Getting the best price on Henin is the key to maximizing her value.
Justine Henin is priced at +175 with Bodog to win the 2010 French Open and that makes her the clear favorite for the second Grand Slam event of the calendar year.
The reason that Henin is considered the favorite is because she is a 4 time singles champion at the French Open having won it in all of the following years: 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2007. Henin did not contest the 2008 French Open or the 2009 event as she was in a sort of retirement, something that in hindsight was just an extended break from professional tennis.
Having not played in either 2008 (Ana Ivanovic won) or 2009 (Svetlana Kuznetsova won) and having won all three French Opens between 2005 and 2007, you actually have to go all the way back to 2004 to find Henin's last loss in Roland Garros singles. Tathiana Garbin of Italy is currently ranked 56th on tour and she delivered one of the most shocking upsets of the last decade in women's tennis in the second round of the 2004 French Open by taking Henin out of the tournament.
Henin is on form to make a deep run into Roland Garros as she has a recent clay court title having defeated Samantha Stosur in the final of Stuttgart. However an argument against betting Henin is that she is currently only ranked 19th on tour (and climbing). She could face challenging oppoents as early as the 3rd and 4th rounds although Henin was unseeded in Melbourne and still made the Australian Open final (l. to Serena Williams).
