French Open – Simply Smashing!

The French Open begins this Sunday May 26 until the 9th June 2013. This particular Grand Slam has often produced some unpredictable results and champions over the years.

Amongst the champions and bookie favourites that have been ousted from the tournament over the years are Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Noval Djokovic and Venus Williams.

Will this years tournament at Roland Garros produce a surprise result or will the favourites take home the prize?

Regular readers will know we played a prediction game with the 2013 Australian Open tennis tournament. If you had fun trying to win free lottery vouchers guessing the Australian Open champions then keep reading...


Will Serena ever lose?


Well, she did lose this time last year when Virginie Razzano knocked her out in the first round. If her performance on Sunday against 83rd-ranked Anna Tatishvili is anything to go by then she looks set for a smashing tournament. 

Serena is currently ranked No.1 in the world has been unbeatable lately and arrives in Paris having won a career-high 24 consecutive matches.


Rafael Nadal
the hot favourite

Nadal is the hot favourite in the men's tournament at the moment and most likely to see his reign continue in the French Open this year.  There is a lot of pressure on the Spanish number one especially after sliding to third rank in the global rankings and he will look to close down the gap by securing the points with the successful title defence.


For the love of money


Prize money at the French Open will rise significantly for both singles champions and players who lose in some of the early rounds.

Roland Garros organizers said the overall total for the tournament will go from $24.6 million (18.7 million Euros) last year to $28.7 million (22 million Euros), with winners receiving $1.96 million (1.5 million Euros) compared to $1.64 million (1.25 million Euros) in 2012. Further increases totalling another $13 million is expected by 2016.
