Playing in Paris is always special for the 2012 French Open runner-up – Sara Errani. Besides reaching the final, Errani won 81.48% of the matches on this event since the 2012 edition. Due to her low ranking, Sara had to play the qualifying for the first time since 2007. As we mentioned in the previous analysis, playing the qualifying is usually an advantage in the first rounds. Adding to this, Errani was absolutely superb throughout the qualifying stage with three overwhelming victories against Sara Cakarevic, Veronika Kudermetova, and Nicole Gibbs.

After a slow start to 2017, Misaki Doi is slowly returning to her best level. However, there are some doubts regarding Doi’s physical conditions after her retirement last week from the WTA Nurnberg semifinals against Kiki Bertens due to an abdominal injury. Adding to this, Misaki’s career record in Roland Garros is far from impressive with the Japanese winning only one match in the main draw in five appearances.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Errani emerging victorious from their previous encounter four years ago in Beijing by 6 – 3 6 – 2.

Due to Errani’s outstanding campaign in the qualifying and phenomenal record in Roland Garros, it’s impossible to go against the Italian at the moment. On the other hand, it’s not certain that Doi will be at 100% for this Monday’s match. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Sara’s tennis odds by placing a bet on Errani to win this match. Even though the price on the moneyline is not very high, it’s the best approach for this contest due to the possibility of Misaki’s retirement.

Mariana Duque-Marino vs. Irina-Camelia Begu

Playing on clay brings the best out of Irina-Camelia Begu with the Romanian winning 67.65% of the matches on red dirt throughout her career while her overall record on other surfaces is only 50.42%. In addition to her brilliant numbers on clay, Begu also holds a great record in Roland Garros after reaching the 3rd round in 2015 and the 4th round last season. Taking a look now at Irina’s campaign in recent weeks, the world no.46 arrives in Paris after winning 64.23% of the matches played on clay in 2017.

As it happens with most of the South-American players, clay is without any doubt Mariana Duque-Marino’s favorite surface. Despite her undeniable quality on red dirt, Duque-Marino’s career record in Roland Garros is far from brilliant with the Colombian winning only 42.86% of the matches on this event’s main draw. Adding to this, Mariana is also famous for her inconsistency, one of the main reasons why she’s currently outside the top 100.

These two players will face each other for the 2nd time in their careers with Begu winning their previous meeting at the 2011 ITF Cali by 6 – 1 6 – 0.

This should be a very interesting contest between two outstanding clay-court players. However, Begu’s higher experience at this level should be crucial for her success. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Begu to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.
