The FavoritesSerena Williams 5/2 Maria Sharapova 4/1 Simona Halep 4/1 Victoria Azarenka 7/1 Petra Kvitova 10/1 Carla Suarez Navarro 16/1
AnalysisWTA World No. 1 Serena Williams has gone a near-perfect 25-1 this season while winning two titles including the 2015 Australian Open. The favorite in every tournament she enters, Williams will be looking to win the French again and regain the title she won in 2013 and failed to win a year ago. World No. 2 Maria Sharapova is 26-5 this year with two titles including at Rome about two weeks days ago. If Sharapova can avoid Serena Williams, she’ll be the favorite. If she has to play Serena, then it’s going to be another bitter piece of candy for ‘Sugarpova’.
World No. 3 Simona Halep is 29-6 this season and has won three titles while reaching the semis in Rome. I believe it’s only a matter of time before the aggressive Halep wins a slam. – and it could come at this year’s French Open. Two-time slam winner and World No. 4 Petra Kvitova is 21-6 this season with two titles, but the big question for her is will her movement on clay suffice? World No. 27 Victoria Azarenka is just 15-7 this year with no titles, but reached the quarters at Rome where she loss to Sharapova in three sets. I really like World No.10 Carla Suarez-Navarro and her 31-10 record this season is quite impressive. Even more impressive however is the way she beat the snot out of Kvitova, Halep, Eugenie Bouchard and Heather Watson at Rome.
