ATP Rome: Alejandro Tabilo vs Zhizhen Zhang

Chile's Alejandro Tabilo is threatening a breakout performance at the Rome Masters and is one match away from his first semi-final at this level.

Likewise, this is a huge match for China's Zhizhen Zhang who owns the victory from the previous clash between these players.

However, this contest will be played on a surface that suits Tabilo and he has shown that he can match the biggest stars on clay.

Zhang has the tools to be a very good clay court player but he lacks experience.


ATP Rome: Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz

Alexander Zverev and Taylor Fritz are set to clash for the eighth time with the German leading the head-to-head.

Zverev has won four of their seven clashes to date although Fritz won the last match they contested at the United Cup.

Fritz is bidding to reach back-to-back clay court semi-finals in what would be a warning shot for the French Open.

Zverev looks set to disrupt that bid having looked in top form in Rome.


WTA Rome: Jelena Ostapenko vs Aryna Sabalenka

Jelena Ostapenko has lost both her matches against Aryna Sabalenka and will need to find something special to overcome the world number two.

Both players fought back from a set down to win their Round of 16 matches and have also spent more than six hours on court in Rome thus far.

Sabalenka has a great record this season but Ostapenko is not far behind and has one more match win to her name albeit with three extra losses.

These players should produce a great match given their recent form and it is tighter than the head-to-head suggests.


WTA Rome: Victoria Azarenka vs Danielle Rose Collins

Victoria Azarenka and Danielle Collins are locked at 1-1 in their head-to-head but will be split by this match.

They haven't faced off since February 2019 so past meetings probably won't factor too much into the equation.

Azarenka has had to work very hard to reach this stage with over seven hours spent on court in Rome.

Collins meanwhile is yet to drop a set and has only played a hair under three and a half hours of tennis.


Challenger Bordeaux: Stanislas Wawrinka vs Bernabe Zapata Miralles

Stanislas Wawrinka is among the players looking for some time on clay ahead of the French Open and faces Spaniard Bernabe Zapata Miralles in Bordeaux.

Wawrinka leads the head-to-head 1-0 although that single clash came on an indoor hard court at Metz last November.

Wawrinka has been disappointing on clay this season winning just two of eight matches.

Miralles hasn't covered himself in glory either but he has been busier than Wawrinka as you might expect.


Challenger Bordeaux: Pierre-Hugues Herbert vs Taro Daniel

Japan's Taro Daniel will have his hands full when he takes on French journeyman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

The players have never faced each other at any level in singles competition.

Herbert has a slightly better record on clay this season winning half of his matches.

Daniel has two wins out of seven matches on tour since the start of the clay swing.


Challenger Bordeaux: Albert Ramos Vinolas vs Gregoire Barrere

Gregoire Barrere has struggled for main draw wins recently, although he does have a few qualifying victories to his name.

Albert Ramos Vinolas has also had poor form which has seen him enter this Challenger event.

Barrere has a slightly better record when it comes to his win-loss ratio on clay this term.

This will be the first meeting between these players in any form of singles competition.


Challenger Bordeaux: Kyrian Jacquet vs Andy Murray

Andy Murray returns to the court for a French Open tune-up that starts with a meeting against an up-and-coming home player.

Murray and Jacquet have not crossed paths before but the Brit holds a big rankings edge over the 23-year-old.

Jacquet started his clay swing in Bordeaux Challenger qualifying.

Murray meanwhile will be playing his first match on the surface this season having opted to rest up in a bid to prioritise the grass swing that follows after the French Open.
