In the past month, Bertens’ French Open odds have gone from +1400 to +800, moving her up into the top three players with the best odds to win the French Open.

Clay Champ

Her recent success on clay should come as no surprise. The past few years have been monumental in Bertens’ growth as a player on the court surface. The 27-year old was the runner-up in the Madrid Open in 2018 and lost in the quarterfinals in 2017, before taking home the title this year.

First Rome

It’s not going to be an easy task for Kiki to take it all at Roland-Garros, but depending on how she does at the Italian Open, we could possibly see those odds adjust again and change everything up.

It’s safe to say she’s had herself quite the week, so her momentum going into this tournament is at an all-time high.

Given a bye in the first round, we will have to wait until tomorrow to see her compete in the round of 32.

Her consistent play on clay over the past few years with a 17-5 record in 2016, 22-5 in 2017, and 13-3 in 2018, has proven that she is a force to be reckoned with on the clay courts.

Then Paris?

As the French Open gets closer and closer, many are looking at Kiki as a major contender. Odds are still in favor of Simona Halep and Halep had a 15-8 record in finals when she won Madrid two years ago. But since then? 3-9.

Going Forward

Roland-Garros is going to very interesting this year. Players have been battling injury and sickness throughout the year, but Kiki Bertens has been on a consistent run of moving forward.

What seems to be on her side has been health. Serena Williams is just coming back from a injury that took her out in March, and Halep was battling a sickness when she faced Bertens in Madrid.

If Kiki is able to stay 100-percent, I think she can put up a legitimate fight in Paris.

Pick: Bertens +800
