|Men’s Singles Matches||Player 1 Odds||Player 2 Odds|
|Kei Nishikori vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga||1.28||3.75|
|Stan Wawrinka vs. Roger Federer||2.75||1.44|
|Andy Murray vs. David Ferrer||1.44||2.75|
|Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal||1.36||3.25|
Nishikori vs. Tsonga – Tsonga is the lowest ranked player in the quarter finals at the French Open, currently sitting at 15th in the world, but he’ll have the hopes of an entire nation behind him as he takes on the fifth ranked player in the world, Kei Nishikori. There will be a lot of fan support for Tsonga as he is the last French player left in the mix, but he’ll have to contend with both his world ranking deficit as well as his record against Tsonga. The two have played five matches against each other over the last four years and Nishikori has won four of them. The only bit of good news in there is that the one match Tsonga did manage to win over Nishikori came in France back in 2013.
Wawrinka vs. Federer – Wawrinka appears to be in a spot of trouble in this match up. Roger Federer is no longer the number one player in the world, but he’s done well enough against Stan Wawrinka in the past to warrant a pretty heavy wager. The two have met 18 times in their careers and Federer was won 16 of their matches. Adding to that, Federer took on Wawrinka just a few weeks ago in the semi finals of the Rome Masters and beat the underdog in straight sets. The only glimmer of hope on Wawrinka’s resume at the moment is that both times he’s beaten Federer, he’s done so on a clay court.
Andy Murray vs. Davis Ferrer – Murray is the favourite to win this match, but by his own admission, he’ll need to pick up the pace if he still plans on being alive for the semi finals. Murray was successful in the fourth round, but had to fight hard to take down Jeremy Chardy. Ferrer will carry with him a fairly solid record of 6-9 against Murray and a couple other stats that will aid his cause. First off, four out of Ferrer’s six wins against Murray have come on clay and Ferrer has already once had the pleasure of sending Andy Murray home from the French Open. He beat him back in 2012 at the French Open when they played their quarter final match against each other.
Djokovic vs. Nadal – The odds for this mega match up have Djokovic as an enormous favourite, but calling the winner here is still going to be tough. These two have played a lot of tennis against each other and their heads up stats are nearly identical. They’ve met 43 times with Nadal winning 23 matches and Djokovic winning 20. Leaning in favour of Djokovic is their recent head to head record. Djokovic has won six out of their last seven matches and two of those matches were on clay. As for Nadal’s edge, well, it’s really the tournament itself. He may be in the midst of a downward trend in his game, but he’s also a nine time winner at the French Open as well as the defending champion.
|Women’s Singles Matches||Player 1 Odds||Player 2 Odds|
|Timea Bacsinszky vs. Alison Van Uytvanck||1.20||4.50|
|Ana Ivanovic vs. Elina Svitolina||1.44||2.75|
|Garbine Muguruza vs. Luci Safarova||1.80||2.00|
|Serena Williams vs. Sara Errani||1.12||6.00|
Bacsinszky vs. Uytvanck – This definitely counts as one of the most unexpected match ups of the 2015 French Open. Alison Van Uytvanck is currently holding onto the 97th spot on the world rankings and Timea Bacsinszky is holding onto 24th. The edge goes to Bacsinszky here for a few reasons. First and foremost, she has been at times in her career one of the best players on the planet. And while she hasn’t been in top form for a while, she has been holding her own lately. She made it to the round of 16 at the Rome Masters and the quarter finals at Marrakech. A bet on Uytvanck wouldn’t be a terrible choice, though. She has been doing her fair share of upsetting and she’s paying out at a very nice price of 4.50.
Ivanovic vs. Svitolina – Ivanovic is both the favourite to win this match as well as a former winner at the French Open. She’ll take with her into this match up, not only the knowledge that has made it past this point in the tournament before, but also the knowledge that she’s never lost a match to her opponent, Svitolina. The two have played against each other on six separate occasions and Ivanovic has won all six. They most recently met at the Madrid Masters where Ivanovic won in straight sets on a clay court.
Muguruza vs. Safarova – This is by far the most evenly matched quarter final duo at the French Open this year. Safarova earned her spot here by taking down the second ranked player and defending champion Maria Sharapova, while Muguruza took down Flavia Pennetta in straight sets to gain a birth in the quarter finals. Muguruza is going to be the favourite despite the fact that she is at a disadvantage according to the world rankings. Her win of Sharapova, though, gives her both credibility as well as momentum.
Serena Williams vs. Sara Errani– Serena Williams is the obvious favourite here, but there are some reasons to doubt 19 time Grand Slam champion. Williams was forced to make a daring escape in her fourth round match after losing the first set to Sloane Stephens who trails her by 39 spots in the world rankings. She’s also going up against Sara Errani who’s preforming incredibly well as of late and seems to have a love affair with the French Open. Errani easily won her last two matches in this French Open and she’s had a slew of solid finishes at the event. She was a finalist at the 2012 French Open and she followed that up with a semi-final finish the year after that and a quarter final finish last year. She’s certainly still an outside pick, but Serena has shown recently that she can be beat and Errani has the skills and momentum to do the job.
