It has been rapid, untroubled progress by tournament favourite Simona Halep at the French Open 2020 so far.

It has been two easy matches for her in the competition and she looks to be the one to meet.

In the third round she will be meeting one of the rising stars of the game, America’s Amanda Animsov who has been highly impressive in the campaign so far.

Simona Halep Preview – Halep still has plenty of gears to go through

To be realistic, Simona Halep hasn’t had to really break a sweat in the French Open 2020 so far, breezing through her first two contests.

She opened with a 64 60 win over Sara Sorribes Tormo in the first round and it was another straight sets victory in the second round.

Halep got the better once again of her Romanian compatriot Irina Camelia Begu.

That is a sixteen match winning streak that the former French Open champion is now on and she is simply cruising at the moment, having been unchallenged.

It has simply been disciplined focus that has gotten her to this stage of the competition and she has plenty more in her game should she need it.

Halep is again a long odds-on favourite in the match outright, this time to the tune of 1/5 leaving nothing there for tennis betting options.

Our betting prediction:
Halep -5.5 Games Handicap

Bet at Betway

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


Strong favouritism will have to send us to the Games Handicap market for French Open tennis betting options.

There is a Halep -5.5 handicap option at even money for this fixture* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).

Halep needs to lift the title at the French Open, which will be for the second time in her career, to move back to the world number one spot at the expense of Ashley Barty, who isn’t playing in this Slam.


Amanda Anisimova Preview – Young American is in hot form

Emerging star Amanda Anisimova has been in superb form at Roland Garros though far, although of course, she has met no-one of Halep’s calibre.

Anisimova has taken apart the games of Tamara Korpatsch and Bernarda Pera in her matches so far. She had dropped just two games in each of them.

Those matches both followed the exact same scoreline as well for the American. Both were 62 60 results, so she has been on fire.

She was in a battling mood at the Italian Open recently where she lost in the second round over three sets to Dayana Yastremska.

In three of her five sets played at that clay tournament, Anisimova faced a tie-break situation.

She will then have been disappointed by a first round exit at the Strasbourg Grand Prix in her final preparations before the Slam.

Animasivo is a big 7/2 underdog to claim the match win and cause the biggest upset of the event so far* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October)..

Amanda Anisimova actually won the one previous meeting between the two players.

Where did that happen? In the quarter finals of last year’s French Open, the American took the shock win in straight sets as well.

So there’s a hint of danger there for Halep going into this round match.

Punters expecting a repeat outcome would be looking at a 7/1 quote in tennis betting on an Amanda Anisimova 2-0 option* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).

Great things are expected of the 19 year old down the line. Especially after reaching the final four of last year’s action at Roland Garros.

The youngster was a third round loser at the recent US Open and is growing in stature all the time.


Simona Halep vs Amanda Anisimova Betting Advice

Last year’s French Open quarter final success for Anisimova over Halep was the shock of the tournament. Now the two meet again.

We would have to swing with a revenge win for Halep though. That’s because she is red-hot on clay at the moment.

After her title in Prague we would expect Halep to get through this match.

As she has looked relaxed and focused, a 2-0 set betting option for her is at 4/7 odds* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).


Key Facts – Simona Halep vs Amanda Anisimova Betting Tip

  • Simona Halep lost to Amanda Anisimova in last year’s French Open quarter final
  • Simona Halep is on a 15 match winning streak at the moment
  • Amanda Anisimova has dropped only four games in two matches so far at the tournament


Anisimova had that brilliant run at the French Open last year and has started this campaign in tremendous fashing, dropping just four games in two matches.

But landing a follow up success over Halep is not going to be easy. So we can’t support another upset from the American.

We would size up the Halep -5.5 Games Handicap as a tennis betting action for the match as well for even money* (odds taken 02:13 GMT Thursday, 1st October).
