Monte-Carlo 2015: April 16th Predictions for a Sweet 16

Predicted Winners in BOLD

This is a great schedule of matches

[7] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) v [9] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) H2H – Someone forgot to tell these two that one-handed backhands are an endangered species.  Stan’s form was great in his opening match, but somehow I think Grigor finds a way in 3 sets.

[WC/14] Gael Monfils (FRA) v [2] Roger Federer (SUI) H2H – Roger needed to save a match point vs. Gael in NYC.  Then Gael clobbered him in a Davis Cup match.  This could go either way, but I think Roger is the favorite.

[3] Rafael Nadal (ESP) v [15] John Isner (USA) H2H – Isner can wins sets off of Rafa on clay, but can and will are two different things.

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB)Andreas Haider-Maurer (AUT) H2H – Nole rolls

[16] Tommy Robredo (ESP) v [4] Milos Raonic (CAN) H2H – If Robredo returns well, my pick will look silly.

[6] Tomas Berdych (CZE) v [12] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) H2H

[11] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) v [8] Marin Cilic (CRO) H2H – Battle of the returning wounded?

[10] Gilles Simon (FRA) v [5] David Ferrer (ESP) H2H – Ferrer’s history on clay vs. Simon is solid.
