It's time for the last Slam of the year. French Open in September/October? Crazy times.
Here are the draws:

There's a roof this year. And lights. Which will come handy. Lots of rain is expected, so it can still be a big challenge to keep things on schedule.

How do the set betters on here tend to play those markets ?
Do you play them with a view to a trade, or a vehicle to better value than the match odds?

For example, Nadal was 1.71 pre-match, but you could have got 2.27 if you coupled a 3 and 4 set win.

Nick Kyrgios admits sleeping with fans is a ‘weekly thing’ after he broke up with fellow tennis player Anna Kalinskaya.

The 25-year-old from Australia was dating the 21-year-old, but the pair broke up in March.

The Australian bad boy admitted he once struggled to finish a match with tennis icon Roger Federer after he was so distracted by an ‘attractive’ woman in the crowd.

While playing Fortnite, Kyrgios explained to fans: “Yes. In all seriousness, if I’m not seeing someone, it’s a weekly thing.

“I was slicing up ‘Fedz’ and was like, ‘Damn.’ I wanted to take her out for a drink.

“Eastern Europeans just have my heart on the get-go. Tall Eastern European’s I’m just like, ‘Take half my earnings.'”
