Don’t miss our two top tennis plays for this Wednesday’s action in Paris with the players from the top half of the draw fighting for a place in the 3rd round on the women’s competition. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixtures below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Bacsinszky vs. Brengle
After defeating Sara Sorribes Tormo on her debut, Timea Bacsinszky improved her winning record in Paris to 83.33% in the past three years. Besides losing only three games in the opening round, Bacsinszky ended the match with outstanding numbers – 23 winners / 17 unforced errors and 68.18% points won on Sorribes Tormo’s serve.
At the age of 27, Madison Brengle makes into the 2nd round of Roland Garros for the first time in her career. Due to her lack of success in recent months on the WTA Tour, Brengle decided to return to the ITF Tour in order to restore her confidence. Looking now at Madison’s campaign on this event, the world no.82 reaches this stage of the competition after an outstanding comeback against Julia Goerges.
Despite Brengle’s improvements on recent months, Bacsinszky should be too strong for the American. For that reason, it’s not surprising to see Timea as the heavy favourite at 1/4 at Pinnacle while Brengle is available at 333/100 at Bet365. Due to the low price on Bacsinszky’s moneyline, our suggestion is to place a bet on the Swiss to win this match in straight sets at 83/100 at Coral.
Errani vs. Mladenovic
Despite her outstanding results in recent months, Kristina Mladenovic may not be at 100% for this Wednesday’s match. After a very poor performance against Jennifer Brady in the previous round, Mladenovic said that she has been struggling with a back injury in the last few days. Adding to this, Kristina didn’t seem to handle very well the pressure of being one of the favourites on this year’s edition of Roland Garros.
Whenever Sara Errani steps on court one thing is certain, the Italian will fight until the last point. After a slow start to 2017, Errani is slowly returning to her best level. Besides winning three matches in the qualifying, Sara proved too strong for Misaki Doi in the opening round. Taking a look now at Errani’s numbers in the previous match, the highlight goes to her baseline consistency with only 11 unforced errors in the entire match.
Due to the concerns regarding Mladenovic’s physical condition, it’s impossible to trust on the French at this moment. On the other hand, Sara is always a fearful opponent on this surface. Therefore, the value is definitely on Errani’s tennis betting odds with the Italian available at 2/1 at Pinnacle while William Hill offers 11/25 for Kristina’s victory.
