WTA 2021 French Open Betting Odds, Favorites, Contenders & Longshots

Written by on May 13, 2021

Can world No. 1 and 2019 French Open champion Ashleigh Barty get her crown back after sitting out last year’s version because of the pandemic? Could 2018 champion and world No. 3 Simona Halep get it done as one of the prohibitive co-favorites? Will world No. 15 and surprise 2020 champion repeat at only 19 years of age?

Is Serena Williams a legitimate threat to win her 24th grand slam and fourth title at Roland Garros? Better yet, is there another unheralded player that could upset the entire apple cart, much like Swiatek did in 2020.

With the 2021 French Open set to get underway on Monday, May 24, it’s time to look at the WTA Tour odds to win the quickly approaching 2021 French Open. Let’s get right to it so you can make your bets against their French Open odds.

WTA Tour Odds to Win 2021 French Open

Say Her Name

  • Iga Swiatek +500
  • Simona Halep +500
  • Ashleigh Barty +550

19-year-old Iga Swiatek made her name known on the WTA Tour by winning the 2020 French Open, but since then, she’s proven herself to be a legitimate star and top contender no matter the venue. Swiatek never lost a set last year and beat the pants off world No. 15 seed Marketa Vondrousova, the aforementioned Halep and fourth-seeded Sofia Kenin in the finals.

Simona Halep is 11-4 on the year and reached the quarterfinals in Australia. Halep is 31-10 at Roland Garros (76%) and has reached at least the fourth round in five straight French Open appearances.

World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty has gone a stellar 25-4 this season. The Australian reached the finals in Madrid before losing to Aryna Sabalenka, but beat Sabalenka in the finals of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Germany a week earlier. Barty claimed a title in Miami and another in Melbourne prior to the Australian Open this year.

DYK No. 1

  • Did You Know no woman has won consecutive titles since former WTA Tour superstar Justin Henin won three straight from 2005-2007?

Legitimate Contenders

  • Aryna Sabalenka +800
  • Garbine Muguruza +900
  • Naomi Osaka +1200
  • Bianca Andreescu +1800
  • Serena Williams +1800

Analysis: Sorry Serena, and move over Naomi. Out of this group of players, I love the value that rising world No. 4 Aryna Sabalenka is offering as a +800 pick. The 23-year-old Belarus native is 24-6 on the year with two titles in Abu Dhabi in January and Madrid just over a week ago. Sabalenka has played Barty in three consecutive tournaments and two straight finals on clay, including her win in Madrid.

DYK No. 2

  • Did You Know Maria Sharapova (2012, 2014) and Serena Williams (2013, 2015) have combined to win four of the last nine titles on the red clay at Roland Garros?

Say Her Name

  • Elina Svitolina +2000
  • Petra Kvitova +2000
  • Victoria Azarenka +2200
  • Sofia Kenin +2500
  • Karolina Pliskova +2800

Analysis: I’m done believing Karolina Pliskova can win a grand slam and my patience is wearing thin with Elina Svitolina. Victoria Azarenka and Petra Kvitova are both better on a faster surface where they can use their power. 2020 Aussie Open champ and World No. 5 Sofia Kenin reached the finals here a year ago.

Long Shot Hopefuls

  • Elise Mertens +2800
  • Maria Sakkari +2800
  • Cori Gauff +3300
  • Jelena Ostapenko +5000

Analysis: Elise Mertens just doesn’t have the firepower necessary to win seven straight matches. Coco Gauff is a future star, but her time has not quite yet arrived. 2017 French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko has been mediocre at best since claiming her only slam four years ago. World No. 19 Maria Sakkari looks dangerous to me. The 25-year-old is 15-8 on the year and reached the semifinals in Miami and Abu Dhabi.

DYK No. 3

  • Did You Know, there have been six different winners of the last six French Opens?

Top Five Picks To Win

  • Aryna Sabalenka
  • Ashleigh Barty
  • Simona Halep
  • Iga Swiatek
  • Garbine Muguruza
