French Open 2011

The 2010 French Open is now over but odds are already opened for the 2011 French Open.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are the opening favorites according to both bet365 and Stan James. The 2011 French Open will be played on the clay courts of Roland Garros in Paris, France. If you are a tennis fan, then the French Open is definitely essential on your priority. When you want to experience this tournament at least formerly in your life, then you have got to get hold of those French Open tennis tickets before others do. Tickets for the French Open tournament are everyone's favourites, which mean that they are selling quite rapidly. One of the four grand bang tournaments in professional tennis, the French Open is played on clay.

Hosted by one of the world's most beautiful cities, it is guaranteed to provide a fortnight of excitement for dedicated tennis fans.

The French tennis open championships date back to 1891, but did not become international until 1925. The current men's record holder is a resurgent Rafael Nadal, who claimed back his title from the 2009 defending champion Robin Soderling in a straight sets victory, 6-4, 6-2, and 6-4. If you do bet this far in advance you generally bet longshots or at least long than 10 to 1 and you only bet very conservatively. Players get injured or in the case of Del Potro, they may not return from injury as the same player.

You don't want to commit a big chunk of your bankroll to an event that is a year away and then maybe have to wait for the results for a long time when you actually want to bet on other events in the mean time.
