The Favorite To Win The 2017 French Open: Rafael Nadal -135

The ATP’s #4 ranked player sure appears destined for another huge win on the clay at Roland-Garros. He’s won 9 French Open titles, including winning 5 straight titles from 2010 through 2014. Rafa’s on his way to having his best year since 2010 when he won 10 singles titles while going 75 and 7 in wins and losses. So far, Rafa has won 2 singles titles while going 29-5 in wins and losses.

But, the odds are much too low to back Nadal in the French Open. I must look elsewhere for my smart, and longshot plays.

The Smart Pick To Win The 2017 French Open: Novak Djokovic +450

Djokovic only has a single French Open win on his resume. The good news for Djokovic and his fans is that it happened in 2016. Since he’s the defending champion, he must be respected. So far in 2017, he’s taken his time. Djokovic has won a lone singles title while going 14 and 4 in wins and losses.

But, Djokovic, might be coming up to his best form. He lost in the semifinals in Rome to Alexander Zverez on May 21. He appeared to be a tennis player that didn’t want to leave it all out on the court. I think Djokovic shows up big time at the French Open. Also, when was the last time bettors could get above 4 to 1 odds on Djokovic to win any tournament?

The Longshot Pick To Win The 2017 French Open:  Dominic Thiem +1200

The odds are somewhat low on Thiem to win at Roland-Garros. But, when it comes to Men’s Tennis, there aren’t that many players that can beat Djokovic, Andy Murray, and Nadal. Thiem has a 22-10 win-loss record this year. He has won a singles title. And, most importantly, he’s beaten Rafa.

Thiem beat Nadal in the quarterfinals 6-4, 6-3 in Rome. He lost to Djokovic in the semifinals, 1-6, 0-6. It won’t be easy for Thiem, but I believe he’s got the best shot of beating one of the Top 3 favorites at the French Open.
