Game, Set, Match: French Open 2023 soon to Set the Court on Fire!

The French Open begins on Monday and with the King of Clay out injured, the field is pretty open, the most open it has been in 15 years.

There are a number of people looking to wear the Roland Garros crown in 2023. Caspar Ruud, last years’ beaten finalist must think he is in with a great chance. It was almost like he was awestruck last year, but he’ll fancy his chances more against the remainder of the field.

Holger Rune however has just beaten him in Rome. He has a really impressive head-to-head with the top players, although the best of 5 sets is always a different animal to any of the ATP finalists outside of the Majors.

Which is why you wouldn’t bet against Novak Djokovic adding to his majors titles. Even 2 sets to love down, most betting predictors still have him favourite in a best of 5 major final. There is a huge difference between a best of 3 sets and best of 5.

Although, Rune seemed to dispatch Djokovic very well in Rome, he in turn was then himself dispatched by Danil Medvedev, a man who insists he is no favourite on clay…and yet beat Rune the man in form on that surface.

If you want someone to watch as an outsider, I would pick Hungarian Fabian Marouzsan, who played an incredible match to beat Carlos Alcaraz in Rome.

It looks like it will be a fascinating French Open.
