What do I think will happen at the Masters 1000 Emeritus Event? Read on
Predicted Winners in BOLD
[14/W] Gaël Monfils (FRA) vs. [Q] Andrey Kuznetsov (RUS) H2H – I have come to expect the unexpected with Gael, but I think clay is his best surface.
 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs. [LL] Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) H2H – Tsonga has
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. [Q] Albert Ramos-Viñolas (ESP) H2H – The world #1 is in great form.
 David Ferrer (ESP) vs. Victor Estrella Burgos (DOM) H2H – Ferrer could be positioned for a big European clay court swing.
Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs. [WC] Lucas Pouille (FRA) H2H – Thiem can build on his strong play in Miami.
 Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs. Andreas Seppi (ITA) H2H – I like Robredo’s preparation and tactical discipline, but this is a 50-50 match.
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Fernando Verdasco (ESP) H2H – This match is worth the price of admission. On clay, I think Hot Sauce has a slight edge.
 Marin Cilic (CRO) vs. [PR] Florian Mayer (GER) H2H – Is Marin healthy? Is he rusty? Too many questions…
Juan Monaco (ARG) vs. Jiri Veselyy (CZE) H2H – Monaco is playing some of his best tennis. Also, he’s been working out with Rafa.
Jérémy Chardy (FRA) vs. [Q] Diego Schwartzman (ARG) H2H – Can the Argentine get to Chardy’s backhand? If so, an upset will not be shocking.
 Gilles Simon (FRA) vs. [WC] Benjamin Balleret (MON) H2H – I always like Simon
Adrian Mannarino (FRA) vs. Marcel Granollers (ESP) H2H
Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs. Martin Klizan (SVK) H2H – Kilzan’s momentum makes him a slight favorite in my eyes.
Bernard Tomic (AUS) vs. Andreas Haider-Maurer (AUT) H2H – Tomic on clay makes for an iffy pick.
