Del Potro vs. Rafa and Nole vs. Tsonga Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Juan Martin del Potro vs. Rafael Nadal

JMDP won last week in Tokyo and has a longer winning streak than Rafa at the moment.  JMDP has had some historical success versus Rafa.  His height makes some of Nadal’s high bounding spin a liability for the Spaniard.  If JMDP serves bombs and holds routinely, he has a great chance to win because he can crack returns and be offensive in points.  Still, I think the more ifs a player needs to win makes him less likely to win.  Rafa struggled a bit vs. Berlocq and Wawrinka.  This could go either way, but I think Rafa wins in 3 sets.

Novak Djokovic vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Tsonga’s semifinal showing to this point has him looking more promising for the World Tour Finals.  Still, this is a pretty straight-forward prediction.  Nole won last week and Tsonga is likely a bit rusty.  I think Djokovic wins in 2 sets.

Shocking to pick the top two players in the world …
