The French Open is the second Grand Slam of the tennis season and it will start this Sunday, May 27th, from Roland Garros.
Yes, this year the tournament will start unusually on a Sunday instead of the regular Monday and will stretch over 15 days instead of 14 days like the other three Grand Slam tournaments. So make sure you start watching this Sunday.
Both the men and women singles draw are filled with storylines that should give you more than enough reasons to watch this year's tournament.
Also the total purse for the tournament is a whooping $24.6 million, with the winners of both the men's and women's singles each receiving a fat $1.64 million paycheck. Even the not-so-lucky first-round losers don't walk away empty-handed as they each receive a consolation check of $23,670.
With all this said, let's see the odds (according to Bovada.LV) and predictions for the odds-on favorites to win the singles tournaments this year.
