French Open 2014 Day 2

After a tough start to the day with Rosol looking as though he will fall to Vesely, we look to the later matches to see if any value appears.

Whilst I admit there is more of an emphasis on value this year (as evidence by a number of selections across the last few months), there are going to be peaks and troughs. It is all about the long term results.

Facundo Bagnis vs Julien Benneteau

Facundo Bagnis is your classic definition of a claycourter. Of the 63 matches Bagnis has played across the last 12 months, 59 of them have taken place on clay. He put together some very solid tennis through the qualifying rounds, knocking off Baena, Huta Galung and Da Silva, dropping his serve only twice through 7 sets.

Julien Benneteau on the other hand is coming off a Challenger tournament win, followed by a 3 set loss to Carlos Berlocq, after dropping the first set 6-1.

Casting an eye over past form here at Roland Garros of Benneteau, who isn’t renowned for being quick out of the blocks, I like Bagnis to cope with the tricky conditions and settle into his gameplan quicker today. As a result I am happy to take the over 4.5 total games first set for Bagnis, at $1.77 at Sportsbet.

Suggested Bet: Bagnis over 4.5 games first set at $1.77 at Sportsbet for 1.5 UNITS
