No. 15 Juan Monaco (-111) vs. No. 20 Milos Raonic (-123)

First time meeting and if you think Raonic is just a big swinging dude with no clay finesse, you haven't kept up. He reached the semis at Barcelona with wins over Nicolas Almagro and Andy Murray before losing two tiebreaks to David Ferrer. But Monaco is the better clay player and I like the way he handles big servers, like John Isner, whom he held to eight aces on Houston clay last month. Both have been unchallenged at Roland Garros and will be fresh.

Pick: Monaco.

No. 20 Richard Gasquet (-312) vs. No. 112 Tommy Haas (+210)

Haas has become a sentimental favorite and he's more than just that. He's played very well. But he's into the ranked players now and though he cruised in straight sets last round while Gasquet needed four sets to beat Grigor Dimitrov, Tommy isn't getting by this round. Haas leads the head-to-head 2-1, but they haven't played since 2008.

Pick: Gasquet.

No. 9 Caroline Wozniacki (-167) vs. No. 23 Kaia Kanepi (+120)

The Danish former No. 1 has regressed this year and is only 3-3 on clay, though she hasn't been pushed in the first two rounds at the French. She has a 3-1 head-to-head edge on her Estonian foe  (all on hardcourts), but I like the bigger-hitting Kanepi in this match. She reached the semis at Belgrade, where she lost 7-6, 6-3 to No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanski. She's also has smooth sailing at Roland Garros.

Pick: Kanepi.
