The Men’s and Women’s Roland Garros Semifinals take Place on FridayPublished June 7, 2019 by Florin P
Federer and Nadal play the most exciting match of the day at Roland Garros, with Djokovic meeting Thiem in the other semifinal of the day.
Rain delays have caused a lot of trouble for Roland Garros organizers, as the men’s and women’s semi-finals were slightly delayed. There were plenty of surprises in the ladies’ tournament, while the best players in the ATP have made it to the second to last act of the competition. All the matches will take place on Friday afternoon, so by the end of the day, we should have the names of the finalists.
Johanna Konta Plays a Coin Flip against Vondrousova
Johanna Konta has played superb tennis during the entire Roland Garros and she’s just one step away from the final. If she is to advance from the semi finals, she has to defeat Marketa Vondrousova in the match scheduled at noon. 888 Sport regards her as narrow favorite to prevail and offers odds of 7/10 while pricing a victory for Marketa at 11/10. The British tennis player has gradually elevated her game in Paris and she also has more experience than her Czech opponent. The two players have met twice and each one has prevailed on one occasion, with Konta winning the most recent game on clay in 2019.
Ashley Barty is Now the Main Favorite at Roland Garros
The young Australian player has won the quarterfinal against Madison Keys without breaking a sweat. She is now trying to replicate that victory against Amanda Anisimova who has just eliminated the reigning champion. The 17-year-old defeated Simona Halep in straight sets and she is poised to cause another upset on French clay. The odds on Anisimova to reach the finals currently stand at 3/2, while bet365 Sports offers odds of 1/2 on Ashley Barty. Both are young players, but the Australian has far more experience at this level, so she’s justly credited with the first chance.
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal Play a Timeless Classic
The most anticipated match of the day is the one between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. These are two of the best players of all time in a match in the semifinals is always a treat for the fans. The Spanish player is the overwhelming favorite to prevail, with odds of only 1/10 at Winner Sports. Both players have lost a single set at Roland Garros, but Nadal is without a doubt the best tennis player in history on clay. Those willing to take a chance with Roger Federer can expect odds of 6/1 on the Swiss to prevail.
Gear Up for the Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem Match
Dominic Thiem has played the last two finals at Roland Garros and he hopes for another chance to defeat Rafael Nadal. In order to make it this far, he has to outplay Novak Djokovic, the most in-form player and the current world number one. Both have played difficult matches in the quarterfinals and this game has the potential of going to five sets. Intertops Sportsbook offers odds of 3/5 on Djokovic to win and 13/10 on Dominic Thiem to make it to the final again.
