Tiebreaks may not be needed in Kyle Edmund’s Fognini rumble

Resurgent Gavrilova could prove a threat to Mertens

Kyle Edmund on his way to defeating Marton Fucsovics 6-0 1-6 6-2 6-3 in round two
1 of 1

Third round
ITV4 & Eurosport 1 & 2 from 10am Saturday

Fognini v Edmund
Bookmakers cannot split Fabio Fognini and Kyle Edmund in their French Open third-round rumble and picking the winner is difficult.

Fognini is capable of going close at Roland Garros but the same remark applies to British number one Edmund, whose talent first came to prominence on clay.

Edmund has a definite chance to progress to the last 16. But let's not forget how Fognini, who has been the better backed of the pair, has taken apart Andy Murray, a superior player to Edmund, on more than one occasion on the slow red courts in the Davis Cup.

Rather than try to find a victor, it may be wiser to have an interest on one of the many other betting avenues.

The clash could be close, and it's extra difficult for punters in that both players are no strangers to posting straight-sets triumphs.

Exciting rallies are on the cards, but sets could also be decided early so anyone desperate for a punt could chance the match featuring no tiebreaks.

Recommendation
No tiebreak in match
1pt 6-5 Sky Bet


Gavrilova v Mertens
Elise Mertens goes from strength to strength and the 22-year-old Belgian has already captured titles this year in Hobart, Lugano and Rabat.

She's admirable and looks sure to serve her country well in individual and team competition in her career and punters have already moved for her in her clash with Daria Gavrilova.

But while Mertens may still defeat the Russian, it should be noted that Gavrilova is finally producing better after a long period in the doldrums.

Dasha, born in Moscow but now representing Australia, showed excellent fight to claw back Bernarda Pera in round two and a result like that could afford the 24-year-old a sizeable boost in confidence.

Gavrilova is not the most powerful of performers, but she possesses bags of natural ability and the clay often gives her more opportunity to strut her stuff than the faster courts.

The outsider can be considered for upset potential, but the chance to back her to win at least a set at a decent price can be taken.

Recommendation
D Gavrilova to win at least a set
2pts 17-20 Betway


Muguruza v Stosur
Garbine Muguruza has done little wrong in her opening two matches of her bid to regain the singles title, but in many ways her tournament starts in the last 32.

However, those who claim the Spaniard has won over the French crowd in the wake of her victory over Valbonne-based wild-card Fiona Ferro may have gone too early.

Sam Stosur, Muguruza’s next opponent, looks in determined mood and while the favourite should still find a way to frank the form of her 2016 6-2 6-4 victory over the Aussie at Roland Garros, this task could prove far from easy.

Stosur, who came up short against Francesca Schiavone in the 2010 French Open final, is fancied by Tony Roche to go close to winning the title this year.

She is 8-13 with a start of 5.5 games and that looks the bet in a tricky-looking outing for Muguruza.

Recommendation
S Stosur + 5.5 games
1pt 8-13 Coral
