Rafael Nadal Tipped to Extend French Open Record Despite Australian Miss

Things didn’t go to plan for Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open these past few weeks, but the veteran has been tipped for a swift comeback at the French Open with Unibet.

A quarter-final exit in Melbourne didn’t impress quite as planned, but Nadal has been installed as -125 (1.80) favorite to turn it around at Roland Garros, where he has won a record 12 titles.

That’s at least four more than any other player, and Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic is unsurprisingly closest in the odds at +275 (3.75), while runner-up Dominic Thiem is the only other men’s star even close at +350 (4.50).

The 2020 French Open begins on May 24 and will run until June 7.
