Wimbledon 2015: June 30th Gentlemen’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

[2] Roger Federer (SUI) v Damir Dzumhur (BIH) – The Fed should advance.

[3] Andy Murray (GBR) v Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) – This is not an ideal first round opponent for Murray, but the 2013 champion should also advance.

[10] Rafael Nadal (ESP) v Thomaz Bellucci (BRA) – I think a lefty will win.  That lefty is from Mallorca.

[6] Tomas Berdych (CZE) v Jeremy Chardy (FRA) – Berdych should win, but Chardy has enough weapons to make this interesting so long as his backhand holds up.

[13] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) v Gilles Muller (LUX) – Tsonga had some injury concerns coming in and faces a tough opponent.

[12] Gilles Simon (FRA) v Nicolas Almagro (ESP) – Almagro can serve big and we know about the quality of his ground strikes.  Simon has a better mental game though.

Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) v [WC] Kyle Edmund (GBR) – Not what the fans want

[18] Gael Monfils (FRA) v Pablo Carreño Busta (ESP)

[23] Ivo Karlovic (CRO) v [Q] Elias Ymer (SWE) – Ivo should serve well enough to win this match.

[LL] Luca Vanni (ITA) v [WC] James Ward (GBR) – A very lucky loser

[25] Andreas Seppi (ITA) v [WC] Brydan Klein (GBR)

[15] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) v Steve Darcis (BEL) – FLo has yet to find his 2014 grass court form.

Sam Querrey (USA) v Igor Sijsling (NED) – Sam played well last week, and I think that will carry over in this match.

[29] Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) v Pablo Andujar (ESP) – Una guerra civil?

Ruben Bemelmans (BEL) v Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) [20]

[22] Viktor Troicki (SRB) v Aleksandr Nedovyesov (KAZ)

Denis Istomin (UZB) v Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP) – Istomin should be feeling good coming off of a big week

Robin Haase (NED) v Alejandro Falla (COL)

Yuichi Sugita (JPN) v Blaz Kavcic (SLO)

Radek Stepanek (CZE) v [WC] Aljaz Bedene (GBR) – The worm will live to reach the second round.

[Q] Dustin Brown (GER) v Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) – Can Dredddy do it?

Adrian Mannarino (FRA) v [Q] Michael Berrer (GER) – I am putting faith in qualifying making Berrer match tough.

Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR) v Borna Coric (CRO)

Jiri Vesely (CZE) v Paolo Lorenzi (ITA)

Benoit Paire (FRA) v Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) – This could be a little crazy.

Vasek Pospisil (CAN) v [Q] Vincent Millot (FRA)

[Q] Nikoloz Basilashvili (GEO) v Facundo Bagnis (ARG) – Qually power

[31] Jack Sock (USA) v Sam Groth (AUS) – Sock is making big strides as of late.

Malek Jaziri (TUN) v James Duckworth (AUS)

Filip Krajinovic (SRB) v [WC] Nicolas Mahut (FRA) – Mahut played great at Roland Garros and then won a 250 level title on grass.  I am not counting him out in this match.

[30] Fabio Fognini (ITA) v Tim Smyczek (USA) – If Tim plays near his best tennis he can win, but he is the underdog.

Ernests Gulbis (LAT) v Lukas Rosol (CZE) – Who came up with this match?  I know the draw is random, but these two guys are characters on tour.  I think Rosol has more mometnum and more grass court mojo at the moment, but this could go either way (and get crazy in the process).
