The King of Clay

After winning the first Grand Slam of 2022 Rafael Nadal was the 2022 French Open favorite. The Spaniard earned his nickname of “The King of Clay” by winning the Roland Garros 13 times. Nadal defeated Casper Ruud in the final, 6–3, 6–3, 6–0 to win the men’s singles tennis title at the 2022 French Open.

Rafael Nadal’s dominance at the French Open and on clay in general means that he is the man to beat even though he turns 36 during the 2022 tournament. However, as the Spaniard doesn’t have the best betting value, many futures bettors will go with Dominic Thiem. The Austrian has twice been runner-up to Nadal in Paris, so could 2022 finally be his year?


French Open Betting Strategies

The clay is the surface with the slowest pace and highest bounce in tennis, making for long, baseline rallies. As a result, the serve isn’t quite as effective as it is on other surfaces. On clay, good return is vital.

The surface at Stade Roland Garros can favor the most athletic and physically fit players. Any competitors carrying any injuries, even relatively minor ones, could struggle in this physically demanding tournament.

Before betting on the French Open, consider players with a history of success on clay, particularly those that have had good results during the current clay season, such as the Monte-Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open, Madrid Open, and Italian Open.
