US Open Day 4 Men’s Picks

Projected Winners in BOLD

Second Round
Fernando Verdasco (25) vs. Albert Ramos – I’m picking a mild upset.

Milos Raonic (15) vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu – Raonic’s serve should send him to the 3rd round.

Marcel Granollers (24) vs. James Blake – Blake’s US Open ends against the solid Granollers.

Gilles Simon (16) vs. Jimmy Wang – Simon survived a 5 set first round tilt.

Kei Nishikori (17) vs. Tim Smyczek

Nicolas Almagro (11) vs. Philipp Petzschner – Almagro’s serve has been big in 2012 and it will help him at this US Open.  This match could go either way, but I like Nico.

Flavio Cipolla vs. Jack Sock – A coming out party for Sock?

Mardy Fish (23) vs. Nikolay Davydenko

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (5) vs. Martin Klizan

Jeremy Chardy (32) vs. Matthew Ebden – Chardy’s solid play continues.

Tomas Berdych (6) vs. Jurgen Zopp

Feliciano Lopez (30) vs. Pablo Andujar – Andujar will make F-Lo hit a lot of backhands.

Sam Querrey (27) vs. Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo – I could see this going either way, but Querrey has some momentum from recent tournaments.

Marin Cilic (12) vs. Daniel Brands – Cilic is returning to his 2009 and early 2010 form.

Roger Federer (1) vs. Bjorn Phau – Fed will win this match.

    Hey Dan.
    I’ve just posted a crazy story on my blog that has to do with PEDs and what it has to do with tennis.
    The content that I wrote is pretty lunatic, and many people may hate me for this, but I would like to have your opinion on what you think.
