The 2019 French Open starts Sunday with Rafael Nadal the even-money favorite to win his 12th title at Roland Garros. Novak Djokovic (11-4), Dominic Thiem (11-2), Stefanos Tsitsipas (16-1), Roger Federer (20-1) and Alexander Zverev (25-1) head the list of challengers in the year's second major.
Before you bet, you NEED to see who Sean Calvert picked. The internationally-acclaimed tennis journalist has been cashing consistently for six years and just took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1! Calvert is known for making legendary calls like Stan Wawrinka to win the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1, and Jack Sock to win the 2017 Paris Masters at 80-1.
More importantly, Calvert specializes in Grand Slam events. In the 2017 French Open, for instance, $100 bettors who tailed him returned more than $1,600!
We can tell you Calvert wants no part of Nadal even though the Spaniard just won the Italian Open. That was the final clay-court warm-up for the French Open, but was only Nadal's first trophy this year.
"What I've seen through much of his clay swing is an older, slower version of Nadal who no longer looks capable of fending off an elite attacking opponent," Calvert told SportsLine. "And for him to lose to single-handed righties twice before Roland Garros is virtually unheard of."
Instead, Calvert has broken down each contender's chances and zeroed in on three MASSIVE long shots worth considering. He's also broken down the fates of Djokovic, Federer, Thiem and Tsitsipas. You ABSOLUTELY need to see what he's saying before locking in any French Open picks of your own.
