Sharapova Odds-On For French Glory
The Russian is the new world number one after cruising to the Paris final.
Maria Sharapova is just 2/7 (WilliamHill) to win her first French Open crown after overcoming Petra Kvitova 6-3 6-3 in the semi-finals at Roland Garros. She will face world number 21 Sara Errani who upset US Open champion Sam Stosur 7-5 1-6 6-3. The Italian is 3/1 (Bet365) to beat the new world number one in Saturday’s final.
Before that it’s men’s semi-final day with the eagerly awaited re-match between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. The rivals met at this stage last year with the Swiss ending the Serb’s long unbeaten run. Djokovic is 8/15 (WilliamHill) to exact revenge with Federer at 17/10 (Boylesports).
