Sony Ericsson/Miami Picks 3-28-2012

Let’s see if I can do a little better than yesterday.  Predicted winners in BOLD.

C = Correct, X = Incorrect

Quarterfinals
Agnieszka Radwanska (5) vs. Venus Williams – Radwanksa will feast on a lot of errors and advance.  C    6-4, 6-1 is about what I expected.  In 3-6 months, it could be a different story, but Venus is too rusty at the moment to beat such a steady player.

Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Marion Bartoli (7) – Vika should keep winning.  X This was a surprise, but Bartoli has a unique style of play that allows her to win when on paper it looks like she can’t possibly win. 

Rafael Nadal (2) vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6) – Tsonga has the weapons to beat Nadal and I have had bad luck picking against French players at this event, but Rafa is going to be too much for Tsonga on this surface.  C

Andy Murray (4) vs. Janko Tipsarevic (9) – I like Murray to set up a massive semifinal with Rafael Nadal.  C   4-6, 6-3, 6-4 was much closer than I expected, but Murray has a chance to cement a strong start to 2012 with another win or two in Miami.

Daily Totals: Correct – 3, Incorrect – 1

Tournament Totals: Correct 75, Incorrect 35
