Quarter Betting French Open Predictions
Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic is bidding to hold all four Grand Slams at the same time in Paris and he has enjoyed a solid clay court season so far. The Serb has tended to save his best tennis for the big events over the past 12 months and he looks to be the hot favourite at 8/13 with Ladbrokes to emerge victorious from quarter 1.
Number 5 seed Alexander Zverev arrives in Paris fresh off the back of a win at the Geneva Open and the German will be looking to hit the ground running here. He hasn’t enjoyed his best year on the tour but at 6/1 with Bwin, he could be the good value selection from the top quarter.
Italian clay court specialist Fabio Fognini is seeded 9th in Paris and should arrive in good form following his Monte Carlo Masters victory last month. He is a potent force on the ‘dirt’ and will fancy his chances at 14/1 with Bet365 of winning the quarter.
Young Croat Borna Coric is a man making a name for himself at the top table of men’s tennis and although he isn’t renowned for his clay court prowess, he could certainly cause some damage in a packed quadrant. He is an outside shot at 16/1 with Betsson but he is worth keeping an eye on.
2018 finalist Dominic Thiem has been the form player on the ATP Tour in 2019 and his title wins in Indian Wells and Barcelona have been testament to that. The Austrian enjoys playing on clay and looks great value at 5/4 with 888sport to win the second quarter and reach the semi-finals.
Juan Martin del Potro continues to struggle with injury problems on the ATP Tour but with a run to the semi-finals last year in the bag, he looks well placed to make another assault on the draw. The Argentine is 6/1 with Betsafe to reach the last 4 again this season.
Big hitting Russian Karen Khachanov is a man capable of producing on the biggest stage, epitomised by his win at the Paris Masters last November. He may not enjoy clay court tennis too much though and looks a long shot at 10/1 with TonyBet.
Enigmatic Frenchman Gael Monfils will have home support backing him all the way in Paris and he looks to be back to somewhere near his best. Producing the goods in Grand Slams has always been a problem for him but at 20/1 with Royal Panda he could be a shrewd outside punt.
Greek superstar Stefanos Tsitsipas has emerged as one of the major players on the ATP Tour and is seeded 6th at Roland Garros this year. He has produced some remarkable tennis on the clay this season and is the 12/5 favourite with Betfred to progress from quarter three.
Roger Federer is playing his first French Open since 2015 and he looks set to go the distance this season. He has histroicaly struggled on clay at times but at 11/4 with Bet-at-Home he could be a good bet to reach yet another semi-final.
Fellow Swiss great and 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka has made a solid return from an injury laden 2018 and will be pleased to be back in action on the clay. His lack of top level tennis recently justifies his odds of 8/1 with Guts but he will fancy his chances here.
Diminutive Argentine Diego Schwartzman was deemed by many to be very unlucky when losing out to Rafael Nadal last year in the quarter finals and he always enjoys playing on clay. He is in a congested quarter but shouldn’t be completely ignored at 11/1 with William Hill.
Eleven-time champion Rafael Nadal is in hot pursuit of a 12th French Open title, despite not playing his best tennis this season – with his only tournament win coming at the Italian Open. His clay court record is impeccable and Nadal looks well placed at 1/4 with MansionBet to reach the last 4.
Number 7 seed Kei Nishikori enjoys playing on clay and has been in good form for most of 2019. He may not have the weapons to hurt Nadal though and is a fair price at 10/1 with BetHard.
Daniil Medvedev has picked up some serious scalps this season, including beating Novak Djokovic in Barcelona on his way to the final but he could have his work cut out here. The Russian is 16/1 with 888sport to reach his maiden Grand Slam semi-final.
Belgian number one David Goffin has been in decent form this season without pulling up too many trees. He enjoys playing on clay but doesn’t look too likely to cause an upset at 33/1 with Royal Panda.
