Plenty of upsets in day 2 including Wawrinka and Nishikori crashing out! Lets have a look at a couple of picks for Day 3 at Roland Garros
D Vekic 8/15 Bet365 to defeat J Glushko – Donna has been around for a few years now, but is still so young. She won her 1st WTA title earlier in the year in Kuala Lumpur and will start to look to gain more consistency for the rest of the year. Glushko is a solid enough player but I do not see her making inroads on the WTA tour much and has done well to break into the top 100 in the last 6 months. The 24 year old Israeli will have to deal with Vekic’s raw talent and the 17 year old Croatian has lots of it!
M Torro-Flor 5/6 Bet365 to defeat K Koukalova – Very tight match here in Roland Garros. Young Spanish star Torro-Flor won her WTA title in Morocco last month and is a big talent now transitioning from ITF to WTA in the last 12 months. She has power and loves clay. However the experience of Klara will be crucial in this match up and never discount the 32 year old. H2H it is 1-1 with the Czech player winning in 3 sets in Fed Cup this year on clay. I still think Maria Teresa will be more motivated for this match and could well take it, though low stakes
Look out for some solid performances from Brands (3/1 Bet365), Cepelova (2/1 Bet365), Cadantu (7/2), Garcia (3/1 Bet365) and Olivetti (6/1 Bet365) all at huge prices. May not win, but can cause problems for their opponents at the French Open
