We’ll have French Open 2018 betting tips throughout the second Grand Slam tournament of the year and are hoping to start off with a near-7/2 treble from these first-round match-ups.
Roland Garros will again play host to the world’s top players, as they seek to shine on the famous clay courts in Paris.
Bwin will have a host of pre-match and in-play French Open 2018 betting odds available every day and here’s our opening set of selections:
Stan Wawrinka to beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez @ 53/100
Garcia-Lopez holds a 3-2 advantage in past meetings on clay, including a 2014 triumph at Roland Garros, but Wawrinka is 7-3 ahead overall and has prevailed in the last three head-to-head encounters. The 2015 French Open champion has slipped down the rankings due to a persistent knee injury but showed some encouraging signs at the Geneva Open warm-up event and can still lift himself for the big occasion. Garcia-Lopez is at home on this surface but the 34-year-old has seen better days.
Peter Gojowczyk to beat Cameron Norrie @ 3/5
British representative Norrie has qualified directly for a slam on ranking for the first time thanks to his swift progress but his experience on clay is limited, despite making a remarkable Davis Cup debut in February by beating Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut from two sets down and playing well in Lyon. World number 49 Norrie is a solid pro who captured a first ATP World Tour title in Metz last year. The German took a set off Alexander Zverev at the Australian Open, beat John Isner on route to the Delray Beach final and recently knocked out Sam Querrey in Rome on clay.
Heather Watson to beat Oceane Dodin @ 4/5
Watson’s career has been marked by inconsistency and 2018 has been miserable so far for the 26-year-old. However, she at least goes into the French Open having ended a lengthy losing run on the WTA Tour with a win over Kateryna Bondarenko in Nurnberg and the world number 86 will hope to take belief from previous performances at Roland Garros, where she has made the second round five times. Dodin has a big serve but not much else and has also been struggling badly of late.
