US Open Day 3 Men’s Picks

US Open Day 3 Men’s Picks

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Grigor Dimitrov vs. Benoit Paire – Grigor is an enigma, but I think he can make strides toward the top 20.

Benjamin Becker vs. Ryan Harrison – Ryan should win this match, but he’s capable of melting down.

Igor Sijsling vs. Daniel Gimeno-Traver

Viktor Troicki (29) vs. Cedrik-Marcel Stebe – I see a mild upset here

Lukasz Kubot vs. Leonardo Mayer

Mikhail Kukushkin vs. Jarkko Nieminen – Jarkko should be comended for still plugging away, but I think his US Open ends in round 1.

Janko Tipsarevic (8) vs. Guillaume Rufin – Tipsy has had a solid year outside of the slams.  Playing through to his seed would be a great accomplishment.

Andreas Seppi (26) vs. Tommy Robredo – I’d love to pick Robredo whose fitness and professionalism always make him a tough out in a 3 out of 5 set match, but …

Philipp Kohlschreiber (19) vs. Michael Llodra – This is a potentially great match.

Grega Zemlja vs. Ricardo Mello

Brian Baker vs. Jan Hajek – Baker’s feel good 2012 continues

John Isner (9) vs. Xavier Malisse – Isner should win, but if the X-Man finds a way to return well, this could be dicey.

Tobias Kamke vs. Lleyton Hewitt – Rusty FTW

Jurgen Melzer vs. Bradley Klahn

David Ferrer (4) vs. Kevin Anderson – Not a great 1st round draw for Ferrer

Richard Gasquet (13) vs. Albert Montanes – Not a great 1st round draw for Gasquet

Mikhail Youzhny (28) vs. Gilles Muller

Steve Johnson vs. Rajeev Ram -The pride of Indianapolis advances

 Tommy Haas (21) vs. Ernests Gulbis – This would be a fun match to watch from court-side.
