Odds to Win Open Sud de France
The ATP 250 Open Sud de France is set to kick off its 36th edition on February 5th. A key event on the ATP tour calendar, the Open Sud de France will feature many big-name players, including several French stars.
Montpellier will host the event at its Sud de France arena for the 13th time in 2023. Last year’s champion, Alexander Bublik, will be returning to defend his title after surprising everyone by beating favorite Alexander Zverev in the final. However, he’s coming off a recent first-round loss to David Goffin in Auckland.
Open Sud de France odds will give bettors 28 competitors to pick from in five rounds of competition, opening up many betting options, from choosing an outright winner to wagering on individual matches. This year’s event promises to be one of the most exciting on the ATP 250 calendar.
Bublik, the reigning singles champion, and Pierre Hugues Herbert and Nicholas Mahut, the reigning doubles champions, will look to defend their titles at the upcoming tournament on the tennis schedule. Richard Gasquet of France, Holger Rune of Denmark, and Jannik Sinner of Italy are all set to challenge Bublik for the singles title.
Open Sud de France Players to Watch
Alexander Zverev is expected to take a break following the Australian Open to focus on his condition and probably won’t be participating in Montpellier. Instead, Open Sud de France predictions show the tournament’s main draw as Danish star Holger Rune.
If he performs as reasonably as he has been, spectators can expect an entertaining show and possibly another ATP title for Rune.
Top-15 player Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain will also attend this year’s event along with other top-40 players like Gregor Dmitrov and Sinner. Since the tournament moved to Montpellier, a Frenchman has won eight out of the last twelve tournaments, making it a worthwhile bet to back a local player.
They are expected to show strength at this year’s Open Sud de France, including past winners Constant Lestienne, Benjamin Bonzi, Richard Gasquet, and Arthur Rinderknech.
Open Sud de France Player Predictions
Rune is likely to be the next big thing in tennis picks. Rune recently made a big splash in the tennis world by defeating Novak Djokovic while taking the Paris Rolex Masters title. However, his success did not continue as he exited in the first round against Nishioka in his first ATP tournament of 2023, despite taking the first set.
His biggest challenge has been sustaining momentum. Following his 2022 French Open semi-final run, he had an unfortunate streak of five consecutive first-round exits.
However, depending on which version of Rune shows up at the tournament, Open Sud de France odds show that he should make a deep run at this year’s event, and bettors should at least make a solid profit on his first-round match.
Open Sud de France odds will show the smart money on a Frenchman to win the title this year. In 2022, the 30-year-old Lestienne entered the top 100 in the tennis standings for the first time, having spent most of his career competing in Challenger or ITF events. He celebrated this milestone by notching three Challenger tournament wins and reaching his first-ever ATP quarter-final and semi-final.
In 2023, Lestienne continued his impressive form, making it to the semi-finals of the Adelaide 2 tournament before retiring. He’s looking to make a mark again at the Montpellier tournament and is a potential winner of his first and second-round matches. It could also be the tournament where he finally claims his first ATP title.
Sinner had a mediocre 2022 ATP season. His performance could have been better overall, as he reached the Australian Open, US Open, and Wimbledon quarter-finals, but it was not as impressive as his 2021 season when he won five ATP titles. He retired early in some matches and exited in the first round of the Paris Rolex Masters against Marc Andrea Huesler.
As a result, Sinner dropped out of the top 10 and currently ranks 16th, leading up to the Open Sud de France. Therefore, it may be hard to bet on him as the winner. However, his talent makes him one of the top players in the Open Sud de France tennis odds.
