THE second Grand Slam of the tennis season takes centre stage today as the French Open gets under way in Paris.
Roger Federer is a notable absentee after withdrawing with a back injury – the first Grand Slam he has missed this century – while king of clay Rafa Nadal is 11-2 at BetVictor to land his 10th Roland Garros title and defending champ Stan Wawrinka is a 14-1 chance at StanJames.
In the women’s draw it’s again a question of whether anyone can stop Serena Williams, the reigning champ and 5-2 title favourite at Skybet.
Two-times winner Maria Sharapova misses out due to her doping ban and Serena’s main contenders include Simona Halep (61-10, marathonbet) and Victoria Azarenka (15-2, Betfair) while British No.1 Johanna Konta is 100-1 at the likes of Sportingbet and Coral.
Elsewhere today there’s the likes of Test cricket and rugby league worth a flutter so post your sporting tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.
