Browny’s Tips – French Open Day 2

Safe Bets

Jack Sock @ $1.35 – Sock should overcome Jiří Veselý. These courts suit Sock and I see him progressing to the second round.

Feliciano Lopez @ $1.45 – The veteran Spaniard should have too much experience and too much class for American Bjorn Fratangelo.

Richard Gasquet @ $1.10 – I can’t see the Frenchman having any trouble against 127th ranked Arthur De Greef, especially in front of his home crowd.

Karolína Plíšková @ $1.13 – Can’t see her having too much trouble here against Zheng Saisai from China. Zheng has never made it beyond the first round here at Roland Garros.

Lucie Šafářová @ $1.30 – The 2015 finalist should be too strong for 97th ranked Verónica Cepede Royg.

Worth a Punt

Andrey Rublev @ $6.00 – Touted as one of the ‘next-gen’ stars, Rublev takes Argentine Diego Schwartzman. Rublev won the Junior Singles title at Roland Garros in 2014 so he is clearly comfortable on this surface.

Mikhail Youzhny @ $2.40 – I give Youzhny a reasonable chance against Rogério Dutra da Silva of Brazil. The Brazilian has never made it mast the first round at Roland Garros and Youzhny is a former quarter-finalist. Not much difference in their current rankings either.

Ernests Gulbis @ $9.30 – A lot depends on which Gulbis turns up to this match but a danger game for Marin Čilić. Gulbis famously beat Roger Federer here on his run to the semi-finals a few years back.

Ajla Tomljanović @ $8.50 – Very long odds for Tomljanović against Kiki Bertens of The Netherlands. I see some value for the Aussie here and she knows how to on clay – she reached the fourth round here in 2014. Bertens has never progressed beyond the second.
