Roland Garros on the horizon

14/05/2013 | By | Reply More

The European clay court season is in full flow now and Rafael Nadal lifted his 40th career title on clay and 5th title this year at the Madrid Masters. On the women’s side Serena Williams successfully defended her Madrid Open title and kept her world #1 status in defeating Maria Sharapova. This was despite a massive scare in the quarter finals. We now move to Rome for the ‘International BNL d’Italia’ which will be the last  tournament before Roland Garros.

Nadal seems at his imperious best on clay, Murray seems lost and Serena it looks like a world #1. So in general form seems to be holding up at the moment and there are no surprises or real clues to performance at the French Open.

Rome should give us a final chance to look at the contenders, but bear in mind that with the French Open on our doorstep some players may not go all out to win in the lead up tournament, or may play a little safer. Nobody will ever remember you for winning in Rome, but everybody will remember a French Open champion!

I left a good job in the consumer technology industry to go a trade on Betfair for a living way back in June 2000. I've been here ever since pushing very boundaries of what's possible on betting exchanges and loved every minute of it.
