Roland Garros Stadium
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Corentin Moutet and Juan Londero meet in the third round of the 2019 tennis French Open.
Corentin Moutet is coming off a four sets win over Guido Pella that took 36 games to decide. In the victory, Moutet won 55 percent of his first serve points and 59 percent of his second serve points. Moutet won 58 percent of his total service points and converted on nine of his 16 break points. Moutet easily provided one of the upsets of the tournament by beating a top-25 player and did so while dropping a combined four games in the first two sets. Moutet is a 20-year-old with very little main tour experience and this being just his third ever grand slam appearance. However, Moutet is here now and you can bet the French crowd will continue to get behind him. Moutet looks to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time in his career. Moutet has won seven of his last nine matches on clay court.
Juan Londero is coming off a four sets win over Richard Gasquet that took 36 games to decide. In the victory, Londero won 79 percent of his first serve points and 67 percent of his second serve points. Londero won 74 percent of his total service points and converted on five of his 12 break points. Londero got 60 percent of his first serves in play and saved four of his six break points. Londero has now beaten back-to-back players who are ranked much higher than him, and he has a chance to win three straight matches for the first time since winning the Cordoba Open back in February. Londero hopes to make the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time in his career. Of course, this is Londero’s first ever grand slam appearance after failing to qualify multiple times. Londero has won three of his last four matches on clay court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
Talk about two players who have come out of nowhere on the big stage and have a chance at a breakthrough moment. Moutet will have the advantage of the crowd behind him, but he also lacks the experience that makes you question just how long he can keep this up. Londero doesn’t have grand slam experience, but he does know what it’s like to play in big matches and is fresh off beating two respectable players. Londero also just beat a Frenchman in the second round, so the crowd should get to him much.
I like Londero to make the fourth round.
