From the four Grand Slam tournaments on the tennis calendar, Roland Garros is definitely the one where the crowd support is more important to the local players. Alize Cornet is no exception with the world no.43 winning 66.67% of the matches in Paris since 2013. Adding to this, Cornet is also famous for playing her best tennis on the big stages with an outstanding 56 – 45 career record on Grand Slam events. Despite her lack of success in recent weeks, Cornet should start her campaign in Roland Garros with a high quality performance.

While some players perform at their best on the major tournaments, Timea Babos’ career record on Grand Slam events is far from impressive. Besides winning only 28.00% of the matches throughout her career on Grand Slams, Babos arrives in Paris with a terrible 1 – 5 record on red dirt in 2017. Known for her powerful groundstrokes, Timea’s game style is far from effective on clay with the Hungarian 4 – 9 career record on WTA Premier and Grand Slam events on this surface.

As it usually happens when Cornet steps on court in Roland Garros, the crowd support should be decisive to the home favorite’s victory. Adding to this, Alize shouldn’t experience any major problems against Babos’ powerful game style since she’s one of the best defenders in the game. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Cornet’s moneyline to your tennis betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.

Ashleigh Barty vs. Madison Keys (12)

Ashleigh Barty continues her impressive run in 2017. Besides winning her first title on the WTA Tour in Kuala Lumpur, Barty is currently in her career-high ranking as the world no.76. Adding to this, Ashleigh arrives in Paris after an outstanding campaign in Strasbourg, losing only on the third set tie break against Daria Gavrilova in the quarterfinals. Known as one of the most talented young players on the WTA Tour, it’s just a matter of time before Barty is fighting for the most important tournaments.

After a disappointing start to 2017, Madison Keys is trying to return to her best level in Roland Garros. Despite her undeniable quality, Keys is not going through a good moment after winning only 37.50% of the matches this year. In addition to her poor record in 2017, Madison couldn’t compete during the first two months of the season due to a wrist injury that required surgery. After losing all her previous three matches on clay-court season, Keys is still looking for her first victory on red dirt in 2017.

This should be a very interesting contest between two players well-known for their firepower. Despite Madison’s higher experience at this level, Barty is the player in better form at the moment. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Ashleigh’s betting odds by placing a bet on the Australian to secure a place at the French Open 2nd round for the second time in her career.
