Much like the men, the women have also fallen behind on their 2008 French Open Roland Garros schedule, due to incrementing precipitation in the City of Light’s forecast. At this point, some matches have already moved on to the third round, however, many second round matches still remain to be played. The flamboyant # 5 seeded American Serena Williams, is off to a strong start in this year’s French Open R.G. After two rounds, Serena awaits Thursday’s results, which will determine who her next opponent will be. International champion odds-makers at BodogLife.com have all the 2008 French Open Roland Garros betting odds for second & third round betting action.
The other, Williams-sister, Venus, will be in second round action early Thursday morning.
Venus Williams is a -3000 betting odds favorite against +1000 Selima Sfar. Their match is scheduled for 5 am EST, and can be seen live on the TennisChannel.
The new WTA’s world’s # 1, Maria Sharapova, will be in second round action early Thursday morning, after escaping a scare in her first round match.
This is certainly not a good sign for the young Russian beauty’s chances to win the 2008 French. Sharapova, (almost by default) became the world’s # 1 player after Justine Henin announced her retirement.
But Maria will have to pick up her play, if she hopes to continue to stay atop the WTA world-rankings. Maria Sharapova is a -3000 betting odds favorite to win her second round match against +1000 Bethanie Mattek. This match can also be seen live on the TennisChannel at 10 am EST.
