Betting on the French Open fill with lot of exciting tennis action and is probably the most unpredictable of the grand slams, with many odds-on favorites losing in the opening rounds.
The championship is wide open compared to those of the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open because of the clay factor, although there are some obvious contenders.
Spaniard Rafael Nadal is the man to beat whenever it comes to playing on clay, winning 4 titles in a row from 2005 to 2008. In 2009, Roger Federer joined an exclusive company of tennis champions to win all four majors when he won first French Open title.
Roland Garros has been the Achilles heal of several top players over the years that were never able to conquer the clay at Roland Garros.
The red clay court at the French Open is unique among Grand Slam events.
It is a slower playing surface than grass or hardcourt, which makes success difficult for even the best tennis players, including past pros, like Pete Sampras and women's tennis players Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis.
These players have dominated other Grand Slam events, but struggled to win the French Open. Other players, however, have become "clay specialists" and managed to make careers out of their success at the French Open. Rafael Nadal would be a current example of such a specialist.

From its founding in 1891 through 1924, the French National Championship was exactly that - purely national, open only to members of French tennis clubs.
Largely because of the Davis Cup, though, tennis became a truly international sport in the early 1920s, and the French tournament was opened to other nations in 1925. Attendance increased immediately, and in 1928 a new stadium was built at Porte d'Auteuil, just outside Paris, to host the event.
It was named for a famous French flier, Roland Garros. The tournament became the French Open in 1968, when professional players were admitted for the first time.
The French Open is the only major tournament played on clay courts. As a result, it isn't generally considered quite as important as the other three majors.
Rafael Nadal of Spain won an unprecedented ninth French Open championship Sunday, denying Serbia's Novak Djokovic his quest to secure a career Grand Slam with the only major he lacks.
On Philippe Chatrier Court, No. 1 Nadal wore down No. 2 Djokovic 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4, in a match that went 3 hours, 31 minutes, becoming the first man to win five consecutive titles in Paris.
Mean while, 20-year old Garbine Muguruza dominated Serena Williams in a way you almost never see, handing the 17-time slam champion a humiliating 6-2, 6-2 defeat in just 64 minutes.
She pinned Williams behind the baseline, she handcuffed Williams with powerful, repetitive down-the-middle ground strokes while never losing her nerve.
Instead of trying to outslug Williams with winners, she simply tried to limit Williams' movement and power. And it worked.
