French Open tennis multi selections for Tuesday, May 30

Roland Garros French Open betting
ROLAND Garros is upon us, and already the first round has claimed some notable casualties.

The women’s draw was opened right up on Sunday when Angelique Kerber – the top seed in Serena Williams’ absence – was ousted in straight sets by Ekaterina Makarova.

Also out of action are Roberta Vinci and Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, who failed to back up her excellent run at the Australian Open.

The men’s draw has lost a few sizeable names as well.

Bernard Tomic was no match for Austria’s Dominic Thiem, losing 6-4, 6-0, 6-2.

Gilles Muller also faltered at the first hurdle, going down in four sets to the unseeded Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

Will we see any more upsets over the remainder of the first round?

Here are our top tips for the singles action on Tuesday.

Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Nick Kyrgios

These two have never met in singles play. Kohlschreiber is an experienced performer at this level, but he has not made it to the fourth round of any Grand Slam event since 2014. While Kyrgios has yet to pass the third round in Paris, he has now reached that mark twice in a row. Get on the talented youngster to overcome his hip issues and give the Aussie fans a glimmer of hope.

Timea Babos vs. Alize Cornet

Both these mid-rangers enjoyed strong starts to 2017. Babos won her home event, the Budapest Open, while Cornet navigated the likes of Dominika Cibulkova and Garbine Muguruza en route to the Brisbane International final. No head-to-head history makes it a tough one to call, but we like Cornet to advance in front of a friendly audience.

Juan Martin del Potro vs. Guido Pella

Is Juan Martin back for real? A tough run of draws saw the big Argentine lose to Novak Djokovic three times in the space of five events earlier this year, but he looks fitter and stronger now than he has in years. While Pella has done well to get this far via the qualifying rounds, he should prove no match for his compatriot.

Eugenie Bouchard vs. Risa Ozaki

Bouchard has fallen someway short of expectations so far in her young career. Too often she has crumbled at the first time of asking this season, although she looked much better en route to the quarters at Madrid last time out. The Canadian has a winning record and a rankings edge over Ozaki, so she ought to fancy her chances here.

Ernesto Escobedo vs. Denis Istomin

It is hard to say how good ‘Neto’ Escobedo really is. Only 20 years of age, he is already being touted as the future of the US men’s tennis ranks. He has a mercurial opponent first up in Denis Istomin, who has battled fitness and form since his impressive run at the Australian Open. While Escobedo has reached the second round in his last two Grand Slam starts, our vote goes to the Uzbek journeyman.

Alison Riske vs. Barbora Strycova

These two have not met on the court since Riske was a teenager back in 2011. While she lost on that occasion, the 26-year-old American has put in some strong displays against higher-ranked players on a number of occasions in 2017. Strycova is a tough and experienced opponent, however, and the 17th seed might sniff a chance of unexpected silverware with some big names already out.
