Betting on the Sloane Stephens (+158)
Ranked 64th in the world, Stephens has overcome a shaky start to his campaign at the 2022 French Open women’s singles to reach the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, again. In the first round, Stephens survived a first-set loss to Jule Niemeier to score a 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 victory. She followed the same route in the second round, as Stephens defeated Romanian and world no. 26 Sorana Cirstea in three sets, 3-6, 6-2, 6-0. It appears that Stephens has finally solved his early-match jitters with back-to-back straight-set victories in the third and fourth rounds over Diane Parry and Jil Teichmann, respectively. Stephens, who will be playing in the third quarterfinals in her career at the French Open, won the only meeting so far she and Gauff have had so far. Sloane beat Gauff in the second round of the 2021 US Open, 6-4 6-2.
Betting on the Coco Gauff (-195)
Unlike Stephens, Gauff is not having much trouble starting hot in matches at the 2022 French Open. After taking care of business in the opening round by beating Rebecca Marino (7-5 6-0), Gauff beat Alison Van Uytvanck (6-1 7-6(4)) in the second round, Kaia Kanepi (6-3 6-4) in the third round, and Elise Mertens (6-4 6-0) in the fourth round. Having not lost a single set in the tournament thus far – and also being the younger player in her upcoming matchup – Gauff should come into the quarterfinals with much fresher legs than Stephens. Against Marino, Gauff dismantled her opponent by also capitalizing on break point opportunities, going 6/12 on break points won. Gauff also won 67 percent of her first-serve points. This will be Gauff’s second time to play in the quarterfinals round of any grand slam event, as he also reached the quarters in last year’s edition of the French Open women’s singles tournament, where she lost to Tunisian, Ons Jabeur.
Gauff wins in three sets.
