Wimbledon – Day 5

Benoit Paire vs Jiri Vesely
Over 40.5 Games

Benoit Paire

The veteran Frenchman has been in improved form of late, earning a new world ranking of #32. He has had a particularly solid 2019 so far, going 21-15 with 2 ATP titles. He has relatively comfortably made the 3rd round, dropping just 1 set in the process.

Jiri Vesely

It hasn’t been the young Czech’s best year, falling to #124 in the world through inactivity. He has looked good at Wimbledon so far, beating both Alex Zverev and Pablo Cuevas in 4-set encounters. The grass court really does play to his strengths as a big server.

Prediction: Over 40.5 Games

We had success backing the Vesely over in his last match and I can see a similar style of match here. The odds between these two are very close and I’d expect at least 4 or 5 sets in this one. With the strong serves of both of these men, a 4-setter should eclipse this total most of the time.

Reilly Opelka vs Milos Raonic
Raonic -1.5 Sets

Reilly Opelka

Opelka had arguably the biggest win of his career last time out, a 5-set epic over Stan Wawrinka. This backs up a breakout campaign that will likely see him enter the top 50. Sporting such a large frame, you have to wonder the physical toll a 5-setter like that will take.

Milos Raonic

Raonic has rebounded nicely from a few injuries to earn the #15 seed for this tournament. He has had a relatively strong 2019 so far, going 18-7 in ATP singles matches. His path to the 3rd round has been simple, beating both Gunneswaran and Haase in straight sets.

Prediction: Raonic -1.5 Sets

Despite an impressive display last time out, I still think Opelka is the inferior player here. He won’t get a look in on Raonic’s serve and I expect him to struggle to hold up physically. It should be a relatively tight affair, but I still expect a Raonic win within 4 sets.

Karen Khachanov vs Roberto Bautista Agut
Khachanov $2.25

Karen Khachanov

Probably the best all-time server named Karen, the big Russian continues to fly under the radar. At just 23 years of age, he has excelled at Grand Slams this year, earning a top 10 seed for this tournament. He has impressed at Wimbledon so far, winning two tough 4-setters to reach this stage.

Roberto Bautista Agut

As consistent as they come, the veteran Spaniard enters this tournament as the #23 seed. He has had another fantastic year on tour, going 25-11 in ATP singles matches with 1 title. He is yet to drop a set so far, comfortably winning his first 2 matches in very quick time.

Prediction: Khachanov $2.25

I thought Khachanov was undervalued against Lopez and I continue to think he is here. While he is a solid opponent, Bautista Agut’s game just isn’t suited to the grass courts like Karen’s is. I expect Khachanov’s serve to carry him here as he gets a few crucial breaks to secure a 4 or 5-set win.

Wimbledon – Day 4

Mikhail Kukushkin vs John Isner
Over 38.5 Games

Mikhail Kukushkin

Kazakhstan’s finest since Borat, Kukushkin enters Wimbledon 2019 with a top 60 ranking. He has gone 10-15 in singles matches this season and just 1-3 on grass entering this tournament. His first round win over Pablo Andujar was very impressive, dropping just 9 games in the process.

John Isner

While not the same force he once was, Isner still sports a very impressive ranking of #12. The 34-year-old has had a very stellar campaign so far, going 16-7 in ATP Singles matches. He started the tournament strongly against Casper Ruud, winning in straight sets.

Prediction: Over 38.5 Games

These are two strong grass court players that both enter the match in relatively good form. I think breaks of serve will be hard to come by here and that we should be in for at least 1 tie-break. If we get 4 or more sets, I think this over is very likely to hit.

Nick Kyrgios vs Rafael Nadal
Kyrgios +4.5 Games

Nick Kyrgios

Kyrgios advances to the second round after beating compatriot Jordan Thompson in a 5-set epic first up. He was far from at his best, but did win 88% of points on his first serve. Kyrgios first burst onto the scene 5 years ago with a Wimbledon win over Nadal and will be looking to repeat that fate here.

Rafael Nadal

Even though he is the #3 seed for this tournament, the 33-year-old Nadal still sports the #2 ranking. He is enjoying another stellar campaign, winning Roland Garros and going 33-5 in singles matches. He was very clinical in round 1, comfortably beating Sugita in 3 sets.

Prediction: Kyrgios +4.5 Games

I expect there to be a fair amount of animosity between these men who don’t particularly like each other. Kyrgios is on his preferred surface here, while Nadal just isn’t the same player on grass. A motivated Kyrgios should be near untouchable on serve and has an outside shot at a $3.70 win, but I’ll take the +4.5 games for more security.

Steve Johnson vs Alex De Minaur
Johnson $2.25

Steve Johnson

The veteran American has struggled in 2019, going just 8-15 in singles matches before Wimbledon. That said, he has historically been an excellent grass court player and will fancy his chances here. He started his campaign very impressively, disposing of Ramos Vinolas in 3 relatively easy sets.

Alex De Minaur

The young Aussie is enjoying a breakout campaign going 14-10 in ATP singles matches and winning a title. His strong play this season has earned him the #25 seed, comfortably the best Aussie male currently on tour. He had a very nice round 1 win, bagelling Cecchinato in the first as he won in straight sets.

Prediction: Johnson $2.25

After a relatively poor campaign, I feel Johnson’s value is at a nadir in the betting market. I think he’s a better player than De Minaur on grass and should be the narrow favourite in this one. In a buy-low situation, I’ll take Johnson straight up to crash the Aussie party.

Wimbledon – Day 3

Pablo Cuevas vs Jiri Vesely
Over 37.5 Games

Pablo Cuevas

The Uruguayan veteran enters Wimbledon with a respectable Singles ranking of #45. Most of his damage has been done on the clay courts and he has historically struggled on the faster grass surface. He does sport a solid 18-13 record in 2019, although the conditions just don’t suit him here.

Jiri Vesely

After showing some brief flashes, Vesely has fallen all the way to #124 in the world rankings. He has only won 4 singles matches in 2019, largely struggling on the clay courts. His power and serve based game should thrive at Wimbledon and he is relatively heavily favoured here.

Prediction: Over 37.5 Games

While Vesely probably deserves to be favourite, I just can’t see him getting it done in straight sets. Cuevas is a consistent and reliable competitor that will make his opponent beat him here. In a 4-set ATP match on grass, you have to like the over at this relatively low number.

Stan Wawrinka vs Reilly Opelka
Opelka +4.5 Games

Stan Wawrinka

Wawrinka has had a respectable 2019 that saw him earn a ranking of #19 and the #22 seed for this tournament. He had a relatively impressive Roland Garros last month, beating both Dimitrov and Tsitsipas en route to the quarters. He has only played 2 grass court matches this season, going 1-1 overall.

Reilly Opelka

At just 21 years of age, the big-serving American already has secured a ranking of #63. Thought of as the next Jon Isner, his 6’11” frame gives him a huge edge on these Wimbledon courts. 2019 has been a breakout year so far, registering 12 ATP singles wins and his first ATP title.

Prediction: Opelka +4.5 Games

Opelka’s game is ideally suited to these conditions, while Wawrinka is a notoriously slow starter in grand slams. He knows he has the talent to beat Stan here and his serve can help bail him out of trouble. I think he takes a set even if he comes up short, making +4.5 games look like very solid value.

Karen Khachanov vs Feliciano Lopez
Khachanov $1.78

Karen Khachanov

The big Russian has had a very solid but underrated campaign, moving up to #9 in the world. He looked solid in his opening round encounter, managing a relatively comfortable 4-set win. He did well making the Quarters at Roland Garros and I think his game lends itself even more to a grass court.

Feliciano Lopez

Even at 37 years of age, ‘Deliciano’ is still going strong on the ATP Tour. He sports a solid ranking of #54 and already has an ATP title this season. Known primarily for his serve and power, Wimbledon is his best surface, as he showed with a simple round 1 win.

Prediction: Khachanov $1.78

While Lopez is a tough opponent, I think such a high price undervalues Khachanov here. He has been a consistently solid fixture on the tour of late and his game really suits a grass surface. I just can’t see Lopez troubling his serve here, as he likely takes it out in 4 sets.

Wimbledon – Day 2

Taylor Fritz vs Tomas Berdych
Over 41.5 Games

Taylor Fritz

Fritz has steadily climbed the rankings in recent years, finding himself in the solid spot of #42. He does have a below .500 singles record this year, falling in the second round of Roland Garros. Known primarily for an excellent serve, the grass at Wimbledon should play to his strengths.

Tomas Berdych

Now 33 years of age, the Berd man has fallen to a ranking of #112. He has impressed in limited action in 2019, registering a solid 12-6 singles record. Another man renowned for his elite serve and power, he shouldn’t struggle to hold on the fast Wimbledon courts.

Prediction: Over 41.5 Games

With two relatively evenly matched players, I’m expecting a match that goes at least 4 sets in this one. I can’t see many breaks of serve and expect at least a tie-break or two. The number for this one is a little bit too low and I ultimately see some value on the over.

Dominic Thiem vs Sam Querrey
Thiem $1.67

Dominic Thiem

Thiem has emerged as the best player outside the big 3, comfortably holding the #4 ranking. He is 23-9 in 2019, registering 2 ATP titles and a Grand Slam Final appearance. Known more as a clay-court specialist, Wimbledon has historically been his weakest surface.

Sam Querrey

Even after 13 years on tour, the big-serving American is still going strong. He sports a top 80 ranking and an above .500 singles record in 2019. His serve and power game is ideally suited to the grass of Wimbledon.

Prediction: Thiem $1.67

While this is a tricky matchup for Thiem, I believe he’s playing the best tennis of his career. His improved serve should help him significantly here and I’d expect to see a victory within 4 sets.

Nick Kyrgios vs Jordan Thompson
Kyrgios -1.5 Sets

Nick Kyrgios

The mercurial Aussie is somehow still in the top 50, managing an above .500 record in 2019. He still remains one of the most dangerous threats on tour and possesses a game ideally suited to the Wimbledon surface. You have to question his headspace, after some curious recent withdrawals and disqualifications.

Jordan Thompson

After battling hard on tour for years now, Jordan Thompson finally has a well-deserved top 50 ranking. Despite playing a lot of Challenger’s, he still has a solid 19-12 record in 2019. He doesn’t have the power of Kyrgios, but the Wimbledon grass should also help his game.

Prediction: Kyrgios -1.5 Sets $1.80

When he’s fully motivated, Kyrgios is easily a top 10 player on the current men’s tour. He loves playing on the grass at Wimbledon and has had the bulk of his Grand Slam success there. Even with a lack of preparation, his shear talent advantage makes him strong value to get the job done within 4 sets here.

2019 Wimbledon Tips & Preview

The year’s third Grand Slam has arrived, and we are set for two weeks of world-class tennis as the best players on the planet descend on London for Wimbledon 2019 from Monday. 

For the first time in a long time, Australia has someone serious to cheer for. Ash Barty enjoyed an outstanding campaign at Roland Garros which culminated in her first ever Grand Slam title, and she is subsequently the $5 favourite to win the Women’s Singles at Wimbledon.

In the Men’s Singles, the usual suspects tie the first few lines; Novak Djokovic is the $2.40 favourite from Roger Federer ($4) and Rafael Nadal ($6). 2019 Wimbledon betting suggests that Nick Kyrgios is Australia’s best chance of winning the Men’s Singles, but he remains a $26 outsider.

We’ll be providing free tips each and every day of Wimbledon 2019 but prior to first serve, you can find our outright 2019 Wimbledon tips, including best roughies below.

Men’s Singles
Our Tip – Novak Djokovic ($2.40)

It’s always difficult to look past one of the ‘big three’ in Grand Slam betting, but I am particularly confident that the market has this one right and that Novak Djokovic will be extremely difficult to beat at the All England Club.

He was utterly dominant at the Australia Open and has returned plenty of typically pleasing tournament results since; winning the Madrid Open and reaching the semis of the French Open, most notably. There is no doubt that he’ll relish a return to turf, and he can claim his sixteenth career Grand Slam title.

Best Roughie – Karen Khachanov ($41)

Tenth seed Karen Khachanov has continued to produce competitive performances against quality opponents in 2019 and he does look a touch of overs in 2019 Wimbledon betting at $41. The twenty-three-year-old has experienced something of a meteoric rise to prominence during the last couple of seasons and reached the fourth round of Wimbledon in 2018.

He reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last month before being eliminated by eventual finalist Dominic Thiem and he is primed for a competitive showing at the All England Club.

Women’s Singles
Our Tip – Serena Williams ($6)

I am a huge fan of the Barty Party and I would love to see Ash go bang-bang, two Grand Slams, but I simply cannot look past the value on offer for Serena Williams in 2019 Wimbledon betting.

Williams failed to fire at the French Open, but there is absolutely no denying her ability and record at Wimbledon – she has saluted here seven times previously. When the pressure goes on, there is no one more reliable on either side of the draw and I am more than happy to take the $6.

Best Roughie – Garbine Muguruza ($21)

In terms of outright betting, $21 might not look to be particularly ‘rough’ but given how open the WTA Tour has been for several seasons now, there’s plenty of value around several world-class players including Spaniard Garbine Muguruza.

Muguruza is a two-time Grand Slam champion, which includes the 2017 Wimbledon title and she is a player than tends to keep her best performances for the grass court season. She’ll obviously need to improve and she’ll require plenty of luck, but she also clearly has the class, at her best.

Roland Garros – Men’s Final

Rafael Nadal vs Dominic Thiem, 11 pm
Nadal 3-0 $2.15

Rafael Nadal

You’d be hard pressed to find a better run to a Grand Slam Final than what Nadal has delivered over the past fortnight. He’s dropped just one set the whole way through and hasn’t even been forced into a tie-break. His win over Roger Federer last time out was especially impressive, breaking serve 6 times in a straight sets win. Nadal’s serve has been excellent all tournament, consistently winning 75% of his first serve points.

Dominic Thiem

Thiem has also had a very impressive run, advancing against a tough trio of opponents in his last 3. He had two very solid wins in the 4th round and the quarters, beating #14 seed Monfils and #10 seed Khachanov in straight sets. His 5-setter against Novak Djokovic yesterday was particularly epic, winning 7-5 in the 5th. Now 24-5 in singles matches at Roland Garros, Thiem has cemented his status as one of the best clay court players in the world.

Prediction: Nadal 3-0 $2.15

While I’d usually give Thiem a set in this matchup, the schedulers have done him absolutely no favours here. Several rain delays in his match with Novak meant that he only finished his match around 24 hours before the start of this one. Nadal, on the other hand, is incredibly well rested following a comfortable defeat of Federer. Over a 5-set match, I think Nadal still has a significant edge here, as he showed in last year’s final. With the scheduling and rest advantage to boot, I like him in straights at $2.15.

Under 36.5 Games

Tying in with my above bet, I also really like the under 36.5 games market in this one. Assuming Nadal wins this one in straight sets, the final total likely ends up under 30 games. It also acts as a decent hedge in case Thiem pulls a set out as it could still very likely go under this number. The two of these men have combined for just 2 tie-breaks all tournament, making me think we should be in for some low scoring sets. At $1.85, I think there’s a decent chance of this bet cashing.

Roland Garros – Women’s Final

Ash Barty vs Marketa Vondrousova, 11 pm
Barty $1.60

Ash Barty

While she has faced a very kind draw so far, Barty deserves a huge amount of credit for making it this far. She delivered another solid display in her semi-final with Anisimova, overcoming a 1st set hiccup to win in 3. This is far and away her best run at Roland Garros to date, having previously only made the 2nd round. Barty enters this final in career best form, sporting a very strong 30-5 WTA singles record this year.

Marketa Vondrousova

Vondrousova’s road to this point has been anything but easy, beating 4 straight seeded opponents. She hasn’t dropped a set all tournament so far and has only been taken to a tie-break twice. Her win against Jo Konta yesterday was particularly impressive, utilizing her excellent serve to win a competitive affair. Just 19 years of age, she now finds herself with a very strong 28-6 WTA singles record this season.

Barty Moneyline $1.60

Entering this tournament as the #8 seed, it’s safe to say that Barty is a much more established player than her opponent. She has produced at a consistently high level this season and looks poised for the #2 rank next week. Her return game has been excellent all tournament and I think she can nullify Vondrousova’s serve. While the set and handicap markets are sometimes difficult with Ash, I think there is strong value on her winning straight up at $1.60.

Barty 1st set 6-3 $5.40

I’m going for an outside the box play here to try and maximize value on this match. 6-3 is easily the most common victory margin for Barty this tournament, winning at least 1 set 6-3 in 5 of her matches so far. Her relatively strong serve game means she rarely gets broken, usually ending a single or double break up on her opponent. I expect Ash to be the less nervous of these two before the match, meaning she should start well. A 6-3 or 6-4 1st set win is very likely here and I’ll take the value on 6-3 at $5.40

Roland Garros – Semi Finals

Ash Barty vs Amanda Anisimova, 7 pm
Barty -2.5 Games

Ash Barty

The draw has definitely opened up for Ash Barty and she looks a real shout to win this tournament outright. After a rain delay the night before, she disposed of #14 seed Madison Keys in straight sets last time out. Barty’s serve has been on point all tournament, winning 81% of points on her first serve yesterday.

Amanda Anisimova

The relatively unheralded 17-year-old American has had a very impressive run to reach this point. She has been especially clinical against seeded opponents, comfortably beating Sabalenka and Halep in straight sets. This is easily her best finish at a grand slam to date, having never won a Roland Garros match before.

Prediction: Barty -2.5 Games

Ultimately, I think Barty is the better and more experienced player in this matchup. She is having an outstanding year to date and hasn’t looked in trouble all tournament. I expect Anisimova to be very nervous here and expect Barty to capitalize and cover this relatively small line.

Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal, 8:50 pm
Federer +2.5 Sets

Roger Federer

Federer showed that he is still more than capable at this level, dropping just one set en route to a Semi-Finals appearance. The draw has admittedly been very kind to him, with only Stan Wawrinka standing out as a tough opponent. His first serve is outstanding even on clay, consistently winning over 75% of points on first serves.

Rafael Nadal

Likewise, the king of clay has had a relatively comfortable journey to this point, dropping just 1 set in the process. He rebounded over a tough 4-setter against David Goffin to beat both Juan Londero and Kei Nishikori in straight sets. Nadal’s defence is looking as good as ever, managing 7 breaks of serve against Nishikori last time out.

Prediction: Federer +2.5 Sets

While I do expect Nadal to win this match, I think Federer definitely has the quality to take at least 1 set. This could very well be his last French Open and I expect him to lay it all on the line here. As long as his first serve holds up well, I think we’re in for a very competitive affair in this one.

Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem, 10:50 pm
Djokovic -3.5 Games

Novak Djokovic

The Djoker had one of the more impressive wins in the tournament last time out, comfortably beating Alex Zverev in straight sets. This capped off a dominant run to the Semis, where Novak hasn’t dropped a set or even faced a tie-break so far. His serve has been almost as good as his defence this tournament, consistently winning 85% of points on first serves.

Dominic Thiem

After struggling somewhat in the early matches, Thiem has really rounded into form of late. He backed up a dominant win over Gael Monfils with a very impressive win against the #10 seed Khachanov last time out. This sets up a rematch for him against Novak, who he lost to in two tie-breaks in Madrid a month ago.

Prediction: Djokovic -3.5 Games

With the form Novak is in, it’s tough to see anyone but Nadal getting the better of him in this tournament. Thiem is an excellent clay court player, but I think Novak’s elite defence and groundstrokes will prove too much here. Laying just 3.5 games in this one, I expect a fair few breaks from Novak that get him the win and cover.

Roland Garros – Quarter Finals

Ash Barty vs Madison Keys, 10 pm
Over 21.5 Games

Ash Barty

Barty continued her fine Roland Garros form last time out, getting past Sofia Kenin in a relatively comfortable 3-set affair. Despite facing a bit of a setback in the 2nd set, she roared back with a dominant 6-0 3rd set to seal the win. In career-best form, Barty definitely has a shot to pull off this grand slam outright.

Madison Keys

After breaking out on the scene a couple of years ago, the 24-year-old American finds herself as the #14 seed for this tournament. She has had a relatively solid run so far, dropping only 2 sets through her first 4 matches. Keys is admittedly having an average at best season, winning only 10 of her first 17 games on tour this year.

Prediction: Over 21.5 Games

While I think Barty gets the job done here, it may not be as easy as some of her earlier matches. Keys is a strong opponent at this level and should enjoy the power and athleticism advantage over Barty. I expect at least two competitive sets in this one as a match that could easily go the distance.

Novak Djokovic vs Alex Zverev, 11:15 pm
Over 32.5 Games

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic has waltzed into the Quarters with relative ease, failing to drop a set so far. The 32-year-old has been so dominant that he’s yet to drop more than 4 games in a single set. This only continues another very solid campaign for the world #1, winning 23 of his first 28 matches in 2019.

Alex Zverev

Despite his fair share of tough matches, the enigmatic German has made it through to the quarters. He was particularly impressive against Italian Fabio Fognini last time out, winning outright in 4 despite starting as an underdog. He came into this tournament in fine form, winning a lead-up event in Geneva a fortnight ago.

Prediction: Over 32.5 Games

Novak is definitely in fine form at the moment, but he just hasn’t faced a player of Zverev’s quality yet. The young German has the power and technique to worry Djokovic at times, meaning we should be in for a few very competitive sets. I think Zverev has a definite shot at winning a set here, or at least forcing a tie-break or two.

Dominic Thiem vs Karen Khachanov, 11:15 pm
Thiem -4.5 Games

Dominic Thiem

The young Austrian continued his excellent recent form with a hugely impressive straight-sets win over Gael Monfils last time out. Thiem’s elite defence was on full display as he broke Monfils 5 times en route to a comfortable victory. It seems the Serena Williams feud has only elevated his game, following up on a very strong clay court season so far.

Karen Khachanov

While he has gone somewhat under the radar, the big Russian entered this tournament with a top 10 seed. He waltzed through each of his first 3 matches before standing up to del Potro last time out. This comes off the back of a relatively poor season for Khachanov, who was only 10-12 on the season before this.

Prediction: Thiem -4.5 Games

Thiem hugely impressed me against Monfils and I think he has an even bigger matchup advantage here. The big serving and power game of Khachanov is more suited to faster courts and I can see him struggling against Thiem’s defence. While it may not be in straight sets, I feel as though Thiem wins this relatively comfortably and covers the small handicap.

Roland Garros – Day 10

Stan Wawrinka vs Roger Federer, 10 pm
Over 37.5 Games

Stan Wawrinka

Wawrinka enters this contest in some excellent form, beating Dimitrov in straight sets before an epic 5-set win over Tsitsipas last time out. He served particularly well against Tsitsipas, serving 16 aces to just 3 double faults and winning 71% of points on his first serve. Wawrinka will no doubt be desperate to win this, having lost 22 of 25 times against Roger previously.

Roger Federer

Roger enters this match in some impeccable form of his own, yet to drop a set for the entire tournament. While he hasn’t faced a seeded player yet, he’s only been pushed to a tiebreak in 1 of 12 sets. Although clay isn’t his best surface, Federer still boasts an impressive 80%-win percentage at Roland Garros.

Prediction: Over 37.5 Games

There’s no love lost between these two countrymen and I expect another very competitive affair here. They’re both in spectacular form and should head into this one full of confidence. I’m expecting at least 4 sets of hard fought tennis here with a tie-break or two thrown in, making over 37.5 look like strong value.

Sloane Stephens vs Johanna Konta, 10 pm
Stephens -0.5 Games

Sloane Stephens

Stephens continues to impress with her excellent recent play, dispatching of Muguruza in straight sets last time out. She has backed up her strong clay court season by only dropping 1 set in 4 matches so far. Now 24-7 in her Roland Garros career, this is statistically her best grand slam.

Johanna Konta

Sydney’s own has been just as impressive of Sloane of late, dropping only 1 set en route to the quarters. She has enjoyed a relatively strong start to 2019, winning 21 of her first 30 matches and earning the #26 seed for this tournament. She has notoriously struggled at Roland Garros previously, never winning a match before this year.

Prediction: Stephens -0.5 Games

While she is in good form this year, Konta just hasn’t beaten a player of Sloane’s calibre on clay in such a high-profile match. Her game lends itself to a much faster surface and I expect Sloane’s defensive ability to prove too much here. I do like the Sloane moneyline at $1.72, but such a small handicap at $1.80 appears better value.

Marketa Vondrousova vs Petra Martic
Over 21.5 Games

Marketa Vondrousova

The 19-year-old Czech has arguably been the form player on the women’s draw this tournament, not dropping a set all tournament. She’s been so dominant that she hasn’t even been pushed to a tiebreak, beating seeds Suarez Navarro and Sevastova in the process. Her first serve has been excellent all tournament, regularly getting it in almost 70% of the time.

Petra Martic

The veteran Croat has also enjoyed a strong run to the quarters, dropping just 1 set in the process. Her win over the #2 seed Pliskova in straight sets was arguably the upset of the tournament. This is officially her deepest run in any grand slam, having only won 33% of matches at Roland Garros previously.

Prediction: Over 21.5 Games

Without having made it this far before, I expect both of these women to be nervous in this one. It should be a tight contest with a lot of unforced errors on both sides. While Vondrousova is rightly favoured, I think this one likely goes to 3 sets, meaning strong value on over 21.5.
