Who will win the 2020 Women’s French Open? Favorites, odds & bets

Will Serena break the record in Roland Garros?

The US Open at Flushing Meadows showed it. If football and other sports can be played, why not tennis too? At the French Open, which will be held from next week, there is already progress that up to 5,000 spectators can access the facility in the Stade Roland Garros.

Who will win the 2020 Women's French Open? Favorites, odds & bets

Nevertheless, most of the matches will take place without a spectator, because fans are only allowed in the stands on the main square, the Court Philippe Chartier. At least the best players will be happy about the support from the stands. Unfortunately, the assembled world leaders are not at the start again, so that the odds of the favorites were mixed up at the women’s French Open.

With Ashleigh Barty, who won last year in Paris and is still number one in the WTA rankings, and Naomi Osaka, who is in third place in the world rankings and recently won the US Open, two of the absolute top favorites are missing. In addition, with Bianca Andreescu and Belinda Bencic, two other players from the top ten will not be at the start.

Prize money at the women’s French Open 2020:

Champion: € 1,600,000
Finalist: € 800,000
Semi-finalist: € 425,250
Quarter-finalist: € 283,500
Round of 16: € 189,000
3rd round: € 126,000
2nd round: € 84,000
1st round: € 60,000

That is why the best betting providers see the Romanian Simona Halep in Roland Garros as the favorite after she was not there in New York and was preparing for sand in Europe. In addition to the Romanian, Garbine Muguruza and Serena Williams are only two women who have already triumphed at the French Open. It is questionable whether tennis grandma Serena William can triumph again at the French Open.

The hottest favorites of the French Open (women) 2020

🇷🇴 Simona Halep
Position in the WTA ranking: 2nd
Success at the French Open: Winner 2018

Simona Halep gets along well on all surfaces, but the Romanian is best rated on the sand. At the French Open, the current number two in the world has already reached the final three times and triumphed for the first time in 2018.

Placing bets on Simona Halep’s win again at the 2020 Women’s French Open seems to be the best choice because, after the forced break, the Romanian was in excellent shape. After all, she ended up winning the two tournaments she took part in.

Halep with 14 wins in a row

There are no better references than the triumphs in Prague and Rome before the French Open. If you include her success in Dubai in the assessment before the forced break, Simona Halep has won the last 14 matches. Before that, she was also in the final of the Australian Open. Despite the forced break, the 29-year-old is delivering a fantastic season.

Odds: 8.25

🇺🇸 Serena Williams
Position in the WTA ranking: 9th
Successes at the French Open: Winner in 2002, 2013, 2015

Age does not pass Serena Williams without a trace. It is only a matter of time before the 39-year-old retiree. She has won everything there is to be won, but she is still chasing the record for Australian Margaret Court, who has 24 individual Grand Slam titles. Serena is currently on 23.

But it will be difficult, especially in Paris, because the French Open is the major tournament that it won the least three times. In addition, their playing is not as powerful as it was a few years ago. This fact can be concealed even less on sand than on faster surfaces. The American is one of the favorites at the betting shops, but overall we are holding back with a forecast of her fourth triumph in Roland Garros at the 2020 women’s French Open.

Mixed results for Serena after the forced break

A preparation for sand did not take place for Serena Williams. The three tournaments she played after the break were all in the US and all on a hard court. Of course, it wasn’t enough to win the tournament. Most recently she was most successful at the US Open when she failed in the semifinals to Victoria Azarenka.

🇪🇸 Garbine Muguruza
Position in the WTA ranking: 15th
Successes at the French Open: 2016 winner

Garbine Muguruza is similar to Simona Halep. She can be successful on all surfaces, but sand is her hobbyhorse. The Spaniard won the French Open in 2016 and is one of the bookmakers’ big favorites again this year. After the forced break, the 26-year-old has held back elegantly.

Muguruza with the rise in shape in Rome

The US Open was her first appearance and it was over in the second round against Tsvetana Pironkova. Most recently, she fine-tuned herself for the French Open on clay in Rome and lost in the semifinals after three sets against Simona Halep. This shows that Garbine Muguruza will be quite competitive when it comes to titles at the Stade Roland Garros.

We think it is conceivable that the odds on a triumph of the Spaniard at the women’s French Open 2020 will be alluded to.

  • “It’s a tough draw, but now I feel good.” – Garbine Muguruza

After their matches in Rome, the form curve increases significantly. Anything can happen to Garbine Muguruza, especially on the sand, especially since she thinks she is in good shape. Behind Simona Halep, the Spaniard is number two among bookmakers.

French Open (women) 2020 – outsiders

Due to the injury-related cancellations by Bencic, Osaka, and Andreescu as well as the abstinence of the defending champion and world number one Ashleigh Barty, a number of supposed outsiders could go far at the French Open. First of all, there is the Eastern European Armada, which comes primarily from the Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Belarus.

The first thing that comes to mind is Victoria Azarenka, who last made it to the finals at the US Open and apparently has her head free for tennis again. The two Czechs Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova are stronger on fast surfaces, but also have their chances on clay. Elina Svitolina should have good chances to get far into the tournament.

German women have no chance in Roland Garros

From a German point of view, it remains to be stated that there will not be much to harvest. Julia Görges is part of the party again, but she is just as unlikely to make the big hit as Angelique Kerber. Nevertheless, in our tennis tips, we will report on how German women are doing in Paris.

Cancellation by top players

🤕 Ashleigh Barty (AUS): WTA ranking: 1 – fear of infection
🤕 Naomi Osaka (JPN): WTA. Ranking: 3 – thigh
🤕 Bianca Andreescu (CAN): WTA ranking: 7 – knee injury
🤕 Belinda Bencic (SUI): WTA ranking: 10 – arm injury

Predictions & betting base trend – who will win the 2020 women’s French Open?

If we look at the odds at the women’s French Open 2020, we don’t see much room for maneuver for the players who are named as favorites after Simona Halep. The Romanian has shown in the last few weeks that she is currently the best clay-court player on the tour and has won in Prague and Rome.

The Romanian has not had to congratulate her opponent on her victory for 14 matches. The triumph at the Stade Roland Garros should probably only go through number one on the seeding list. Garbine Muguruza has the best chance to thwart her plans. The Spaniard has already won the French Open and was most recently on par with Halep in Rome.

Key Facts – Women’s French Open 2020 – Bets

🎾 With Ashleigh Barty, the defending champion and number one in the world is missing.
🎾 Halep, Williams, and Muguruza are the three women in the field who have already triumphed in Paris.
🎾 Simona Halep has recently won two clay-court tournaments.

Serena Williams should have passed her zenith even more clearly on sand than on the fast ground. We still trust Victoria Azarenka or Elina Svitolina to go very far. But when it comes to who will win the tournament, we are clearly placing our bets on Simona Halep at the 2020 Women’s French Open.
