ANDY MURRAY continues his tilt at French Open glory today and home hopeful Jeremy Chardy stands between the Scot and a quarter-final spot.
Murray leads the head-to-head 6-1 and eased past Chardy in two sets at the Rome Open a couple of weeks ago. The British No.1 has dropped just one set so far at Roland Garros and is 9-10 at Stan James for another 3-0 win while over 3.5 sets pays 5-4 at bet365.
First match of the day is the resumption of Gael Monfils’ showdown with Roger Federer which is locked at one set apiece.
Current US Open champ Marin Cilic is showing signs of getting back to his best and he’s 12-5 at BetVictor against Spain’s David Ferrer, the 2-5 favourite at Paddy Power. The other two matches see Novak Djokovic take on France’s Richard Gasquet and Jack Sock try for a shock against Rafa Nadal.
Rain put paid to defending women’s champ Maria Sharapova versus Lucie Safarova and that now takes place today along with the likes of Sara Errani’s tussle with Julia Goerges and the all-American showdown between title favourite Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens.
New Zealand look good for victory in the second cricket Test against England after opening up a commanding lead of 338 runs on day three. The action resumes this morning with the hosts out to 10-3 at Paddy Power and the Black Caps just 6-10 at Boylesports to grab a series-levelling victory.
Down Under it’s the NRL tussle between Sydney and Melbourne kicking off at 10am UK time and there’s also Major League Baseball across the pond.
