French Open 2022: Grand Slam tennis tournament set for May and June

Tennis is one of the most popular sports to wager on. It may shock non-tennis fans and bettors to learn that the game is one of the most-watched global. The fast-paced action and intensity of every serve and volley make it great for betting on. 

The best tennis players in the world are set for Paris and Roland-Garros in May and June for the 126th edition of the French Open. The French Open is one of the four Grand Slams of tennis and it is the second of the major tournaments on the annual calendar.

One of the aspects of the French Open that makes it so intriguing is the playing surface. The Roland-Garros tournament is played entirely on clay, setting it apart from the grass of Wembley and the hard courts of the Aussie and US Opens.

Winning the French Open puts a tennis player in elite company. It can make a career overnight. Along with gaining recognition, players earn 2000 ranking points and £1.2 million in winnings. For sports bettors, the fierce nature of the French Open makes it ideal for wagering on.

In 2021, the tournament introduced night matches for the first time. Between May 23 and June 3, the French Open will once again use night matches. This gives bettors the chance to wager on the tournament around the clock and to watch more of the matches.

The French Open will be played at Roland-Garros in Paris. All matches will be played on clay courts. Players will have to learn quickly how to judge the bounce of the ball and come to grips with their footing.

The draws for both the men’s and women’s singles tournaments will consist of 104 direct entries, 16 qualifiers, and eight wildcards. The tournament will have 32 seeded players in each draw.

It is believed the women’s top 10 players in the world will all be on hand to play at the French Open. The biggest names in women’s tennis are nearly all set for the draw.

There are still questions about four-time Grand Slam winner Naomi Osaka’s participation. She withdrew from the Italian open following an Achilles injury.

On the men’s side, Roger Federer will miss the event. Andy Murray is also set to skip Roland-Garros. Rafael Nadal is nursing a foot injury and may not be in attendance.
