The 2017 French Open, also known as Roland Garros, will begin in Paris next Monday. The tournament will be shown in it’s entirety on TSN here in Canada.
It’s been two years since Rafael Nadal hoisted the French Open title, with Stan Wawrinka taking the win in 2015 and Novak Djokovic finally getting his first elusive French Open win last year. That said, Rafa Nadal has truly returned to form this year, dominating the clay court season and is an overwhelming favourite to get back the title he held for 9 of 10 years from 2005-2014.
On the women’s side the tournament is far more wide open. Serena Williams is pregnant, so she won’t be there as an overwhelming favourite, which results in this really being anyone’s tournament to win. Simona Halep is a favourite, but Sharapova, Kerber and the rest of the top ladies will have something to say about who wins the second Grand Slam of the season.
The 2017 French Open is set to get a lot of exposure here in Canada and watching tennis a lot more fun with some action on the matches, which is why I decided to add this 3 step guide to placing bets on the French Open for Canadian residents.
I will also be adding my outright winner picks for the tournament later in the week. Stay tuned for those.
