The second Grand Slam event of 2022 is almost upon us as the French Open’s qualifying draw is already underway, and the men’s side of the draw is as open as it has ever been.

There are three main favorites for the Roland Garros title and some dark horse candidates to consider.

Novak Djokovic is favored to win the tournament after winning the Masters 1000 title in Rome last week without dropping a set. The world No. 1 can be found at +175 over at PointsBet or DraftKings to earn his 21st Grand Slam title.

Just a week before Djokovic win his title in Italy, he was defeated in Madrid in a third set tiebreaker by the man with the second-shortest odds to take home the French Open title, 19-year old Carlos Alcaraz.

The Spanish superstar has taken the tennis world by storm this year, winning four of the seven tournaments he’s played in, including two Masters 1000 titles.

Alcaraz is listed at +200 at PointsBet and +210 at FanDuel/DraftKings, but his best odds can be accessed at WynnBET, who has him at +240 to win his first Slam title.

Of course, no French Open contenders list would be complete without the king of clay, Rafael Nadal. The “king of clay” is the third-favorite to win his second consecutive Slam event, but he’s in that position due to the health concerns that he is dealing with.

Nadal battled a rib injury at the end of the hard court season, causing him particular issues at Indian Wells. He was defeated in Madrid by Alcaraz, and in Rome Nadal started experiencing issues related to his chronic foot problem.

This year’s Australian Open champion is +300 or shorter at PointsBet, DraftKings and FanDuel, but he’s +350 at WynnBET.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, the man that led Djokovic 2-0 in the French Open final last year before losing, also has the longest odds at WynnBET, where he is +1000. World No. 3 Alexander Zverev is +2800 at WynnBET and short of +2000 in almost all other places.

Daniil Medvedev, the World No. 2 who has played just one match on clay this year due to injury, is +5000 at BetRivers.
