At the age of 25, Cepede Royg is going through the best moment in her career. Regardless of Saturday’s outcome, Cepede Royg already has secured her career-high ranking next week. Playing on clay brings the best out of Veronica with the Paraguayan winning 66.49% of the matches played on red dirt in her career. Taking a look now at Cepede Royg’s campaign in Roland Garros, the world No. 97 reaches this stage of the competition after two outstanding victories against Lucie Safarova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Duque-Marino continues her remarkable run in Roland Garros. After defeating Magdalena Rybarikova in the previous round, Duque-Marino secured a place in the 3rd round of a Grand Slam event for the second time in her career. Despite her successful journey in Paris, Mariana has been far from impressive on serve. Besides winning only 53.80% of her service games in Roland Garros, Duque-Marino is firing an average of 0.65 double faults per service game. This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two, with Cepede Royg winning the first.

This is by far the biggest match of these two players’ careers with an unprecedented spot in the 4th round of a Grand Slam event at stake. Due to Cepede Royg’s phenomenal campaign, it’s impossible to go against the Paraguayan on this match. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Cepede Royg to emerge victorious.

Alize Cornet Vs. Agnieszka Radwanska (9)

Cornet is one of the three French players left in the women’s competition along with Kristina Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia. As we mentioned in previous analysis, playing in Roland Garros brings the best out of Cornet. After defeating Barbora Strycova in the previous round, the 27-year-old improved her record in Paris since 2013 to 10-4. Taking a look now at Alize’s numbers in Paris, the highlight goes to her return to serve with Cornet winning 59.10% of her opponents’ service games.

After a slow start to 2017, Radwanska is trying to return to her best level. Known as one of the trickiest players on the WTA Tour, Radwanska is never an easy opponent. Even though clay is far from Agnieszka’s favorite surface, the Pole presents a solid 69.70% winning record in Roland Garros throughout her career. Looking now at Radwanska’s campaign on this year’s edition, the former world No. 2 reaches this stage of the competition after a 6-7, 6-2, 6-3 victory against Alison Van Uytvanck.

These two players know each other very well with Radwanska winning 7 of their previous 8 meetings.

When looking at the odds available for this match, the sportsbooks offer a very attractive price for Radwanska’s victory. Despite Agnieszka’s lack of success in recent months, she is a terrible matchup for Cornet. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Radwanska’s spread to your betting picks as the best value play for this match.
