Sunday French Open Picks

Nadia Podoroska vs Jessika Ponchet

5 a.m. ET

Nadia Podoroska, a 2020 semifinalist, takes on Frenchwoman Jessika Ponchet in the opening match of the tournament.

Read on to see why Gertler believes the home favorite will be overmatched in the first round.

Magdalena Frech vs Shuai Zhang

5 a.m. ET

Shuai Zhang has reached a high level on the WTA Tour, but clay isn't the surface where she has thrived the most.

Gertler is fading the Chinese player who has been struggling on the dirt thus far in the spring.

Nuria Parrizas Diaz vs Storm Hunter

5 a.m. ET

Speaking of players that haven't historically thrived on clay, Storm Hunter takes on a far more clay-centric player in Nuria Parrizas Diaz.

Reid previews the match and discusses why he's happy to take the short moneyline in the match.

Sebastian Korda vs Mackenzie McDonald

7 a.m. ET

An all-American showdown will feature as Mackenzie McDonald and Sebastian Korda clash in an early-morning showdown.

Will the player with more pedigree thrive, or will McDonald pose difficulties for an under-cooked Korda? Ducey breaks it all down.

Kamilla Rakhimova vs Sara Bejlek

7 a.m ET

An under-the-radar match features on the women's side of the draw, but Reid doesn't believe this match has under-the-radar betting value, but rather clear cut value.

He previews the match that presents a big opportunity for each player.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Ben Shelton

8:15 a.m. ET

Another American standout, Ben Shelton, will get his French Open campaign underway as an underdog against Lorenzo Sonego.

Shelton reached the quarterfinals of his last Grand Slam tournament, but what will this match look like in far different conditions?

Corentin Moutet vs Arthur Cazaux

8:15 a.m. ET

There may be no better atmosphere on court than in this all-French battle between Corentin Moutet and Arthur Cazaux.

Where does the betting value lie in this pick 'em line? Read on to see what Ducey believes.

Lucas Pouille vs Jurij Rodionov

9:30 a.m. ET

We just saw a qualifier versus lucky loser matchup in the Madrid Masters, and now we have one at the French Open with a match that featured a third round qualifying defeat for Jurij Rodionov.

Holmberg is actually fading the man that won the original contest, and he breaks down his reasoning for that.

Jil Teichmann vs Sara Errani

10:30 a.m. ET

Sara Errani is still hanging around and competing on the biggest stages of tennis after all of these years. She'll face off with Jil Teichmann in Sunday's order of play.

See why Gertler is believing in the veteran to compete with the Swiss.

Jessica Pegula vs Danielle Collins

11 a.m. ET

On the women's side of the draw we have another all-American battle, as Jessica Pegula squares off with Danielle Collins in a unique showdown of styles.

Once again, Gertler has faith that the underdog will push the favorite.
