Serena favourite for upcoming French Open

Serena favourite for upcoming French Open

Having won the French Open on three separate occasions, most recently of which coming just twelve months ago, Serena Williams will go into next months tournament at Roland Garros as the overwhelming favourite in the women’s draw. The twenty one time grand slam winner shows no sign of relinquishing her world number one ranking and even at the age of thirty four has the weapons to hurt anyone on the WTA Tour.

Having followed up her win in Paris last year with success at Wimbledon, it is little wonder bookmakers Coral have Serena as the 12/5 favourite to once again be the queen of clay.
Coral offer full French Open coverage in both the women’s and men’s tournament, with Novak Djokovic the favourite to take the title currently held by Stan Wawrinka. World number one Serena was on route to delivering a calendar grand slam last year before a shock defeat to Roberto Vinci at the US Open ruined her hopes. Results such as these certainly give her rivals hope when it comes to the major tournaments, and Serena will know only too well that she has to maintain her high standards throughout the whole competition if she is to be successful.

Williams was recently rewarded for her achievements with the prestigious Laurea Award, an honour in which she has collected on three separate occasions. With just under a month remaining until Serena heads to France, a period of adjustment from the hard court season to the dirt in Europe will certainly be pivotal to preparations. With Williams now rarely taking part in WTA events, alongside dad and coach Richard, she will have to work hard to ensure that she does not suffer a similarly shocking exit.

Competition for Serena is likely to come in the form of Victoria Azarenka and Petra Kvitova. At number two and five in the world rankings respectively, both will be confident of moving deep into the tournament despite neither having claimed glory to date. The Belarusian and Czech players are 7/2 and 14/1 respectively with Coral to upset the French Open betting and win on the red dirt of Paris.
