Betting on Novak Djokovic (-1,500)
After breezing through the first two rounds with relative ease, Novak Djokovic survived his biggest test in this year’s French Open as he outlasted Diego Sebastian Schwartzman in a five-set war, 5-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-1.
Djokovic’s serve was once again shaky as he was broken four times for the second time in three matches. Meanwhile, he committed 55 unforced errors—21 in the first set alone—after having just 53 through the first two rounds. But on the bright side, the Serb’s return game has remained strong. He’s won at least 47 percent of return points in all three of his matches.
The Djoker’s form this season has been erratic to say the least, but he should nevertheless be a good bet to make his eighth consecutive French Open quarterfinal when he meets Albert Ramos-Vinolas. The World No. 2 is a perfect 3-0 against the Argentine in his career. He won their lone meeting on clay back in 2015, and also won their most recent meeting at a Davis Cup match earlier this year.
Betting on Albert Ramos-Vinolas (+800)
Albert Ramos-Vinolas’ career year continues. The 29-year-old picked up win No. 21 on clay this season as he edged out World No. 14 Lucas Pouille in five sets, 6-2, 3-6, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1. The Argentine was sloppy with his serve, as he won just 63 percent of his first serve points. However, he made up for it with eight breaks of the Frenchman’s serve. He now has seven or more break points in all three matches to date.
Ramos-Vinolas, who finally cracked the top 20 in the world for the first time this year, has reached two tournament finals, both coming on clay. And after an unconvincing buildup to the French Open, he’s now one win away from reaching back-to-back quarterfinals at Roland Garros.
Ramos-Vinolas doesn’t have the greatest record against top opposition. He’s just 5-28 in his career against top-10 opponents. However, two of those wins have come this season alone, one of which was a huge scalp of World No. 1 Andy Murray in the Monte Carlo Masters earlier this year.
Djokovic (-1,500) bounces back from his rough performance as he beats Ramos-Vinolas in four sets.
