To be honest, we’re not complaining, as there still dozens of matches to choose from as players look to secure important Grand Slam wins.

Here is how our analysts are evaluating the Tuesday slate of matches at Roland Garros.

Matches are listed in chronological order. Match times are subject to change and many will be played after their projected start time. Read here for advice on watching the French Open.

Denis Shapovalov vs. Holger Rune

5 a.m. ET

One of the matches of the day comes between Denis Shapovalov and Holger Rune.

Kenny Ducey understands the price on this match, but feels the favored Shapovalov is being disrespected.

Oscar Otte vs. Roberto Carballes Baena

5 a.m. ET

The French Open is the place for clay-court specialists to earn their biggest wins of the season, and that’s what Jon Reid is backing Roberto Carballes Baena to do.

Read on to see why he believes the Spaniard has value on Tuesday.

Claire Liu vs. Tamara Zidansek 

5 a.m. ET

Tamara Zidansek was a French Open semifinalist one year ago, but she’s an underdog in the first round this year.

David Gertler believes that’s disrespectful, and he discusses why Zidsansek is a value play.

Emil Ruusuvuori vs. Ugo Humbert

5 a.m. ET

Two players that don’t love clay courts will go at it in this match, and Reid believes there’s a way for you to take advantage of that.

Read on to see how he’s betting the intriguing matchup.

Chun-hsin Tseng vs. Joao Sousa

5 a.m. ET

Veteran Joao Sousa will meet youngster Chun-hsin Tseng in this first round match.

Luke Holmberg sees value on the up-and-comer who has been successful on the Challenger Tour this year.

Aleksandra Krunic vs. Kamilla Rakhimova 

6:30 a.m. ET

In this under-the-radar matchup, Gertler sees value on the favored Krunic against a player who is struggling for form.

Taylor Townsend vs. Caroline Garcia

7:45 a.m. ET

Taylor Townsend hasn’t played on tour in two years, while Caroline Garcia hasn’t played on clay this season.

Avery Zimmerman breaks down the unique matchup.

Lucas Pouille vs. Zdenek Kolar

10 a.m. ET

Lucas Pouille is favored in his home slam, but Reid sees the other side as the underpriced one.

Read on for his analysis of the match.

Jiri Vesely vs. Steve Johnson

10:30 a.m. ET

Will Steve Johnson be able to deliver after a month off of the court? Don’t buy into it, says Holmberg.

He offers a rationale for the man that beat Novak Djokovic earlier this season.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Lorenzo Musetti

2:45 p.m. ET

Last year’s French Open finalist gets his tournament underway with a tricky matchup against Lorenzo Musetti.

Ducey feels that this match could go longer than many anticipate.

Frances Tiafoe vs. Benjamin Bonzi

2:45 p.m. ET

Another late match and another spot where Ducey feels that we could be dealing with a lengthy battle.

He sees value on the total of this entertaining meeting.
