The Best Tennis Players Compete in Week 2 at Roland GarrosPublished May 30, 2022 by Florin P
The quarterfinals of the French Open of Roland Garros pit the best way and tennis players against each other in highly-anticipated matches.
All the important football leagues are in recess, but this is the best time of the year for tennis fans. The French Open of Roland Garros is in full swing and the most anticipated matches are scheduled for this week. Nadal and Djokovic play a timeless classic, while players from the new generation aspire for a place in the semifinals. Action is every bit as intense in the women’s tournament, where American players have exceeded expectations and are on the verge of reaching the final acts of the competition.
Nadal and Djokovic meet in a French Open Classic
Rafael Nadal is the most successful player on clay and the best player to have ever competed in the French Open. His incredible record matters less on Tuesday when he faces a Djokovic in stellar form while nursing an injury. Under these circumstances, it comes as no surprise that the Spanish champion is credited with a second chance and odds of 19/10 by bet365 sports. It is the world number one that is expected to emerge victoriously, as reflected by the odds of 1/2 offered by the same bookmaker.
Alcaraz and Zverev Play the NextGen Derby at Roland Garros
Alcaraz is widely regarded as Rafael Nadal’s successor on clay and one of the main favorites to lift the trophy this year. He will need to defeat Zverev, an inconsistent player who is not known for dominating this surface. However, the German is in good shape and has won the last two matches without dropping a set. Even though he’s expected to post a serious challenge to the young Spanish player, he is credited with the second chance and odds of 1/4 as opposed to 33/10 on Alcaraz at bet365 sports.
Trevisan and Fernandez Hope to Prove their Quality on Clay
Fernandez took the world of tennis by surprise with her performance at the U.S. Open last year. The young player has another opportunity to stun the world with a deep run and Roland Garros, but she needs to defeat Trevisan first. The Italian is the underdog with odds of 19/10 while her opponent has the first chance as indicated by the odds of 1/2 at 1xBet. It’s important to highlight the fact that Trevisan hasn’t dropped a set in the last nine matches and kept her composure against superior opponents.
Gauff and Stephens Play an All-American Match in Paris
Gauff and Stephens are better suited for tennis matches played on hard courts, but the Americans exceeded expectations. They outplayed opponents so far and low course after impressively winning the previous rounds. Stephens is the more experienced player and a former finalist at the French Open, but she’s credited with the second chance and odds of 19/10. Gauff was given the favorite status and the odds of 1/2 of 1xBet, but she is yet to prove her quality and composure in the late stages of Grand Slam events.
