ATP Men’s Tennis Matchups – Open 13 Provence – Round of 32

Jeremy Chardy vs Matteo Berrettini 

Chardy might offer fair odds considering how well he played in his last match. Although he lost to Danill Medvedev in Round 1 at the ABM Amro World Tennis Tournament, he pushed the sixteenth ranked player in the world to a tiebreaker in the first set.

Berrettini made it all the way to the semifinals in the Sofia Open in his last tournament played, though. He beat 1 Karen Khachanov and 6 Fernando Verdasco on his way to the matchup with Fuscovics. The 22-year-old pushed Fuscovics to 3 sets after winning the first set 7-5. He can beat Chardy on Tuesday.

Tennis Betting Pick: Matteo Berrettini

Ernests Gulbis vs Ugo Humbert 

Latvian player Ernests Gulbis easily handled Marius Copil 6-2, 6-4 in Round 1 at the ABN Amro before running into 1-seed Kei Nishikori in Round 2. Kei dominated Gulbis 6-1, 6-4.

Ugo Humbert didn’t get past Round 1 at the Open Sud de France in his last tournament played. He was a major dog against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, but he actually played well, winning the first set 6-3, and pushing Tsonga to a second set tiebreaker. Humbert’s the pick after watching how well he played against Tsonga.

Tennis Betting Pick: Ugo Humbert

WTA Women’s Tennis Matchups – Dubai Duty Free Championships – Round of 32

Naomi Osaka vs Kristina Mladenovic

For the first time since winning a second straight major championship, Naomi Osaka hits the court in the Dubai Duty Free. She’s the #1 ranked tennis player in the world and should dominate Mladenovic. However, Kristina easily handled Fatma Nalhabi 6-1, 6-1 in her first Dubai Duty Free match. Can she carry that over to her battle with Osaka on Tuesday?

Maybe. It’s impossible to back Osaka on the odds and during her Australian Open Championship run there were moments where she didn’t look great.

Tennis Betting Pick: Kristina Mladenovic

Aliaksandra Sasnovich vs Su-Wei Hsieh 

Last Tuesday, Sasnovich was the slight favorite to beat Su-Wei Hsieh in the Qatar Total Open. Hsieh put an impressive 6-2, 6-0 beat down on her, though. Aliaksandra struggled against Ekaterina Makarova, but she might step it up against Hsieh in the rematch.

Then again, while Sasnovich struggled, Su-Wei blasted through Anastasija Sevastova 6-4, 6-2. Hsieh, the thirty-first ranked player in the world, should take down Aliaksandra again.

Tennis Betting Pick: Su-Wei Hsieh
