Serena Williams odds to win 4/1
After the start of the 2007 French Open was
delayed for nearly three hours today, the games matches did
made for a very short day at the French Open, when only 7 out of
the scheduled 24 matches began.
Serena Williams is not the favorite to win the
French Open this year. She was given the odds of 4/1 by the
British online bookmaker
Bet365 (new window). The
favorite to win Roland Garros, according to the betting site, is
still Justine Henin with odds 2.37.
Henin won over Elena Vesnina of Russia 6-4,
6-3, but Serena William's match was delayed, due to the weather.
Williams recovered to beat Tsvetana Pironkova 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 and
move to the second round, as well. The clay at the French Open
proved difficult for Serena and she showed none of the form
Williams exhibited in Australia. The match of Serena Williams'
sister, Venus, was postponed until tomorrow.
