Well, we get an interesting third round match at the French Open here as world number 31 Katerina Siniakova takes on top-ten seed Kiki Bertens.

Bertens was struggling badly with cramps at the end of a long 3-hour slog against Sara Errani in the last round.

What kind of shape is the Dutch player going to be in for this third round test on Friday? This is a match to watch for sure.

Katerina Siniakova Preview – A chance for the Czech player?

Let’s start this tennis betting preview with a look at the form of Katerina Siniakova on the US swing of the season.

It wasn’t great as she lost in the first round of the Western & Southern Open as well as in her first match at the US Open.

So nothing there to write home about but there has been a lot more positive output from her since the European clay swing.

She beat former Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber in the opening round of the recent Italiani Open, before falling to Daria Kastakina in her next match.

Then on a follow-up event at the Strasbourg Grand Prix, Siniakova ran to the quarter-finals, notably beating 7th seed Ekaterina Alexandrova along the way.

The Czech player gave a good account of herself as well in that quarter final match, losing in three sets to Aryna Sabalenka.

Our betting prediction:
Siniakova -5.5 Games Handicap

(odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October)


So, with a big gap between Siniakova and Bertens in the world rankings, normally Siniakova would be a fair underdog for this third round match.

But instead, Siniakova is the 8/15 odds-on favourite for the contest, because of injury issues with Bertens in the previous round* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).

So this could be a golden chance for the Czech player to make progress.

At least year’s French Open she reached the round of sixteen, her best effort at the Slam.


Kiki Bertens Preview – Will Bertens be match fit?

There will be a question mark over Bertens and her chance to make it through to the fourth round.

She came through a 3-hour ill-tempered match against Sara Errani in the last round and the Dutch player had to leave the court at the end of the match on a wheelchair.

That was because of terrible cramps that she was suffering, although her opponent thought that she was exaggerating it all.

Bertens prevailed 7-6 7-6 (5) 3-6 9-7 in such a tough fixture, but that is over and it will be interesting to see how well she recovers.

As it currently stands, Bertens is the 6/4 underdog for this one after those full body cramps* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).

This will be the second meeting between the two players, with the current head to head standings sitting even with one win each.

Kiki Bertens won the most recent clash between the two which was in Madrid last year and that was a straight sets victory.

The first match happened in Beijing the year before, ending in a straight sets win for Siniakova.

The track record of Bertens at the French Open (and in Slams overall) is nothing special. The best ever Slam run that she has was when she reached the French Open semi’s in 2016.


Katerina Siniakova vs Kiki Bertens Betting Advice

We would have to go with Siniakova for the match win in this one, just because of what happened to Bertens in the last round.

Either way that was a tough three-hour duel that she had and she never looked comfortable throughout, so she spent a lot of energy there.

So maybe it is just a situation where a Siniakova 2-0 set betting option is worth a look at 6/5 odds* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).

  • Katerina Siniakova has yet to drop a set in the tournament

It is just one of those strange situations where punters don’t know the full situation for tennis betting regarding Bertens.

That’s unpredictable, so we simply have to settle with the lower-ranked player getting through.
