Tennis enthusiasts have several events and tournaments to keep themselves entertained with throughout the year. To begin with, you may opt for the hardcourt season, national tournaments, the ATP 500s, or a grand slam to enjoy your favourite sport as you explore all the available sports betting options.

The next 2 Grand Slams are Roland Garros and Wimbledon, which will take place in May for the French tournament and in July for The Championships. So, can we already point out who the favourites are for victory?

Roland Garros

Roland Garros, also known as French Open, is a major tennis event to be held over two weeks in May at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France. The main question will be: who are regarded as the favourites for Roland Garros 2023?

Carlos Alcaraz

Impressive against Daniil Medvedev, the Indian Wells winner is one of the sure-fire favourites. Currently in good shape, his injuries from earlier this year seem to be long gone. Impressive in his power and mature in his game despite his young age, the Spanish player is also very comfortable on clay. Alcaraz seems to be the natural favourite for this 2023 edition.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Our second player to watch out for at Roland Garros Stefanos Tsitsipas. At 24, Tsitsipas is yet to win a Grand Slam and has shown lots of improvement since stepping up to No. 3 in the world. Although he is not the most liked player in the locker room, he is a talented and composed athlete with a promising future.

Novak Djokovic

Another player to watch out for is Novak Djokovic. Djokovic will be more motivated this time to add to his least decorated Major at the year’s second Grand Slam.

Rafael Nadal

Out of the top 10 for the first time since 2005, the Spaniard remains a natural favorite on his favorite surface. He is also the biggest winner of the French tournament. If his body allows, Nadal will undoubtedly be present this year to defend his title.

Wimbledon

The upcoming Wimbledon event is easier for wagerers to predict with the competition’s history. The trophy is Djokovic’s to lose because he has been invincible on grass–winning the last four tournaments. This is his opportunity to go ahead of his long-term rival Nadal , who also has 22 Grand Slam trophies.

Djokovic has dominated the tennis court more than his icons such as Federer and Nadal. This is his chance to make amends for missing the past events. However, we expect a tight encounter from Nadal in the upcoming events.

Other players whom we can include in the list of players to watch at Wimbledon are Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz. The duo exhibited masterclass performances in the 2022 Wimbledon event. To add more fire to the mix, let’s make an honourable mention for Nick Kyrgios.

The event comes after Kyrgios’s most successful year on Tour. He was in the final against Djokovic, where he gave the veteran a run for his money.
