Tennis Masters Canada: Predictions for August 6

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Second Round
Richard Gasquet (7) vs. Martin Klizan – Kilzan is playing well, but I think Gasquet in Quebec wins this match.

Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Florian Mayer – Mayer is a tough opponent, but Novak should win.

Kei Nishikori (9) vs. Andreas Seppi – Nishikori could have a big week.

First Round
Jerzy Janowicz (15) vs. Julien Benneteau – Jerzy could be excused if he loses this one, but I think tennis’ newest sensation advances.

Vasek Pospisil vs. John Isner – So long as Isner is not played out from his weeks in Atlanta and DC, I think he wins.

Kevin Anderson vs. Alexandr Dolgopolov –  Anderson is climbing, and Dolgopolov is stagnating as of late.

Jarkko Nieminen vs. Filip Peliwo – I’ll take the veteran.

Alex Bogomolov Jr. vs. Michael Llodra – I like Llodra, but I am not picking him.

Grigor Dimitrov vs. Marcel Granollers – Consistency wins

Fabio Fognini (13) vs. Marcos Baghdatis – Baghdatis played well in DC, and this is not clay.  Still, Fognini is on enough of a role to be a solid favorite.

Milos Raonic (11) vs. Jeremy Chardy – I think Milos has to win here, but like Dolgopolov he’s been stagnant.

Gilles Simon (14) vs. Nikolay Davydenko – Simon says victory.

Tommy Haas (10) vs. David Goffin – Haas wins an intriguing match.

Yen-Hsun Lu vs. Frank Dancevic – The Canadian lefty has a winnable match,  but I can’t pick him.

Nicolas Almagro (12) vs. Radek Stepanek – Upset alert!  I am picking Nico, but this is close to a 50-50 match.

Mikhail Youzhny vs. Jurgen Melzer – Jurgen is a tough out, and Youzhny has been playing well.  This is a 50-50 match.
