Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player on the planet. However, he isn't the best tennis player on clay courts. That crown belongs to Rafael Nadal. The draw for this year's French Open is phenomenal, however, as it sets up a final between Nadal and Djokovic. What could be better? The 2012 French Open odds for Novak Djokovic are set at +240, which is just a little bit less than 2.5/1 odds. Those are the second best odds of anyone in the tournament other than Rafael Nadal.
Djokovic has won every Grand Slam event except for the French Open. He's won three times at the Australian Open and once each at Wimbledon and at the U.S. Open. Last year he swept the three tournaments not named for Roland Garros. Except he's never gotten past the semifinals of this tournament, so it's not hard to see why he hasn't won just yet. But his draws have never been amazing either, matching up with Nadal. However, if he is to win the French Open this season it will be his fourth consecutive Grand Slam title. Djokovic, at just 24 years old, had arguably the best tennis season ever in 2011 when he won 10 tournaments, more than $12 million in winnings, a 70–6 overall record and a record-breaking five ATP 1000 event wins.
The French Open is often referred to as Roland Garros and is named after the famous French aviator Roland Garros, The event will take place over two weeks overall between Sunday and the second week of June in Paris, France. The French Open is played at the Stade Roland Garros and is considered by most tennis fans, broadcasters and players as the premier clay court event in the world. It's still currently the only of the four major tournaments that is played on clay.
