French Open: Trust your gut and back Sharapova to win in 3 sets!
Maria Sharapova plays in her third consecutive French Open final and is the 4/9 favourite to beat Simona Halep on her way to a second Roland Garros title.
But if backing the short priced favourite is not for you then don’t worry because whichever aspect of the Ladbrokes Life applies to you there’s a bet to be had and here Ladbrokes News takes a look at the top three.
Sharapova leads the head-to head between the pair 3-0 and knows exactly what it takes to win on the big stage at Roland Garros.
The Russian is competing in her third straight French Open final and after winning in straight sets against Sara Errani to take the tile in 2012, she will be in confident mood against her Romania opponent.
And with Sharapova winning the only previous meeting between the pair on the clay in the recent final of the Madrid Masters it looks a tough task for Halep!
In her last three matches on the clay in Paris Sharapova has been made to work for her victories and has been taken the distance by Sam Stosur, Garbine Muguruza and Eugenie Bouchard en route to the final.
The last 12 French Open women’s singles finals may have only lasted two sets but trust your gut with Halep sure to make the former champion work hard on Court Phillipe Chatrier.
The Romanian took a set when the pair met in Madrid so go with your instincts and back Shazza to be taken the distance once again before powering home in third set!
Halep has not dropped a set on her way to the final in Paris and if The Believer in you thinks she can beat Sharapova in straight sets you can get on at 3/1 with Ladbrokes.
Sharapova is the overwhelming favourite and has not tasted defeat to the 22-year-old but the ‘worldy’ bet for this final is backing Halep to become just the second Romanian woman to win at Roland Garros – and to win in fine style!
