Danielle Collins vs Jessica Pegula , Sunday May 28, 10 am

An All-American popcorn clash between Danielle Collins and Jessica Pegula promises intrigue on Sunday.
Pegula has slugged her way through a tough clay swing but looked in decent touch in a run to the last eight in Madrid.
Collins lost the only match she played on clay this season but is a player who saves her best performances for Grand Slams.

Suggested bets

Pegula to claim the all-American clash

Pegula to start strong with opening set win

Collins to drop opening set 2-6

Set score prediction: Pegula to win in straight sets

Maria Sakkari vs Karolina Muchova, Sunday May 28, 10 am

Top ten star Maria Sakkari has been given a nightmare opener against Czech Karolina Muchova who is better than her 5-4 record at Roland Garros suggests.
Sakkari has a big point to prove as a player who might feel that she is dropping away from the elite group of players.
Muchova is a tough nut to crack though and her Davis Cup experience on clay should be a boost to her in this environment

Suggested bets

Muchova to secure progress in upset

Muchova to open strong with first set win

Muchova to take opener 7-5

Set score prediction: Muchova 3-1 Sakkari

Victoria Azarenka vs Bianca Andreescu, Sunday May 28, 10 am

Former Grand Slam winners Victoria Azarenka and Bianca Andreescu face off in opening-round action in the French Open on Sunday.
It will be the first time that former world No 1 Azarenka has faced the Canadian who has never been beyond the second round at Roland Garros.
Azarenka reached the semi-finals in Paris in 2013 but hasn't been beyond the fourth round in seven appearances since.

Suggested bets

Victoria Azarenka should get beyond Bianca Andreescu

Azarenka over Andreescue in opening set

Andreescu to lose opening set 2-6

Set score prediction: Azarenka 3-0 Andreescu

Karolina Pliskova vs Sloane Stephens, Sunday May 28, 10 am

Former world No 1 Karolina Pliskova has a first round date with 2017 US Open winner Sloane Stephens.
Stephens sports a 4-1 head-to-head lead over Wimbledon finalist Pliskova, but the Czech has enjoyed a better 2023 to date.

The American jets in from Rabat where she was a semi-finalist in the week ahead of Roland Garros.

Suggested bets

Karolina Pliskova could get one back over Sloane Stephens

Pliskova with an opening set win

Czech Pliskova 6-4 over Stephens on set 1

Set score prediction: Pliskova 3-2 Stephens
