Join us and find out our two top betting selections for WTA French Open Day 3. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab these two valuable tennis picks.

Laura Siegemund vs Eugenie Bouchard
The last months have been outstanding for Laura Siegemund, with the German currently with her highest career ranking as world no.37. Siegemund made some terrific runs lately, but the highlight clearly goes to her journey in Stuttgart – where Laura started as a qualifier and only lost in the final against Angelique Kerber. The German can mix things up very well with powerful groundstrokes, tricky slices and delightful drop shots. Clay is clearly Siegemund’s favorite surface, where her drop shots are even more effective.

Eugenie Bouchard is still trying to return to her best level after a disappointing year of 2015. Bouchard is a super aggressive player, always trying to hit the ball early and not giving any time to her opponents yet, that game style requires an enormous amount of confidence. Eugenie achieved two very good wins recently in Rome against Jelena Jankovic and Angelique Kerber however, she was a complete disaster on the following match against Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, losing by 1 – 6 0 – 6. The Canadian will be looking for a better performance this season in Paris, after losing on her debut last year against Kristina Mladenovic.

This will be the first career meeting between these two players and even though Siegemund’s outstanding results lately, Bouchard is the more experienced of the two with Laura playing her first career match on this event’s main draw. Eugenie loves to compete on the big stages and her highest experience might be determinant on this match yet, it will be very hard for the Canadian to win this in two easy sets. We expect a very close match between these two players and for that reason, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your tennis picks on a match that should only be decided on a third set.

Elina Svitolina (18) vs Sorana Cirstea (q)
After a terrific start of year, where Elina Svitolina won the title in Kuala Lumpur and reached Dubai’s semifinals, the Ukrainian is still trying to find her best tennis on clay after winning only one of the four matches she played on this surface in 2016. Despite those recent losses, Svitolina is a fearful competitor, especially on the big stages and her campaign in Paris last year is a good example of that, with Elina reaching the quarterfinals.

The last years haven’t been easy for Sorana Cirstea with the Romanian struggling with a shoulder injury. Cirstea is a former world no.21 and she’s always a dangerous player with her powerful game yet, she’s known for struggling to maintain a consistent level and this is her first match against a top 20 opponent since August 2014. Due to her low ranking, Soarana had to play the qualifying where she was quite impressive, not losing a single set on her three matches against Yuxuan Zhang, Jana Cepelova and Elise Mertens.

These two players will face each other for the first time and it should be a very interesting match-up, with Cirstea’s firepower in contrast with Svitolina’s tremendous defensive skills. Even though Sorana’s solid victories on the qualifying stage, this time she’ll face a much tougher opponent. As we mentioned earlier, Cirstea hasn’t faced a top 20 opponent for almost two year and on this match, Svitolina’s higher consistency might be too much for the Romanian to handle. With this in mind, we recommend you to take advantage of Svitolina’s tennis odds by placing a bet on the Ukrainian to win this contest.
