If you’re also interested in betting on tennis matches, you could already find the best Roland Garros odds at OddsManager.co.uk. The tournament doesn’t commence until next year but you could place early bets with Betfair, who are offering 5/6 on Rafael Nadal winning it. Novak Djokovic is at 3/1 with Bet365 and Dominic Thiem is 4/1 with William Hill. Paddy Power also have Roger Federer to win at 25/1.

That’s still a ways away but Nadal and Daniil Medvedev have been locked in as finalists for the US Open, with the final set for Sunday, September 8. Betfair has 1/5 odds on offer as it pertains to a Nadal Victory while his opponent is at 21/5. This game will hand punters plenty of other bets and if you’re wanting to bet on the number of sets, then Skybet has 5/6 going on a three-set game. You could find an over 3.5-set match at 4/6 with Paddy Power. Betfred have 15/8 on four sets and 7/2 on five.

Nadal is chasing a fourth US Open win and a 19th Grand Slam after overcoming a difficult Matteo Berrettini in the semi-final. Medvedev presents a whole new challenge and has earned some praise from the veteran star ahead of their clash.

"He’s one of the more solid players on tour," Nadal admitted. "He’s making steps forward every week, having an amazing summer. Is the player that is playing better today on tour this summer so will be the toughest opponent in the final. In a Grand Slam final, you can’t expect to have an easy opponent. You need to play your best."

If he dispatches the 23-year-old Russian on Sunday, he will only be one Grand Slam away from tying Federer’s 21 and would be in a perfect position to usurp the Swiss star by next year. It will also be the 12th straight major for either Nadal, Federer or Djokovic.
