Serena Williams has had her ups and downs in regards to her tennis career, but there's no doubting she's probably still the best overall big-match player in the world. The 2012 French Open Odds for Serena Williams to win the event are set at +250, the lowest odds of any female tennis player competing in the event. For the next two weeks, the best tennis players in the world will be squaring off on the red clay for the right to be called a Champion at Roland Garros.
Williams has won more than $36 million in professional earnings, which is the most all-time for a female athlete and fourth all-time among tennis athletes. Serena has 13 Grand Slam titles, but has only won once at Roland Garros, back in 2002 when she beat sister Venus. There's arguably no one on the planet (other than Rafael Nadal) who is playing better on the red clay than Williams right now, which is probably why she has been tabbed as the favorite to win the tournament.
