Tennis Tips & Predictions: French Open - Women's Tournament June 1

News Content


Round 3 of the French is set for the women’s draw, and we have so many able players looking to make a charge at the title this season.

Although Iga Swiatek will have her overlooking menacing grin over the draw, players who are making it through to the next round one by one will be hoping their chances are still good.

This tournament, especially on the women’s side over the past decade, has truly been unpredictable.

We might have the most dominant clay player in women’s history now, but there is still room for the impossible to happen.

These conditions have been tricky in the past and won’t be much different this year, round three will be a huge tester of those who have already been able to win two matches.

Making one more push to get into the second week of a Grand Slam is where most people are cut-off.

So let’s get into some of these matches for R3 on the WTA Side on!

Match Betting Previews

Clara Tauson versus Elina Avanesyan

Clara Tauson is on the road back to the top twenty after missing much of the season due to injury, and seriously underperforming on multiple fronts over the past six months.

The youngster Dane is on the talent level of the highest order in the women’s tennis game but needs to find her game fast.

She is currently doing so, after two great victories in the first two rounds of the French. Tauson is undoubtedly one of the more talented players on the tour and when she’s on, can cause so much trouble for the rest of the field.

Big serving and immense forehand power are her main traits on the court, and she will look to continue her solid run at the Roland Garros 2023.

Elina Avanesyan is another youngster playing in the third round of a slam, a point that is truly remarkable for her given her recent results on the main WTA Tour.

Avanesyan is at home on the clay, and she plays with a ton of margin for error when her game gets going.

She may not have the biggest of weapons, but she is able to move her opponents around and finish points off with huge groundstrokes when need be.

Her serve is going to be something to watch for here, and if it becomes a second serve contest, she might be out in a hurry.

Betting Prediction - Tauson 2-0 and the under on total games.

Elise Mertens versus Jessica Pegula

Elise Mertens is looking for good back on the clay surface, and she will need to overcome another tough hurdle in Jessica Pegula this time around.

The Belgian has been a huge question mark when it comes down to winning matches this year, but she has picked up some decent form just at the right time.

Leading the h2h over Pegula with two wins to none, Mertens truly looks to have an opportunity to make the second week of the RG.

There is no telling which version of Elise will show up, but if she is able to land her strokes, it should be a competitive match to say the least.

Jessica Pegula will look to capitalize on a great draw by winning her third match in a row at the French, this time against someone she has never beaten before.

Pegula will need to impose her will on the game in order to win this one, because Mertens can provide some counter-attacking difficulties that have already haunted her in the past.
