ATP – 2024 French Open Qualifying 2nd Round

  • When: Wednesday, May 22nd, 2024

Diego Schwartzman vs. Quinten Halys

Underdog Quinten Halys handled his first round opponent, Alexis Galarneau. Halys beat Galarneau 7-5 and 6-3.

Schwartzman was more impressive in his first qualifying match. The favorite in this dusted Lukas Neumayer 6-2, 6-3. Schwartzman is 0-7 in non-qualifying singles matches this season, though, which is why backing Halys at the better than expected odds makes sense.

Tennis Betting Pick: Quinten Halys +126

Lloyd Harris vs. Mattia Bellucci

South African Lloyd Harris had to rally against Arthur Gea in his first qualifier. Harris went down 2-6 in the first set. The victory speaks to Harris’ determination.

Mattia Bellucci also had to rally. Bellucci is just 22 while Harris is 27. The +126 underdog has more professional experience, which should aid him in this match.

Tennis Betting Pick: Lloyd Harris +126

Andrea Pellegrino vs. Gregoire Barrere

Pellegrino had to play 3 sets and 2 tiebreakers to get by Maxime Cressy in his first match. The workload explains why the odds difference is so large in between the underdog and favored Gregoire Barrere.

The -227 chalk is 4-5 in singles matches this season. 4-5 isn’t a great mark, but at this level it should be good enough for Barrere to move on from the second round.

Tennis Betting Pick: Gregoire Barrere -227

WTA – 2024 French Open Qualifying 2nd Round

  • When: Wednesday, May 22nd, 2024

Alice Tubello vs. Sara Errani

23-year-old Alice Tubello has a terrific 34-7 singles match record in 2024. The record indicates she can hang with Sara Errani.

Ah, but the 34-7 mark has come in much lower level matches than what Sara Errani has played. Errani is 17-12 in big league tournaments. So Errani should be the chalk. But the odds on the fave make her an underlay. Take a swing on the dog.

Tennis Betting Pick: Alice Tubello +175

Alycia Parks vs. Sara Saito

Parks is just 2-14 in singles matches this season. On Wednesday, the underdog in this takes on a 17-year-old phenom in Sara Saito.

Saito lacks pro experience, but she easily handled Francisca Jorge 6-4, 6-1 in her first qualifying match. Saito keeps it going with a second straight win.

Tennis Betting Pick: Sara Saito -145

Sinja Krause vs.Hailey Baptiste

Baptiste should have no trouble getting by Sinja Krause. The favorite in this is 24-14 in singles matches this season.

Also, after losing the first set to Valentini Grammatikopoulou, Baptiste won the next two sets 6-4, 6-3. The young American has some talent. It will be on display in this Wednesday match at Roland-Garros.

Tennis Betting Pick: Hailey Baptiste -244
