French Open 2023: Predictions and Betting Preview

The French Open is the next Grand Slam tournament of 2023. Fans of tennis will be able to bet on every match of the tournament here at and enjoy a huge variety of betting markets. Here, we take a look at the top players that you may want to keep an eye on during the competition and when planning your bets.

French Open Predictions – Top 5 Men’s Singles Players

Novak Djoković

The front-runner in our predictions and the bookies’ favourite is Novak Djoković. The Serb won this year’s Australian Open in January, tying his Grand Slam total of 22 with Rafael Nadal. If Djoković wins the French Open this year, he will become the outright men’s tennis player with the most Grand Slam successes in history.

Djoković is the favourite to win the French Open this year. Perhaps one of the reasons why is the uncertainty of whether Rafael Nadal will compete or not. If he does not enter the Grand Slam tournament, or is playing through injury, Djoković’s chances of winning will certainly increase.

Rafael Nadal

The defending champion is the most successful French Open winner of all time. Rafael Nadal has won the Roland Garros tournament a record 14 times and has a total 22 Grand Slam titles. Like Djoković, he is aiming to win another Grand Slam and become the player with the most titles to his name.

Nadal may or may not feature in this year’s French Open. The Spaniard has not played a match since losing in the Round of 64 in Australia earlier this year. If he does participate and looks on form, history suggests there is no stopping Nadal from winning his 15th French Open.

Carlos Alcaraz

The US Open champion will celebrate his 20th birthday a few weeks before the opening game of the Roland Garros tournament. Carlos Alcaraz made history last year by becoming the youngest US Open winner since Pete Sampras (1990) and the first teenager in the Open Era to top the men’s ATP Rankings.

During his career, he has already defeated both Novak Djoković and Rafael Nadal. Given how his early career has panned out, we could see the Spaniard go on to break all sorts of records, including the total number of Grand Slams that either Djoković or Nadal have achieved. Alcaraz had to withdraw from the Australian Open due to a hamstring injury but if he is in peak physical condition, he has a strong chance of winning the French Open this year.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Another good shout and player to look out for is Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek tennis player was unfortunate to miss out on the Australian Open earlier this year, after reaching the final. He was defeated by Novak Djoković. Tsitsipas had also reached the French Open final in 2021, losing that final to Djoković as well.

If luck is on his side, the 2019 Greek Male Athlete of the Year may go all the way this time. It would be his first ever Grand Slam triumph, and at 24 years of age, it would not be out of the question as he enters his prime.

Casper Ruud

The final one to watch is Norwegian 24-year-old, Casper Ruud. He missed out on the French Open last year, losing the final in straight sets to Rafael Nadal. In fact, 2022 was his most successful year to date, reaching the US Open final as well. As mentioned above, his competitor in that final was Carlos Alcaraz, and he lost by three sets to one, after taking the first.

Ruud may have a better 2023 if he can go all the way in Roland Garros. He is currently fifth in the ATP rankings and he could have topped the rankings if he had won the US Open last summer. This time around, Ruud will be looking to correct his mistakes in the final, if he reaches it for the second consecutive year.

French Open Predictions – Top 5 Women’s Singles Players

Iga Swiatek

The Polish defending French Open champion is the number one favourite to win the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen this year. If she does so, it will be her third French Open triumph, after winning the tournament in 2020 and 2022. Swiatek has won three Grand Slam trophies so far, winning the French Open twice and the US Open last summer. It is quite an impressive feat, considering she is just at the start of her career at 21 years of age.

Here at, Swiatek is considered the favourite to win this year’s edition of the tournament. She is the current WTA world number one in women’s tennis and accumulated a 37-match winning streak in 2022.

Ons Jabeur

The Tunisian Ons Jabeur is backed as one of the players that could go all the way for the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen trophy. She is currently fourth in the WTA rankings and had a strong end to last year’s Grand Slam tournaments. Unfortunately for Jabeur, she is yet to win a Grand Slam at the age of 28.

However, she came as close as ever last year, reaching the final of both Wimbledon and the US Open. In the Wimbledon final, Kazakhstani tennis player, Elena Rybakina, defeated her. And, as mentioned above, she lost the US Open in straight sets to Swiatek, the final set decided by a tiebreak. If there was ever a time for Jabeur to win her first Grand Slam, the French Open this year may be her chance to make a breakthrough.

Elena Rybakina

Born in Moscow, Elena Rybakina chose to play for Kazakhstan in 2018. She is backed as one of the favourites to win the French Open this year. If she does manage to win the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen, it will be her second Grand Slam victory, having won the 2022 Wimbledon final.

Rybakina is only 23 years old, turning 24 right after the French Open finishes and before Wimbledon begins. She is currently seventh in the WTA rankings and she could see her ranking improve should she manage to do well in France.

Aryna Sabalenka

The French Open will be an opportunity for Aryna Sabalenka to win her second Grand Slam of the year. The Belarusian tennis player is currently in second place in the WTA rankings. She won the Australian Open earlier this year, defeating Elena Rybakina in the final after losing the first set.

It was her first Grand Slam women’s singles final. She had previously reached the semi-finals of Grand Slam tournaments on three separate occasions. Sabalenka reached the US Open semi-finals in 2021 and 2022 and the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2022.

Coco Gauff

The player that has an outside chance of winning the French Open is Coco Gauff. At only 19 years of age, Gauff is one of the tournament youngsters looking to claim their first ever Grand Slam triumph. The American is currently sixth in the WTA rankings and came close to her first ever Grand Slam win in last year’s edition of the tournament. However, she lost the final in straight sets to Swiatek.

To date, it is her only appearance in a Grand Slam final. Her best result, excluding the final, was reaching the quarterfinals of the US Open. Although she is still only a teenager, Gauff began playing tennis professionally in 2018, at the age of 14. One would not put it past her to reach the final again and this time, claim her first title.

How to Bet on the French Open

Here at, we have betting markets available for every single game of the French Open. However, if you are going to bet on the winner of the tournament before a ball is served on the Roland Garros courts, you should visit our Outright betting markets for the men’s and women’s editions of the competition.

The French Open will start on 28 May and the final will be played on 11 June. The main draw of the Grand Slam tournament will include 128 male and female players who have made it through the qualifying rounds.

Betting on the outright winner of the French Open offers generous odds, even if you bet on the defending champion. One of the reasons why outright odds are so generous is that the tournament lasts two weeks, and anything can happen during this time. It is worth taking the time to explore all of our betting markets carefully as you never know what opportunities you may spot. Furthermore, more markets will become available as the tournament comes nearer, so be sure to keep a careful eye on them.
