Berdych and Tsonga picked to progress in French Open accumulator

| 02.06.2012

A lack of major shocks in the men’s draw of the French Open have resulted in some mouth-watering tussles in the fourth round and we are hoping that Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga can lead our next accumulator.

We have picked four outcomes in total, with Svetlana Kuznetsova and Petra Martic the other players making up the quartet.

All of the top nine seeds from the men’s draw have made the fourth round, with John Isner the only absentee from the top ten and it goes without saying that the competition is about to get harder.

Berdych undoubtedly is involved in the monster clash of the round with Juan Martin del Potro and despite being the higher seed, he is the marginal outsider in the French Open odds.

The pair cannot be split in terms of head-to-head meetings, but Berdych did encouragingly triumph in straight sets on the clay of Madrid this season in a big semi final and this result makes him the better bet at the prices.

Another close one to call is between Tsonga and Stanislas Wawrinka, with the latter taking a tight five-set victory in the French Open last year.

However, Tsonga can get revenge with the home support behind him, especially as Wawrinka has been involved in two five setters already in the opening three rounds.

In the women’s draw, Kuznetsova produced a sparkling display to see off Agnieszka Radwanska to continue a fine record against her and she faces another of her favoured opponents next.

Kuznetsova has triumphed in all five career meetings with Sara Errani and can add a sixth.

The upset of the round can come from Martic, who is bidding for a third successive victory over Angelique Kerber.

French Open selections

Svetlana Kuznetsova to beat Sara Errani @ 4/6
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to beat Stanislas Wawrinka @ 10/11
