This covid season has obviously impacted world tennis. Roland-Garros will be played from Monday September 21 to October 11, 2020 with the start of qualifications. Between the absence of the spectators, a completely different weather and the truncated preparations of the players, could we witness a surprise in the men's painting?
Roland-Garros 2020: what will change
For those who want to bet on the 119th edition of Roland-Garros, we will have to take into account the changes whose impact is difficult to receive. There will be 5,000 spectators against 15,000 usually. And in view of the situation of the covid, the organizers are not even sure to find them. Can the lack of atmosphere harm players who know how to use the public in difficult times? The clay will be heavier than usual with a higher humidity level. Exchanges can be longer with a slowed ball, which could equalize the levels. These are unknowns whose answers can only be found by watching the matches. It would therefore be wise to wait a bit before betting, in order to see how the first laps take place.
The favorites of Roland-Garros 2020
For this very special edition, the favorites of the male painting are substantially the same.
The ratings for the man winner:
- Rafael Nadal 1.89
- Novak Djokovic 4,00
- Dominic Thiem 4,00
Nadal is the winner of the last three tests. A victory would allow him to catch up with Federer and his 20 victories in the Grand Chelem tournaments. Motivation level, you can hardly find better, especially since ESPAgnol was formal during her last outings.
Djokovic comes to the ocher of Roland-Garros with his disqualification of the open office in mind after launching a ball on a referee. His dream of joining Nadal and Federer in the list of Grand Chelem victories is still there despite this disillusionment. He has just won the Master 1000 in Rome on clay. He is ready to do battle and drop King Espganol from the American tournament.
Thiem remains on two consecutive finals lost in Roland-Garros against Nadal. However, it arrives this year with its first Grand Slam title in your pocket after its victory at the US Open. He is obviously talented and seems to arrive at maturity. Like a whole generation of tennis player, he must do with giants, but unlike others, he has the means to bring them down.
We will look far in the table with a rating of 20, but it is a quarter finalist last year, he was released by Djokovic. He is the unhappy hero of the US Open final, but this failure also showed him that he could claim great things.
For the moment the packages are limited, but it is the top of the ATP ranking which is affected.
- Nick Kyrgios - Lucas Pouille - JO-wilfried Tsong - Roger Federer.
The bettors on tennis know this, the ratings are good and the reflex of the "bet on the winner is not the best". Take advantage of the many first -round meetings to warm up and create a strategy based on your observations rather than media analyzes.
