Roberto Bautista Agut @ $1.13 – I expect Bautista Agut to be too strong for Mikhail Kukushkin who has never made it beyond the 2nd round at Roland Garros. Bautista Agut has won the single meeting between these players.
Petra Kvitová @ $1.42 – Kvitová should be too good for American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Kvitová currently ranked 101 spots higher than the American.
Garbiñe Muguruza @ $1.50 – I can’t see the defending champ having too much trouble against Anett Kontaveit. I expect Muguruza to progress to the third round.
Worth a Punt
Ivo Karlovic @ $2.22 – Karlovic plays Argentine Horacio Zeballos. These two had an epic match which went to 22-20 in the Australian Open earlier this year. Karlovic will be strong on serve and is a very patient player who’s happy to wait to the tiebreaks to do the damage. I see this as a 50/50.
Tommy Robredo @ $5.30 – I give Robredo a big chance against Grigor Dimitrov in this second round matchup. Dimitrov doesn’t play clay particularly well whilst it is Robredo’s favourite surface. Robredo is a 5-time quarter finalist here at Roland Garros whilst Dimitrov has never made it beyond the 3rd round. Good value for Robredo here.
Viktor Troicki @ $2.21 – Interestingly Troicki is the outsider with the bookies for this match despite being ranked over 30 spots higher than Nikoloz Basilashvili. I’d be surprised if Troicki didn’t win this one considering how easily he won his first round match.
Sara Errani @ $2.87 – A tough second round matchup for 13th seed Kristina Mladenovic. Errani was a finalist here in 2012 and has a good record at Roland Garros.
