<div><h2>Katerina Siniakova vs. Maria Sakkari (29)</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/french-open-paris-france/sakkari-vs-siniakova-3809109/" target="_blank" title="Check Siniakova - Sakkari Betting Odds"><strong>Thursday, May 30, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Maria Sakkari has enjoyed a strong start to the European clay-court season, winning her maiden career WTA title in Rabat and reaching the semi-finals at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome. The 23-year-old arrived in Paris full of confidence and produced a near-perfect display to open her French Open campaign with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Anna Tatishvili in just 55 minutes. Tatishvili couldn’t find a solution to Maria’s aggression and accuracy with just 2 winners against 26 from her opponent.</p><p>Sakkari will next face Katerina Siniakova in the second round of the French Open. The world No.42 is a great competitor that fights for every point but most of the times that is not enough when facing the best players in the world. Siniakova only won 35.11% matches throughout her career against Top 50 players. Looking now at Katerina’s campaign in this year’s edition of Roland Garros, the 23-year-old reaches this stage of the competition after a 7-6(5), 6-1 victory against Elena Rybakina in the first round.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the third time in their careers. Siniakova won their first encounter at Wimbledon in 2017 while Sakkari got her revenge one year later at the Australian Open.</p><p>Sakkari is playing the best tennis of her life and it’s hard to go against her at the moment. The bookmakers are well aware of Maria’s success in recent months with the Greek as the favourite to win this match <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair & Start Playing Today!">at 53/100 (1.53) with Betfair</a>. Siniakova will try to extend the rallies but Sakkari should be too strong for the Czech to handle. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Maria’s moneyline to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions & Free Tips">betting tips</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Martin Klizan vs. Lucas Pouille (22)</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/french-open-paris-france/pouille-vs-klizan-3809087/" target="_blank" title="Check Klizan - Pouille Betting Odds"><strong>Thursday, May 30, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Former world No.10 Lucas Pouille has struggled for form since reaching the Australian Open semi-finals in January but playing on the big stage brings out the best in his game. The 25-year-old won 69.44% of the matches played at Grand Slam events since Wimbledon in 2016 and has proven to be an outstanding investment throughout his career in majors with an ROI of 32.4%. Adding to this, Pouille got his French Open campaign off to a good start with a straight-sets win over Simone Bolelli in just under two hours.</p><p>Pouille will next take on Martin Klizan for a place in the third round of Roland Garros. Klizan rallied from two sets down to beat Mikhail Kukushkin 3-6, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 and reach the second round in Paris for the seventh time in his career. The 29-year-old is one of the most talented players on the ATP Tour but also extremely inconsistent and that’s one of the main reasons for his lack of success in majors. Klizan is playing his 26th Grand Slam main draw but only made it past the second round in three of his previous 25 appearances.</p><p>This will be the second official meeting between these two players. Pouille leads 1-0 in their head-to-head after a 6-4, 6-3 win over Klizan in the quarter-finals of the 2016 Hungarian Open.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, Pouille is the favourite at 11/25 (1.44) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> while <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a> offers 203/100 (3.03) for Klizan to win this match. The Frenchman is always a great investment at Grand Slam events and will have the crowd support on his side. On the other hand, Klizan always struggled in best-of-five-set matches. With this in mind, adding Pouille’s moneyline to an accumulator is a very interesting strategy. On the other hand, betting on Pouille’s -1.5 Set Handicap <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&f=1" target="_blank" title="Get in game with Unibet!">at 4/5 (1.80) with Unibet</a> is also a good approach for this contest.</p></div>
