Bartoli: Yet to drop a set and beat Stephens in their only previous clash
Bartoli: Yet to drop a set and beat Stephens in their only previous clash

Andy landed 11 winners from 13 bets at Wimbledon last year while Barry nailed more than £800 of profit from £100 stakes at the recent French Open with his selections.

Here are their thoughts ahead of Tuesday's play.

Marion Bartoli to beat Sloane Stephens at 10/11 (Ladbrokes)

If the bookies are prepared to make this a pick 'em affair, I have to side with Bartoli as she's the player with the experience and a proven grasscourt record. Both women are stepping up in class compared to previous opponents but while Bartoli has cruised through to this stage without dropping a set, Stephens has been made to fight. If this goes long, her extra hours on court - including almost an hour longer on Monday - could work against her, especially as Bartoli is known for her ability to get the ball back in play time and time again. The French number one won the pair's only previous match - on a hardcourt last season - when Stephens' bigger serve did not overwhelm her and Bartoli's grasscourt pedigree can get her through this one.
