Rafael Nadal's 2010 French Open Odds

Nadal's odds are shortening to win the 2010 French Open following a tremendous effort at the Monte Carlo Masters.

Rafael Nadal won the Monte Carlo Masters on Sunday by nearly posting a double bagel.  That he won was no surprise and it was not even remotely surprising that he won in straight sets however to only allow a player of Fernando Verdasco's quality to win but 1 game during the whole match is certainly shocking as Nadal won 6-0, 6-1.

Following the tremendous and one-sided match victory, Nadal's price to win the French Open started shortening.  On Saturday you could still find Nadal at -150 (2/3) to win the French, but now his best price is -175 (4/7) with Ladbrokes (MAXIMUMBONUS is your promotional code when you sign up).

Those who are thinking of taking Nadal to win the 2010 French Open need to act fast if they want to avoid having to take shorter odds.  Some sportsbooks have already hit the panic button as Boylesports, for example, have priced at Nadal at -250 (2/5) to for victory at Roland Garros.

Nadal appears to be unstoppable on clay and the only reason you might pause to pound him to win the French is because neither Roger Federer (+275, 11/4; Boylesports) nor Juan Martin Del Potro (+800, 8/1; Paddy Power) contested the Monte Carlos Masters.  Those two players are the second and third favorites to win the Slam in Paris however even if they had played in Monaco you have to wonder if either of them would have prevented Nadal from winning the title.  Federer played poorly at the American hard court tournaments this spring and given how lackluster Del Potro has been since winning the US Open, neither can be given enough credit to beat Nadal on clay when he is playing so well.

Betting Nadal now for the French is the smart move to make because he is opening at -400 (1/4) to win in Barcelona and should he win there, you can fully expect the sportsbooks to hit the panic button once again.  If you are thinking of taking either Federer or Del Potro, then Del Potro at +800 (8/1) isn't a bad play for value but you can expect a better price on him later if you agree that Nadal will be shortening.

Recommendation: hurry for Nadal (act now), wait for Federer or Del Potro.
