as the tennis betting favorite.

If there’s one thing to pay close attention it’s fitness/injury. Swiatek withdrew from this week’s prestigious WTA Madrid Open due to a sore arm.

Halep Partners with Mouratoglou

Halep is tipped as the second-best bet to win the French Open title despite being ranked outside of the Top 20 ahead of this week’s Madrid Open. A lot of factors have impacted her favorable tennis odds, but, perhaps, none more so than her recently announced partnership with Patrick Mouratoglou.

Mouratoglou spent several years as Serena Williams’ head coach, but last month joined Halep’s team after the Romainian spent some time hitting in his academy in Paris.

The pair began working together this week in Madrid where Halep recorded her first win under Mouratoglou. After the win, she claimed she had the “fire back.” Halep extended her winning form with a complete dismantling of Paula Badosa in the R32, 6-3, 6-1.

It’s early days yet. Two victories from a small cross-section are impossible to provide a true sense of this newly formed working relationship. Should the pair win one of the two prestigious French Open warmup events though – either Madrid this week or Rome in a couple of weeks – then watch out.

Krejcikova Question Marks

Krejcikova’s dream run to win the French Open title captured the imagination of many tennis fans around the globe. It was a Cinderella run that came completely out of nowhere because she was better known for her doubles prowess than her singles game.

Importantly, Krejcikova proved it wasn’t a fluke as she went on to reach the fourth round of Wimbledeon and the quarterfinals of the US Open that same year. As well, she started the year strong with a quarterfinal finish Down Under.

Since March, though, Krejcikova has been missing in action. She withdrew from Indian Wells with an elbow injury. On the 2022 season, her record stands at 9-4 and her last match was a R16 exit to Jelena Ostapenko at the Qatar Open.

It remains to be seen whether Krejcikova will compete in Paris next month. If she does, her lack of match play will be a concern and it will make her title defense campaign that much harder. This fact does take the shine off of her value in betting online markets for now.

Muguruza, Badosa and Sakkari Contenders

Garbine Muguruza is a former French Open champion. She’s priced as a contender at +1200 to win the title, which puts her amongst the top contenders. Whether she belongs there is up for debate. Her season has been tospy-turvy and she’s played limited matches. She’s only 5-5 on the season going into Madrid.

Maria Sakkari (+1200) and Paula Badosa (+1200) are in better form than Muguruza, as both enter the European clay-court swing ranked inside the Top 5. Whether their solid form transcends clay remains to be seen.

Osaka, Raducanu, Sabalenka and Gauff Overrated

Naomia Osaka is a multiple grand slam champion, but clay is not her surface. Indeed, it’s the surface that has frustrated her the most in her career. So, her price of +1200 to win the French Open is way too short, if not misleading.

Emma Raducanu stunned the tennis world by winning the US Open as a qualifier last year, but she’s struggled on form and consistency since. At +2000, she’s a risky bet. So too is Aryna Sabalenka (+2000), who is wholly off form and color.

American Coco Gauff reached the quarterfinals of the French Open last year, but benefited from a relatively straightforward draw. It remains to be seen whether she can back it up this year.
