US Open 2013: Day 6 Men’s Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Third Round
Tommy Robredo (19) vs. Daniel Evans – Robredo’s return has been a feel good story in 2013.

David Ferrer (4) vs. Mikhail Kukushkin – Ferrer came into the event in poor form, but his draw might be the cure for the blues.  

Janko Tipsarevic (18) vs. Jack Sock – I am taking Sock in a 50-50(ish) match.  

Rafael Nadal (2) vs. Ivan Dodig – Dodig has had a nice run, but his 2011 win over Rafa in Montreal is not going to help him here.

Roger Federer (7) vs. Adrian Mannarino – Federer looking more like the 3rd or 4th seed to this point than the 7th seed.

Richard Gasquet (8) vs. Dmitry Tursunov (32) – Tursunov’s recent form has been a nice surprise, but I think his run ends here.

Milos Raonic (10) vs. Feliciano Lopez (23) – Lopez is fortunate in one sense to not be playing someone who will not force him into a lot of long rallies, but Raonic is in good form.

John Isner (13) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber (22) – Kohlschreiber can keep the ball low and use his variety to beat Isner.  The big man is playing well as of late though, and I think he sets up a match with Nadal.
