Let the 100/1 carnage commence...

Tuesday 17th May 2022

Good afternoon. It's a Grand Slam week, and that means there's a crackle of excitement in the air here at Ones to Watch HQ. The French Open starts on Sunday...

I’m busy preparing for the clay-court ‘Slam at Roland Garros. In recent years, the annual trip to Paris has been a good one for big-odds backers, to say the least. And if you’re a long-time Ones to Watch EXTRA reader, then you’ll know that big prices are something we specialise in…

To whet the appetite ahead of the upcoming French Open fortnight, just take a look at these odds. The recent finalists from the Women’s event:

Last 5 years - Women's French Open finalists:

WINNER: Barbora Krejcikova 175/1
Runner-Up: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 150/1

WINNER: Iga Swiatek 100/1
Runner-Up: Sofia Kenin 50/1

WINNER: Ashleigh Barty 22/1
Runner-Up: Marketa Vondrousova 40/1

WINNER: Simona Halep 6/1
Runner-Up: Sloane Stephens 50/1

WINNER: Jelena Ostapenko 100/1 
Runner-Up: Simona Halep 4/1

Five of those 10 French Open finalists featured in Ones to Watch – Swiatek, Kenin, Vondrousova, Stephens, and Ostapenko.

With Swiatek now sitting at no.1 in the world, and on a magnificent 28-match winning streak… she’s just 11/10 (2.1) to win Roland Garros 2022. We got 100/1 (101.0) in 2020, which just goes to show – the early bird gets the worm.

Needless to say, I’ll be looking for more of the same at the upcoming French Open. Stay tuned and keep an eye on your emails. I’ll be in touch with more big-odds Grand Slam info for you, very soon…

Enjoy the tennis…

Best wishes,

Tom Wilson
