One of the great marvels with the sport is the emphasis of individuality, where each participant can show off their skills and prove to the world that they deserve to be there fighting it out amongst the greats of Tennis. French Open betting is very popular, due to the nature of the sport and the sheer number of supporters it carries forth with every event. Whilst betting can be competed on all participants of the tournament, a majority of it all rests on the big one, the Finals for both the Mens and Women’s single, considered the highlight of the entire tournament. The large population of the United States is also a major contributor, even despite the following of other more team based sports.
The French Open is one France’s greatest events of Tennis and a Tennis Grand Slam, which takes place in New York and Queens. It is one of 4 major Tennis Grand Slams which also includes the US Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Held annually over the months of May and June, this event brings in over 128 players for both the Men’s and Women’s singles, each competing to make it to the final and become the champion of the event, netting up to 1,300,000 Euros in award prizes as a result for the Champion, a significant amount of money, especially considering the current debt crisis. Attendance figures are high for the sport, especially considering whether or not home grown players are competing, yet this does not compete with the legions of fans that turn out for other Open titles. The odds for French Open betting enthusiasts seem tighter for this event than the other Grand Slams. Sporting events such as Tennis gather a large number of followers to the sport, especially of those who enjoy seeing the highest class of professional tennis player take to the court and demonstrate supreme performance and control of the game.
The 2012 French Open is still yet to take place, proceeding after the Australian Open. Last year’s event saw some astounding records made, such Li Na winning her first ever Grand Slam tennis singles title and first ever Grand Slam singles title for Asia and China. The final of the French Open took place between Rafael Nadal taking on Federal and winning his sixth French Open title. Much like all finals, there was no questioning that these two were extreme competitors and odds of either winning were slim, though Nadal had shown considerable edge in the lead up to the final. With very tight odds given on the final winner, it made determining the finalist a real challenge.
