<div><h2>Dominic Thiem (4) vs. Gael Monfils (14)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Thiem - Monfils Betting Odds"><strong>Monday, June 3, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Dominic Thiem continued his quest for a maiden Grand Slam title on Saturday with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 win over Pablo Cuevas in two hours and 36 minutes. The world No.4 proved too solid from the baseline to Cuevas with just 24 unforced errors to 48 from his opponent. Thiem loves Roland Garros and always plays his best tennis on this event. Known as one of the best clay-court players on the ATP Tour, Thiem won 19 of his last 22 matches on this event. Adding to this, the 25-year-old Austrian reached his first major final last year in Paris.</p><p>Thiem will next take on home favourite Gael Monfils for a place in the quarter-finals of Roland Garros. The 32-year-old struggled for form in the start of the clay-court season but rediscovered his best tennis in Paris. Monfils is a former semi-finalist in Roland Garros and reached the fourth round or better in seven of his last 10 appearances on this event. Looking now at Gael’s campaign at this year’s tournament, the No.14 seed reached this stage of the competition after a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 victory against Antoine Hoang in exactly two hours.</p><p>This will be the fifth official meeting between these two players with Gael still looking for his first win against this opponent.</p><p>Despite Dominic’s lead in their head-to-head, Monfils is a completely different player in Roland Garros and thrives on the home crowd support. The Frenchman has always been a great investment at the French Open and won at least one set in 91.49% of the matches played on this event since 2006. On the other hand, Thiem lost one set in all his previous three matches on this event and the same should happen here. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over 3.5 sets <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in game with Unibet!">at 29/50 (1.58) with Unibet </a>to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> as the best value bet for this contest.</p><p> </p><h2>Sofia Kenin vs. Ashleigh Barty (8)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Kenin - Barty Betting Odds"><strong>Monday, June 3, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Former junior world No.2 Sofia Kenin ended Serena Williams’ bid to win a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title on Saturday with a 6-2, 7-5 victory against the three-time French Open champion. Serena struggled to find her range from the baseline, ending the match with 34 unforced errors, twice as many as Sofia’s 17. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a fairy-tale run in Paris and is guaranteed to enter the Top 30 for the first time in her career after this tournament.</p><p>Kenin will next face Ashleigh Barty, who advanced to the fourth round of Roland Garros for the first time in her career after a 6-3, 6-1 win over Andrea Petkovic in just 60 minutes. Barty saved the only break point she faced in the match and won 79.31% of her first-serve points in a near-flawless display. The 23-year-old Australian improved to 27-5 this season and has yet to drop a set in the tournament.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers with Barty leading 2-0 in their head-to-head.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, Barty is the main favourite at 1/4 (1.25) with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> while <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill Today!">William Hill</a> offers 16/5 (4.20) for Kenin to win this match. Despite Sofia’s impressive performance in the previous round, it won’t be easy for the American to replicate the same level on this match. Adding to this, Barty is a very tricky player and her backhand slice is always a great weapon on any surface. For that reason, our advice is for you to bet on the Australian’s -1.5 Set Handicap <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 3/4 (1.75) with Pinnacle</a>.</p></div>
