Women's French Open: Prediction, Tips and Odds

The French Open, the second of the year’s four Grand Slams, starts in Paris on Sunday and Racing Post's Adrian Humphries has picked out his best bets for the women's singles, opting for two players who could lift the trophy.

The French Open saw eight different champions between 2014 and 2021, which shows how open things were on the women’s tour in those years, however Swiatek has now lifted the trophy in three of the past four years, stamping her mark on the clay-court arena.

While there are some fine young performers coming through, the experienced and inexperienced alike will do well to stop the Pole in her Parisian playground.

Swiatek always idolised 14-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal. She’s unlikely to even get close to the Spaniard’s incredible array of titles at Roland Garros, but for now there are few capable of living with her on the slow courts.

Women's French Open betting tips and predictions

Iga Swiatek to win the French Open - 8/13

Swiatek is hoping to win a fourth French Open singles title in the space in five years and there doesn’t look to be anyone capable of stopping the Pole’s superb run on the Paris clay.

Swiatek has already been victorious on the slow red terrain in Madrid and Rome this year and that is ominous for any opponent who has serious hopes of trying to thwart the world number one in Paris.

In Madrid she despatched Xiyu Wang, Sorana Cirstea, Sara Sorribes Tormo, Beatriz Haddad Maia and Madison Keys and Aryna Sabalenka on the way to taking the title.

Then in Rome it was the turn of Bernarda Pera, Yulia Putintseva, Angelique Kerber, Keys, Coco Gauff and Sabalenka again to feel the force of Swiatek, who didn’t drop a set in the Eternal City.

Swiatek can be top-class on hard courts too, but on clay she is nigh on unopposable.

As those key events suggest, Sabalenka has been her closest challenger, but while she took a set off Swiatek in the Spanish capital final, at the Foro Italico the world number two won a total of just five games.

Qinwen Zheng each-way for French Open - 33/1

China’s Li Na went all the way in the French Open in 2011, but the nation’s next Grand Slam champion could be Qinwen Zheng.

It’s difficult to be confident just yet about which of the surfaces is Zheng’s favourite, but she possesses an excellent physique for tennis and appears to be closing in on a maiden Grand Slam title.

Zheng made the fourth round in Paris on her main-draw debut there in 2022, but importantly she reached her first major singles final at the Australian Open in January.

That could be a huge pointer to her chances of shining in the Slams this year, and even though Zheng is still only 21 years old, she should not fear anyone with the possible exception of Swiatek.

Zheng is high up in the outright betting list for the French Open and she may now be in a position to justify her lofty respect with the oddsmakers.
