Predicted Winners in BOLD
Atlanta Surface – Hard Court
Different tournament, but the same result for these future doubles partners
4 Andy Roddick vs. Gilles Muller
Roddick won Eastbourne and should have a slight edge vs. Muller to win a 2nd title in 3 outings. Muller has had a knack of upsetting higher ranked players throughout his career. He beat Andy Roddick in the first round of the 2005 US Open. Still, Roddick should win this match and head to London with confidence.
Gstaad Surface- Clay Court
1 Janko Tipsarevic vs. Thomaz Bellucci
Janko won last week and should win again this week. It is nice to see Bellucci playing well as he should be a solid player week in and week out.
Hamburg Surface – Clay Court
Tommy Haas vs. 3 Juan Monaco
I enjoy watching both of these guys play. Monaco seems like the classic over achiever who competes so well. Haas is 34 and is the last man to beat Roger Federer on grass. I think Haas gets the nod as he is playing in Germany and has to be close to the end of his career. On paper, Monaco has to be favored, but I think Haas wins his second title in Germany for 2012.
