Bet Of The Day May 30 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Sinner is 2-0 vs Rublev in completed matches
  • Sinner is 2-0 vs Rublev on clay
  • Sinner is 10-0 at Roland Garros vs players other than Nadal
  • Sinner is 27-6 for the season
  • Rublev has dropped a set in every match so far this tournament

We’re off to the French Open for today’s best bet as Andrey Rublev and Jannik Sinner square off for a place in the quarter-finals.

It’s an evenly poised contest, but Sinner is the slight underdog with the bookies and we think the Italian can edge this.

Sinner has won his two previous completed matches against Rublev, and significantly, both came on clay at Barcelona 2021 and Monte Carlo earlier this season.

The match in Barcelona saw Sinner prevail 6-2 7-6 and the World No. 12 doubled down by finishing strongly at the conclusion of their Monte Carlo showdown, recovering from a set down to win 5-7 6-1 6-3.

Rublev is an awesome player with one of the biggest forehands in tennis, but he’s not playing at the peak of his powers at the moment – as illustrated through dropping a set in all of his matches in Paris so far against Soonwoo Kwon, Federico Delbonis and Cristian Garin.

Garin in particular troubled Rublev as he went ahead 3-0 in the fourth set and had five sets points to take it to a fifth before losing in the tiebreak.

Rublev’s second serve is extremely attackable and someone like Sinner can take advantage of this weakness in a way that clay courters such as Garin and Delbonis couldn’t.

Sinner has dropped just one set en route to the fourth round and knows what it takes to beat top 10 players at this stage of Roland Garros, defeating Alexander Zverev at this stage two years ago.

In fact, it’s taken Rafael Nadal to knock Sinner out of Roland Garros in his only two appearances. The 20-year-old is on a 10-match winning streak at the tournament against players other than Nadal.

The only slight concern with Sinner is that he appears to be carrying some sort of niggling left knee problem, but the tape could easily just be precautionary. It certainly didn’t affect him too much in his straight sets dispatch of Mackenzie McDonald in the third round.

All things considered, Sinner holds the advantage in the H2H, current form and Roland Garros pedigree and is the underdog in this match-up. We’re more than happy to back him home for another quarter-final in Paris.
