Wimbledon 2014: Predicted Gentlemen’s Semifinalists

Tennis Abides: Dan Martin on Tennis and Life

The Draw is Here – One oddity is that the top 4 seeds all have a Wimbledon final victory over one of the other top 4 seeds: Djokovic d. Nadal 2011 final, Murray d. Djokovic 2013 final, Federer d. Murray 2012 final, Federer d. Nadal 2006 & 2007 final, Nadal d. Federer 2008 final

I Got 3 of 4 French Open Semifinalists Correct – I missed on Gulbis, but I did not pick Federer so I felt good about my skills of prognostication.

Novak Djokovic’s Quarter

  • Due to Wimbledon’s seeding formula, Novak Djokovic gets the top seed.
  • Radek Stepanek who was a semifinalist at The Queen’s Club is not an ideal 2nd round opponent for Nole
  • Mikhail Youzhny has a draw and surface in front of him that might help him keep his top 25 ranking longer than one might expect.
  • Ernests Gulbis should reach at least the 3rd round
