Cape Town -  The French Open starts this weekend, and Rafael Nadal is not the favourite!

Instead, is backing Novak Djokovic to win his first ever Roland Garros title while Nadal has slipped down to second favourite after looking unimpressive in the pre-tournaments.

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson is a long 250/1 to win the year’s second Grand Slam.

Despite being the defending champion and having recently won in Italy, Maria Sharapova is still considered an outsider to Serena Williams. The 33-year-old American has been battling with an elbow injury, but she remains the front-runner in the women’s game according to the bookies.
