Carlos Alcaraz Closes on 2022 French Open Odds

Rafael Nadal is favored to win the French Open due to his dominance at Roland Garros. However, the latest French Open odds show that there has been some early action on Carlos Alcaraz. The 18-year-old phenom is already ranked No. 11 by the ATP, and he is coached by 2003 French Open winner Juan Carlos Ferrero. 

CURRENT 2022 ROLAND GARROS ODDS

  • RAFAEL NADAL +120
  • NOVAK DJOKOVIC +225
  • CARLOS ALCARAZ +275
  • STEFANOS TSITSIPAS +600
  • DOMINIC THIEM +1600
  • ALEXANDER ZVEREV +1600
  • ALL OTHER PLAYERS +2000 OR MORE

Alcaraz won his first ATP event in 2021 shortly after turning 18, and he has already won twice on the tour this year. He won the Rio Open on clay court, beating Diego Schwartzman in the finals, and he showed that he could get it done on hard court too last week at the Miami Open. Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud in straight sets to become the youngest Masters 1000 champion since Rafael Nadal won the Monte Carlo Masters.

No player has dominated an event like Rafael Nadal has dominated the French Open though. Nadal has won 13 of his Grand Slam titles at Roland Garros and is 105-3 overall here. He was knocked off by Novak Djokovic in the semifinals of last year’s French Open, but he won the French Open four straight times prior to that loss. Nadal has usually been an odds-on favorite to win the French Open. However, age and injuries have hurt his chances coming into this year.

Novak Djokovic is currently cleared to play in the French Open although he in unvaccinated from COVID-19. However, French Open officials recently said that Djokovic and other unvaccinated players can only take part in the event as long as France maintains its current COVID level. Djokovic is currently the most talented player in the world, but his vaccination status and Nadal’s dominance on clay keeps him from being the favorite even though he is the defending champion.

The other player to watch is Stefanos Tsitsipas. We nearly saw Tsitsipas win his first Grand Slam title here last year as he took a 2-0 lead on Djokovic. However, he dropped the next three sets to lose in heartbreaking fashion. Tsitsipas made it to the semifinals of the Australian Open, so he must be respected.
