Online Tennis Betting: If you're looking for the best advice for tennis betting, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the French Open, which will take place from May 26th through June 9th, 2013 at Roland Garros in Paris, France, featuring Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal.
The seeding may not show it, but Rafael Nadal is the player to beat on the men's side of the French Open. The No. 5 seed will aim for his fourth straight event title and eighth in nine years when the tournament takes place from May 26th through June 9th, 2013 at Roland Garros in Paris, France. Nadal has the most titles since the French Open expanded and should be the favorite to win once again this year in tennis betting.
Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic, 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 for last year's title. He has beaten Roger Federer four times, Robin Soderling and Mariano Puerta to win his other championships. Federer is the only player to win the French Open during Nadal's run of dominance, defeating Soderling for the title in 2009. Federer is the No. 2 seed and will likely be considered the chief competition, while Djokovic and Andy Murray are the other two elite players who may be able to make a run at knocking off Nadal.
Maria Sharapova is the defending champion on the women's side, beating Sara Errani 6-3, 6-2 last year. Na Li, Francesca Schiavone and Svetlana Kuznetsova are a few of the other recent champions. Justine Henin won the French Open in three consecutive years from 2005-07, while Serena Williams is another former champ, although she hasn't claimed the title since 2002.
The women's side seems wide open based on the past few years, but Nadal should be a heavy favorite on the men's side in tennis betting.

2013 French Open - Roland Garros Results
Nadal vs. Ferrer - French Open 2013 Men's Final
The 2013 French Open came to a conclusion when Rafael Nadal defeated David Ferrer in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3, to win the Coupe des Mousquetaires and make history.
After a seven-month layoff from professional tennis, Nadal proved that he’s back and looking to be remembered as the best to ever live by winning Roland Garros for a record-extending eighth time.
There was a scary moment when a spectator rushed the court wielding a flare. Fortunately, security stopped him immediately.
There was a light rain falling at points, but Rafa had no issues staying focused and systematically destroying his fellow Spaniard.
Due to a powerful serve and ability to cover the court with ease, Nadal lived up to his billing as the King of Clay.
Williams vs. Sharapova - French Open 2013 Women's Final
After an exciting 2013 French Open final, it was Serena Williams who took down defending champion Maria Sharapova (6-4, 6-4) to capture her second-career title at Roland Garros and first since 2002.
Coming off a first-round shocker the previous year to Virginie Razzano, the win must have been even sweeter for Williams.
Sharapova performed admirably, but Williams continues to get the better of her. She is now 14-2 against the second-ranked Russian all time.
Some predicted this women’s final would be a one-sided affair. Williams would control the pace and dominate the overmatched Sharapova, said popular opinion. That did not happen early.
Using her powerful serve and defensive speed across the baseline, Sharapova was able to hold serve after a tough opening game. She then went on to break Williams to take a 2-0 advantage.
After finding some of the emotion she had lacked early, Williams rattled off three straight games before things were noted once more at 4-4.
Breaking the Russian's serve again to lead 5-4, Williams held serve to take the first set 6-4.
Williams' return game was on point early, but it took her some time to get her serve on track.
2012 Roland Garros French Open Results
Nadal beats Djokovic to win record seventh French Open title
For a record seventh time, Rafael Nadal has claimed the French Open title.
Nadal also won it for a third successive year and his seven championships at Roland Garros set an Open Era record to break a mark he shared with the great Bjorn Borg, but on Monday the Spaniard finally defeated an opponent that had become a Grand Slam nemesis.
Nadal earned a 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 victory over world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in a final that started Sunday but was completed a day later because of rain.
"Having this trophy with me is unforgettable," Nadal said during the trophy presentation after the match. "It's one of the most special moments in my career."
Nadal also captured his 11th career Grand Slam crown. It might have been more if not for Djokovic's recent domination in the majors.
The Serbian star had won the last three Grand Slam titles, all coming at Nadal's expense in those finals. He was trying to become the first man to hold all four major championships at the same time since Rod Laver won a natural Grand Slam in 1969.
But the French Open has been Nadal's second home. The Mallorcan has lost just once on the famed red clay and Djokovic was appearing in the final of the Parisian slam for the first time.
Sharapova sensational in win for the record books
The eyes told it all, moments before Sara Errani and Maria Sharapova started to warm up Saturday for their French Open final.
Sharapova, the heavy favorite, remained in her own private world, untouched by the ceremony and applause bestowed on the finalists as they laid down their first footsteps on the red clay. She quietly dropped the hand of the child who led her out as soon as she could, barely touched the giant bouquet of peonies and roses that was presented to her, and never smiled or averted her steely gaze.
This was not the moment to drink in the scene. There was a task at hand, and second-seeded Sharapova was not suffering even the tiniest of distractions.
Errani tried to look poker-faced too, but the dark irises of her pale blue eyes grew subtly larger with every step she took onto Court Philippe Chatrier. This was the first Grand Slam final for the No. 21 seed, and she seemed irresistibly compelled to peek at the scene that she had only previously dreamed about.
Sharapova's unwavering composure would take the final, overwhelming a seemingly nervous Errani 6-3, 6-2 to capture her first French Open. After winning the final point, Sharapova fell to her knees, mouthed "Oh my God!" twice, and then fully succumbed to her moment by looking around the stands and soaking in the applause.
2011 Roland Garros French Open Results - Rafael Nadal too hot for great rival Roger Federer
Rafael Nadal this week called Roger Federer "the greatest player in history". No doubt he meant it. So, as he watched the Swiss's final shot of the French Open final sail past him across the baseline to end another memorable battle between them, this most humble of great men will surely have allowed himself a brief moment of exultation.
Nadal won 7-5, 7-6, 5-7, 6-1 in three hours and 40 minutes. It was his fourth win over Federer here in a final. It was not one to compare with the three-set annihilation of 2008 but a victory he deserved despite its imperfections.
The win keeps Nadal at the top of the heap in men's tennis, at least for a few more weeks. The world No2, Novak Djokovic, dumped out here in the semi-finals by a resurgent Federer, will come hard at them again at Wimbledon but there is much to come from two rivals who, for seven years, have held all pretenders at bay.
2011 Roland Garros French Open Results - Li Na of China keeps feet on ground after historic French Open victory
According to the Chinese news agency Xinhua, Li's 6-4, 7-6 victory over the champion, Francesca Schiavone, was watched by 95 million people. The front page sports story of Sunday's People's Daily – the ruling Chinese Communist party's official newspaper – said Li had "written an Asian legend".
Trying to become the first Chinese player to win a grand slam title would have been daunting enough without a nation hanging on her racket but the 29-year-old Li seemed remarkably unfazed by a victory that will surely change her life and the popularity of tennis in her country.
The 2010 French Open men's draw has Andy Murray and Andy Roddick both exited the tournament early, while Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic failed to get past the quarterfinals.
But, Rafael Nadal survived showing some of his best form since 2008 to reach the final. In the men's final Nadal came up against last year's losing semifinalist, Robin Soderling, and he made short work of his Swedish opponent to claim his 5th French Open title in straight sets.
In the women's draw only one of the top ten seeds made the final, as 7th seed Samantha Stosur came up against Francesca Schiavone of Italy. The women's final saw Stosur fall victim to yet another upset, as the 29-year-old Schiavone wrapped up her first grand slam title in straight sets.
