French Open odds: Rafa Nadal is heavy favourite for Roland Garros
Rafa Nadal is looking to win his tenth French Open title – and is the big favourite with almost all bookmakers.
The 30-year-old is back in form and up to 4th in the world.
He lost to Dominc Thiem in Rome earlier this week in the quarter-finals of the BNL d’Italia but beat the Dane in the final of the Madrid Open as well as the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in the build up to Roland Garros.
Thiem also looks a good price at 14/1.
Novak Djokovic is second favourite and can be found around 4/1 with Stan Wawrinka and Thiem next best ahead of Andy Murray.

The Brit, and still world number one, has not won a tournament since The Dubai Open in early March and has struggled in recent weeks.
Muray lost to Thiem in Barcelona in the semi-finals before bombing out early in Madrid and Rome.
He is still priced shortest at 11 longest at 17.
Roger Federer will miss the French Open in a bid to manage his body ahead of the grass season.
He confirmed in a statement earlier this month that he believed playing on clay could harm his body but said he would be back next year.

French Open odds: Andy Murray has struggled so far during the clay season
I will miss the French fans, who have always been so supportive and I look forward to seeing them at Roland Garros next year.
“Regrettably, I’ve decided not to participate in the French Open,” he said.
“I’ve been working really hard, both on and off the court, during the last month but in order to try and play on the ATP World Tour for many years to come I feel it’s best to skip the clay court season this year and prepare for the grass and hard court seasons.
“The start to the year has been magical for me but I need to recognise that scheduling will be the key to my longevity moving forward. Thus, my team and I concluded today that playing just one event on clay was not in the best interest of my tennis and physical preparation for the remainder of the season.”
