French Open Day 9 best bets: Sinner gets another shot at Nadal

French Open Day 9 best bets: Sinner gets another shot at Nadal

Fourth-round action at the 2021 French Open tennis tournament wraps up on Monday. Only eight players will still be alive in both the men’s and women’s singles fields following Monday’s proceedings, but there remain plenty of betting opportunities on offer. Among those who will resume their campaigns are Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Women’s title favorite Iga Swiatek is also taking to the court.

Throughout the two weeks in Paris, Pickswise will be offering plenty of content to help you make winning tennis picks.

Let’s continue by taking a look at some of the best bets for Monday at Roland Garros, and be sure to also check out our best futures bets for the fortnight.

Rafael Nadal vs. Jannik Sinner to have at least one tiebreaker (+200)

Nadal will probably face his toughest test of the fortnight to date when he goes up against Sinner. Although the Italian is just 19 years old, he has already had the pleasure of facing Nadal twice, and both times on clay. Those did not result in wins for the youngster, but they were surely valuable experiences in which he commended himself extremely well. Sinner lost 7-6(4), 6-4, 6-1 in the Roland Garros quarter-finals last year before falling 7-5, 6-4 a few weeks ago in Rome. The world No. 19 wields more firepower than Nadal’s first three foes, even more than Alexei Popyrin, and there can be competitive at least some of the way. Sinner’s one-two, serve-big groundstroke combination can give the King of Clay some problems and lead to at least one tiebreaker.

Diego Schwartzman vs. Jan-Lennard Struff over 36 games (-120)

This should be a good, and also a fun one with a contrast in style between the counter-punching Schwartzman and the huge-hitting Struff. Schwartzman is a considerable favorite, but he had been slumping prior to this tournament and has benefited from a favorable draw. None of his wins has been particularly impressive despite convincing scorelines. Struff, on the other hand, stunned Andrey Rublev in the first round and is coming off a stellar straight-sets win over Carlos Alcaraz. The Argentinian should be too solid in a long clay-court match in the end, but Struff can power his way to at least one set and maybe more.

Sloane Stephens +3.5 games over Babora Krejcikova (-109)

I’m leaning towards Krejcikova to win the match, but I’ve been fading Stephens all tournament long and it has consistently backfired. Even if the American does lose, I like the +3.5 games in what should be a tight three-setter. Stephens is one of those players who blows wildly hot and cold. When she’s playing well, she can win slam titles (former US Open winner and also one-time French Open runner-up). When she’s off her game, she can go long stretches without winning a single match. Stephens is in form now, having reached the semis in Parma late last month and now winning six sets in a row since dropping her first set of the fortnight to Carla Suarez Navarro.
