Tennis best bets for the French Open - Wednesday, June 7th

The French Open is the second major of the tennis season, and it's the only one that is played on clay. This year's tournament feels a bit different without 14-time champion Rafael Nadal, but the action has been tremendous from both the men and the women. There's nothing quite like clay-court tennis, and we'll be here with daily best bets for all the action at Roland Garros. With that said, keep reading for our picks for Wednesday, June 7th. Make sure you also check out the Pro Picks page throughout the course of the tournament, as I'll have some plays there that you won't find here.

Tomas Martin Etcheverry vs. Alexander Zverev (Scheduled: 9:00 a.m. ET)

Not many people are familiar with Etcheverry’s game, but the Argentine hasn’t lost a single set in Paris. And while he hasn’t exactly gone through a gauntlet, Etcheverry did earn wins over Alex de Minaur and Borna Coric. The 23-year-old is now 19-13 on the year, while also having 15 clay-court wins since the start of April. He has been one of the true breakout players of the 2023 season, and I think he has the ability to give Zverev a run for his money on Wednesday.

Zverev is coming off an impressive straight-set win over Grigor Dimitrov, but that was a match in which the Bulgarian really beat himself. Zverev didn’t have to do a whole lot to get by there, and he was also shaky in a four-set win over Frances Tiafoe the round before. Of course, getting to this point in the tournament shows that Zverev’s game is in a good place, and he has always been a guy that shows up to play in Paris. However, I wonder if he has the mental game to just completely beat up on Etcheverry.

Zverev’s serve can haunt him at times, as he has had some issues with double faults throughout his career. And if he isn’t easily winning his service games, Etcheverry will be a threat to win this match. The Argentine has a really big forehand, which has been his bread and butter all throughout the clay season. He’s also serving very well right now, as his hold percentage is up at 81.2% since the start of 2023. Etcheverry’s serve has come a long way since last year, when he held just 69.2% of the time at the ATP level.

This is just a match that could easily be decided by a fifth set, as Etcheverry isn’t going to go down easily with the way he has been playing all year. It also wouldn’t be surprising if the crowd really gets behind the Argentine, as the fans know he’ll need a little boost in order for this to turn into a competitive match. That should bring the best out of Etcheverry, who ups his game when the fans are in his conrer. And it could also rattle Zverev, who is prone to on-court collapses when he gets in his own head.

With all of that in mind, I think the safest thing to do here is play the over on the game total. These two should push each other and put on a fun show, and you'll want to just sit back and relax as they battle it out. 

Bet: Over 36.5 (-120)
