Roland Garros 2019
For anyone interested in betting on Tennis, Roland Garros is a good place to start. Also known as the French Open, Roland Garros is one of the four Grand Slam Tennis Championships, which includes the US Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Being a Grand Slam, the tournament attracts thousands of visitors to the event each day while millions of viewers at home catch the live action via broadcast or live stream. From a betting point of view, the tournament is ideal for both novices and experienced punters with outright bets, live in-play betting and match markets.
About the Tournament
Roland Garros was first played back in 1891 when it was still a local tournament. By 1925 it had gone international, and is now one of the most prestigious European tournaments on the Tennis calendar. It is also the only Grand Slam to be played on a Clay surface. This affects the speed of the ball and how quickly players can move around the court. Subsequently players must adjust their game, relying more on strategy than speed and power.
Dates and Event Details
Roland Garros 2019 will get underway on the 26th of May and conclude with the finals on the 9th of June. As always, the event will be held at the iconic Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. All the best players from around the world will be at the event hoping to make it through to the latter stages and a chance to lift the coveted trophy.
Last year in the women’s event it was Simona Halep who picked up yet another Grand Slam title when she defeated Sloan Stephens. In the men’s event, Raphael Nadal showed an impressive display of dominance when he swept aside Dominic Thiem in straight sets.
Where to Bet?
