It is an all-Spanish affair in the third round of the French Open. It should be a great clay duel as well between two specialists.

In the head to head between the two compatriots Bautista Agut has only a slender lead.

It has been an easy ride for both so far in the 2020 French Open. Who will get the win?

Roberto Bautista Agut Preview – Can Bautista Agut extend lead over compatriot

It has been plain sailing for Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut at Roland Garros for this campaign.

There has not been a set dropped by him so far in the campaign.

The closest that he came to doing so was in the opening set of his first-round match, which he took on a tie break.

It is not too often that you will see him going deep in a big tournament.

At this year’s US Open he lost in the third round against Vasek Pospisil and then followed that up with a quarter-final loss at the Hamburg Open.

This is the eighth appearance for Bautista Agut in the main draw of the French Open and he has never been past the fourth round before.

It has been back to back third-round exits in the last two campaigns for him.

He is the 8/11 favourite to win through this match on Saturday* (odds taken 04:56 GMT, Friday 2nd October)

Our betting prediction:
Carreno Busta 3-1 Set Betting

(odds taken 04:56 GMT, Friday 2nd October)


The biggest Grand Slam run of his career happened at Wimbledon last year when he powered his way through to the semi finals.

In the set betting market for tennis betting on this one, a 3-0 option in favourite of Bautista Agut is at 3/1* (odds taken 04:56 GMT, Friday 2nd October).

It is a narrow 4-3 lead in the overall head to head that he has against Pablo Carreno Busta.

But it was the latter who got the victory in the one meeting that they have already had this year.


Pablo Carreno Busta Preview – Carreno Busta with recent head to head form

Interestingly Pablo Carreno Busta has won two of the last three meetings with Roberto Bautista Agut.

They met earlier this year in Rotherham and it was a 2-1 victory that Carreno Busto took in that one.

It has been two previous clay-court meetings that they had, the first being on the Challenger tour back in 2011.

But in 2017 they met at the ATP Masters 1000 Rome event on the dirt and Carreno Busta came off second best in that one, again over three sets.

Each of the last four matches played between the two Spaniards have needed more than the minimum amount of sets, so that’s interesting to note for tennis betting.

It may be worth going for a bit of bigger value of 13/8 for a 4 option in the Total Sets market, while pushing it to 5 returns 9/4* (odds taken 04:56 GMT, Friday 2nd October).

There has been no dropped set for Pablo Carreno Busta either at the French Open so far.

He too has cruised through his opening two matches without having broken much of a sweat.

Pablo Carreno Busta had a tremendous run at the recent US Open it should be noted, reaching the semi finals.

He was stopped in the final four by Alexander Zverev after having won the opening two sets. So this is a player in a very good, confident mood at the moment.

He never got a chance to get going at the Italian Open on clay following that, as he was dumped out by Rafa Nadal in the first round there.

The underdog does warrant a look here at 11/10 odds in French Open tennis odds* (odds taken 04:56 GMT, Friday 2nd October)
