French Open Betting: How to bet on Roland Garros Matches
Go beyond the traditional head to head tennis match betting and you will find a raft of options, meaning there is money to be made.
Set betting is incredibly popular because it can offer value that can be missing when betting on the match result itself. For example, backing Novak Djokovic to win a match will not give you much of a return unless he is facing one of the top four, but betting on him to win 2-1, for example, could bring the value.
Set Handicap, Total Sets, Number of Games in the match and To Win 1st set are other tennis betting markets that enthusiasts can exploit, so betting on this sport is never dull.
No longer are you restricted to betting on the match before the opening serve, you can now wait and see how the match starts to unfold before placing your bet. Bet on who will take the next set or who will win the next point. And what if the pre-match favourite drops the first set?

FRENCH OPEN HISTORY
The French Open – otherwise known as Roland Garros, named after the Stade Roland Garros, where the tournament has been held since 1928 – has a long and complicated history. This has seen the tournament change locations and identities multiple times since its founding in 1891.
Before 1925, the tournament was open to members of French tennis clubs only, and named the Championnat de France. Originating as a men’s event alone, a women’s tournament was added for the first time in 1897 – with doubles tournaments beginning to be added in 1902.
As the Championnat de France, the event changed both location and surface several times over. Initially, it was contested in Puteaux, and played on sand laid out on rubble. In moving on the the Racing Club of France, Paris, it changed surfaces to clay, and remained as such throughout periods of time spent in Bordeaux and Auteuil (Paris.)
After a couple more venue changes, the tournament finally came to rest at the Roland Garros stadium in 1928 – the year it officially became a Grand Slam tournament.
The tournament’s history can be pided up into three stages: Before 1925 (the French club members only event), 1925 – 1967, and the Open Era – which is 1968 and beyond. It was only at the beginning of the Open Era that the tournament dropped its title of the ‘French Championships’ and adopted the major title of the French Open.
In the 1925-1967 era, France’s own Henry Cochet won the most editions of the French Open, achieving four (1926, 1928, 1930, 1932.) Bjorn Borg of the Open Era bested this record with six titles (1974-75, 1978 – 81), a tally which nobody expected would be broken.
Nevertheless, Rafael Nadal has gone above and beyond with his current all time record of 10 Roland Garros trophies (2005-08, 2010-14 and now 2017) The Spaniard also holds the record for most consecutive titles won with his five from 2010 to 2014. This also translates into an all-time record, as Frank Parker, Jaroslav Drobny, Tony Trabert and Nicola Pietrangeli of the pre-Open Era only scored two consecutive victories each.
Over with the women, the legendary Suzanne Lenglen won the most titles before the Open Era, triumphing six times (1920-23, 1925-26.) Chris Evert’s seven title victories hold the record from 1968 onwards (1974-75, 1979-80, 1983, 1985-86). Lenglen also holds the pre-Open Era record for most consecutive titles – four – and shares that status with fellow Frenchwoman Jeanne Matthey (1909-12.) In the Open Era, Monica Seles (1990-92) and Justine Henin (2005-07) share the status.
