Jannik Sinner vs. Mackenzie McDonald 

5 a.m. ET

One of the last remaining Americans across both draws is Mackenzie McDonald, but he’s facing a massive test in Jannik Sinner.

Jon Reid breaks down where the value lies in the lopsided matchup.

Andrey Rublev vs. Cristian Garin

5 a.m. ET

One of the fascinating stylistic matchups of the day comes between Andrey Rublev and clay-court specialist Cristian Garin.

Luke Holmberg believes the Chilean is undervalued on his surface of choice, and he discusses why.

Iga Swiatek vs. Danka Kovinic

6 a.m. ET

Another Iga Swiatek match, another chance to get behind the mercurial talent.

David Gertler discusses why it’s not time to stop trusting the world No. 1.

Daniil Medvedev vs. Miomir Kecmanovic

6:15 a.m. ET

The world No. 2 doesn’t love playing on clay, but he’s done a good job of improvising at the French Open thus far.

Holmberg thinks it’s time for Daniil Medvedev to struggle, however, as he goes up against Miomir Kecmanovic.

Daria Kasatkina vs. Shelby Rogers

6:30 a.m. ET

Shelby Rogers has made an impressive run to the third round at Roland Garros, but Daria Kastakina has had a stellar clay season.

Gertler looks at the matchup and details his best bet.

Jessica Pegula vs. Tamara Zidansek

7 a.m. ET

Another American who is looking to make a mark on this Grand Slam event is Jessica Pegula, but once again Gertler says you should be cautious betting her.

Read on to see why Gertler sees value on the underdog Tamara Zidansek.

Qinwen Zheng vs. Alize Cornet

7:30 a.m. ET

Another underdog to consider is Alize Cornet, who has been thriving in her home country’s biggest event.

Reid details why Cornet is in a good spot against Qinwen Zheng.

Hubert Hurkacz vs. David Goffin

8:15 a.m. ET

It’s been the best year of Hubert Hurkacz’s clay-court career, but he’s dealing with an in-form David Goffin in the third round.

Reid looks at the rematch of a matchup that we saw in Rome just a couple weeks ago.

Marin Cilic vs. Gilles Simon

9 a.m. ET

The fairytale run for Gilles Simon has been fun, but it’s time for it to come to an end, says Reid.

See why Marin Cilic is a nightmare matchup for the veteran Frenchman.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Mikael Ymer

10 a.m. ET

Stefanos Tsitsipas hasn’t handled his first two matches as well as most thought he would, and now the Greek faces Mikael Ymer.

Fortunately, this is a match that he’s had a lot of success in, and Kenny Ducey is looking at the total because of it.

Elena Rybakina vs. Madison Keys

10:30 a.m. ET

A court where you should expect to see some major ball-striking is Court Simonne-Mathieu, where Elena Rybakina takes on Madison Keys.
