No Serena. No Federer. No Sharapova. Djokovic off his game. If there was ever a time for a big upset run in a modern major, this might be it. The French Open begins next week at Roland Garros, and it might be the most wide-open major field in recent memory. On the men’s side, if it’s a clay tournament, obviously you have to focus your attention to Rafael Nadal. But is a 30-year old who’s 1-7 in his last eight matches against Djokovic worthy of such a small price? And speaking of Djokovic, he’s only won once on tour this season and admits to being in a career crossroads. World No. 1 player Andy Murray has never won the French Open. Can someone like Dominic Thiem or Nick Kyrgios break through?
And on the women’s side, Simona Halep is the only player with odds shorter than 10/1. Without Serena Williams in the field, it’s truly a wide open contest. Maria Sharapova was denied an exemption request to play in the tournament and No. 7 Belinda Benic is recovering from wrist surgery.
