French Open Women’s Favorite
Iga Świątek (-145)
Świątek comfortably sits atop the women’s draw as the world No. 1 and has won this tournament two out of the last three seasons, including last year. She has never lost more than two matches on the clay in the last four seasons, but has already dropped two in 14 matches this year. That leaves just the smallest shred of doubt here.
French Open Women’s Draw
The top seeds will look different than they did a season ago, with the likes of Maria Sakkari and Paula Badosa slipping down the rankings a bit. Still, there are plenty of contenders making their way into the world’s top 50 this clay season, like Karolína Muchová and Anhelina Kalinina.
The floater to watch here is Elena Rybakina, who has asserted herself as arguably the second-best player in the world and will either fall in Świątek’s half, or Aryna Sabalenka‘s.
French Open Women’s Contenders
Aryna Sabalenka (+650)
Sabalenka has arguably never come into a Grand Slam with more buzz. She lost to Iga Świątek in the Stuttgart final, and a week later avenged that defeat by taking her out in the Madrid final, capturing the title there for the second time in three years.
When Sabalenka’s on, she’s the most dangerous player in the world on the women’s side, and it’s hard to argue she’s anywhere but at the height of her powers.
Elena Rybakina (+850)
It’s hard to determines whether Rybakina or Sabalenka is closest to Świątek at the moment after the Kazakh took home the title in Rome. She won Wimbledon last season year and lost to Sabalenka in the Australian Open final this season, making her a power player at any one of the slams.
While her best surface is always going to be a quick one, her 7-2 record on clay this season has proven her game can translate to the dirt.
French Open Women’s Sleeper Bets
Maria Sakkari (+3700)
It seems wrong to see Sakkari this far down the list of players who can win this tournament considering she was No. 3 in the world just last year and currently stands at No. 8. She has an incredible track record on the dirt but has lifted just one WTA trophy in her entire career.
With that said, she is still one of the 10 best clay-courters in the world, and that will always make her a sleeper at the French Open.
Caroline Garcia (+4800)
Garcia finally figured out how to manage her nerves last season, culminating in a trip to the semifinals of the US Open. She hasn’t exactly followed that up with a strong showing in 2023, but clay has been her best surface in recent years, and she’s been to the quarters here at Roland Garros before.
She’s got a huge game, and perhaps a friendly home crowd will pull it back out of her.
