Masters Miami 2015: March 28th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

A Big Slate of Matches Today

[11] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs Tim Smyczek (USA) – Jo’s comeback gets a boost.

[9] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Vasek Pospisil (CAN) – Dimitrov seems to be struggling to me where Pospisil has momentum in singles and doubles.

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs Martin Klizan (SVK) This should be fun, but Nole should win.

[4] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – Kei needs to reclaim some lost momentum.

[22] John Isner (USA) vs [WC] Andrey Rublev (RUS) – Isner needs some momentum and needs to take advantage of this draw.

[5] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs Teymuraz Gabashvili (RUS)

[19] Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) – Who owns South America?

[12] Gilles Simon (FRA) vs Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) – This is a 50-50 match, but Simon’s steadiness gives him my nod.

[21] Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Jack Sock (USA) – Once again, either of these two can meltdown.

[6] David Ferrer (ESP) vs Federico Delbonis (ARG) – Ferrer has been taking names in 2015.

[16] Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) – Mr. steady and great preparation vs. a totally unpredictable youngster – I have no idea.

[17] Gael Monfils (FRA) vs [Q] Filip Krajinovic (SRB)

[31] Jérémy Chardy (FRA) vs Jurgen Melzer (AUT) – Tuna Melzer wins.

[18] David Goffin (BEL) vs Borna Coric (CRO) – This is the match I would want to watch if I had tickets.  Goffin is the world’s best 16-and-under player (I jest).  Coric has a great deal of power/talent, and Goffin is a tremendous counter-puncher.  In this spot, I will pick Goffin, but in 18 months I would take Coric.

[26] Lukas Rosol (CZE) vs [Q] Alexander Zverev (GER)

[29] Fernando Verdasco (ESP) vs [Q] James Duckworth (AUS)

[20] Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs [Q] Alejandro Falla (COL) – “I didn’t spend 4 years in evil medical school to be called mister,” said Dr. Ivo.

[30] Gilles Muller (LUX) vs [Q] Steve Darcis (BEL)

[28] Adrian Mannarino (FRA) vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP)

[14] Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs Juan Monaco (ARG) – Monaco plays too hard and is too steady for Gulbis.

[32] Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs Simone Bolelli (ITA)

[13] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs Jerzy Janowicz (POL) – Jerzy can always go either way.
