When & Where is the French Open 2022?

It’s back to the familiar setting of Roland Garros in Paris for the French Open 2022. The iconic clay court tournament runs from May 22nd through to June 5th, 2022. The Women’s Final is scheduled for June 4th.

French Open Betting Tips – Outright Favourite

Iga Swiatek is a massive 10/11 odds-on favourite for French Open tips 2022* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power).

The Polish star and former French Open champion has been on an absolute tear of form in 2022.

The 20-year-old current World Number One is the one to beat at the moment.

She has won the last five tournaments she has entered.

The last time that Swiatek lost a match was in the Round of 16 at the Dubai Duty Free Championships in February against Jelena Ostapekno.

It has been a run of 28 straight match wins by Swiatek since then.

She has been unplayable and it’s not minor titles either that she has picked.

In this staggering turn of form, Swiatek has taken the likes of the Indian Wells, the Miami Open and the Internazionali BNL D’Italia titles, all WTA1000 events.

She has beaten just about every other main contender who she opposes in the 2022 French Open draw during this sequence.

In Italy recently she beat Victoria Azarenka, Bianca Andreescu, Aryna Sabalenka and Ons Jabeur on her way to the title, not dropping a set.

In total, Swiatek has only dropped one set in claiming her last three titles.

So Swiatek is the one player that no one wants to meet right now. The 2020 French Open champion could make a brilliant season even better.

History of the French Open

The French Open was first played in 1891 and through the early editions of the tournament, it was played on sand. The first time it was played on the famous clay was in 1908.

The Grand Slam moved to Roland Garros in 1928 and the first time that there was a version for women was in 1897 (French Championship).

The Open era was introduced in 1968 when professionals could start playing.

Among the winners of the early Open era there was Maragert Court, Billie Jean before Chris Evert’s brilliant seven French Open titles.

Evert’s French Open title haul has never been matched.

What happened at the French Open 2021?

There was a stunning run from the unseeded Barbora Krejcikova at last year’s French Open who toppled Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the Final.

That was the first major singles success for Krejcikova. She took full advantage of a draw which really fell apart in terms of top seeds falling early.

Krejcikova was responsible for knocking out fifth seed Elina Svitolina in the Third Round.

Krejcikova beat Coco Gauff in the quarter-finals before holding off Maria Sakkari in an epic semi-final duel. The Czech player then needed a deciding set to get past Pavlyuchenkova in the Final.

There was only one top-ten seed in the quarter-finals of the 2021 French Open.

That was was defending champion, Iga Swiatek. Swiatek would lose that quarter final match against Maria Sakkari.

It was the fourteenth straight edition in which the defending champion had failed to hold onto their crown.

Other contenders French Open Tips 2022

We have already had a look at the big threat in the French Open 2022 draw, that is Iga Swiatek. But it is worth casting an eye over the rest of the field because as we saw last year, the French Open is generally a wide-open affair.

Ons Jabeur

Ons Jabeur has never made it past the fourth round at the French Open. She’s only been to two Slam quarter finals in her career. But the Tunisian star does bring some form to the table.

She recently lifted the Madrid Open title and was a runner up to Swiatek at the Italian Open. That’s some hot clay from out of the blue from her. Jabeur is a 12/1 contender in French Open odds* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

Simona Halep

2018 French Open champion Simona Halep is in the mix as well as a 12/1 option in French Open betting odds* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Her last big title came at the 2020 Italian Open and because of injury largely, she has really struggled with performance levels the last two years. But there was an encouraging semi final at Indian Wells and a quarter final at the Madrid Open this year by her.

Halep is still one of the best natural clay court players there is.

Paula Badosa

Young Spaniard Paula Badosa is one of the rising stars of the game and she enters the main draw of the French Open for just the third time.

She put in a terrific run to reach the quarter finals last year. She’s only going to get better and better. The 24-year-old is a quote of 18/1 for the title* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

Maria Sakkari

From 18/1 in the French Open odds 2022 Maria Sakkari is worth a look* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power).

The Greek star was a losing semi-finalist last year at Roland Garros. She recently made it to the quarters of the Italian Open to lift her clay form a bit.

Sakkari is seeking a first Grand Slam title but she is not someone who can easily be counted out. She has the energy levels and abilities to outstay a lot of opponents.

Aryna Sabalenka

Is another player that is looking for her first Grand Slam title. Like Sakkari, she reached the semi finals of two Slams in 2021.

So her stock is rising and a good semi final berth at the recent Italian Open will give her a chance.

Clay isn’t her best surface because of the ball being slower off the surface, but she’s capable of being in the mixer at 20/1 in French Open tennis odds* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Emma Raducanu French Open Odds 2022

In her first full season, the WTA things haven’t gone too great for Britain’s Emma Raducanu.

The physicality of the season has seen her have to deal with a lot of injury issues.

After storming her way to a remarkable US Open title last year, the first-ever qualifier at Flushing Meadows to do so, expectations are high.

Raducanu is ranked 12th in the world at the moment and after a flurry of coaching changes since that Grand Slam title plus only a W7 L9 singles record this year, this looks beyond her.

To be fair, Raducanu has looked good on the clay in the action that she has produced.

But this may not be the year for her at the French Open.

Emma Raducanu is a quote of 50/1 in French Open Tennis Odds* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power).

French Open Tips – First Quarter

Iga Swiatek 2/5
Simona Halep 9/2
Karolina Pliskova 16/1
Jessica Pegula 16/1
Jelena Ostapenko 18/1
28/1 bar
* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

There is a blockbuster lineup in the first quarter of the Women’s French Open Draw. Iga Swiatek is housed there as the top seed but there’s also former champion Simona Halep knocking around, plus Karolina Pliskova and Jess Pegula.

A potential fourth round clash between Swiatek and Halep is a mouthwatering prospect.

French Open Tips – Second Quarter

Paul Badosa 11/4
Aryna Sabalenka 7/2
Daria Kasatkina 11/2
Elena Rybakina 5/1
Danielle Collins 11/2
Veronika Kudermatova 10/1
Yulia Putintseva 12/1
16/1 bar
* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

The second quarter is headed up by Spain’s Paul Badosa who is as comfortable on the clay as anyone, so should be a force to be reckoned with. But there are other big players in this second waiting to pounce like Aryna Sabalenka and Danielle Collins.

French Open Tennis Tips – Third Quarter

Ons Jabeur 5/2
Maria Sakkari 4/1
Amanda Anisimova 7/1
Bianca Andreescu 7/1
Belinda Bencic 17/2
Emma Raducanu 17/2
Naomi Osaka 14/1
18/1 bar
* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

Bet at Paddy Power

The third section is equally as exciting too with Ons Jabeur and Maria Sakkari potentially fighting it out for supremacy here.

This is where Emma Raducanu is situated as well but there are a lot of other big names in this section. Naomi Osaka, Petra Kvitova and Bianca Andreescu are just a few others worthy of mention in this fiercely competitive section.

Women’s French Open Tennis Tips – Fourth Quarter

Cori Gauff 9/2
Barbora Krejcikova 11/2
Garbine Muguruza 6/1
Victoria Azarenka 6/1
Anett Kontaveit 7/1
Jil Teichmann 7/1
16/1 bar
* (betting odds recorded at 21:44 GMT on May 21st, 2022 at Paddy Power)

Bet at Paddy Power

The fourth quarter looks wide open as there is no one clear leading contender in the section by any means. Defending champion Barbora Krejickova could have a chance to work her way into her title defence, while Garbine Muguruza can mount a big challenge.
