Yesterday’s slate was filled with monster scores as well as some surprising upsets. We are now down to a 21-match slate but the first place prize is now $15,000 up from $10,000. A great mixture of WTA to ATP faces again so let’s dive right in to today’s DraftKings tennis DFS picks for Thursday’s slate.

DraftKings Tennis DFS Picks | July 1
Tennis DFS Pick: Marcos Giron ($6,300)
Opponent: Hubert Hurkacz
Opened at : +168
Hubert Hurkacz looked impressive in his return to grass-courts granted it was against Lorenzo Musetti who has just 5 career matches on this surface. At 1-2 on grass-courts for the year it still leaves questions as to what form Hurkacz is currently in. Marcos Giron enters this match in great form winning 5 of his last 6 with 4 of those wins coming in straight sets. Career-wise Hurkacz has been a below average player on grass-courts, so I expect the in-form Giron to win this matchup in 4-sets.
Tennis DFS Pick: Angelique Kerber ($9,400)
Opponent: Sara Sorribes Tormo
Odds to win: -320
Grass-courts are the surface where Angelique Kerber holds her highest win rate (71%). Kerber is fresh off of a finals victory in Bad Homburg and looks to continue her dominance on grass-courts against Sara Sorribes Tormo. Tormo has looked good in the 4 grass-court wins she’s had this year but the level of competition she’s faced compared to Kerber is vast. Kerber in her current form should roll through Tormo in a dominant straight sets win enroute to a good tennis dfs score.
Other plays: Jelena Ostapenko, Alize Cornet, Clara Burel, Nao Hibino
