Betting Odds for the 2021 Grand Slam Tournaments

With Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal tied at 20 Grand Slam titles each and Novak Djokovic just two behind, any one of the three contenders for the greatest male tennis player of all time could have the solo lead in terms of majors won by the time 2021 is over.

The women’s side is also fascinating, with Naomi Osaka looking to wrestle the number one spot from Ashleigh Barty, and Iga Swiatek bidding to defend her French Open crown. Plus, Serena Williams would love to add to her mega haul of 23 Grand Slam singles titles and the betting sites certainly aren’t writing her off.

French Open

There are no prizes for guessing who the favourite is to win the Men’s French Open. The King of Clay, Nadal, is at the top of the betting, but some betting sites have it closer than others.

Bet365, which is one of the best bookies for tennis, has the 13-time champion at Roland Garros priced at 6/5, with Djokovic just behind him at 9/4. In this Bet365 review, you can discover some of the other markets offered by the online bookie.

Dominic Thiem is a 4/1 shot, while Australian Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev is next at 16/1.

It is more wide open in the women’s tournament, with Swiatek and Simona Halep both leading the way at 5/1 apiece.

The world’s top two players, Osaka and Barty, are both at 10/1 along with Garbine Muguruza.


Sadly, there was no Wimbledon in 2020 and the lasting memory of the tournament for fans is the epic five-setter between Djokovic and Federer in the 2019 Men’s Final.

The Serb came out on top on that occasion, and he is as short as 11/8 to repeat that success. If he was to win in Paris and then at Wimbledon, there would be three men tied at 20 Grand Slam titles.

Nadal and Federer come next in the betting at 13/2 and 8/1 respectively. Backing Andy Murray at 25/1 would be speculative at best, and it’s not surprising that Medvedev, Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Alexander Zverev are priced shorter.

Osaka has never made it past the third round in south west London but she is a marginal favourite at 6/1 to rack up another big win here.

The usual suspects are tipped to challenge the 23-year-old, and Halep looks good value at 8/1 to retain her championship.

US Open

Djokovic is priced as short to win in New York as Nadal is at Roland Garros, which demonstrates the Australian Open champion’s dominance on the hardcourt surface.

Thiem (11/2) will enter as the reigning champion but it’s Medvedev (5/1) who is considered by many betting sites to be a bigger threat to Djokovic.

Federer, who will be 40 by the time the US Open comes around, is a 9/1 chance – just a touch bigger than the 13/2 Nadal.

Of all of the women’s Grand Slams, the US Open has the clearest favourite in Naomi Osaka at 9/2.

Unlike the other tournaments, the chasing pack are priced at 9/1 or greater, but there are as many as a dozen players under 20/1 as the likes of Victoria Azarenka and Bianca Andreescu are fancied to go far.
