The French Open is now roughly four weeks out, and the futures markets are heating up and blossoming. Both men's and women's fields see heavy betting favorites placed at the top of the French Open futures board–Iga Swiatek (-115) for the women's side of play is viewed as a dominant “lock” to win the tournament based off of the odds set by sportsbooks. The men's side features two favorites who make up two-thirds of the elite level of contenders; Novak Djokovic (+160) and Carlos Alcaraz (+165) are being viewed as the co-favorites to win the French Open. 

A North American player has not been crowned in the championship since Andre Agassi in 1999. Nadal and Bjorn Borg are the only men's players to win the French Open and Wimbledon in the same season. We will break down the betting fields for both men's and women's competitions while categorizing the contenders into varying competitive fields.

The Elite

On both sides of play, there are just a few options for elite contenders to win the French Open, at least according to oddsmakers. The only woman participant with odds lower than +1000 is Iga Swiatek (-115); Iga is ranked #1 in the world with 8975 points, and the #2 ranked player, Aryna Sabalenka, has 6945 points comparatively. The young Polish phenom currently dominates the women's side of play, owns a 78% service games won percentage and is 18-1 on clay court surfaces. In terms of the betting odds for Nadal (+250), he is seen as the third-best option to win the French Open, but his dominance over the last 14 years of French Open play is elite–Nadal has won eight of the previous ten French Opens and is considered the “King of Clay.” Novak Djokovic (+160) did not partake in the Miami Open in April, considering the U.S. and other tennis governing bodies still won't allow the unvaccinated star to travel to America and compete. Carlos Alcaraz (+165) makes up the third elite betting option regarding odds; the 19-year-old Spaniard has an 18-2 record YTD with two titles.

The Contenders

This grouping for the men's bracket consists of one player, seeing as he bridges the gap between players with odds lower than +300 and higher than +1000; that player is Stefanos Tsitsipas (+650). The Greek 24-year-old has a 14-4 record in 2023 and is in third for world rankings. The women's side offers a quartet of players with odds greater than or equal to 10:1. Ons Jabeur (+1000) recently lost in the Miami Open and is a veteran player. Rounding out the contenders for the women all with odds of +1200, are Carolina Garcia, Maria Sakarri, and Paula Badosa, who is outside of the Top-30 for world rankings–she also recently suffered defeat at the hands of eventual Miami Open champ Elena Rybanika. 

The Long Shots

Jannik Skinner (+1400) and Daniil Medvedev (+2500) are interesting long-shot plays who both just faced off against one another in the Miami Open final, with Medvedev claiming victory. On the women's side, Jessica Pegula (+1600) and Cori “Coco”  Gauff (+1600) are two North American players that have a chance of making it to the semifinal or perhaps even the final of the French Open. Over the past ten French Opens, nine different champs have been crowned–Swiatek, Serena, and Sharapova are the only ones to win multiple in this span, while there has been no back-to-back winners.
