Diego Schwartzman vs. Grigor Dimitrov

5 a.m. ET

The earliest match of the day pits two players that met just a few weeks ago together.

See how Luke Holmberg is betting the battle between Diego Schwartzman and Grigor Dimitrov.

Belinda Bencic vs. Leylah Fernandez 

6 a.m. ET

Two in-form players who don’t necessarily prefer clay will clash when Belinda Bencic takes on Leylah Fernandez.

Jon Reid believes that Fernandez is capable of providing a stern test for the Swiss, and he details why in the article above.

Elise Mertens vs. Varvara Gracheva

6:30 a.m. ET

While Elise Mertens hasn’t been at her best over the past few tournaments, David Gertler is happy to get behind her in this matchup.

Read on to see why he’s projecting a comfortable win for the Belgian.

Martina Trevisan vs. Daria Saville

6:30 a.m. ET

Martina Trevisan simply loves playing at the French Open, but the Italian is in for a tough battle against Daria Saville.

See where Gertler is projecting value on this battle of ball-strikers.

Coco Gauff vs. Kaia Kanepi

6:30 a.m. ET

American Coco Gauff has had a nice start to her Parisian adventure, but Estonian Kaia Kanepi presents a tough matchup.

Reid outlines why he’s backing Kanepi to score an upset victory in this match.

Novak Djokovic vs. Aljaz Bedene

7:15 a.m. ET

Novak Djokovic has glided through his first few matches at the French Open with ease, so will we see the same in round three?

Yes, says Holmberg, who will happily take the game total on the world No. 1.

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs. Filip Krajinovic

7:30 a.m. ET

Felix Auger-Aliassime routed his second round opponent to secure a straight set victory, but veteran Filip Krajinovic presents a different test.

Read on to see why Reid isn’t expecting a comfortable experience for the Canadian.

Rafael Nadal vs. Botic van de Zandschulp

8 a.m. ET

13-time French Open Rafael Nadal has cruised to easy victories in his first two matches, but Gertler sees Botic van de Zandschulp providing a sterner challenge.

See how he is looking to back the Dutchman in this battle.

Jil Teichmann vs. Victoria Azarenka

8:30 a.m. ET

One of the best value opportunities on the board has presented itself in this spot with Jil Teichmann, says Reid.

He explains why the Swiss is in a great position to advance into the second week of the tournament.

Cameron Norrie vs. Karen Khachanov

10 a.m. ET

These two players are quite familiar with each other, but how will this iteration of the matchup go?

Kenny Ducey is loving the value you can get on the underdog, and he explains why.

Alexander Zverev vs. Brandon Nakashima

10 a.m. ET

One of the surprise runs thus far at the event has come from Brandon Nakashima, who is still new to the European red clay of Roland Garros.

Reid doesn’t think that run will continue against a player like Alexander Zverev, however.

Carlos Alcaraz vs. Sebastian Korda

2:45 p.m. ET

Get your popcorn out for what could be one of the matches of the day.

Ducey breaks down the meeting of Carlos Alcaraz and the lone man to beat him on clay this year, Sebastian Korda.
