[7] Petra Kvitova vs Laura Siegemund

Former World No. 2 Petra Kvitova looks to book her ticket to the semifinals of the French Open for the second time in her career, and the first time since 2012. But the seventh seed will have to get through Laura Siegemund first. With her fourth round win, Siegemund’s earned herself a spot in her first singles Grand Slam quarterfinals.

Kvitova has really been able to showcase her powerful offense this tournament. Clay isn’t her favorite surface, but she has had success on it over the years and is continuing it at the French Open this year. Kvitova beat her fourth round opponent, Zhung Shaui, 6-2, 6-4.

Despite the straight-sets win in the fourth round, winning 7-5, 6-2 against her opponent Paula Badosa, Siegemund has not been playing her best tennis. The German has been struggling with her serve, having multiple matches with five or more double faults.

The two players have only seen each other once before, but it came in at the US Open in 2015. Kvitova went on to win that match 6-1, 6-1.

Kvitova has not had the toughest road to the quarterfinals. But despite that, her tennis has been clean and tight, she has yet to drop a set at the tournament. This quarterfinal match is Kvitova’s to lose. She shouldn’t have a problem getting through Siegemund, as she seems to hold the upper hand in most parts of the game. As long as she minimizes any unnecessary errors, this should be a fairly straightforward win for Kvitova.

Best Bet: Kvitova (-385)

Danielle Rose Collins vs [4] Sofia Kenin

This quarterfinal match looks to be a closer call than the other. 21-year-old Kenin has reclaimed her status at the French Open this year. After winning the Australian Open in January, it looked to be a career year, but since the return of tennis, she has struggled. She’ll have to face Danielle Collins, who’s having a career-best run at the French Open.

Kenin has seemed to regain some confidence at the French Open. The young American has shown signs of her old dominant self as she’s made her way through four matches. Her most recent match against France’s Fiona Ferro was her toughest match to date, but she managed to come back to win 2-6, 6-2, 6-1.

The 26-year old American Collins will be making her second Grand Slam quarterfinal of her career. She won her first professional match since lockdown in France and has been able to build momentum off it. Most recently she beat Ons Jabeur 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, to earn her spot in the quarterfinals.

This is the fourth meeting between the two Americans, and Collins actually leads the head-to-head record, 3-0 over Kenin. The most recent meeting came earlier this year where Collins won 6-3, 6-1. Before that, the two saw each other twice in 2017. Not only has Kenin not won a match against Collins, but she also has yet to take a set off her. Kenin is the best bet here, but expect Collins to take a set from her. This will most likely go three sets.

Best Bet: Kenin (-182)
