French Open: Slice into these top tips for Saturday from our traders

The eyes of the tennis world are fixed on the red stuff at Roland-Garros and we’ve twisted the arms of our knowledgeable traders for their picks today.


Andrea Petkovic v Ashleigh Barty: Most Double Faults: Barty – 11/10

Saturday also sees Australia’s first lady of tennis Ash Barty facing off against German vetern Andrea Petkovic.

Although the pair are known as some of the bigger servers on the women’s tour, both players have averaged close to 0.3 Double faults per game on clay during the last year, (Petkovic .31/Game. Barty .29/Game), making Barty a good value punt to falter the most on her serve at 11/10.

Thompson v Del Potro: Both Players to Win a Set (Yes/No): Yes – 4/7

Long-time punter favourite Juan Martin Del Potro faces Aussie Jordan Thompson in what will be a tricky third round match for the Argentine.

After missing the Australian Open following long term injury, Del Potro has been shaky losing three of his last nine match – having not won more than two matches in-a-row since his return.

In this year’s French Open Del Potro has dropped three sets in his opening two games against considerably weaker opponents. Conversely, Thompson is on a steady run so far winning his first match 3-0 when priced as a similar underdog against Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. The Aussie also handily disposed of Ivo Karlovic in the second round 3-1 making both players to win a set great value at 4/7.
