A long season is drawing to its final conclusion with the race to London still being a possibility for a number of players. One of those players is 2008 Paris champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and he appeals in the outright each-way market at 40/1. Tsonga is drawn in the top half where he could meet world number one Rafael Nadal in the last eight, while Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro take their places in the bottom half.
It has been quite a while since a number one seed won Paris, the rigors of a long and demanding season taking its toll on the top players at this stage of the season with their eyes usually looking ahead to the year end championships. Andre Agassi was the last man to do so in 1999.
The Overrule will be placing half a point each-way on Tsonga at 40/1 and if he should make the last four would give us flexibility for the latter stages of the tournament.
