Held at the Stade de Roland Garros in Paris, the French Open has quickly gained momentum over the years to become one of the most prestigious and anticipated events on the tennis circuit. With increasing media coverage surrounding the competition every year, this is the largest tennis tournament on clay - the only Grand Slam to be held on this surface since the US Open changed to hard courts in 1978.
Clay is known to be one of the slowest surfaces to play on which, particularly at the highest level, requires a specific playing strategy, and therefore favours certain players - for professionals, the title of ‘clay court specialist’ is often granted to players who stand out on this surface.

The 2022 French Open at Roland Garros will see the top male and female players heading to Paris. This is the second Grand Slam event of the year. The first was the Australian Open and was won by Rafael Nadal. He has had some injury problems since then but the Spaniard has won 13 times at Roland Garros and is expected to again go well.
The defending champion is Novak Djokovic and he showed good form earlier in May when winning the Rome Masters. There are many challengers for the men's singles this year. Stefanos Tsitsipas nearly won the final last year and has again been victorious in Monte Carlo and was runner-up in Rome. Carlos Alcaraz has been climbing the world rankings this year and will be a major threat. Alexander Zverev. Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud also fancy their chances of success at Roland Garros.

At the last Roland, for example, an average of 35.2 games per game was raised, a potential score of 7-6 / 7-6 / 6-3. For your sports betting on this new edition, bet on games rich in games, it could hit the mark.
Another interesting statistic on this famous Roland Garros, the number of expeditious meetings. For many years now, it is indeed not uncommon to see matches end on scores of 3-0. This was the case in 50% of matches last year, compared to 33% of matches in four sets, and 17% of matches in five sets. For the 2022 edition of this season, do not be afraid to bet on results of 3-0 (or 0-3), which could well allow you to collect a few euros.
Finally, to conclude with this statistical aspect of the French Open, note also that the winner of the first set had won the match in 82% of cases last year, that only 6% of the matches had gone up from 0-2 to 3-2, or that tie-breaks were especially frequent during the third set (17% of matches).

Rafael Nadal always has to be on the shortlist but is yet to win a clay court tournament this year. Stefanos Tsitsipas led Djokovic two sets to love in the 2021 final but failed to clinch the match. He's again had a good clay court season and will aim to go one better this year. The new kid on the block is Carlos Alcaraz who has had a fantastic 2022 so far. He will be in contention for his first ever Grand Slam title. Players such as Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Casper Ruud will also be in contention to win at Roland Garros.
