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.
