Roger Federer Drifting as Second Favorite for 2010 French Open

Rafael Nadal's title in Monte Carlo has made Federer's odds longer in the betting market for the second favorite.

Roger Federer has been idle on tour since losing in Miami however his odds in the futures market to win the 2010 French Open have been drifting even recently.  Rafael Nadal appears to be the reason why as his complete dominance at the Monte Carlo Masters has lead to his odds shortening (you can still bet Nadal with Ladbrokes at -175, 4/7).  When the favorite shortens, the other favorites are usually lengthened to keep everything in balance.

The general price on Federer to win the 2010 French Open is +275 (11/4; Boylesports, Blue Square; MAXIMUMBONUS is your promotional code) and he is the defending champion from Roland Garros.  However Fed has been off form lately and while he does play his best tennis at the Grand Slams you should probably wait if you were planning to back him. 

The reason you would want to wait is because Nadal is a -400 favorite to win the ATP Barcelona Open, another clay court event.  There's no one else besides Nadal in the field that has been given a good chance to win (Robin Soderling is the second favorite at 14 to 1 with Stan James) and if Nadal does in fact take down back to back titles on clay, his odds to win the French Open might start trending toward -300 or shorter.  Should that occur you could then expect Federer to drift out to +350 (7/2) for a best price and then you won't have to hit his odds up so hard to get a good return on a winning bet.

Recommendations for the 2010 French Open: Nadal backers need to bet now, Federer backers should be waiting.
