Rafael Nadal may have lost an epic Australian Open Final against Roger Federer but produced his best Grand Slam performance for a long time in Melbourne and is now only a best 11/4 to win the French Open for a 10th time in the spring.
Nadal’s Grand Slam title drought will have been extended to three years by the time the action at Roland Garros gets under way but the Spaniard, still only 30, is the ‘King Of Clay’ and most bookmakers have reservations about Novak Djokovic, badly out of sorts over the last six months, at present.

Novak Djokovic is a best 7/4 with Betfred for the French Open with Federer a massive 25/1 with Betway. The Swiss has reached the final four times in Paris but has lost on each occasion. Andy Murray is 4/1 in one place and reached the final for the first time last year. But Roland Garros will not be his first priority this year and he looked very leg-weary in Melbourne. It’s easy to forget how much the Scot put into 2016 and he’ll be recharging his batteries ready for another assault on Wimbledon.
Juan Martin Del Potro has missed the start of the season but his general 50/1 quote is surely way too big. He will return to action in a few weeks’ time and should be up to speed by May. He looked back to his best last year and is not far off the big four when on his game – he beat both Murray and Djokovic in the second half of last season. The 2015 French Open champion Stan Wawrinka is a best 10/1 at present.
