The final eight players have been decided in both the Men’s and Women’s draws at the 2015 French Open, setting up some of the most exciting quarterfinals at Roland Garros in years.

We’re offering the best odds on the widest range of markets for all eight quarterfinal matches at the 2015 French Open!

The Men’s quarterfinals are undoubtedly highlighted by a match between top seed and World Number 1 Novak Djokovic and clay court master Rafael Nadal, who is seeking an incredible tenth French Open title in 2015.

An all-Swiss encounter between Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka has also been confirmed, while in-form fifth seed Kei Nishikori will lock horns with red-hot crowd favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Andy Murray is sure to have his hands full with David Ferrer in the final Men’s quarterfinal.

For the second time this season, Swiss counterparts Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka will cross paths on the professional tour. As should be expected, Federer leads 16-2 head-to-head in his matches with Wawrinka which includes this year’s meeting in Rome. Having both produced impressive efforts in the Round of 16, Federer and Wawrinka will be confident of taking another step towards the decider but we’re tipping the former in four sets.

Nishikori vs Tsonga

In what has every chance of figuring as the most well-contested quarterfinal in the Men’s draw, fifth seed Kei Nishikori has won through to play the animated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to decide who will appear in the French Open final four. Having knocked 40 winners past Teymuraz Gabashvili in the Round of 16, Nishikori will need to kick the intensity up a gear if to compete with Tsonga, the tournament’s last remaining Frenchman who is sure to have most of the crowd in his corner. Both players are very capable but we’re taking Tsonga in a five set thriller.

Murray vs Ferrer
Wednesday 3/6/2015 6:00pm AEST

Andy Murray claimed a four set win over hometown favourite Jeremy Chardy to book his place in the final eight, while consistent Spaniard David Ferrer appears to have returned to the right form for Grand Slam success. Murray holds a 9-6 lead over Ferrer overall but has interestingly never beaten the Spaniard on clay. The Scotsman is the obvious pick of these two to progress to the final four however we believe $2.75 for Ferrer to win is more than worth consideration.

Djokovic vs Nadal
Wednesday 3/6/2015 6:00pm AEST

In what perhaps should have figured as this year’s Men’s Singles final, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal lock horns on centre court on Wednesday evening. Djokovic is the undisputed best player in the world while there has never been a better player on clay than Nadal. Having comfortably progressed past exciting rising US star Jack Sock, we’re backing Nadal to progress past Djokovic in five sets, on what also figures as his 29th birthday.

The Women’s quarterfinals have drawn an interesting mix of seasoned professionals and exciting up-and-coming talents.

Ana Ivanovic appears to have returned to her best form and will face off with the Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina on Tuesday night, while Lucia Safarova and Garbine Muguruza figure as even money for success in their tie.

Serena Williams is sure to be pushed to the limit by Italian Sarah Errani while the little-known Timea Bacsinszky and Alison van Uytvanck face-off for a final four position.

Ivanovic vs Svitolina
Tuesday 2/6/2015 10:00pm AEST

The seventh meeting between Ivanovic and Svitolina will take place in the French Open quarterfinals and so far, the former has more than controlled their head-to-head in taking out each of their previous six fixtures. 2008 French Open champion, Ivanovic saw off Ekaterina Makarova in three sets in the Round of 16 while Svitolina, the youngest player remaining at the French Open, produced an impressive effort to progress past Alize Cornet in straight sets. We’re backing experience and Ivanovic in three sets.

Muguruza vs Safarova
Tuesday 2/6/2015 10:00pm AEST

In what may figure as the best match of the Women’s quarterfinals at the 2015 French Open, Lucie Safarova takes on Garbine Muguruza on Tuesday night Australian time. Muguruza has undoubtedly produced some of her best tennis to reach the final eight but will likely face too great a task in the red-hot Safarova; who has ousted some of the women’s game’s best this tournament, including defending champion Maria Sharapova in the Round of 16.

Williams vs Errani
Wednesday 3/6/2015 6:00pm AEST

Two-time French Open and nineteen-time Grand Slam Champion, Serena Williams continues to go from strength to strength but has survived two real scares on her way to the quarterfinals. Sara Errani entered the French Open as the tournament’s 17th seed but has looked moreso like a player capable of the top 5. Williams is by no means a sure thing but her power and consistency will probably see her through to the semis.

Bacsinszky vs van Uytvanck
Wednesday 3/6/2015 6:00pm AEST

Both Bacsinszky and van Uytvanck have posted monumental wins on their way to the French Open quarterfinals, but it is the former who has more than stamped her claims as a serious talented leading into the late stages of the Grand Slam, particularly having seen off two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova over the weekend. The 23rd seed is clear favourite to progress past the world number 100 van Uytvanck and should have no issue doing that.
