Reigning French Open champions Novak Djokovic and Garbine Muguruza return to defend their crowns at Roland Garros, but neither is a favorite to win the 2017 French Open.

Those honors belong to nine-time French Open winner Rafael Nadal, the odds-on favorite at 4-to-5 on the men’s side, and Romania’s Simona Halep, a 3-to-1 favorite to win the women’s title.

Nadal is dominant on clay, but was forced to withdraw from the French Open last year with a wrist injury and lost at Roland Garros in a quarterfinals match to Djokovic in 2015. Now Nadal seems rejuvenated after reaching the Australian Open finals and winning in Madrid.

Despite Muguruza’s stunning straight-set upset of Serena Williams last year at Roland Garros, she is still only 9-to-1 to repeat. That’s surprising considering that Halep is battling an ankle injury.

Below is a complete list of odds to win the 2017 French Open, via Vegas Insider, minus headliners Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova for varying reasons. Check back for updates after the draw and seeding on May 26.
