Betfair new customers can enjoy 6/1 that Djokovic wins for the first time at Roland Garros
The stage is nearly set for the 2015 French Open and the men’s singles should be a typically exciting affair, with Rafael Nadal looking to win a tenth title at Roland Garros.
However, Nadal has gone off the boil in the past few months and it’s Novak Djokovic who is all the rage with punters. He’s odds on with every bookmaker although the great news is that you can back him at a price-boosted 6/1.
Betfair new customers can enjoy this fantastic price boost, with a maximum £10 stake available at these odds which means a handsome £60 profit should Djokovic succeed in Paris.

Back Djokovic at 6/1
Should Djokovic win, you will enjoy a big payout of £60 plus your £10 stake back.
These odds of 6/1 are way bigger than the standard 8/11 about Djokovic who is in the form of his life and looks like taking all the beating at the 2015 French Open.
A recent victory in Rome served to highlight that the Serbian was playing out of his skin, with the world number one confident of success at Roland Garros.
Djokovic, speaking to the crowd in Italian after his recent success, said: “Today I played my best match of the week. It’s always a great challenge to play Federer. It feels like home here, one of my favourite tournaments. Along with 2011 this is the best year of my career, although I don’t know what will happen at Roland Garros. I feel very strong.”
It’s a sentiment echoed by Annabel Croft and the Sky Sports pundit doesn’t see Djokovic letting his guard down against Nadal, Federer and Murray in France.
“He’s very machine-like out there when he’s playing his matches these days, but you know inside bubbling under the surface is this ruthless competitor who has this wall of steel around him,” Croft told Sky Sports 3.
“He’s so unbelievably consistent with the level of play. Yes, he has a couple of little dips in concentration but when he does he finds a way to get it right back and take it up to a higher level.
“He’s in a winning mode and he’s breeding confidence all the time. The 11 wins over top 10 opponents this year is extraordinary and against all the greatest competitors around him – Federer, Nadal, Murray, Berdych and Ferrer.
“The French Open is in his head all the time. He keeps asking himself ‘is this going to be the year that I’m going to take it’. This is so much a part of that preparation.
“Even though he’s trying to take it one set at a time, there is no way that it’s not niggling away at him what sort of tennis he is trying to find when he goes towards that French Open because that is his ultimate goal to take that French Open title.”
