The 2020 French Open will kick-start on May 24 and will go on for a fortnight as some of the top players from around the world look to add the toughest Slam under their belt. The defending champion in the men’s half is Rafael Nadal, while in the women’s half, it’s the Australian Ash Barty who won her first ever Grand Slam title at the previous French Open.

Both of the players had an interesting journey in Paris in 2019. Both players were the top seeds in the competition but in a tournament where seeds often fall by the wayside, both Nadal and barty went on to pick up the titles.

The Spaniard won the tournament five times consecutively between 2010 and 2014, before succumbing to form and injury troubles and having won it now 12 times.

But from the very start of 2017 season, he appeared to have not only regained his flair, but also, he improved dramatically. The end result saw him win the French Open by defeating Dominic Thiem in the final.

And now moving into the 2020 edition of the French Open, there’s no doubting that if Nadal can maintain his fitness, he will start off as a favourite yet again despite his recent form woes. Moving on to Barty, she wrote history as cruised to win her first ever Grand Slam title and capture the world number one position.

General Tips for Betting on the French Open

We will update you with some general tips around French Open in particular but if you are new to tennis betting we recommend you read our 10-step beginner’s guide here.

Going into the 2020 edition of the French Open, it will be interesting to see whether the men’s title can be challenged for by any other player – the likes of Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev will hope to push their form ahead too.

Halep will be at the forefront too but it’s only fair to say there would be a lot more contenders to that throne given that the women’s singles has seen five different champions over the past five years.

What will be interesting to see is if Federer opts to play in the tournament with his preference towards clay quite well-chronicled. Novak Djokovic will be another key player who is looking to get to his best form having had a brilliant run in recent times. Lot of eyes will be on him.

What Happened at the 2019 French Open?

As mentioned earlier, Nadal and Barty were the singles winners at the 2019 French Open. Nadal needed four sets to get past his challenger on clay, Dominic Thiem while Barty ran past Marketa Vondrousova in straight sets to lift her first Grand Slam title and got to the number one ranking in the world.

World number one and top seeded Novak Djokovic looked like he was going on solid run as he won five matches in a row in straight sets, including one against Alexander Zverev but was ousted in the semifinal by Dominic Thiem. Nadal dropped a set to David Goffin in the third round but that aside, he had barely any difficulties getting to the final. This included a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Roger Federer in the semifinal.

Barty had gone into the tournament as the eighth seed, and registered easy, straight-set wins in her first three rounds before Sofia Kenin managed to take a set off her in the fourth. She then beat Madison Keys and Amanda Anisimova in straight sets to set up her finals with Vondrousova.

Top seeded and Australian Open winner Naomi Osaka fell away in the third round, as did the second seeded Karolina Pliskova, while Kiki Bertens and Angelique Kerber didn’t get that far. Defending champion Simona Halep was one of the losing quarterfinalists, joined by Keys, Sloane Stephens and Petra Martic. Johanna Konta and Anisimova made it to the semifinals before losing out on the finals berth.
