The defeat suffered by Gasquet was the only bad tip offered yesterday out of the 3 that we suggested, this tournament in Paris being pretty profitable until now. Today, 30 October 2014, we are going to see neither more nor less than 7 matches in the round of 16. Today we can see a lot of interesting matches on which we could bet, but we decided to choose only 3 of them: Kevin Anderson – Stanislas Wawrinka, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Kei Nishikori and Lucas Pouille – Roger Federer. We are going to offer a tip for each of them.
Our tip suggestions
Kevin Anderson – Stanislas Wawrinka >>> Over 9.5 games in the first set
We are now at the 6 direct match between the South African Kevin Anderson (rank 18 ATP) and the Swizz Staislas Wawrinka (rank 4) will offer most probably one of the most balanced match of the day. Both players are favorites, so they didn’t play the opening tour, and in the second tour, Anderson surpassed Santiago Giraldo in a minimum of sets, as well as Wawrinka, which won against Dominic Theim. We expect to see a balanced first set, considering that Anderson is the type of player who relay on strong kicks and serve, but his movement is not his strong suit, while the Swizz has a more offensive game style, with lots of wining strikes and his serve is good too. We expect that the first break to come after a while, considering the direct matches between the two, when in all 5 were a minimum of 10 games in the first set.

Lucas Pouille – Roger Federer >>> Lucas Pouille +5.5 games
The young French Lucas Pouille (rank 176 ATP), player who came from the qualification rounds, will dispute tonight the match of his life considering that he will meet Federer, the second best world tennis player of all-times. Pouille managed a series of surprisingly victories, all in a minimum of sets, against more experienced players like: Steve Johnson, Jarkko Niemine, Ivo Karlovic or Fabio Fognini. On the other hand, Federer had a pretty difficult second tour, against another French, Jeremy Chardy, against who won after three balanced sets, score 7-6, 6-7, 6-4. In this match the Swizz didn’t give that much on the court, but he doesn’t play at its best either so we expect that he will perform at the same level this time too. Federer is the favorite for this match, and most probably he will manage to qualify in the next stage, but we bet on the French’s enthusiasm and we expect that he will cover the handicap. Not even that he managed to obtain some unexpected victories and he is in really good shape, but he will have the public on his side which will encourage him in every moment.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Kei Nishikori >>>>> Minim one set Tsonga
The best French player at the moment, the winner of this tournament in 2008 and also the finalist in 2011, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will have a pretty difficult mission in the round of 16, his opponent being the Japanese Kei Nishikori, undefeated player on hard indoor this year. Despite the fact that he is undefeated, we expect that Tsonga will manage to obtain a pretty good match, in which he will win at least one set, given the fact that he managed to do so in every one of the last 5 direct matches played against Nishikori, even though he lost 4 of them, on the other hand he won’t afford to lose without trying to win at leas one set in front of his co-nationals especially that he is the type of player who encourages himself trough his fans. Nishikori lost lately a set against Jarkko Nieminen, Benjamin Becker and Tommy Robredo, and we can’t see why Tsonga wouldn’t be able to do so, considering that he is a better player like the ones that we enumerate.
