Special: Online Betting on the French Open

The 2015 French Open is shaping up to be one of the best sporting events this year with a peak in online gambling.

The tennis year's second Grand Slam tournament is now live at Roland Garros in Paris with the French Open and sports fans are preparing for a thrilling competition this year. So who will take the men's singles this year?

Will Nadal's Reign End?

A question asked at the onset of every French Open in the past few years: How will Rafael Nadal fare this time? The soon-to-be 29-year-old Spaniard has dominated the clay at the Roland Garros, having won every championship at the tourney since 2005 with the expectation of 2009 when Roger Federer took the title. Rafael Nadal has won the Roland Garros 10 times, holding an amazing record of 73-1 in the tourney.

If Rafa takes this French Open, it'll be his tenth win in number. A win in Paris will will be a sensational achievement for this athlete, as he will officially become the winner of 15 Grand Slams – just two behind Roger Federer. But things aren't so sure this time around: Nadal has lost five times on clay in 2015, something that has only happened four times between 2006 and 2010 to give a sense of proportion. In outright odds at bookie bet365 Sports, Nadal was 4/1 to win the tourney.

Djokovic for the Win?

It is no surprise that one of the biggest favorites to win the men's singles in this tourney is the top-ranked player in the world now, Novak Djokovic. This is helped by his win over Nadal in the Monte Carlo semi-finals in April, but he is also 35-2 in 2015 with five titles to his name since the year began, including the Australian Open Grand Slam win over Andy Murray.

Djokovic is missing only the French Open to complete his career Grand Slam, and we're sure to see him giving his best this tourney. He lost last year's French Open final to Nadal, and he'll be especially hungry this time around. Winner Sports had Djokovic has a top favorite to win the tourney in outrights with 17/20 odds.

Tough Competition

Aside for last year's finalists, there are some top competitors who could surprise and take the title from the big two. Roger Federer, for an instance, who stopped shining like he did a few years ago.

The Swiss has gotten to the French Open final five times, winning the 2009 one against Nadal; it can be very likely he'll make a sixth appearance this year. But Federer is not alone. The likes of Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych, Kei Nishikori and David Ferrer are all hungry just the same for the title.

The French Open is watched by millions all over the world, also attracting many bets. This glorious display of tennis has become a big online gambling event, bringing many to place in-play wagers on the games.
