French Open Men's Final (June 10th)

It seems like the two week Grand Slam is going to end on a positive note after Maria Sharapova completed the win in the Women's tournament and it can get a lot better if Rafael Nadal can complete his seventh win at Roland Garros.

It won't be easy for Nadal as he comes up against Novak Djokovic for the fourth Grand Slam in a row having lost the previous three Slams to the World Number 1. However, none of those have come on the clay courts and Rafa has proven himself the king on this surface with some very impressive performances to reach this stage.

The Spaniard has also won two matches against Djokovic on the clay courts this season and I think he has found a little more aggression in his game to pressurise the Serb. He has found a way to deal with the backhand down the line that had been so effective for Djokovic in the 2011 season against Nadal, while I think he is also attacking the Djokovic serve with more success.

With the two wins I mentioned, Nadal has stopped a run of seven consecutive losses to Djokovic, with the previous three all coming in the Slam Finals and it is right that he is the favourite in this one. Therefore, I am going to leave my outright pick alone and hope it will send the profits soaring and make this a very profitable two weeks.

Tomorrow evening, I will recap the French Open tournament and complete the overall profit/loss for the season. I will then put up any outright picks from the up and coming tournaments on the grass courts that begin on Monday and any picks from the first matches that are to take place on June 11th.

FRENCH OPEN UPDATE: 22-23, + 3.36 Units (75 Units Staked)
