Djokovic fans will be getting excited as the Serbian has just created history at this year’s French Open. He has just become the first male player to reach ten consecutive quarter finals and is on course to become part of a select group of players once again.
What are we talking about? If Djokovic does take home the trophy, he will be the holder of all four major championships at once, something he managed back in 2016. Nevertheless, it remains an incredible feat and one that the bookmakers are not writing off by any means. However, if you don’t want to back Djokovic to do the business at Roland Garros, what are some other great bets to consider?
Other Solid French Open 2019 Bets
Djokovic’s main contender for the title is arguably Nadal. He will play his own quarter-final match-up against Japan’s Nishikori, tomorrow. His world-number-six opponent is certainly no slouch, but Nadal looks in sure form and is a favourite to win it in three sets and progress to the semi-finals. This is a fantastic bet for those that want to try and win some money conservatively.
When it comes to looking for a solid outright winner bet, the choice between Djokovic and Nadal is a bit more problematic. Both are in decent form, especially Nadal who secured the Italian Open recently, and both players look up for the cup. Yet, in a week that saw Anthony Joshua hit the canvas on four occasions, anything can happen on this side of the Atlantic as well.
Some Outsiders To Keep Your Eye On
If you want to try your luck with some bigger odds that could pay off, there are some outsiders that may catch your attention. We haven’t even had the chance to mention Roger Federer, who has also made it to the men’s quarter finals. He is not as known for his performances on the clay courts and sometimes skips the clay season to sharpen up for his preferred grass tournaments. However, the Swiss powerhouse is still in the mix and you can even find whopping odds on him winning the tournament at 22/1.
Over in the women’s game, many gamblers are choosing to wage their money on Britain’s Johanna Konta as an outsider. She can be found at odds around 14/19 and you can even bet on her taking home the Wimbledon crown at phenomenal odds of 33/1, if you bet now.
Whoever you decide to put your money on, enjoy the remaining games of the French Open 2019 – it’s bound to serve up a thrilling ending.
