US Open Day 10 Men’s and Women’s Picks

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Quarterfinals

Roger Federer (1) vs. Tomas Berdych (6) – Berdych is playing well enough to pull the upset.  He has wins over Roger at the 2004 Olympic games and 2010 Wimbledon Championships.  Still, Federer is the favorite.

Maria Sharapova (3) vs. Marion Bartoli (11) 0-4 suspended – I am sticking with yesterday’s pick, but this match is more complicated than it was yesterday.

Andy Murray (3) vs. Marin Cilic (12) – Murray gets some revenge for 2009.

Serena Williams (4) vs. Ana Ivanovic (12) – Serena FTW

Sara Errani (10) vs. Roberta Vinci (20) – Successful doubles partners go head-to-head.  I am going to pick Vinci based on how much I liked her game on Monday, but Errani deserves to be the higher seed based on Paris.

Fourth Round

Novak Djokovic (2) vs. Stanislas Wawrinka (18) 2-0 suspended – Nole is up a break.

Juan Martin del Potro (7) vs. Andy Roddick (20) 6-6 suspended – Roddick had a chance to salt away an early lead.  This can go either way, but I think that Delpo is the favorite if the emotional context were not present.

Janko Tipsarevic (8) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber (19) 5-2 suspended – I have to stick with yesterday’s pick, but it is obvious that Kohlschreiber will need to bounce back if he can win.  Will Tipsy ride the bad boy of twitter designation to some success? Did I just type bad boy of twitter?
