Best price was 18/1.:)

And most bookmakers are unwilling to lay odds due to the likes of Kim Clijsters being doubtful.

Best price was 18/1.:)And this has her 25-1?
With Sveta and Lena 20-1?

lol goldenlox I don't know much about those odds, they look rather strange. It's very odd for a bookmaker to price up players who are not playing for starters (ie Capriati), and players who are also doubtful.Now I'm in the UK so I was say most bookmakers won't price up the event until after the draw is made, and they know who is playing. I'd say we should get prices around Sunday afternoon.
We can get prices for Wimbledon. lol but the bookies are very hestitant about the French presently.

Here's the latest for Wimbledon from William Hills (the UKs largest bookmaker)

Serena Williams 3.25
M Sharapova 5.00
K Clijsters 6.00
J Henin - Hardenne 6.50
L Davenport 10.00
Venus Williams 11.00
S Kuznetsova 21.00
A Molik 21.00
A Mauresmo 26.00
E Dementieva 34.00
A Ivanovic 34.00
J Capriati 41.00
A Myskina 51.00
T Golovin 67.00
K Sprem 67.00
D Hantuchova 101.00

You can currently place a bet on the Men’s. But Ladies is currently suspended.

How about a wager on Eurovision song contest? hehe

It's already clear that the bookies are convinced that Justine is going to win RG. They are not taking a lot of risks. The odds are very low for JHH.

The only way of making money is betting on somebody else. The bookies will be praying that JHH wins RG. I have never seen such a clear favourite for an event. The rest of the field is miles behind JHH (eg. the odds are almost 10 ten times as high for Amélie). And it is to be found with all the bookies. They all give similar odds.

JHH will have trouble explaining that she is not the only favourite for RG. Nobody believes her.
