<div><h2>Fabio Fognini (9) vs. Roberto Bautista Agut (18)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Fognini - Bautista Agut Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, June 1, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Fabio Fognini has enjoyed tremendous success on this clay-court season, winning his maiden Masters 1000 title at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters. The 32-year-old became the first Italian to win the title at the Monte-Carlo Country Club and is on the brink of becoming the first player from his country to break into the Top 10 in more than four decades. Looking now at Fabio’s campaign on this event, the No.9 seed reaches this stage of the competition after a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory over Federico Delbonis in two hours and 24 minutes.</p><p>Fognini will next take on Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the fourth round of Roland Garros. Known as one of the best competitors in the game, Bautista Agut has yet to drop a set in Paris after two convincing wins against Steve Johnson and Taylor Fritz. The world No.21 made it to the fourth round in two of his last three appearances at the French Open but lost all his previous five matches in Paris when priced as underdog.</p><p>This will be the 11th official meeting between these two players. Fognini leads 7-3 in their head-to-head with the Italian also winning three of their previous four encounters on red dirt.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a close contest with Fognini as the slight favourite at 83/100 (1.83) with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair Today!">Betfair</a> while <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> offers 11/10 (2.10) for Bautista Agut to win this match. Despite Roberto’s impressive results in the previous round, it’s hard to go against Fabio on this surface. The Italian has played some of the best tennis of his life this year and is clearly the better player on this surface. With this in mind, the value is on Fabio’s <a href="" target="_blank" title="Live Tennis Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a> to win this match and reach the fourth round in Roland Garros.</p><p> </p><h2>Andrea Petkovic vs. Ashleigh Barty (8)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Petkovic - Barty Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, June 1, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Former world No.9 Andrea Petkovic battled back from a set down to defeat Taiwan’s Su-Wei Hsieh 4-6, 6-3, 8-6 in a match that lasted two hours and 24 minutes. The 31-year-old German is one of the greatest competitors on the WTA Tour and playing in Paris is always special for her. Roland Garros is Petkovic’s favourite Grand Slam tournament with the German winning 68.75% of the matches played throughout her career on this event. Adding to this, Andrea also made the semi-finals in 2014 and always has a strong support from the crowd.</p><p>Looking now at Petkovic’s draw on this event, the German will next face Ashleigh Barty on Saturday at the Court Suzanne-Lenglen. The Australian No.1 has been in great form recently and besides winning the Miami Open title, Barty also reached the Australian Open quarter-finals for the first time in her career. However, clay is Ashleigh’s worst surface with the 23-year-old yet to make it past the second round in Paris.</p><p>Barty is the undeniable favourite to win this match at 17/100 (1.17) with <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill Today!">William Hill</a> but it’s impossible to find any value on her current price. Petkovic is an outstanding competitor and although Barty is the more talented of the two, the German can give Barty a run for her money in Paris. For that reason, betting on Andrea’s +6 game handicap at 81/100 (1.81) or Over 19 at 9/10 (1.90), <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">both with Pinnacle</a>, are two interesting approaches for this contest.</p></div>
