THINGS are hotting up as we get to the business end of the French Open and there are some tasty tussles on the Sunday schedule.
Pick of the bunch is 17-times Grand Slam Roger Federer against home hero Gael Monfils in round four. Monfils trails 8-4 in the head-to-head but will take confidence from the fact he’s won the last two meetings, both of which were on clay.
To make it three in a row the Frenchman is 5-2 at Boylesports while Fed is 2-5 at bwin. Monfils has been taken to five sets in the last two rounds and 888sport go 10-17 for today’s clash to be over 3.5 sets.
Two other players hoping to make home advantage count are Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon. Tsonga is 12-5 underdog at Sportingbet against Tomas Berdych (2-5, William Hill) and countryman Simon is 12-5 at BetVictor versus Stan Wawinka, the 1-3 favourite at Skybet.
Serena Williams survived a scare before edging out Victoria Azarenka on Saturday and today’s women’s action features defending champ Maria Sharapova hoping for smooth progress against Lucie Safarova.
England head into day three of the the second cricket Test against New Zealand on 353-5, 97 runs behind, and favourites to seal victory at evens with bet365 while the Black Caps are 31-10 at Boylesports and the draw 9-4 at Titanbet.
