French Open Tennis 2024 – Day 10 Tips and Betting Preview

The quarter finals of the French Open get up and running on Tuesday when half of the last eight matches in the two singles draws will be played out on the Philippe Chatrier Court on an exciting day at Roland Garros.

We have no fewer than five Grand Slam winners in the eight players who are on show on Tuesday and another two have been beaten in a final at this level so the quality on offer is going to be of the highest level.

Day 9 Recap

It was a very entertaining day on the two show courts on Monday with two five set matches in the men’s draw and a couple of four setters as well while things were much more straightforward for the favourites in the women’s draw. Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev outlasted their opponents in deciding sets while Casper Ruud and Alex de Minaur overcame Taylor Fritz and Daniil Medvedev respectively. There were straight sets wins for Elena Rybakina, Aryna Sabalenka and Mirra Andreeva while Jasmine Paolini came through in three.

It was another winning day for us betting wise with the match between Novak Djokovic and Francisco Cerundolo comfortably containing more than 3.5 sets. The bet was in after two sets when the Argentine levelled things up at a set apiece but it went on to go 2-2 before Djokovic came through in the end. That was a positive for us while we still have hopes of some outright returns in the form of Casper Ruud, who made it into the last eight.

Coco Gauff vs Ons Jabeur

The opening quarter final sees the reigning US Open champion taking on the Wimbledon finalist as Coco Gauff meets Ons Jabeur in what should be an entertaining way to get the day underway, albeit one I believe the American will come out on top in.

These two met for the most recent time at the WTA Finals in Mexico at the back end of 2023 and Gauff won for the loss of just one game. That sort of thing leaves an impression on the player who suffers such a beating and the problem Jabeur has here is Gauff has the power to hit through the court in the slow conditions so while I don’t expect this to be quite as convincing as that match in Mexico, I do think the American is a good thing here. The odds reflect that though and we should remember that Gauff is still quite young and is under a lot of pressure so this is a match I am more than happy to leave alone.

Iga Swiatek vs Marketa Vondrousova

The other quarter final from the women’s draw on Tuesday sees Iga Swiatek looking to continue her title defence when she squares off against the Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova for the fourth time in her career.

Swiatek already leads the Czech 3-0 so far and it is hard to believe that on this surface the way the Polish world number one is playing right now that she won’t extend that advantage to 4-0 here. The question is how ruthless will she be in winning the match. Swiatek has dropped a set in this tournament but that was when the incredibly powerful and fearless Naomi Osaka was hitting everything clean in the second round but either side of that this tournament has been a procession for the clay court specialist. Vondrousova has taken Swiatek to a tiebreak in the opening set of their last two meetings but they were on a hard court where the Pole isn’t quite as comfortable. The Czech has also dropped a set in this tournament, to Katie Volynets, but hers was 6-0 and you have to feel like Swiatek could easily come up with a very one-sided set here. These two met here in 2020 and Swiatek won for the loss of three games. I don’t give Vondrousova many more here so I like the under 18.5 games in this one.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Jannik Sinner

The first of the men’s quarter finals closes out the day session and it does so when the Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner looks to remain unbeaten in Grand Slams in 2024 when he goes up against the Bulgarian star Grigor Dimitrov.

These two met in the final of the Miami Open earlier in the year and Sinner blew Dimitrov away and on a clay court there is an expectation that he wins this easily too but the Bulgarian is playing some good tennis this season and cruised past Hubert Hurkacz in the previous round even though many thought the Pole would cause him some issues. There were concerns over an injury to Sinner at the start of the tournament but despite dropping the odd set here or there, when he has found his range in matches he has looked very good. You would imagine he’ll have too much power for Dimitrov in this one but I respect the form of the Bulgarian enough to sit and watch this one rather than bet on it.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Carlos Alcaraz

The night session match closes out the show on Tuesday evening when two of the stars of the sport collide under the lights on the Philippe Chatrier Court when the former finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on the Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz.

This has all the makings of being an absolute blockbuster clash because Tsitsipas has been performing very well on the clay this season and Alcaraz, despite worries over injury heading into the tournament, has clearly got better with every performance and if both continue on that trajectory then we should be in for something special. I think Tsitsipas has something to find based on their previous meetings but this surface might just help that to happen. I still think Alcaraz will win this one and there is the fear that he dominates like he has in their recent battles but something is telling me the Greek will be more competitive here. This is one of those showdowns that if you love the sport you don’t need a bet on it to enjoy it and I’m not going to have one.
