Punters will have been happy with the two semi finalist favourites at the French Open coming through their trials. That was Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep, who will now meet up in the final of Roland Garros on Saturday.

Place five or more bets of £5 or more on the French Open in one day and online betting site Paddy Power will give you a free bet of up to £10 to use the next day.

With Serena Williams out of the way early in the tournament, Maria Sharapova hasn’t taken her eye off the prize at all, but it hasn’t been smooth sailing for her to the final. The Russian tennis queen has dropped sets in each of the last three rounds. She got off to slow starts in both the 4th round, quarter final and semi final by losing the first set in each of those matches. But this is Sharapova, who has fight in spades and it has shown through with her battling her way to her third French Open final on the bounce.

She just doesn’t stop, digging deep to produce tremendous resilience and grit. The power of her defence when it matters most, is simply astounding and the experience of the fight-backs should set her up well for the final. It just proves that she can’t be counted out, even if Halep does get a set on the board. Once Sharapova had levelled set in her semi final against Eugenie Bouchard, she just stepped on the accelerator to crush her opponent in the decider. That has happened in exactly the same pattern in the last three rounds.

World number four Simona Halep took a much more straight forward win in her semi final against Germany’s Andrea Petkovic. Young Romanian Halep has yet to drop a set at the championships and after cruising to an easy opening set, she was challenged hard by Petkovic in the second, Halep taking it 7-4 on a tie break. So now, the hottest ticket in tennis, Halep, who was 2013’s most improved player on the WTA, is in her first ever Grand Slam final.

Halep will be going as underdog for the match at a price of 6/4 with online betting site Paddy Power. That is due to her going up against the experience of Maria Sharapova who is odds on at 8/13. That and Sharapova’s tremendous fight of course. Sharapova also leads the head to head against Halep 3-0 and the two have faced each other once before already this season. That was in the final of Madrid on clay, and again a familiar Sharapova pattern occurred, with Halep winning the first set and then the Russian fighting back to take the victory.

There is a pretty high chance of this one running to three sets. Halep doesn’t look as if she is going to get overawed by the occasion at all. She has shown tremendous maturity and composure, but we have yet to see her under the real pressure of dropping a set. If that happens against Sharapova in the final, then it will be a whole different story for her. Halep’s best chance at landing her first Slam is probably by the route of a clean sweep of sets. If Sharapova gets on the board, then the experience of the 2012 champion should probably take the edge.

Sharapova’s two titles that she has won on the WTA this season have both been on clay (occurring in her three tournaments immediately prior to the French Open), while Simona Halep’s sole title was on hard court. That should be another advantage to swing back to Sharapova.

Serena Williams (USA)

Serena Williams is holding firm favoritism at the head of the Women’s French Open tennis betting market. The reigning champion remarkably went in to the recent Rome tournament on the WTA Tour, with doubts over her fitness after having pulled out of the Madrid quarterfinals with a hamstring problem. It cast doubts over her even making it back to Roland Garros for her title defence, but Williams being Williams, she pulled through and powered her way to the Rome title, dropping just one set along the way. It makes it hard to look past her in 2014 French Open betting. The women’s draw has lost one big name, with Victoria Azarenka missing out through injury.

Here we will take a 2014 French Open Tennis betting preview of the main candidates in the Women’s draw for Roland Garros.

Serena Williams 6/5
The American landed what was only her second French Open title last year, beating out Maria Sharapova in the final. The draw is pretty interesting this time around as the two have been drawn together in the same quarter, making for a massive potential showdown in the final eight. If that happens, it would be Williams who would be running as favourite should the two come together. Williams holds a 16-2 head to head record over the Russian. Overall, the draw looks pretty easy for Williams, because the challenge at the semi final stage is likely to be Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska, and Williams should be able to rely on her power to win that, as she holds an 8-0 head to head record over the Pole. Williams again, is looking the best bet.

Li Na 5/1
The biggest benefactor to the top quarter of the draw housing both Maria Sharapova and Serena WIlliams is Li Na. The 2011 French Open Champion has been in fine fettle this season all round, reaching three finals and winning two of them, including her victory in Australian Open over Dominika Cibulkova. The Chinese star warmed up with quarter final appearances on clay in Madrid and Rome and going off as second seed for Roland Garros this year, she has been handed a great draw. The likely top quarter final opponent would be Jelena Jankovic, and the top highest ranked semi final opponents she could run into would be Petra Kvitova or young star Simona Halep. There should be a lot of value in backing Li Na to reach the final, at French Open tennis betting option at 13/8.

Maria Sharapova 7/1
The Russian gained some interest and backing on the French Open tennis betting, with clay court wins in Stuttgart and Madrid as part of her build up. A round of sixteen loss in Rome though against Ana Ivanovic wasn’t the ideal prep, and she would have been shorter odds in the outright market had she received a better draw. Simply the presence of Serena WIlliams in the same quarter is probably going to put a dampener on Sharapova’s challenge. She has already lost twice against her this season, and as much as her gritty defence will keep her hanging around, she would be firm underdog should she meet Williams in the quarters. The 2012 French Open champion will be ruing her drop in the world rankings. It’s likely to cost her a genuine shot at the French Open this year.

Simona Halep 11/1
Where has the young Romanian come from? She has been on fire this season, to the extent where she heads to Roland Garros as fourth seed. Not bad for a player who has never been past the round of 64 at the event. She had that great run to the quarter finals of the Australian Open and proved that wasn’t a fluke when she beat three top ten ranked players on her way to lifting the title in Doha. That was followed by a run to the semis at Indian Wells, and a defeat in the final of Madrid. The Madrid tournament was on clay and the world number four in just in the form of her life at the moment. Ignore an early exit in Rome, she should be ready for a big tournament here and there is a comfortable draw ahead. It is a big step up to win a Grand Slam, but she should be knocking around the final eight.

The dark horses in the field are going to be clay court specialist Sara Errani, who went to the final in Rome recently, Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska and Ana Ivanovic. They all have question marks over their ability to really go on and land such a testing and enduring title on clay, but they are equally the ones who could string a decent run of form together and ride confidence into final eight contention. It was a real mixed bag of result at the Australian Open earlier in the year, expect the French Open to follow a more predictable route of everyone trying to hang on to the coat tails of Serena Williams

Maria Sharapova will be looking to follow up her success in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open last week, with a third Rome title. This week’s WTA Rome tennis betting is another clay court tournament as the build up to the 2014 French Open continues to gather steam. The Russian tennis queen beat Simona Halep in the final of Madrid last week, after favourite Serena Williams pulled out of her quarter final match up with Petra Kvitova. Sharapova and WIlliams are on a collision course this week at the semi final stage, and online betting site Sportingbet have both up as joint 11/4 favourites for WTA Rome tennis betting this week.

However, there has been no commitment from Williams whether or not she will play in Rome this week, because of the thigh injury she picked up last week. The injury could even keep her out of the French Open. So she just may be in ‘see how it goes’ mode this week. Williams would meet Petra Kvitova again in the quarter finals this week if the American sticks at it. Sharapova would go up against the in form Simona Halep again, the star sensation of the WTA Tour this season at the quarter finals. Halep was a losing semi finalist to Williams here last year.

That leaves the bottom half of the draw pretty wide open. The main contenders there are Agnieszka Radwanska, Li Na and Angelique Kerber. Radwanska is top option there after running to the semi finals of Madrid last week, where she was brushed aside by Sharapova. But then Li Na was going well too before being stopped by Sharapova in the quarter final stage. If Radwanska and Li Na come together in the semi finals of the bottom half, it wouldn’t a big surprise this week. That will leave the dangerous floater of Kerber, who hasn’t been able to recapture her strong early season form yet.

WTA Rome Tennis Betting Odds at Sportingbet
Maria Sharapova 11/4, Serena WIlliams 11/4, Li Na 5/1, Simona Halep 13/2, Petra Kvitova 8/1, Agnieszka Radwanska 10/1, Ana Ivanovic 16/1, Angelique Kebre 40/1, Jelena Jankovic 40/1

There is a good tennis betting promotion running at online betting site Sportingbet this week. Place a treble on any tennis matches, and if just one leg of your bet lets you down, then you will get your cash back as a free bet. Sportingbet offer a risk free £50 bet for new customers opening an account with them.

A clutch of big guns will be out at the WTA Mutua Madrid Open this week, with Serena Williams leading the way as Even money favourite. Little surprise there as she is looking to win for the third season on the bounce. She will be pretty happy with the draw too, sitting in the top half as top seed. This is just her second clay court event of the season and she lost her previous match on the surface back in Charleston at the end of March against world number 78 Jana Cepelova. Wouldn’t read a lot into that though and she is actually running as good even money value and well worth a punt this week to defend her title.

Not a lot of threat for her in the top half of the raw. Petra Kvitova is floating around, as is Jelena Jankovic and the ever improving Simona Halep, who is probably the best outside shot in the entire field at 12/1. Well worth an easy way punt on here. She would avoid Williams until the semi final.

Down in the bottom half of the draw, with Angelique Kerber withdrawing from her first round match,there is probably good reason to jump on Agnieszka Radwanska to win her quarter. The Polish star still hasn’t managed to win a title this year and the reason why she wouldn’t be backed heavier in the Madrid field is because Maria Sharapova will probably be in her way at the semi final stage. The two met back in Stuttgart on clay towards the end of April, and Sharapova breezed it in two sets.

Sharapova is running well enough at the moment, after a semi final appearance in Miami and a win on clay in Stuttgart to suggest that she will be knocking around the final four this week. At a price of 5/1 to win a tournament, then there is big value in the Russian. After all, she did make it to the final here last year, stopped by Serena Williams. It is not a stretch of the imagination to see that happening again this term although there could be a tricky quarter against Li Na to deal with first.

WTA Mutua Madrid Open Tennis Betting Odds
Serena William Evens, Maria Sharapova 5/1, Li Na 6/1, Simon Halp 12/1, Agnieszka Radwanska 20/1, Ana Ivanovic 25/1, Bar 33/1

Maria Sharapova

Couple of WTA Tennis betting events going on this week, one in Marrakech, and one in Stuttgart. It is the Stuttgart one which is going to be grabbing all of the attention this week as there is a far more interesting field out, including some top ten players. Maria Sharapova is back in action and trading as 4/1 favourite as the season shifts from hard court over to clay. This will be the 21st WTA level tournament of the year and the action will be on the red stuff for the next seven weeks, all building up to the French Open of course.

Sharapova is the defending champion having won it for the last two years, so she is going to be a big draw. This is the first time that she has been out since an appearance in Miami in mid March where she lost in the semi finals against Serena Williams. So she may be a bit rusty out of the gates and there and she could have a very early test against Agnieszka Radwanska in the quarter finals. Poland’s Radwanska is trading at 5/1, just behind the threat of Sharapova, who is holding supremacy because of her track record at the event.

Radwanska has been going along nicely this season and in only two of her outings has she fallen short of the quarter finals. While she keeps getting close to titles, an issue which has plagued her a bit is actually converting when the title is in sight. He last action was a couple of wins on clay against fairly low ranked opposition in the Fed Cup in mid April, so nothing to gauge from that. Would back Sharapova probably if these two meet in the quarters, just because of the heavier hitting and better defence.

Another one of the seven top ten players that are in Germany this week is Simona Halep, who has been having a glittering season. She hasn’t played since her semi final loss to Radwanska at Indian Wells in early March, so expect some transition time to clay. The other one to watch would have been Dominika Cibulkova, who has really been on top of her game this season, but she, along with Caroline Wozniacki withdrew. It could leave a nice opening for Germany’s own Angelique Kerber to have a good run this week.

WTA Stuttgart Tennis Betting Odds
Maria Sharapova 41, Simona Halep 5/1, Agnieszka Radwanska 6/1, Angelique Kerber 8/1, Petra Kvitova 9/1, Jelena Jankovic 10/1, Ana Ivanovic 12/1.

WTA Cincinnati Tennis Betting Info
The women’s tour got back to a bit of predictability against last week as Serena Williams powered her way to yet another title, the 54th of her career. She took control in Toronto for the Premier Tier event and now heads the field again as the next Premier Tier tournament swings into action at the Western and Southern Open. Will it be another procession for Williams, who has actually never won this Ohio event?

WTA Cincinnati Tennis Betting Favourite
Serena Williams yet again heads up the field as 4/5 favourite. She beat Sorana Cirstea in the final of Toronto last week. Granted, along the way, she didn’t really come under any threat and met up with Agnieszka Radwanska in the semi’s and prevailed, all as was fully expected. She was expected to meet someone of a higher standing than young Cirstea in the final, but the big seeds on the opposite side of the draw just couldn’t get it together. There is little change from this week’s draw to last week. Again the projected semi final opponent for Williams will be Radwanska or Na Li. Little to stop the Williams juggernaut really and strong 4/5 favourite with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

WTA Cincinnati Tennis Betting Tips
Where to look for tips this week? The battle in the second quarter between Agnieszka Radwanska and Na Li should be a good one. Both went to the semi finals in Toronto last week, so are showing good form. Li is generally worth watching on the hard courts and she showed up well last week, making a good return to form. Again, Radwanska produced some great stuff during the tournament, looking a class act, but again she just doesn’t seem to have it at the business end of events again. They should duke it out for a place in the semi against Williams so are both value to win the second quarter. Would lean towards Poland’s Radwanska, she produced some great tennis last week. Na though, is the defending champion, but just a little more inconsistent.

Over on the other side of the draw this week, starting in the third quarter, we have the return of Maria Sharapova. The Russian missed Toronto last week and is looking to get back in to the swing of things. That may hinder her a bit this week, being away from competitive action, but looking at the draw, there really shouldn’t be any issue with her getting to the quarter finals. But as the draw is working in favour of Williams here, there is a potential semi final clash against Victoria Azarenka for Sharapova, which will be a massive battle, and asking either Sharapova or Azarenka to come through a tough semi like that and then take on Williams really puts the ball firmly in the court of the American.

Sharapova has history, winning in Cincinnati in 2011, something neither Williams nor Azarenka has done in the Premier Tier event. The closest challenge to Azarenka in the fourth quarter should be Petra Kvitova, who was stopped in the quarter finals of Toronto last week by an inspired Cirstea (who went on to beat Ni La in the semi’s). Kvitova showed more of her old self last week, but asking her to get past Azarenka and potentially Sharapova and then Williams to win the tournament, just isn’t going to happen.

Maria Sharapova

Wimbledon 2013 Tennis betting has arrived and the power of Serena Williams is expected to sweep all before her. But the big field will be battling it out over the next fortnight for the Grand Slam titles and the action looks set to be competitive. As always, consider looking at live in-play match betting as well as other options such as Quarters betting for extra value. Here we take a look at the Women’s Draw for 2013 Wimbledon betting.

There is a great promotion on the women’s Wimbledon draw at online bookmaker Stan James. It is often hard to find new promotions on anything but the women’s draw, but Stan James are running a Money Back Special, all focusing on Stan James. If Maria Sharapova wins the Wimbledon title this year, then the online bookmaker will refund all losing outright bets placed on the women’s draw. Not bad value really and worth taking as it is there. New customers registering an account and placing a qualifying first bet can get a free £10 bet from Stan James as a welcome bonus.

Serena Williams 4/9 with online bookmaker Stan James
Can anyone stop Williams here? After powering her way to the French Open title she is red hot favourite to get another Wimbledon title under her belt. She was pretty near flawless in Paris and she will be heading to London as firm favourite on the back of a 31 match winning streak. She is also the defending champion after beating a battling Agnieszka Radwanska in the final last season. Williams is going for her sixth Wimbledon title and there is a little bit of a tricky round ahead of her. Jie Zheng and Sabine Lisicki are in her quarter. Also in the top half she could run into any of Angelique Kerber, Li Na and even Agnieszka Radwanska again in the semi finals. The key word is tricky, and Zheng really had Williams rattled at last year’s Wimbledon. But the American has all the power, form and experience to take her all the way. There is full focus on her here and it is going to take some brave punters to go against here. Scarily overwhelming favourite, just look at the odds of the second favourite.

Maria Sharapova 6/1 at online bookmaker Stan James
Incredible long odds for a second favourite, especially when it is one of the best players on the WTA. The Russian has been to five finals this season, winning two of them. Worryingly for Sharapova, she has lost against Williams five times already this season, and the American is just too tough of a nut to crack for her. She could get some extra help from the speed of the Wimbledon courts and perhaps be able to move Williams around a little bit more if they do meet in the final. The path ahead for her really isn’t too difficult, especially is she gets her a-game going quickly and her first serves are right up there. A battler all the way and if she fails to make the final four on the grass then it will be a major shock. Still, her shocking head to head record against Williams makes her tremendous value.

Victoria Azarenka 8/1
Many are liking the chances of Vika here. The Belarusian is probably enjoying a bit of time flying under the radar in the Wimbledon build up as all focus is on Sharapova and mainly Williams. Azarenka has at least beaten Williams this year. She actually has the power to withstand a barrage from Williams and punch back as well. She has the complete all round game to do so and she is comfortably at home on grass so there is not going to be a problem them. Azarenka has been to the Wimbledon semi final in the last two seasons. There could be a massive date down the line in the semi finals against Maria Sharapova in what would be a fantastic clash to watch. Azarenka is actually the number two seed and won the Australian Open at the start of the year, so has it in her. Makes just as good value as Sharapova (perhaps a little more as she matches up against Williams better) to cause an upset.

Things get a little bit blurred from then on out and that is reflected in the betting odds. There are some good players around who are more than capable of winning a Grand Slam, but form has just deserted most of them. Falling into this bracket of the chasing pack behind the big three are Petra Kvitova, Li Na, Agnieszka Radwanska and Angelique Kerber. What should make for a fascinating top half is that Na, Radwanska and Kerber are all up there with Serena Williams. Germany’s Kerber has the short straw as she is in the same quarter as Williams so that makes her an even longer shot. Unfortunately Kerber has been a bit short of her clinical form that really propelled her forward last season.

So there should be a good race between Radwanska and Na to potentially meet Williams in the semi final. Radwanska, one of the cleverest players on the WTA when it comes to tactical prowess and shot selection has really been struggling for form. She took a shock first round exit in Eastbourne in her warm up. Out of form and could be upset early, sadly. So that leaves her battling with Na, who has also been struggling for form lately to really win the quarter. Na started the season with a real bang but has fallen away lately. So nothing too much to split Radwanska and Na. Will it be Na’s heavy hitting flat ground strokes over Radwanska’s far lesser power, but better shot selection?

Serena Williams (USA)

Trying to find an attractive betting angle in the women’s singles at Wimbledon, which gets under way next week, is proving more difficult that finding the actual winner at present.

Let’s be honest Serena Williams, who at 31 is at an age when most of her contemporaries are contemplating retirement or an easier life on the seniors’ double tour, looks head and shoulders above the rest at the moment but only the big-hitters are going to get involved at the best 4/7 (sportingbet) for the American to win her sixth singles title at the All-England club and her fourth in five years. The women’s seedings have followed the WTA ranking to the letter so the defending champion is seeded to meet Victoria Azarenka in the final. The Belarusian is still awaiting a first appearance in a Wimbledon final but has twice reached the semi-final stage and did play Williams in last year’s US Open Final, where she took her to three sets. Azarenka is 8/1 with bwin and sportingbet. Maria Sharapova, beaten in straight sets by Williams in the French Open Final, is seeded three and 92/11 on betfair but her defeat at Roland Garros may have affected the Russian’s fragile confidence.

Unlike the men’s singles, on which there are plenty of alternative markets, bookmakers aren’t trying hard to drum up interest on the women’s tournament but you can have a special double price with betfair on both singles events with a Williams/Djokovic combination available at 22/7. Treating Williams as a banker, a Williams/Murray double is 57/10 while a Williams/Federer win is 19/2. It says much that 888sport will lay you 33/19 the field against Serena winning again. As far as I can see, only Stan James have a money back offer involving the women’s singles at present offering to refund outright losing singles bets if Maria Sharapova goes all the way. The same offer applies to the men’s singles if Andy Murray wins and that promise is matched by BetVictor, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

It always rains at Wimbledon but not even the British climate can guarantee two weeks without some sunshine in June and July so Betfred are probably confident they won’t be paying out on the 250/1 against a rain delay on every day of the tournament.

Stan James

Online bookmaker Stan James have a great double promotion running for 2013 Wimbledon betting. To celebrate the start of the action at SW19 this summer, Stan James have two massive Money Back Specials on the outright winner markets.

Naturally there will be a huge backing for Andy Murray in his home Grand Slam and the Wimbledon crowds may give him that extra boost. The US Open champion will be hoping to go one better than he did last season, when he lost in the final against Roger Federer. Murray returned to action with a win on grass at Queens and should be one of the front runners to take the title on Centre Court this term. His win at Wimbledon in the final of the 2012 Olympic Games should also enhance his chances.

If Andy Murray wins the men’s tournament, then online bookmaker  Stan James will refund all lost stakes on the Mens’ Outright Market. The maximum refund on this market is the return of a free bet up to £50, if Murray claims the title. However, there is a double Money Back Special offer available, as the bookmaker takes in the Women’s’ Draw as well.

If Maria Sharapova win the Women’s title, then online bookmaker Stan James will refund all losing bets on the Women’s Outright Market. Again, the maximum value on the Money Back Special is up to £50 as well. After going to the final of the French Open, will the Russian tennis queen be able to reign supreme and manage to lift her second Wimbledon title?

So with the coverage from these Money Back Special offers on Wimbledon 2013 from Stan James, whoever you are backing for glory, it will be worth taking your outright bets with the bookmaker. The knowledge that you will get your lost stakes refunded as a free bet if Sharapova or Murray win their respective draws.

This Wimbledon 2013 promotion is available until Monday, June 24th, at 11:00 am BST. New customers opening an account with the popular bookmaker can get a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus when registering.

Serena Williams (USA)

The expect final showdown in the women’s draw for the French Open title seeing Maria Sharapova v Serena Williams betting lined up. The final will be played on Saturday, June 8th between the two powerhouses in the game at the moment. Both players will be looking for their second French Open titles of their career. It is American Williams who is going to be heading the field as favourite, given her strong form at Roland Garros and on top of that, a tremendous head to head record against the Russian.

2013 French Open Women’s Final Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet Victor
Serena Williams 1/5, Maria Sharapova 4/1

Williams powered her way to the final after overcoming clay expert Sara Errani in their semi final matchup, Williams powering to a 6-0 6-1 victory. It was almost a perfect display from Williams and she will make a formidable final opponent for Sharapova. Williams is back in the final at Roland Garros for the first time since winning the event for the only time in 2002. Given her incredible form this season, dominating pretty much all before her, she started the second Grand Slam of the year as overwhelming favourite and it is no surprise that she is in the final.

But Sharapova’s progress to the final needed a much bigger effort from the Russian. She went up against Victoria Azarenka and after Sharapova had cruised to an opening set win, the Belarusian hit back and things looked even at the start of the third set, with both players breaking. Sharapova couldn’t quite get her first serve going and served up 11 double faults in the match, something which will be punished against Williams if the count is that high. There were big momentum shifts both ways in the Williams v Azarenka semi final, but the Russian just had enough to squeak over the line. It was an unpredictable performance from Sharapova, but even all the faults and misplaced shots couldn’t stop the defending champion getting back to the final.

For your Maria Sharapova v Serena Williams betting, the head to head is all in favour of the AMerican. Williams leads 13-2. Even more worryingly for Sharapova, is that she has lost the last twelve matches in a row against Williams, already suffering two final defeats this season in Miami and Madrid, the latter on clay. These are the best two clay court players around at the moment, and even though Sharapova has a higher win percentage on the dirt, Williams is the strong favourite for French Open tennis final betting.
