Zverev vs Griekspoor Predictions and Betting Tips - French Open 2024

Day seven of the French Open marks the final day of the third round.

As more players are eliminated, those still in the tournament battle fiercely to secure their places in the subsequent rounds. Two of those are top seed Novak Djokovic and 30th seed Lorenzo Musetti, who clash in the third round of the 2024 French Open this Saturday.

Djokovic arrives at this match after straight-set victories over Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Roberto Carballes Baena in the first two rounds. However, these victories didn’t come easily.

Djokovic has had a difficult 2024 season with no titles to his name yet. His latest defeat was in the Geneva Open, where he was ousted by Tomas Machac in a 4-6, 6-0, 1-6 loss.

Meanwhile, Musetti overcame Daniel Galan and home favourite Gael Monfils, winning both matches in straight sets.

Musetti has also faced a tough season, entering the French Open following a series of first-round exits in Barcelona, Rome, and Madrid. His best recent performance on clay came at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, where he was defeated by Djokovic in the Round of 16.

In his match against Herbert, Djokovic faced significant pressure in the second set. However, the Serb managed to secure an early 3-0 lead in the tiebreaker, gaining the upper hand. He eventually triumphed with a 6-4, 7-6(3), 6-4 victory.
