2022 French Open predictions & odds to reign at Roland Garros

We’re posting our 2022 French Open predictions regarding who will win the men’s and women’s singles titles at Roland Garros this season.

The second grand slam event of the year usually favours the clay-court specialists and here are our betting tips to reign on the red stuff in Paris.

Men’s singles: RAFAEL NADAL @ 2.75

This promises to be a battle of the ages, with teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz (3.0) backed by many to signal a changing of the guard at Roland Garros.

The Spaniard beat Nadal and Novak Djokovic (4.0) on route to winning the Madrid Open, with world number three Alexander Zverev (15.0) suitably impressed after a 6-3 6-1 drubbing in the decider.

Zverev told Alcaraz: “I want to congratulate Carlitos. Right now, you are the best player in the world. It is great for tennis that we have such a new superstar that is going to win so many grand slams.”

However, it is one thing to breeze through a warm-up event and an altogether different task to get past the greats of the game when they are fully focused on grand slam glory.

This exact Paris surface has a slightly higher bounce and has always especially suited Nadal, with 13 of his 21 grand slam titles claimed here.

The 35-year-old is in better shape than when beaten in the semis by Djokovic 12 months ago, having already battled to an epic Australian Open triumph this term.

“My only dream is to be in Paris healthy enough and physically good enough to compete at the highest level possible,” said Nadal.

“If that happens, I know it’s a tournament that I have been playing well a lot of times in my career. Why can’t I be competitive again and give me one more chance?”

Women’s singles: PAULA BADOSA @ 13.0

Past trends provide few clues over who will become this year’s queen of clay, as our great French Open infographic highlights.

There have been eight different winners in as many years – and some have literally come out of nowhere to totally dominate for a fortnight.

World number one Iga Swiatek did just that in 2020 and is 2.65 to regain her crown in the 2022 French Open odds, while Barbora Krejcikova is 17.0 to rediscover last year’s form that saw her blast away the opposition.

Ashleigh Barty’s unexpected retirement and Naomi Osaka’s injury problems have reduced our options this term, but we’re sticking with the Spanish theme for a value alternative in our 2022 French Open predictions.

Badosa has been rising up the rankings over the past few years and now looks ready for a break-out slam performance after reaching the quarter-finals at Roland Garros last year.

The aggressive 24-year-old, who was actually born in New York but lives and trains in Barcelona, has been hitting the ball well in warm-up events.

After Belgrade and Indian Wells victories in 2021, she added a third WTA Tour title to her CV in Sydney this term and the stage is set for her to now step up to the next level.
