DraftKings Tennis DFS Picks | May 4

Tennis DFS Pick: Nikoloz Basilashvili ($9,800) 

Opponent: Benoit Paire

Opened at : -410

Benoit Paire has been in terrible form, playing some of the worst tennis he has ever played as of recent (2-17 since 2020 on clay). He currently leads the head to head 3-1 but Nikoloz Basilashvili was the most recent winner of their matchups. Paire recently admitted to losing motivation to play tennis and being in it for the paychecks so he’s definitely not a player to target in any capacity. I expect Basilashvili to get the win in straight sets and post a good tennis dfs score.

Tennis DFS Pick: Maria Sakkari ($8,200) 

Opponent: Karolina Muchova

Odds to win: -160

This matchup features the #19 ranked Maria Sakkari vs the #20 ranked Karolina Muchova. Both of these players have been off to a great start this year and also hold victories over the #2 ranked Naomi Osaka. Sakkari has looked a bit more dominant in her wins and has been the busier play on clay-courts in recent years. Sakkari so far this tournament has the better second-serve-won percentage as well as the better return-points-won percentage. I expect Sakkari to advance to the next round after winning this match up in 3 sets.

Other plays: Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Jan-Lennard Struff, Cameron Norrie
