Francesca Schiavone v Caroline Wozniacki Live French Open Quarter Finals

Roland Garros French Open Women's Quarter Finals Tennis Betting between Francesca Schiavone vs Caroline Wozniacki on today Tuesday, 1-6-2010, 11:00 CET in the Roland Garros Day 10,Paris, France.

The Roland Garros French Open Women's Quarter Finals matche on Day Ten see seventeenth seed Francesca Schiavone take on third seed Caroline Wozniacki. Who will book their Semi Final places?

William Hill have made Caroline Wozniacki, the world number three, the favourite to progress to the Semi Final stage of the tournament at odds of 4/7 ahead of world number seventeen Schiavone at odds of 5/4 despite Schiavone having won their only previous encounter. Will Wozniacki level the scorecard and progress to the final four stage?
Wozniacki has played well so far at Roland Garros and she dispatched her first three opponents barely breaking a sweat. First up was Alla Kudryavtseva, who was sent packing 6-0, 6-3, followed by Tathiana Garbin, who was beaten 6-3, 6-1, and finally thirty-first seed Alexandra Dulgheru, who lost 6-3, 6-4. However, the Danish 19 year old came up against fourteenth seed Flavia Pennetta in round four and she proved to be more of a challenge and caused Wozniacki to drop her first set. The third seed booked her place in the Quarter Finals with a hard fought 7-6, 6-7, 6-2 victory. This year is already her best performance in the French Open, having never progressed further than round three before, now can she get to the final four?

Bar a slow start in which she lost the first set of her first match, Francesca Schiavone has performed impeccably so far. In that first round game she lost the first set 7-5 to Regina Kulikova before winning the next two sets 6-3, 6-4 to progress to round two and she has not looked back since. She dropped just four games in her defeat of Sophie Ferguson in round two before beating eleventh seed Na Li 6-4, 6-2 to book her fourth round spot. In round four she defeated thirtieth seed Maria Kirilenko 6-4, 6-4 to find herself in the last eight of the French Open. Can the Italian keep her excellent performances coming and progress to the Semi Finals?

Despite being ranked third in the world Wozniacki’s performances can be hit and miss on clay and while she has performed well so far this may be the end of the line if Schiavone can continue to play the way she has played in the last week. Also, Schiavone knows how to beat her, having defeated the Dane in Zurich in 2008. Wozniacki has made vast improvements since then and she will not be easily defeated, but I feel that she will lose this one. My money is on Francesca Schiavone to win the match at odds of 6/4 with PaddyPower.com.
