Predicted Winner in BOLD
C = Correct, X = Incorrect
Grand Prix Hassan II – Morocco
Igor Andreev vs. Albert Montanes – Neither player has made much noise on tour recently. Andreev’s forehand is lethal, but he is slumping. I pick Montanes to advance. X – The first of many bad picks today.
U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship – Houston
Carlos Berlocq (6) vs. James Blake – This is tough to call. Blake has more weapons than Berlocq, but he has not played good tennis in over two years. Berlocq is a fighter (see below), and I think that makes the difference. Blake will spray some errors, and Berlocq will take advantage. C - I was sweating when the other two picks came up negative. Now I am 2-2 for the day with a Querrey win or loss deciding if I picked no better than a monkey throwing darts at names.
