A thoroughly entertaining first week at the French Open continues apace with a Saturday schedule stuffed with competitive fare.
That means plenty of close betting heats and an accompanying array of attractive looking prices for clay-court punting aficionados.
Try these six on for size…
Only four world-ranking positions separate this pair, but Ivanovic has won all seven of their previous meetings (five inside the last two years) for the loss of a single set, with three of the last four victories over her opponent coming on dirt.
Favourite CSN has performed well here in recent years but she’s lost all bar one of her four encounters with Cibulkova, who has prevailed seven of her last eight clay outings, with the only loss in that time coming in the final of the Madrid WTA.
The selection hasn’t been seen much this year, but continues making amends in Paris, having seen off Victoria Azarenka (with the aid of an injury) en route to this stage.
Having bested her opponent in straight sets on the Nurnberg clay last year in their sole previous showdown, her odds look to be generous.
Keys has been in tremendous form so far in the dirt segment, with only Serena Williams able to halt her charge in the final of the Rome WTA.
However, Puig is in very determined mood (as her 7-5,6-7,7-5 success over Julia Goerges in round two showed) and she has beaten the American in both their past orange court tangles, without dropping a set.
Betting against the loveable bear Jo-Wilf is hard to stomach, but the mercurial Gulbis has beaten him in their last two encounters.
Hard court is comfortably the Uruguayan’s worst surface, while it is one of the decks that favours his Czech foe most.
The fact that the former toppled the latter on the Beijing macadam last year suggests he’s dangerous on a court type more sympathetic to his needs.
