French Open 2021 Predictions & Picks
It’s time to dive into some matchups for Day 5 of the French Open on Thursday. Wednesday, we went 2-2 on my 4 picks. Kalinina ended up getting squashed by Collins in her matchup, which was very surprising due to the fact that she had won 10 straight matchups and 14 straight sets. Let’s look to have a winning record with our 4 plays for Thursday.
French Open 2021 Men's Picks - June 3
Andres Seppi @ -110
Seppi comes into his second match of the tournament in good spirits after a demanding win of 3 sets to 1 against the extremely gifted Auger-Aliassime. He faces 91st ranked, Soonwoo Kwon. This one is close to a pick em, but I’m favoring Seppi between these two guys. Not only is Seppi coming off of an impressive win in the first round, but he has also won 7 of his last 9 professional matches.
Jan-Lennard Struff @ -165
Struff is a favorite here against Facundo Bagnis for good reason. He beat one of the best in the sport in his first round in Andrey Rublev. Rublev is ranked 4th and had a chance at winning this tournament. The fact that Struff came into this tournament as an underdog right away and came out with the win, shows what this man is made of, and how little fear he has. Struff also outranks his opponent Bagnis, by 62 spots (42 vs. 104).
French Open 2021 Women's Picks - June 3
Ekaterina Alexandrova @ +135
I’m liking Alexandrova here in her second match of the tournament against Barbora Krejcikova. Alexandrova is coming off of a great win in round 1 against Venus Williams, beating her in straight sets 2-0. She has also gotten the better of Krejcikova in her career, beating her in 3 out of 4 matchups. Taking Alexandrova as an underdog in round 2 is the right thing to do here.
Jennifer Brady @ -170
Jennifer Brady is matched up against the French player Fiona Ferro. Brady is ranked higher than Ferro by 37 spots (14 vs 51). I think Brady should be more of a favorite than the odds are suggesting here, due to the fact that she’s one of the best and coming offf of a strong straight set win against Anastasija Sevastova.
