French Open Men's Outright Odds

Novak Djokovic confirmed himself as the most successful men’s player of all-time by clinching a record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam title at the French Open last year and the Serb will have his sights set on more success in Paris in 2024.

Djokovic's third French Open title moved him one clear of Rafael Nadal in terms of men's majors, before he equaled Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles victories with a win at the 2023 US Open.

The 36-year-old guaranteed his return to world number one with that recent triumph and is naturally expected to launch a strong defence of his French Open title in 2024, with young gun Carlos Alcaraz, who was his semi-final victim, out to exact his revenge.

With his career seemingly coming to a close, Rafael Nadal will still believe he has a chance of winning a 15th clay-court Slam.

2024 Men's French Open Odds

Carlos Alcaraz

When Djokovic and Nadal finally call time on their glistening careers, Alcaraz is the man expected to dominate the tennis scene.

The 21-year-old has already claimed Grand Slam glory twice, having won the US Open in 2022 and winning Wimbledon last summer.

Alcaraz was soundly beaten by Djokovic in what was a star-studded French Open semi-final last year; the Spaniard struggled with cramps and was unable to do himself justice.

He will hope to do better this time around and win his first French Open title in Paris.

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic capitalised on the injury absence of Nadal to claim his third French Open title, a victory that moved him out on his own on 23 Grand Slam successes.

Despite that success, clay is considered the weakest surface of the Serb with only three of that major haul coming in the French capital.

But the 36-year-old showed he is still the man to be feared with this year's success, which saw him not only defeat Alcaraz, but also brush aside Karen Khachanov and Casper Ruud to take the title.

The Serbian star has since extended his Grand Slam haul to a record 24 wins and will have ambitions to make that 25 in Paris this year.

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has made the French Open his own down the years, with the mighty Mallorcan having won the Paris major on 14 occasions, failing to claim the trophy on only four of his visits to the French capital.

The 37-year-old was forced to miss the 2023 event through injury and his advancing years mean there may not be many more opportunities to see the legendary Spaniard strut his stuff on the Paris clay.

But rule the 22-time Grand Slam champion out at your peril and if turning up to this season's French Open healthy and happy, he is going to be a danger to all.

Jannik Sinner

Italian ace Jannik Sinner exploded on to the Grand Slam scene this year by winning the 2024 Australian Open, beating Daniil Medvedev in a pulsating final in Melbourne.

The 22-year-old is the highest ranked Italian tennis player in history and has enjoyed a stellar 2024, winning the Miami Masters after reaching the final at Indian Wells earlier that month.

Sinner is yet to make a significant impression at Roland Garros with his best performance culminating in a quarter-final exit back in 2020, but given his sudden rise to Grand Slam stardom, he will have ambitions to go further in Paris this time out.

Casper Ruud

Norwegian star Casper Ruud has finished runner-up twice in Paris in the last two years, with the 25-year-old also falling at the final hurdle in the 2022 US Open final.

Ruud is building a reputation as something of a clay specialist and reached the final of the Monte Carlo Masters on his favoured surface back in April, losing in the final to Stefanos Tsitsipas.

He had the unwanted record losing in six consecutive finals before claiming victory at the Barcelona Open this year, this time overcoming Tsitsipas in straight sets.

Ruud has unfinished business at Roland Garros and will hope to go one better this time out and capture his maiden Grand Slam.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas has come closer than most to be crowned French Open champion, as he led Djokovic by two sets in the 2021 final before being overhauled.

The Greek star could only make the quarter-final in 2023, being beaten by Alcaraz, but the 24-year-old still has time on his side and three of his last four title triumphs have come on the clay.

The world number nine has made at least the quarter-final in Paris in three of the last four seasons.

Holger Rune

Holger Rune is one of the game's big improvers and it appears only a matter of time before the Danish delight gets a taste of Grand Slam glory.

The 21-year-old won the 2019 French Open boys' title and in the years to come is expected to challenge for the main event.

Rune finished runner-up in Monte Carlo and Rome in 2023, two ATP 1000 events, and his two previous appearances in the main draw of the French Open have seen him make the quarter-final.

The Monaco resident was beaten by Casper Ruud in the last eight in Paris this year.
