The third round action continues with a second batch of matches on Saturday, as we need to head into the rest day with everything completed. Here are our top tennis selections for the weekend!

Men's Draw

Gilles Simon might have dropped a set against Blaz Kavcic, but one still has to have him as the favorite against Gael Monfils. Not only does Simon have a 6-1 record against his compatriot, but we all know that Monfils dislikes the surface and that he's prone to losing his cool on it, which is a big problem when it comes to this particular match-up, as Simon is one of the most consistent players around. At 1.91 with BetVictor, we'll take Simon to get his seventh victory over Monfils.

Andy Murray should also be way too strong for Andreas Seppi, who found it hard to beat Borna Coric in the previous round. Considering that the Croat needed multiple medical time-outs just to get through that match, that isn't a result that would prime him for the challenge Murray will pose. The 7.5 games handicap is priced at 1.72 with Paddy Power and looks like a good bet to us.

Those of you who are looking for an underdog to back should definitely turn to Ivo Karlovic, who's priced at 2.60 with BetVictor to upset Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Frenchman doesn't have a great record against players that serve big and Karlovic is bound to give him even more problems than Gilles Muller did in the first round, so the veteran from Croatia, who even managed to beat Tomas Berdych in Halle a few weeks ago, might be able to surprise us all yet again.

Women's Draw

Many punters will surely like Sabine Lisicki's chances of getting through to the next round, but we're having none of that, preferring to back the underdog instead. After all, Timea Bacsinszky has a lot of class as well and you could also say that she has a playing style that Lisicki is bound to struggle against so, considering that the German also had plenty of issues against Christina McHale, we think that the world's number fifteen is worth a bet at 2.20 with Betway.

To round things off, we'll also back Kvitova to cover the 5 games handicap against Jelena Jankovic, a bet that is priced at 1.85 with Betway. The Czech number one has looked imperious against both Bertens and Nara, while Jankovic struggled to put Evgeniya Rodina away, so chances are that Kvitova will be able to cruise through yet another match on Saturday.
